wire connection


i plan to fit a new shower however when i had removed the old one i have discovered that the supply wire will be too short to fit the new shower (240v) ,is there anyway of extending the existing wire about 6" or will i have to run a new supply (this would be a nightmare as the wall is tiled.)

You probably will not get any answers with the question worded that way since everyone is just going to wonder why you need 240v in a shower?

Ya that's what I was wondering? Unless it's U.K. and a light in the shower.

yes here in the uk most showers are 240v including the power (mixer) showers (no light included.) perhaps what i am looking for is water proof trunking.

Are you talking about a heater that heats the water right in the shower, as opposed to a separate water heater elsewhere in the house with separate hot and cold pipes coming to the shower? If so, we don't have those here in the US, thus the confusion in answers you're getting.

You will need to contact a local UK electrician to get the proper answer. I don't think any of them hang out on this forum.
