Does the back of your electric shower resemble this ?
So your old shower has been tiled around rather than behind - someone has used a block connector to extend the wires ?
New replacement showers require a flat surface to fix to - otherwise your warranty is void ! The reason being that when the unit is fixed to an un-even wall the unit will flex and twist this may bind the switches making them stick in the on or off position or the casing will not fit correctly.
Before - Quite often we come across this scenario where the shower has been tiled around the outside. Manufacturers look for this so they can renege on their warranty FACT ! We have a solution that avoids having to fill in the hole left by the previous shower.
We always replace any block connectors with a purpose made crimps and insulation sleeves.
After - So I tidy up the wiring and fit a new acrylic panel which covers the imprint of the previous shower.
The new panel supplied and fitted from £49 (300 x 500mm seen below) and £69 for the 400 x 600mm panel - but only when already fitting a new shower. This works out far cheaper than employing a tradesman to make good the tiles - wiring - plumbing.
These panels are a solid 5mm thick giving a rigid base to support your new shower they are very striking. Choose a colour to co-ordinate or to contrast your tile scheme.
