Shower – Body Jets

Our waterproof wall panels can be used in all types of cubicle and with all types of shower – power shower, electric shower, mixer shower, venturi shower. The following image shows the inside of a cubicle that has had a comprehensive showering set-up installed. As well as the drench shower head there are several body jets installed on two walls.

Installations of this type would require a reasonably large pump to ensure an adequate water supply to all of the various nozzles and spray head. Large shower pumps can get through a lot of water very quickly so it is vital to get your heating system checked to ensure it is up to the task of supplying this type of shower set-up. This type of system can cost quite a bit to install and are not cheap to run.

We would usually recommend that a thin bead of silicone is run inside the groove of the tongue & groove of our shower wall panels, especially if there is pumped water being used as the pumps can generate quite high pressure streams of water. It is also worth considering using panels on your shower cubicle ceiling as there can be a lot of deflected spray that bounces up onto the ceiling. The volume of water produced by shower pumps can also overwhelm standard waste pipes so adequate drainage must also be factored into the equation when designing the shower cubicle
and the showering system.
