Heat added, i paid around the same for a 9.5kw Triton last week, i just wish Triton didn't have so many different model names for different retailers, very confusing.

this will heat fine in the winter at 8.5 Kw . If it doesnt , then it is faulty .

yes it will heat but the flow will be reduced drastically. Mine was awful on cold winter days so upgraded to an 11KW one and the flow was still pretty poor.

Rubbish.

8.5KW heats water up fine in winter where I am (Scotland).

Do have to turn the dial up a notch or 2 mind you, but flow is only reduced slightly.

Heat, pardon the pun.

I've got a triton, 7.5 kw. Literally never had a problem with flow, be it winter or summer. So I'd guess 8.5kw wouldn't be worse. I'm not easily pleased, but I don't necessarily need a shower that can tear my skin off either. Just getting the shampoo out is generally enough.

The difference between 8.5 & 10.5 kW is like night and day in the winter.
If you can afford a 10.5 kW and more importantly if your electricity supply cable can handle it DO NOT buy a 8.5 kW.
Plus in the summer my Mira 10.5 performs like a power shower.

Brilliant price, just ordered thanks.

Obviously you should go for the 10.5kw if you can but without ripping all the tiles out and doing a rewire to the fuse box its just not an option for me.

Isn't that because it is a power shower?

A 10.5kw power shower ???
No its not a power shower but is capable of almost running at full water mains pressure in the summer so the water blasts out!

Yep - here's one here:

http://www.snhtradecentre.co.uk/plumbing-bathrooms/sp8001zff-triton-t80.html

We have a 9.5kw one at the moment - it has ok pressure on full, but put it on the other setting of 'not so hot' and it's actually cold and low pressure.

Silly question, but what's the difference between the kw's? for example 8.5 and 9.5?

I know it stands for KiloWatts, but which one is better? The higher the number or the lower the number?

9.5kw will get hotter quicker.

8.5kW = 8500watts, 9.5kW = 9500 watts.

Put simply ;
the lower the kW the less electric it will use, hence cheaper to run if you run on maximum setting.

the higher kW shower 'may' need the cabling upgraded so may incur extra costs to install.

as as been highlighted, the higher rated shower sometimes gives better performance in colder weather (due to the water being colder, sometimes a lower rated shower can't heat the water up quick enough to match the flow)

Either should be installed by a qualified electrician.

Yawn!!! You don't know the difference between a normal electric shower and a power shower.
For those that want to know the difference a power shower does not use hardly any electricity and is a much lower wattage as it draws the hot water from your storage tank and does NOT heat the water.
It basically acts like a jet wash pumping already heated water up to a higher pressure and will work of normal houshold cabling.
You also confirmed what I first said about 8.5KW showers being pretty rubbish in you statement "We have a 9.5kw one at the moment - it has ok pressure on full, but put it on the other setting of 'not so hot' and it's actually cold and low pressure"

Better still take a read here http://www.which.co.uk/home-and-garden/home-improvements/reviews-ns/best-electric-and-power-shower-brands/how-to-choose-the-best-shower/#power
