10.5kw for £54.50 is pretty good as well.

Edited by: "Treboeth" 30th Nov 2013

recently bought the 9.5Kw one for £60 from Screwfix as a replacement for an old Mx Shower we had. They're not a very good shower really ! takes time to heat up, and not very powerful ! So not sure how good a 7.5kw one would be ?
Be careful with the 10.5kw as I believe (?) you need to upgrade the wiring to suit this - is what my plumber said? (unless already installed obv !)

Thanks op

Yes had to get sparky to upgrade the box for 10.5, but glad we upgraded

These are ok as a cheap replacement shower if your skint . But won't last more than 18 months

Why won't it last longer than 18 months? My experience with Triton showers is that they're pretty reliable & it's got a 2 year guarantee Granted at 7.5 KW it's a little under powered but if that's what you need as a replacement a good deal.

it'll be a good shower in summer but go for something more powerful for all year round use

Avoid it! Not good takes time to heat

Can you tell me how much it cost to get the sparky to do this please? As we had a 10.5kW shower installed but the wiring wasn't. So it always cuts out at the fuse box after using it for a few minutes on the powerful setting..

from memory, a larger shower needs a additional RCD in line with its power, as well as a MCB installed in your consumer unit.

have a look at the triton website, theres loads of info and videos on there.

What's the difference between a 10.5kw and 7.5kw shower? Is it how powerful it will be? Or just how hot the water will come out?

Iam a qualified sparky and yes this must be protected by a 30ma rcd and usually any shower upto and including 8.5kw is ok with a 6mm cable - but you MUST seek advice as all installations vary and without seeing the length of cable run and other factors like loft insulation and is it chased in to wall etc . That is only a guide. But without really looking I will always say any shower that is 9kw or above must be wired with a 10mm cable and then protected with a 40amp mcb. Also works in a bathroom fall under part p of building regs and must be done by a qualified part p sparky who will register the work as part p notifyable.

Think of the power rating of a shower like the engine size of a car . this will be like a 1.0 litre petrol engine and a 10.5kw will be like a 2 litre petrol engine and a 9kw will be like a 1.6 litre - I fitted loads of showers and the company I work for do a lot of social housing work and we fit what the tell us a triton 8.5kw - ok it gets hot and it works but I wouldnt have it in my house. One of the best showers is a mira sport max its 10.8kw and its very expensive. If your on a tight budget triton 10.5kw is the way to go if you can. BUT CHECK THE CABLE SIZE IT WILL NEED TO BE 10MM!

Thanks. Yeah we had a 10.5K cheap shower installed by someone we know and he said it would be fine. But he didn't upgrade the electric wiring or anything so the shower cuts out and powers off after a few minutes use on the powerful setting and trips the switch in the fuse box I'm not sure how much it will be to get sorted. Can't really afford expensive re-wiring.

for your summer house only...

got 8.5 kw same for 43 pounds on amazon deal now selling for 44.50 so did not really get it for half price good price if you need it do not need to upgrade cable upto 8.5 above that need 10mm costs a fortune to buy try ebay for cable and local electrician rated people.

You will most likely just need to install a different circuit breaker . Most likely your using a 32amp breaker just upgrade this to a 40amp and this should fix that problem.

But what about the wiring? Shouldn't this be upgraded to 10mm?

As kevin said theres lots of different factors to take into consideration to see what size of cable you will need, but how far is your shower from your consumer unit ?

I have used Triton showers since 1988 after buying a house with one in. Just installed my second and upgraded from 7.5kw to 8.5kw.Electrics and plumbing inputs remained the same but fitted 30ma RCD and a 40 amp fuse box. As others have said, size of cable (6mm or 10mm) required depends on length needed, whether it goes through insulated walls etc. If in doubt seek advice. 7.5kw is okay but higher wattage can provide more heat and hence greater water flow through the shower head. Mind you a 7.5kw has done our family okay for years.

I haven't got any shower at moment ,I'd really love to buy this but can anybody please let me no what installing it would entail ,

Basically you need to supply a cable from your RCD to where the shower is, and also water from the mains to the same place.

Getting the water is usually a simple job of getting water from one of the pipes in your loft, but the electricity is a pain in the ass depending on where your RCD is.

What a load of tosh! We have this exact model and it's almost 2 years old and still going strong.

Admittedly it's not the most powerful shower going, but it serves it's purpose just fine, and was the maximum power we could use in conjunction with ours 1970's wiring.

As for heating up, I'd say that the shower takes 15-20 seconds maximum, and yes, as with most electric showers it will struggle a little more in winter when cold water temperature is lower to begin with.

I'm tempted to order a spare at this price - I thought that we got a good deal at around £50.

Spot on - just bought it. Was looking to get this earlier in the year when price was £70. Great price.

Coming up now at £69.99 - time to expire

Pity, would have bought one, but missed this post

Dont just upgrade the 32 amp breaker to a 40 amp breaker if its wired in 6mm. The cable will melt before the breaker will trip.
