Tank showers have a self-contained water supply in a large stainless steel tank. The shower is gravity fed from the tank above. This means that the shower will operate independently of a mains water supply and power supply.
Ease of deployment
As the tank showers do not need to be plumbed in they can be deployed in areas far from a water supply. This makes them ideal for use in the most distant areas of large industrial complexes, on docksides or in any other area where a mains water supply would be difficult or costly to install.
The tank shower is an intrinsically more expensive unit than a plumbed in shower. However, the cost associated with installation is often far less. When one takes into consideration the cost of pipework and labour required to plumb in a non-tank shower, it is often the case that the tank unit works out cheaper overall.
The tank shower is a very simple device. Essentially it consists of a large tank over a shower head with a simple on/off mechanism. This simplicity means that the tank will always work when required. Disruptions to the water supply or power supply will not impede the basic operation of a tank shower unit. It should be remembered that in the event of a disaster, such as a large explosion, water supply could be disrupted at precisely the moment a shower is needed.
3 Tank Shower Ranges
We build tank showers in four different sizes and in three ranges. The standard tank shower is a basic shower with multiple add-on features. Our heated shower range has an integrated immersion heater within the tank thus ensuring a tempered water supply. And finally our panelled range of tanks provides protection from the elements when being used.
