General question on electric showers

We have a Triton safeguard we inherited from previous owners. It's OK, but want a bit more oopmh.

I'm pretty sure we have uprated cable for shower as it's thicker.

Are all electic showers much of a muchness unless you go for something like a mira sport for example?

Also how difficult is the change? Would it leave holes in tiles etc?

Can't beat physics, but a decent shower head makes a massive difference.

Make absolutely sure your cables are the correct thickness before upgrading. The fixing holes are likely to be in different places (as may be cable and pipe entry)

Out of interest, the Enrich has exactly the same internal layout as the Triton Amber 3 (Homebase version) if you wanted to swap like for like.

Define a bit more oomph?

If you’re after a better flow rate it might be worth checking the water inlet on the shower itself. We had issues with our Triton towards the end of its life, when we had our bathroom re-done and the shower was removed we noticed that the plastic inlet had a coarse plastic mesh which was blocked up with debris, obviously causing a restriction.

Generally showers these days come in 8.5kW, 9.5kW and 10.5kW versions. The higher the power rating, the higher the flow rate at the same temperature.
You must make 100% sure that the cable you have is correctly size for the rating of shower as the higher powered versions require minimum 10mm2 cable. Anything less could easily result the cable getting very hot and you end up with a house fire.
We had the house rewired 2 years ago, and the shower is on a separate circuit. I was up in the loft and shower cable is about 3 times the width of the other cables up there.

Regardless I would get a competent person in to fit

If you stick to a triton say 10.8kw or 9.5kw assuming you have a 8.5 kw it'll be quite easy , make sure you have decent water pressure as electric showers are mains water pressure .. I'm pretty sure YouTube will have a how to change an electric shower video. you might need to upgrade you fuse/rcd in your mains box but not always. Cable size 8.5kw 6mm twin and earth , 9.5 kw and 10.8 kw 10mm twin and earth cable.hope this helps .Anything else google it..
Bought this a couple of days ago and fitted it, same inlet pipe and electrics position as my old shower and up and running in no time.
