Default Plumbers advice needed...maybe work

Hi folks long time been on. Been stuck on early shifts and falling asleep when i get home.

Well anyways im after some advice and maybe a price.

Basically i want to fit an electric shower that feeds from the bath cold tap. Pipework will need to run from under the taps, length of bath and up the wall. Wires will also need fitting but that shouldn't be too hard as the house has just had a rewire.
Tiling will also need doing but not essential....so any tips, advice or even some ballpark quotes.
Even if you can recommend a plumber from tyne and wear.

I would do it myself but im lazy and dont trust myself...

Oh and even installing an outside tap for a hose pipe might also be on the books

Default tips

hi it depends on what sort of shower u want and where your water tank is if in loft direct feed what temp shower you want kilowatts from what i can remember the key facts are a 9kw shower or above uses 10mm cable pull cord switch has to be away from shower and all depends on your fuse box as to if you need a rcb with a mcb and shower has to be wired to the fuse box on its own like a cooker not tapped of a light switch which i have seen

Hi mate thanks for the quick reply im not too sure on where the water tank is...tbh ive been in the loft numerous times and never seen it lol
Im not too sure on this temp thing lol all im after is a shower that gives out hot water at a good pressure.
The fuse box is located in the kitchen which is directly below the bathroom and has been recently renewed with all the wiring in the house. Im sure its a PCB one but there is plenty of space on it for extra connections. I can take photos if required. Thanks again

hi in that case you just need a electric shower standard one not a power shower ect a mira shower is a good shower and i alway use 10mm wire even if you get a 6kw shower as if want to upgrade later all you need to buy is the shower and if fuse box is below shower you will probly need about 30 metres of cable and a shower switch and a bit of piping the biggest out lay will probly be the cable so if you run a bit of cable from switch pull cord to shower and connect up the water supply i try to use the connectors on copper pipe with olives as these tend to seal lovely as all i would do is get someone to connect the pull cord switch to the fuse box save you a small fortune then they can sign it off and check the wiring you have in place
