Do you even have a shower ????

9.5kw it fine in most houses - seems a good price for one - heat

Since the highest you can have is 10.5 kW, I have had both (previous shower was 10.5kW and I can say you do not notice the extra kW at all.

Also, it all depends upon the flow rate of the shower; I've found the Galaxy showers have good flow rate and temperature control. Even when you turn the heat up in the winter you still get a good shower from 9.5kW rated shower.

Thanks OP I have been looking for a good cheap shower.

what ? a friend of loughborough.....

Luke warm in winter with some flow rate or hot and virtually no flow. Summer is never a problem as you don't tend to want a hot shower when it's hot outside so you get good flow. 10.8 kW is the highest I've seen, for domestic installations at least. Still can't beat a combi or a power shower with hot water tank.

galaxy showers are pretty reliable they have a good heat exchanger on em too

Are you all fitting them yourselves or getting qualified people to come and do it? Surely a shower has to be professionally installed?

My 8.5kW shower is fine. As long as you have good qwater pressure then you would be fine with an 8.5 so 9.5 would be good in any house.

The shower does not look like any Galaxy shower

It looks exactly like a Creda Florida Plus

quite correct, there will be muppets who buy this and install themselves and then wonder why their 6mm cable frys itself to bits and sets their house on fire. DO NOT INSTALL UNLESS USING 10MM CABLE!

Three year warranty is good at this price.
We bought a Mira shower that broke down after 13 months! And guess how long that warranty ran for??

Why do you need 10mm cable when 6mm or less is used in the shower unit itself?

Riget, I would not recommend installing this product at all on a 6mm T&E(as a qualified spark) definitely requires a 10mm T+E,like the guy said above it would most likely lead to a fried cable depending on the fuse size.

As for the Luke warm comment clearly this guy is trying to wind everyone up,you cant go wrong with this product at this price at all (except electricity costs maybe) Voted Hot

sold out already !!!!
anyways i've been using one for past 2 years and it does it's job perfectly. try and ignore the negative comments as some people like t b odd. go aead and buy them if u r lucky enough to find one.
PLEASE HAVE IT INSTALLED BY A PROFESSIONAL.

Doesn't the length of the cable between the shower and consumer unit make a difference, there is a voltage drop over distance, also if the wiring has ventilation around it for whatever reason, rather than being embedded within plaster this can affect the temperature of the wire. But you can't go wrong with 10mm though!

I got one last time and it is really powerful. I even fitted it myself and I struggle at putting a plug on. Really powerful even during the coldest days of last winter. People on the other deal last time said it would be a trickle but my mate who has a newly fitted power shower could not believe the performance of this.

Don't accept a 12 month warranty fob off story. The sale of goods act deems something has to be of "Reasonable quality", I would Insist on a refund from the retailer or Sue them, you will probably win. A shower should last more than 13 months, most do (you will claim it is of poor quality and did not have good durability) and the retailer knows it, I don't think you will lose.

Cable length doesn't really come into play with internal wiring.

In January 2005, Part P of the Building Regulations came into force in the UK. These regulations are to introduce safety standards to electrical installations within domestic properties.
This basically means that, with few exceptions, any electrical work undertaken in your home such as a new electrical circuit or any work in your kitchen, bathroom or garden must be notified to your Local council Authority Building Control for inspection.
By using a contractor who is registered as part p with a government approved body the contractor will be able to self-certify that the work meets the required regulations and that it has been notified to your local authority.
If an approved contractor is not used for the installation your home insurance could be invalid in the event of a fire caused by incorrectly installed equipment.
Cable sizes

Cable comes in different sizes and is classified by the area of the cross-section of the cores and can range from 1mm2 to 10mm2. The size of the cable you require depends on the current supplied by the circuit. Below is a list of common cable sizes and what they are used for. If you are not sure what size of cable you need, seek advice from a professional electrician.

Two-core-and-earth

1mm Lighting circuits
2.5mm Storage and immersion heaters plus ring main circuits
4mm Radial circuits with a 30amp fuse
6mm 30amp 12kW cooker circuit or 45amp 8kW max shower circuit
10mm Cooker circuit above 12kW or shower circuit above 8kW

What if you replace a shower unit and use the existing wires that have been there for over 10 years?

Providing those cables are adequately sized you should be ok, but I dont think there were that many 9.5kW showers around 10 years ago, they were mostly 8kw or less so chances are the cables are only 6mm anyway. But you still need to have it installed by a professional to comply with building reg's. and be able to prove it was installed correctly in order to sell your house.

That aside its still a good price.

He's talking about cable width.

Cant see cable length being a problem unless your installing it from your house to your local shop,in a domestic installation a 10mm on a 40A breaker will be spot on(obviously consult a professional on circumstance)
If you cannot be bothered to to have it rewired(you didn't hear this from me lol) from a 6mm to a 10mm just make sure its on a 32A breaker so if their is any problems it will trip(that doesn't mean put it on a cartridge fuse or rewireable) i doubt a 32A breaker will be able to handle this product at full power though

This shower is going to draw +40 amps at full power. There may be instances where 6mm2 might work, but 10mm2 is going to be required for 99% of cases. There are many factors to consider such as cable length, cable grouping and the amount of insulation.

Just working on the basis that an old shower used the cable is no good.

mine is on 6mm on a 32A breaker and had no problems (so far - 2 years later). The cable is about 3 meters.
