5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for money, 23 Sept. 2010
By 
Our Mira event shower died on us after 10 years. It did not come as a shock as it had been making weird noises for almost a year now and our plumber had been saying for a while that it was on its last legs. We thought 10 years was pretty good. We decided to buy a new shower rather than just fixing the motor which had burnt out as after 10 years other parts are also likely to fail. I called (the excellent) Mira customer services to check which model would be the best replacement and they said the Event XS, although all the Mira showers would fit the pipes. I looked at the GO and VIGUOUR but decided to stick with the EVENT as we had been pleased with it and it seems a good middle ground, not the cheapest or the most expensive. I also decided to stick with the cheaper manual rather than thermostatic one as we had had no problems in the past with temperature control.

The price on Amazon is great and in September 2010 the cheapest I could find on the web and £80 cheaper than what our plumber could get from his supplier. The service from this supplier was prompt and we received it within 3 days.

I am not DIY minded so our plumber fitted the shower. It took him 3 hours and was a little bit of a faff but mostly because our old one was harder than expected to remove. He had to drill new holes for the box. I had anticipated that as the shower is a bit bigger than the old one. The soap dish comes as a seperate so new holes had to be drilled for that too. The new shower is great. The power is good and the shower head is very pleasant. I find it less noisy than our old one, but it is possible that because the motor was burning out it was making more of a racket. As it is against a stud wall a level of noise is unavoidable.

All in all I am very pleased with this product and the price on Amazon was very competitive. I now hope that it will last another 10 years!
