Good value, reliable product

"We found the instructions relatively easy to follow for the installation, the power and quality of water flow very good, nothing exceptional but performed better than its price.
Recommended to anyone looking for a good value quality shower."

"Bought this as a replacement for a customer. They had a Trance model. This does what the trance does but is 20 quid cheaper. Easy to install."

Not very good quality
4 Jun 2014

"Not very impressed with the build quality a few more mm on the inlet would make life easier, short hose, cheap and nasty shower head riser, I don't think it will give the service the previous one gave but time will tell."

Do not buy

"Must admit very easy to fit but this shower gives a very poor performance, if u aren't stood directly under the spray you don't get wet. Also a very short flexi pipe and with the poor water flow you can't rinse all the bath afterwards"

Not for hard water!
7 Oct 2011
By CM49

"This is a reasonably priced shower with adequate power, but unreliable with hard water.
It needs to be understood that this unit is not suitable for hard water. It was fitted as a replacement for a 12 year old Triton T80 that performed superbly. This shower however is a different matter. The handset has tiny holes that scale up very quickly so that the back pressure blows the Pressure Relief Valve. Triton say the handset needs descaling weekly. I say this it totally unacceptable, and the shower should be supplied with a handset suitable for hard water. Triton decline to comment as to why the 12 year old model coped with the same hard water but this new model failed repeatedly because the handset scaled up so fast.
It is unreasonable to have to descale a handset so frequently. It you have one of these showers with the fine holed handset, change the handset to a rub clean type to avoid costly PRV replacements. If you are thinking of getting this model and have hard water, buy a different one.
Triton really should know better.
