Are Digital Showers Reliable?

Are Digital Showers Reliable?

Digital showers are a relatively new idea, first appearing on the market in 2001 with the revolutionary Aqualisa Quartz digital shower a product that has stood the test of time and after many advancements and improvements is still available today.

The Aqualisa Quartz digital shower was different in appearance to any other shower of its time by separating the shower valve from the control, Aqualisa achieved something quite spectacular a modern, simple to install shower with fantastic temperature control which offered absolute precision to within 1 degree of your specified temperature.

How does it work?

In the case of the Aqualisa Quartz, hot and cold water is carefully blended in a box known as a processor, which is roughly the size of a shoebox and can be located as far as 10 meters away from the showering area. This digital processor then delivers perfectly blended water direct to the showerhead through a single pipe, gone are the days where you have to dig away the wall to install a chunky mixer shower valve, this not only makes installation easier but also maintenance.


Over the years Aqualisa have improved on and added to the already exceptional Quartz Digital shower, with additional items now available such as wired and wireless remote controls which allow operation of your shower from up to 10 meters away and a simple to use valve system with a reassuring LED light which indicates when your water has reached its desired temperature, all you need to do is simply turn it on.
