What Size Shower Should I Buy?
Electric showers are rated in kilo watts and the size of the shower in KW s determines the size of the cable that is required for the installation. For example an 8.5 kw electric shower has a current demand of approx. 35 amps so the size of the cable required to install this shower must have a current carrying capacity of at least 35 Amps and a circuit protection device, MCB or mechanical circuit breaker rated at no more than 40 amps.
