All Triton Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
Granted a different model but Screwfix do a 10.5Kw Triton for under £59
Not too sure about that but worth bearing in mind that in the (albeit unlikely) event that all 6 are turned on at once, it could potentially draw 18,000W or 78 amps.
Would this provide sufficient hot water for cleaning hands ok no a production environment for about 40 staff? Installing one at all the 6 sinks.
Option of both, easiest to Go under with the mount, I use a socket with a trip built in just to be safe.
Thanks for the quick reply! Does the power go under the sink with the pipes or out the back?
They get warm within about 5 secs same heat as the old type on low flow hot getting cooler as you increase the flow of water through the tap :D They are brilliant as a hand cleaning source.
Heat! Nice find
Welcome to the forum @laura.barton I've added some additional model info to the title and a link to the item on B&Q so members can review the specs if needed :)
Ffs, need one and missed this and the Homebase deal!
Always wanted my own Barrett 50 cal
Every man needs one of these. I have the Worx "XL" version and it's unbelievably useful.
They've all gone at that price. You cannot back order.
I don't know what this is but tempted to order one.
One minute you can be enjoying a nice hot shower next it's gone cold.
Probably all sold by now, so the product will not have a page on the website as it will have been taken down. The deal is over 2 weeks old, if it was a half decent deal they would only hang around for a couple of days.
Sorry, we can't find that page at the moment. It's only temporary.
Yeah but you made it seem like it was doing it unintentionally.
It comes down to quality as do most things, a bar mixer is so simple in design all will work it's just how cheap the other parts are ie hose , shower head and on off levers, also with 150mm centres if it does go wrong it's so easy to swap over with a new one at this price a couple of years use would be cheap.
I agree,I wont be attempting anything like that myself,I can paint and that's about it
To be fair, others are just offering a hot deal to the OP. Paying nothing for replacement is the better deal.
Geeze someone asks a simple question, “How much to”.... I give a simple reply of how much our plumber charges and the place fills up with DIY know it alls.
if its electric shower, its not a straight swap and you didnt help with the price as for the radiator - it looks like you dont have a clue as it wont require the system draining down to do a swap just isolate the radiator then drain that
Well looking at the pics for this on the argos site, I hope if you're buying this you have a very good grip in the wet, as the controls have no finger grips.
None in stock
Stock goose chase!
Got delivered today
Mine arrived today ordered Thursday evening also Enrich ..black too
Arrived this morning. Enrich model (not cara) but photo looks the same. Happy days. Ordered within 10 mins of the deal being posted.
Just had call from b and q, claimed there was a glitch on the system and they have no stock so order cancelled....

As I haven't got refund from B&Q until now. Is there any one got the refund? It's more than an hour and they are not picking the phone up?

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.
You and your mates and your neighbours and your work colleagues can check with a multimeter and I can almost guarantee you will all be getting supplied at 240v or 415v if on a 3 phase supply
I'm afraid you are wrong there: all UK households are supplied with 220v-240v harmonised voltage for single phase supplies, that means the power companies can legally provide power within that range of voltages. If course one has to take the lowest voltage (and hence the highest current) because that is what can happen - my calculation was nothing to do with erring on the side of caution.
You speaketh perfect sense apart from the 220v, in the UK most households will almost definitely be supplied @ 240v which is less than 40A for a 9.5kw. That said, always best to err on the side of caution.
Messaged the seller 3 times since last month
Received mine. You got in touch with them?
Never got mine. Anyone else?
Don't risk buying fakes from 3rd party sellers - get the original for £7.25 instead!!
I paid £2.25, anyone else?
Yeah the price seems to vary quite a bit online. I'm still pretty sure I picked this up about £100 cheaper than anywhere else. It's a nice looking shower, but i'm amazed they sell it for over £300!
its £329 at VERY
Great find, but dispatched in 1-2 months
wasn't this like £5 ish on prime day, pretty sure
Oh, I hadn't realised, I'll add that it's prime only at that price.
Think it's a good deal if you have prime! I haven't :( heat for deal
Over a dozen in B&Q Yeovil but not sure where else.
Excellent price if you can get one
Just got one thank you
Is anybody else struggling to checkout on the Wickes website? Just getting repeated 404 errors...
thanks, ill give it a go :)
Seriously? We've had this for a couple of years in our steam shower cabinet. It also has 5 modes and is chrome effect like the one above, but it's only £2.79 including delivery and comes with the hose and wall bracket attachment (if you needed one - we don't) It's been dropped a few times and has not broken and is as good if not better than the original that came with the cabinet. I recently bought another as a standby just in case, but haven't needed it as yet. There's no way on earth I would pay nearly £20 for a shower head that isn't full chrome which neither of these are. No need.
Bought this for just over £10 (shower head only) 3 years ago and it's still working as new. It's well made too and has survived numerous impacts as our little boy used to throw it around during tantrums! Will buy again if ours ever needed replacing.
Ordered thanks not sure if the tube will fit on my tap type shower but it's £13 on its own for that so bought any way.
buy from Aldi or lidl, £5.99 and 3 years warranty!
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!
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).
6mm Cable can take up to 47 amps and is fine for a 8.5kw shower.
Yeah definitely not safe, standard lighting cable normally 1.5mm cores and main supply cable 2.5mm cores. Hope just a joke if not I'd suggest taking it out now.
who knew, indeed
