difficult to get fittings to seal, but good once sorted
on 9 May 2016
I had a lot of trouble fitting this shower, but now that it is up it works well, and runs quietly. I bought this as a replacement for our old Triton Power shower. Unfortunately the hot and cold feed are on opposite sides to how they were on the old one, which meant I had to do some re-plumbing. Then the push in elbow fittings provided with the shower did not seal, no matter what I did. I bought some copper elbow and pipe and tried these. They were better but there was still a continual drip. The only solution was to wrap PTFE tape round the ends of the pipe - then push them into the fittings on the shower. Then once I started the shower the motor seemed to hunt continuously - seems I did not prime it enough! You have to plug in a special link on the control panel and run it for a few minutes to prime the shower - you need to run this for a good 5 minutes. Once all this was sorted the shower runs fine - lots of power, and a good temp range.
