Hi Debi,

It all depends, different showers have the electric feed and water feed on different sides, some have a switchable water feed so it can be positioned either way, most shower brand websites have technical data sheets available so you can see what side the feeds are on compared to your old one. Like for like is a good bet but its not necessary to get the same brand.

Hi Sparkles

If you're looking for an electric shower with multiple water & cable entries then something similar to the Triton T70Z electric shower is a good option.
