Answer – Mira recommend against using ‘up-and-over’ pipework as any air not vented out of the system will accumulate at the high-level pipe run. This will not only diversely affect the shower’s performance but can ultimately lead to an air-lock causing the power shower’s integral pump to burn out. Mira therefore recommends that the hot supply pipework drops from the top of the hot water cylinder and travels at a low level before rising up to the power shower.
