Sweet!

I am currently looking for a power shower for my new house! Was about double this price the one I looked at, so will have to compare and see if it's worth looking at this instead :-D

lol @ the "power shower"!

Surely with this being a 9.5kW jobba you wouldn't be interested? That'd be like saying you want a motor that does 0-60 in 5 seconds or less and then going "Oooo! great deal on that Corsa! I'll have it..." :-D

I am interested if its half the price! I will never use the full potentional of a Power Shower as it's going to be sitting in a bath and not a proper cubicle. Either this or a power shower would flood a bathroom on max!

I think you are missing the point TPP, you said that you were looking for a Power Shower at post#2.

This is not a power shower, it is an electric shower, totally different.;-)

I am well aware this is an electric shower.

I was looking at a Power Shower as I found one relatively cheap, and was just a few quid more expensive than most electrics and for the extra power a few quid and the extra benefits had me leaning towards a power shower.

As this is a fair bit cheaper I am prepared to sacrifice the power and extra benefits. It is for a bath anyway I will not be able to use the full setting for pumping out water on either the power/electric because it'll end up everywhere!

Am I speaking english now? Or do you lot not understand :?

To be honest if I had the choice of a Power shower or Electric, I'd go with a power shower. The extra power and lower electric usage are both big plus's!

But as the previous house owner has only plumbed in a cold water feed, I have little choice :-(

Thanks for the heat and rep tho guys!

This electric shower may well be slightly cheaper to buy than a power shower, however the installation certainly will not be.

This needs heavy load cable.;-)

i have just had a 9.5kw shower fitted on a 6mm cable. I had advice from 2 Electricians both said that the shower only actually reaches the full 9.5 if on the highest heat setting which no one ever uses, Cost me £50 to get installed

Which is totally in breach of regulations, so just keep your fingers crossed that it never causes a fire, or your home insurance will be invalid.

These have to be wired through an RCD which alone costs around £50. If it is not then if anything goes wrong you will be poached.

No, the electrician will be at fault he has fitted the shower not me.
Are you an electrician?
We have had a recently fitted fuse box that will cut the power if anthing goes wrong .... Hopefully :)

I'm not flaming, just advising, but the reason 10mm2 is prefferred is because when the shower is on and its trying to cram all that juice down 6mm2, the wires will get warmer than 10mm2 as there's greater resistance. The fuse box won't cut it out, because it doesn't see a problem, as long as the electrics flowing down the wire it doesn't care.

If they've just clipped it to your wall from the fuse box to the shower, then thats better as the cable won't get as warm than if it was inbedded in a insulated wall (as per the triton shower instructions, a 6mm2 cable clipped to the wall can take up to 46a).

I wouldn't worry though, as you've pointed out the shower won't be drawing max current all the time, but never think of going above 9.5kw :thumbsup:

Oh, and if the electrician was part P registered, make sure to get a certificate off him so that if anything does go wrong, you've got something to fall back on.

If he wasn't, he shouldn't have been fitting it in the first place.

The electrician should have issued a certificate anyway.

10mm2 is the only cable suitable for a 9.5 shower.

This information is easily available on the web if you are in any doubt.;-)

Although I don't normally comment, just read along and laugh to myself, I thought I'd throw in my two pennies worth this time.

Strictly speaking, clipped direct or grouped, the cable size is largely dependant on the length of the run.

Large house with extra long runs and you'd end up over sizing the cable to compensate, so don't ever take it as red.

No one should install to a bathroom or kitchen without being Part P qualified, but there will be a number of people out there who do.

If your going to get it done, get it done right.

Oh and yes, I am a qualified electrician.....
#19
well both electricians I had look at the job were qualified the first one fitted us a new fuse box recently but he could not do the job as quick as i wanted it and the second one that did the job is also qualifed, I know him from a previous job i did so i'm not worried:0)

having snorted at the power shower to 9.5kW shower comments earlier, I came home lanight to find my little eleccy shower has given up the ghost. That'll teach me to point and laugh! And I might be in the market for a cheap elec shower until I can get someone in to fit me a proper jobba! So voted hot! :)
