    I need to change my 6 way consumer box, and I need some advice on which is the best box to purchase.

    I currently have 2 ring mains, 2 lighting circuits, 1 40 amp shower, 16amp emmersion.

    I need to add another ring main for my extension and a lighting circuit and another shower.

    would someone please advise.

    Go for a WYLEX Split load one, with 30ma RCD for the Ring Mains etc, of ideally say 12 ways, to allow room for future needs.

    TWO SHOWERS? What KW ratings are they? I'd check your max demand & diversity numbers before choosing another electric shower, especially if you are looking at ratings of over 9KW.
