Great but breaks if it gets too wet!!
on 3 May 2012
We've been through two of these now; the supplier kindly replaced the first one when it stopped working after a month or so. The second one lasted about the same amount of time. The problem was that the suction cup didn't hold it on the wall properly so it fell on the shower floor, and while it can cope with being splashed in the shower, it can't cope with being immersed in water. Bit of a problem for something which lives in a shower cubicle and falls on the floor easily. If I were to buy another one, I'd use the supplied cord to hang it up as well as the suction cup.
Apart from that, I like the fact that once you program in a time, it stays at that time so you just hit the 'start' button at the start of every shower. The display helps to cue you in to timing your shower. If you want to program it the suggested way, ie by volume of water used, then it's a nuisance to set up - you have to fill a bag (supplied) with water and time it, to calibrate the timer against your shower. It's not always obvious what to do next and we ended up having to repeat this several times. Once set up, though, it was great... until it fell on the floor and stopped working.
