Does a Plumber or Electrician Fit Electric Showers?

Electric showers are a wonderful addition to any bathroom because they can deliver hot water on demand alongside many other benefits depending on the specific type of electric shower installed. However, an electric shower will only be able to deliver the desired results if it is properly installed. In fact, an incorrectly-installed electrical shower can pose significant risk to both you and your property.

So, who can best install your electric shower? A plumber or an electrician?

Truthfully, your electrical shower can be installed by either a plumber or an electrician as long as he/she is Part P Certified. This is because UK legislation states that any electrical work to be performed in a shower room, bathroom, kitchen, or other wet room counts as “special cases” and so should only be undertaken by a part P-certified electrician. Using any technician that is not Part P certified for such a project would count as a breach of the law.
