"bought this for my shower which was becoming a nuisance with constantly tripping as there was no rcd in my original fuse box .so seen this on my fav shopping store SCREWFIX this was so easy to install that i had it installed in half an hour now no more tripping and rcd protected now .so no more having to reset my fuse box WELL DONE SCREWFIX and the price WOW never ever seen cheaper A PLUS so take my word for this item SUPERB."
"Bought this to install for a customer who was on a very tight budget having just paid a plumber to install a shower but unable to do the electrics. He had no spare ways in his existing consumer unit so this was ideal. Really easy to fit and connect up. Can't give top marks for performance and reliability as only just installed. Don't see why it shouldn't be ok though....
"Bought one to do a job for a returning customer. I got the last one in ststock at my local branch, and was disappointed to find the busbar and blanking plate were missing. Fortunately had a blanking plate and bus bar in my kit, so no drama. Spoke to staff at branch, who confirmed busbar and blanking plate should have been included."
"Just read review by "parttimespark" dated 18 Mar 14, with great respect, I find it hard to think that I have just fitted the same unit.
It is the same design as other BG units I have fitted, in fact the enclosure is identical to the BG Garage Unit. It has plenty of room for 25mm tails, 10mm earth and a 10mm T/E feed. The rcd and mcb are identical to those in other BG units I've fitted.
To sum up; if you already satisfied with BG kit, I found no reason to feel otherwise about this product."
"I bought this unit to replace an existing older unit and was very happy with its construction ,cost but the RCD failed to operate properly so I had to return it to Screwfix who were very good in helping me as they did not have another shower unit but did have a spare RCD. One other thing to point out the single RCD was a different build quality from the RCD in the shower unit. This has not put me off from buying this item and I will use it again"
"Transparent cover actually hinges upwards and slightly obscures screws to top half of box. Plenty of room but only one round knockout in base/ top - illustration wrong. Plastic a bit light for armoured/concentric cable."
"I fit BG consumer units, and I fit BG garage consumer units which are pretty much the same thing as this shower unit, but this is the 1st one of these i have fitted and was shocked a how poor the build quality was. bad points: the RCD and MCB look completely different to the rest of the BG stuff i use, it's only recogniseable from the name stamped on it, and they look cheaper. the screws in the earth and neutral bars are soft, had badly formed heads and some so tight i could not get them in all the way , not even far enough to get hold of a 10mm cable, so i had to use other ways, good job i only had one circuit to connect into this board! and this was using the correct tools, a plus minus driver, and even a big slotted screwdriver but the heads were not properly formed so it just slipped right out as soon as they got tight. rcd tested very slow, 39 seconds on x5. thats borderline fail. I fit dozens of the consumer units and garage boards and have encountered very few issues with those, so why are these so different? good points are the board is a good size, nice and easy to get 25mm tails into and 10mm T&E for the circuit. I think next time i;ll just buy the garage units and a seperate RCD big enought for a shower then I know what i'm getting"
