This shower is an updated version of the previous model which I found to be very reliable and gave me 12 years of daily use without any hassel. When I fitted the new shower even the screw holes for the riser rail and shower were exactly the same. If this new model performs as well as the old one I would not hesitate to recommend this as a good buy. Next review hopefully 2024.

Had used Triton's shower selecting tool on their website to identify the best product for us, so we knew this was going to be what we needed. Decided to take the risk on a new seller as they were offering the best price. Wasn't disappointed. Arrived quickly and well packaged. Installed and working perfectly. We have very low water pressure but only need to have this on the middle power setting to get a good shower. Would recommend.

This is the first power shower I've needed, & this is only because I've moved to a house with very low water pressure - I found myself running around the bath, trying to get hit by the occassional droplet of water that came out of the shower head :(
My previous shower was run by a combination boiler, so the pressure was excellent & heat was instant - I wanted this simplicity again, so decided on this shower.
As power showers go, this was quite a good price. I also looked at many reviews to see how it performed, & it came up with a good rating at most sites.
Delivery was well within the specified time-frame. However, there are some things you should know about power showers if you are planning to change from an ordinary 'over the bath / run from your water tank' type shower. These are the problems I came up against in my quest to have a decent shower:
When the shower arrived, all was ok (Happy Times)
Then, I couldn't get an electrician to wire in an RCD unit, this shower MUST have it's own trip switch. (Sad Times).
By this time it was nearly Christmas (2013) & I couldn't get hold of a plumber. When I managed to get a plumber round to see what the job was, he informed me that this shower couldn't be run from a mains water supply, but had to be supplied by the cold water storage tank in the loft. But, because the shower can pump through upto 14 litres per minute, I would have to have another cold water tank fitted in conjunction with the one already in the loft - thus giving enough water to supply the shower on full power for aprox 15 minutes. Bear in mind, that if the water runs out, the motor which would be trying to pump the water through would burn out.
So, long story short - it took nearly 2 months from ordering the shower to using it for the first time.
Now, you want to know if it was worth the wait don't you?
The shower is brilliant. On half power & half temperature, it is perfect. I have tried boosting the power to full, but it's a bit too much. Although the temperature is good on half, there's plenty of scope for visitors with asbestos skin. The one-touch button to turn it on & off is brilliant too - after the last ordinary shower I had, where I had to turn it on like a tap, then adjust the temperature, then adjust it again... this Triton is luxury. It just gets to the right pressure & temperature with one button.
So, the verdict:
Be aware of the preperation work which may have to be done before having it fitted. If this is just replacing another power shower, you'll be fine, but if this is a new install, check with your 'Sparky' & 'Plumber'.

The instructions are very good so the shower was easy to install. The pipe entries are push fit for copper or plastic pipe making life very easy. In use, the shower maintains a nice constant temperature and has plenty of power (far more than the Triton shower that I replaced). If this lasts as long as my old unit, I shall be very pleased.

wish I'd bought a power shower ages ago and it makes showering so enjoyable! I had an electric shower installed when I had a new bathroom put in 3 years ago, and the pressure went very poorly (previously not bad at all from a gravity fed system). This new shower arrived within about 2 days and was fitted by a plumber, using the existing electric connections and once again tapping into the pipes from the hot water tank. The flow is adjustable, only needing to be about half strength to be a really powerful shower, and the thermostatic control means it heats up very quickly - no need to run the shower for minutes before getting in. It does make more noise than the electric shower, but doesn't seem to bother anyone else in the house, and has never woken anyone up. All in all a really great shower!
