The units are made by redring and they kinda suck they frequently leak from the o ring in the internal filter and when a small ammount of limescale get in the gap around the power button it constantly gets stuck. The only grohe components are the hose and the shower head. I have two of them which i bought after seeing a which? Product review - I regret my decision.

Not bad for the price at £73. But definatly not worth a premium price over any other brands.
I believe you require 10mm cable for this. I still have 6mm so can't install anything over 8.5KW
Hot for sure!
Grohe is a top brand - though they presumably contracted out the manufacture of this, albeit to their spec

Quite a steal of a price.

You don't understand.
uk voltages are 230 +10% or -6% so within 216.2volts - 253volts . Under normal conditions I have seen 257 volts which was reported to local DNO and lowest I have seen is 223 volts .

but when there's a phase down to a transformer I have seen it as low as 166v which drives electrical stuff mad.

9.5 kW draws 43A at 220v, which is more than the current carrying capacity …9.5 kW draws 43A at 220v, which is more than the current carrying capacity of 6mm^2 cable in an insulated wall (34A), so 10mm^2 cable is certainly required in this case. A 32A MCB probably will not trip until well over its rated value - but this is a bad thing, not a good thing - the cables are still getting too hot (the design operating temperature for most is 70C, so 6mm^2 will be running hotter than this - if people realised they had a piece of copper wire at over 100C inside their plaster walls they might not be so blasé).The cable needs to be changed to 10mm^2 with a B40 MCB, and it must be RCD protected. Changing the cable is notifiable work and needs to be done under Part P by an electrician.I suspect someone will say that none of this is necessary: any old bit of cable that has been there since 1965 will do, there is no need for an electrician to fit and test it, the existing Bakelite CU with no back and cartridge fuses is adequate and that RCDs are for wimps (someone always says those things on these pages), but they are wrong.

Well said "othen". You can't just say 6mm cable can take 47 amps and is fine for an 8.5 kW shower. There are more factors to take into account such as where and how the cable is routed to the shower unit. Seek advice before you burn your house down or kill yourself! There is also no way this would work on a lighting circuit and I'm sure it was a joke!
Kenwoods001

6mm Cable can take up to 47 amps and is fine for a 8.5kw shower.


The current carrying capacity of 6mm^2 is 39A (see Table 4F1A), which means a B32 MCB, which would not be sufficient for a 8.5kW appliance (37A) - that is the regulation, but saying that would a 6mm cable and a 32A MCB work? Almost certainly, but the main factors would probably be a. Voltage drop (lower potential difference at the shower means higher current in the wire, and hence a bigger heating effect) b. Thermal insulation (the figures in the book are for direct clipped cable in air - if it is running through 10m of insulation the situation will be very different).

I'd rather that electric showers were not available to the public at all because they look so easy to fit or change, and most DiYers have no idea about voltage drop/current carrying capacity/over current protection/fault protection - and as a consequence I see a shocker (sorry for the pun) every now and then. The biggest danger is where someone fits a more powerful (particularly 10.5 kW - drawing 46A, or more if there is significant voltage drop) to replace a 7kW appliance connected to a 6mm^2 cable (I've even seen 4mm^2 cable). Sometimes the MCB has been changed for a larger one because it kept tripping (for what reason I wonder?) without the DiYer realising the cable then had no over current protection. I know it always says on the packet that the shower should be fitted by an electrician, and that new installations are notifiable, but that does not stop people doing the above to save a hundred pounds or so (and risking a fire).

Any idea on a reasonable cost for switching out one shower for another from a labour perspective? Happy with DIY to a degree, but messing with water AND electricity seems out of my comfort zone.



This model is exactly the same as an Opal 2 model - they've just tarted up the front case and shower head a bit. Really quite simple to switch if you know how to isolate the power and the water. If you don't (or if you're feeling particularly lazy, you could just swap out the control board (with the solenoid) from your old Opal with the one in this. Nothing more than a few screws and crimped spade connectors.

If you're in any way uncertain about any of this and particularly isolating the power then get a spark in.:)

Or you can have the same amount coming out at a higher temperature. However (as some others have said) the important thing is that if the cabling is not sufficiently thick then a significant amount to heat will be wasted in the cable, heating it! By significant I mean that in particular the ends connecting to the shower unit itself may melt causing a short circuit. At the ends, the copper connections expand and contract heating and cooling eventually causing sparking and more damage to the cable.I've seen this.

You also need to factor in that the water temp in winter means more KW are required.

A 10.5KW shower need 10mm cabling. You'll get away with standard 6mm on the lower rated versions, but running a 10.5kW shower through 6mm cabling is asking for trouble. While it's unlikely to immediately trip or fail, the cabling will run warmer than it should... at best reducing the lifespan of the cable, at worst causing a fire. Just don't do it.

Your partly correct. The cold water entering the unit is heated by a … Your partly correct. The cold water entering the unit is heated by a filament which is controller by your thermostat ( the knob which controls temp)The higher the kW the hotter the filament can get. Therefore heating water to a hotter temp faster. Now using a little physics the higher the kW the hotter the filament therefore more water can be heated in the same time as a lower kW. Therefore if your supply is good enough your pressure should increase as unit with a higher kW is able to heat the water to the correct temp faster than a lower kW. Again if ur supply is not good enough there is not enough flow to cover the filament, the filament will get too hot and cut out or blow.

Seems like a decent deal, although have had issues with our triton shower with the guy who came to replace the unit the first time we had issues with it claiming that he's experiences a lot of issues with triton showers. Currently we're having the bathroom entirely redone due to the opportunity of it not working the 2nd time with a new shower along with everything else. Ignoring the issues, it felt like a decent shower.
