I bought this as a replacement for the shower in my en-suite. I was unable to go for the higher KW rated as I was advised by the sparky that it could blow the consumer unit if I used it at the same time as the 10.5KW shower I have in the main bathroom.I am so glad I have gone for this one. It's no frills but does exactly what you want. It delivers piping hot water for long showers and uses less power than it's bigger brother. I thoroughly recommend this shower and for those who complained it did not have a pump, well of course it doesn't, it's an electric shower and not a power shower, it will only deliver water at the pressure your supply feeds it!!

Bought this to replace the existing one that was no longer working. This was apparently so simple to install as it has the 5 water and wire entry points. No pipework or wire work had to be changed. It took just 15 minutes to remove the old one and install this one. Excellent. Also the shower itself performs well. My son - who fitted this - has since bought a second one to install for a friend of his. Very reasonable price too because I shopped around at Argos, Screwfix and Ebay and Amazon (as usual) could not be beaten especially with prime delivery the next day.

We bought this to replace a much more expensive electric shower which was not reliable with hot/cold water.What a great shower this is, even in very cold weather minus -12C there is plenty of hot water with pressure, I wish we had this shower years ago. Very easy to fit, only 20 minutes.

Amazing how much you learn when you research a purchase on Amazon - so this review is an attempt to give back so to speak. We had an old Triton T70i shower which suddenly stopped passing water (sorry) and some online research identified that this was probably a failed solenoid, £15 to replace on the auction site that shall remain nameless. Or I could buy the Seville for £52.

Since our T70i was 14 years old and used daily it was worth splashing out (sorry) on a new one. My decision was assisted by the fact that Amazon were offering a box-damaged one for £42. Received today on Prime delivery, and true to their word, it was just the box that was damaged, the shower unit is brand new and I was able to register the guarantee. It has taken me around 2 hours to install (half of which was spent undoing the compression joint on the old shower) and we now have a shower again, thank goodness.

Some key points that may be helpful.

a. The old T70i came in 7KW and 8KW variants. If you have the 7KW model, your wiring will probably be 6mm and your breaker 32A. Any replacement more powerful than 7.5KW requires 10mm wiring and 45A breaker. I could see my way to a new breaker, but not new wiring, so had to buy a 7.5KW shower

b. Seville seems to be the only Triton available in low wattage AND this kit is very good value. The shower head bundled with the Seville alone costs £20 to buy separately and is far nicer than our old one. Lower wattage means lower energy bills so don't hanker after the 8.5KW-10.5KW models. The water flow on our new Seville is fine and hot, it seems a bit better than the T70i, I guess the extra 0.5KW makes a difference.

c. The Seville unit footprint is a good match for the T70i except the top and bottom are curved rather than square, and the lower securing screw needs a new hole in the wall. The upper wall screw and the pipe connection are in the same place. I didn't even have to cut the mains wire like some other reviewers, was able to loop it and squash down under the cover.

d. I did not try and fit the riser rail bundled with the Seville, from reading other reviews the fixing points might not be an exact match which is a bore. The hose fittings are standard so I was able to use my old riser rail and bracket with the new head, problem solved.

e. You will need a new compression olive for the pipe connector, a wall plug for the new hole, and possibly a new compression nut if you mangle the old one like I did. Everything else in the box.

This is not a trendy shower but it does the job with competence and is fantastic value. Well done Triton for making the old T70i so reliable, and for making the Seville low cost and backward compatible. Well done Amazon for accurate descriptions, excellent value and speedy delivery.

Good luck....

I bought this to replace my old broken 7kw Triton T70 shower which was ideal for me. For some unknown reason 7.5 kw showers are not available in the shops. Due to the wiring for my old istallation which could not handle more than 7.8kw this shower was ideal.
It gives out plenty of heat for the kw so saves on energy!
Even in the icy winter I haven't even needed to put it on full power.
Having two dials, one to switch on the unit and set the preset heat and the other to adjust overall heat was simlar to my old model.
The head has an adjustable jet too.
Insallation was straight forward though the only thing I didn't like was the way the caps that the cover the screws to the shower head pole to the wall were fiddly to clip on and no doubt may break off if I ever needed to take to pole off the wall.
Otherwise a great shower, good purchace.

Excellent value for money. Easy to fit the plumbing yourself if you read the instructions carefully, twice. Electrics best done by an electrician, take no chances. Five different sprayhead patterns, full dial temperature control, and seasonal pressure control. This looks and feels very stylish indeed. The instructions are very good. They have thought of everything in this item, I don't know what else you would want in a shower!

Only critiscism is that the shower head hose could be 1 foot longer, but thats 1 mans opinion. One review on here says "not powerful enough" or words to that effect, but if your incoming water supply isn't a reasonable pressure, no electric shower will be strong enough.

I like this unit, looks good too!

I bought this to replace an existing 7kw shower and didnt want the expense of upgrading the power supply to accommodate a higher powered shower. Retail outlets dont appear to provide anything less than 8kw. This particular model provides everything that I expect from a shower. Simple to operate, instant hot water, no waiting and would go hotter than I could stand if I wanted it to. Excellent shower with no bells and whistles, but does the job it is intended for perfectly.

Spotted this at £45.00 from amazon.
Bought it as a replacement for an older Triton 9.5kW
Only niggle was the shower hose is only a metre - which is a bit naff
If you do install it yourself read the manual carefully because you could blow a small safety pressure valve called a PRD which can rarely be reset but can be replaced with a new one (around £7.50 on here)
If you are going to replace your own shower, youtube has some good vids worth watching before having a go

I live in a very hard water area, the reason for the demise of my last shower, and did not want to pay a lot of money just to have another unit fur up. Could not believe how inexpensive this one was, a third of price of the one it replaced, that I had bought a replacement heating vessel for at about the cost of this Triton a couple of years ago. Anyway delivery was quick and feedback from the senders good, easy to fit just went onto the old water pipe that sticks out from the wall with two compression elbows and the electrics just the same as changing a plug. The only thing I can not comment on is the head rail, flexible hose and shower head as I left my old one in place and did not even unpack the new one to look at it. Works well, does a fine job, I would recommend this shower to anyone and think that anybody with basic DIY skills should have no trouble fitting this cheap but well built unit.
