The shower is over the bath. I intend to replace the bath with a walk in shower unit and was hoping to keep the Mira shower itself..
The Mira 415, which is now about 14 years old, operates in conjunction with a combi boiler.
Recently in cold weather it has all on to be quite hot enough when the temperature override button is depressed and the knob turned to the limit.
I wondered whether there might be a worthwhule way of overcoming the problem.
I would be interested in your comments.
I am tending to think that it would be wise to get a new thermostatic shower (with a flow control knob) - have you any recommendations? I believe the Mira is not thermostatic - is that correct?
I would appreciate your comments.

Thank you. I understand the professional 'needs more information to provide a full answer' but I am not clear what is required.
As mentioned I am getting a walk in shower enclosure and was intending to use the existing Mira 415 shower but the problem that may occur in the winter months re ensuring getting it hot enough is a disincentive unless there is possibly a way of adjusting it etc which would not need a lot of time or expense.
Since raising this question I am thinking the best thing may well be for me to install a new shower - one that is readily controllable. I believe digital ones are very expensive and am wondering about one with with flow adjuster and thermostatic control. It would
have the overhead shower with a diverter for a hand held shower. Actually I believe Mira make such showers but there may be better units.
I would welcome comment and advice on the matters raised please. Thank you.
Thank you Neil.
The unit is exposed.
The temperaturejust before the overide button is depressed is warm.
In answer to your third question the temperature when the dial won't turn any more is just about hot enough.
