    Shower Sounded Like It Blew This Morning...

    So I was halfway through my shower this morning & there was quite a loud bang & a bright flash that came from the unit. The shower stopped immediately.

    Turns out it's only a month over the 12 months warranty. Although according to the Triton website, power showers have a warranty of 1yr & electric showers, 2yrs. I think mine is an electric shower.

    So, my question is...has anyone had any dealings with Triton before? Am I likely to get a replacement or will they fix it? Also not impressed that if I do get a replacement I'm going to have to pay someone to fit it again.

    Cheers

    A man was drinking, obviously way too heavily, in a bar one night.
    The next day he returned to the bar, sat down, & ordered a coffee.
    The bartender snickered & asked, "are you sure you don't want another shot of whisky?"
    Holding his stomach the man replied, "no, please, I drank so much last night that I went home & blew chunks all night long."
    The bartender said, "see what happens when you drink too much, you end up throwing up all night."
    The man replied, "no, you don't understand, chunks is my dog".

    Thanks, I've emailed them but with it being Christmas week I don't expect to hear anything for a bit. It was a local registered company so hopefully that will be ok.

    Just left without a shower now until probably New Year, there are worse things though I guess.

    Thanks for the reply, unlike the first reply it was helpful

    I got the shower from Tesco & the engineer installed it. So do I still take it up with Triton as it wasn't supplied by the person who fitted it?

    AND WHAT DID A PLUMBER SAY?

    I think you'll find if correctly installed you can get a replacement from the retailer or manufacturer as you can REASONABLY EXPECT it to function for at least 5 years (sorry for the caps but that's the vital bit in the SOG act ).

    I've put something similar in the email I sent. Even made a point of saying the last triton shower lasted me at good 8 years. Hopefully they'll sort it.

    it was 6 to 7 years ago, my triton electric shower was dripping, at the time it was still under the 2 years warranty.
    so rang triton up, they arrange an appointment for an enginneer to come over to fix the problem.
    they replaced the solenoid valve in the shower and didn't charge parts or labour.
    really good service i would say.

    My pain tolerance during sex is starting to get better.

    It took years to get used to pepper spray.
