Pros: works well great heat output reasonable price
Cons: boxing flimsy
the shower looks good and works well but the mouldings for pipe entry are flimsy and the screw fixing are very hard to line up if not on a dead flat wall we had ripple tiles
Pros: Easy fitting, multi point access in rear case, easy operation of controls, clean and light not a heavy item but has the power and economy far greater than the old units
Cons: my only qualm was the rear fitting of the existing cables i had to just drill a 20mm hole and use a grommet for their input, however it is covered by the front section, i sealed the hole after with silicone and it is all working as it should.
This was a direct replacement for a old Dolphin shower unit and it was spot on, it hid all the old holes in the tiles the water feed was just in the right location and no extra plumbing needed the cables however fitted ok after a slight modification to the inner housing, just a 20,, hole and grommet, over all a great unit with ease of operation for the elderly person it was fitted for
Shower arrived quickly and within the specified time period. Plumber fitted the shower easily within 30 minutes replacing an existing shower. Shower works well with good pressure. Good value for money.
Pros: Pretty easy to fit.
Cons: Can't use the rail to replace an existing installation without filling (or re-tiling!).
I bought this to replace an old T80Si so I already new it was a good, reliable shower.
It's a simple job to fit with a variety of entry holes for pipework and wiring but I did need to re-plumb a little as the inlet connection now has a 90 degree elbow. I also had to drill new fixing holes as they are now in new locations but as it is larger than the T80Si this did not create any problems. In all, about an hour to remove and replace the existing shower. I was fortunate enough to already have a 10 amp supply in place.
Unfortunately I could not use the new rail for the shower head as the fixings are completely different and it would have left me with 6 holes in my tiles to fill.
Since fitting it has performed perfectly as you would expect.
Pros: Attractive. , Easy to use. , Fairly easy to fit. , Good replacement for the Triton Opal 2 unit once you sort the cable rerouting and entry point!
Cons: Could do with top entry and connections for power cable (minor point). , Doesn't have a cool down period before shut off like the Opal 2 had which may have prevented extremely hot water hitting the next user if used straight after., Top fixing hole difficult to access without magnetic screwdriver.
Bought the Triton T80Z Fast Fit 10.5kW Electric Shower to replace an older and now discontinued Opal 2 10Kw unit. The footprint is similar to the Opal2 so the original two holes were covered so no need for filling, just two new holes to drill. Plumbing in was easy, using existing pipework and a new copper olive in the joint. Wiring was a bit trickier as it came in from a side boxing next to the Opal 2 unit and entered into the top of the original unit, so had to reroute it down and in through the bottom of the new one. Fortunately I could pull enough cable through the box section that it came in from so this may be something to be aware of when replacing a unit rather than a new installation. Once installed and professionally tested, works a treat, easy to use, and satisfied it was a suitable choice and replacement.
