I'd def go for one of each.

One of each for me seems a wise choice. Had a few power cuts down the years during which, not being able to have a shower was never a thought or concern?

We have 2 en suites both with,

https://www.screwfix.com/p/aqualisa-...r-shower/2115j

Aqualisa, one of them over 10 years has had a fault, the great thing about them is they are totally self serviceable, the part cost £30 from amazon (genuine) and was fixed in ten minutes loads on line.


Variable power, great constant thermostatic. Absolutely fantastic. No screwfix seems to be the cheapest and very easy to fit.
