Super shower
20 Mar 2015
By Kiminator
, Southampton
" I tried to buy this from one of the mainstream DIY stores but didn't want to wait a day so I ordered online and picked up 30 mintues later from my local Screwfix. It was bought to replace an old Triton shower and I fitted the shower myself, it was super quick and easy.
The shower is fantasic 5 different shower patterns and powerful (combi boiler). Very good value for value considering there are many different showers out there at much higher prices.

" Bought this to replace another Triton shower. Used web site to check diagram of internals to be a direct replacement. Fitting took 30 minutes and worked a treat. Nice and easy to use dials. Shower head has a variety of different spray patterns. Modern looks and good value. "

Decent 8.5Kw shower
23 Oct 2014
By Anonymous
, Leeds
" A decent 8.5Kw shower. Was very easy to install and does exactly what you would expect it to. The start/stop button is useful, as it means you don't have to find the right temperature every time you use it.
It's not a top end model but for the price it's very good value. "

Triton Excite
22 Sep 2014
By philatelic
, Sutton Coldfield
" Previously owned Triton 100e and was very pleased but when it finally needed replacing went for this as considerably cheaper with virtually same features, Triton brand name (always loyal unless unhappy) and available at short notice. Very easy to install and so far seems better than one we were replacing so happy. "

" 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. "

Not very good quality

" 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. "

" 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
, Cambridge
" 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.
