If you click on the link it tells you they are in Sunday 26th.

I would rather spend a few more quid and get a decent shower with gurantee and one you can get spare parts for. neutral vote

Whilst £50 is a great price for a 9.5kw shower, you can get a top make shower from Screwfix for less than £70 here:
screwfix.com/pro…5kw
This makes this less of a deal as it is an unknown brand (granted - it's a 3 year warranty compared to 2 with Triton) but if you're spending money upgrading cables etc to accommodate a 9.5kw, surely you'd be better spending another 20 quid on a branded shower with spares readily available?
Just my oppinion!! No doubt some Aldi supporter will shoot me down!

triton isnt a top make your thinking of Mira

and dont Aldi come with a 3 yeard G/tee - I alway find Aldi things very good quality

I know that , its for the benifit of the people scanning the titles

i think this shower is a Galaxy shower

galaxy-showers.com/hom…htm

which is fully available in the UK

therefore parts shouldn't be a problem

alert electrical have them for sale (usually pretty good on price)

alertelectrical.com/Ele…rs/

the cheapest 9.5KW shower on alert is Galaxy Aqua 3000 (AQ395WC) which is available for £82.22 (inc. VAT)

it could be this one?

Certainly looks it. :-)

My father in law has been trying to get his Aldi shower sorted out for the past year and a half under warrantee.

The store doesn't want to know, the people who the guarantee is with don't want to know and I ended up giving him the one I bought for myself as a replacement so they could have showers again.

Shocking service.

Remember and keep the box then.

Save your money and put it towards a decent pumped power shower. Or if you must go electric go for a Mira.

If this is a galaxy shower then there will be no problem with the guarantee - you will get dealt with by galaxy themselves and they are pretty good.

This is a good deal folks.

BTW - My last Mira Sport shower laster 2 and a half years - wont buy one of their overpriced units again

m. The fitting and replacement of cokkers and electric showers is not notifiable unless a new circuit is needed

I bought this shower from Aldi just over a year ago, after a plumber friend told me about it, he said it was a great shower at a great price. It has been a fabulous shower. I think I paid around £50 for it. It is Galaxy, and I would recommend.

Are these easy to fit for the DIY novice?

They look like the cheaper Galaxy range and in that sense are a good unit. I have been retailing showers for years and rate them at least as good as the Mira, who used to be good 8+ yrs ago but not any more. Galaxy 10.5kw retails around 130 so a good deal but suspect galaxy will not want to know you so dealing with the lovely aldi

Aldi and medion CS is Absolutely rubbish, i would not touch mosts stuff with a barge pole

Please show me a better guarantee than 3 years and what "spare parts" do you need?
I tend to buy something that I expect to last.
If you have so little confidence in an item that you source spare parts first, do you really think you should be buying it?

Are these easy to fit for the DIY novice?



They are if you have a bit of plumbing and electrical knowledge, (as well as usual skills in routing very thick cables under floors asnd throguh walls!) but whether it is legal is another matter as it will almost certainly be covered by Part P of the Building Regulations
For one thing, the protective devices need to be right, the cable size is very important, and the connection needs to be done by someone with the right qualifications.
There is loads of info on the Internet:
eg. diydata.com/plu…php

If you don't have a suitable spare connection at the Distribution board (fusebox) you might need extra installing, and this too may well be beyond most DIY skills, and might be relatively expensive!

BeerGoggles;5857868

Are these easy to fit for the DIY novice?



Electric showers and ovens require their own circuit directly connected into your fuse box. Sorry to be alarmist but you can get the most serious type of electrocution from these devices. Only use a qualified electrician to do the wiring.

I just got one thanks to the OP - I just hope I don't die fitting it.

your solicitor would have requested the document or checked with the council.

seriously, fitting a shower is in no way a job for an amateur. If it goes wrong and ends up burning your house down, then no insurance comapny would ever pay up

just found this:-

Regulations now insist that all domestic DIY electrical work is checked by a qualified electrician and a minor works certificate issued. Failure to do this could render your house insurance invalid and make selling your home very difficult.

Oh wait it was just into the wall the wire bit was already there.

I have broke these rules also:

Installation of a socket in a garden shed
Installation of extra low voltage lighting (not CE market sets) (not sure what that means really but if its low voltage under kitchen cupboards then I have)
Installation or fitting a storage heater, including final circuit - I just put one in where the old one was

Ther pipes and wires are all in for the shower just need to get an uprated PCB? Is that still illegal?

Are these not effectively just complete plug-in items though - which require no permanent fixing to the existing circuits, and are in effect just 1) a glorified extension lead or 2) a plug type low voltage transformer and lamp

If you're just replacing one then no big deal, but if you're installing the circuit and wiring then that's a no-no.

need to check the cable as old shower might have only been 7.5kw so 9.5kw could burn out the existing cable to start a fire.

I have checked the guage and the lenght of the cable and it is the right size and guage.
