Best replacement found
"Bought to replace ailing Triton Rapide R2
, bit of a struggle as diferrent Water & Electric input points and a different profile so wall chopping and re-tiling also needed. However Shower works fine at excellent value for the £50 asking price!

Cheap and Efficient
"Needed a quick replacement as boiler stopped heating the hot water during renovations and instead of replacing straight away and risk breaking again, we bought this as a stop gap to see us until boiler moved and fixed.
Constant temperature once heated up and quick response to any change to temp adjustments made while showering.
Easy to install, took me hour max to do the plumbing (including removing old mixer). and electrition another hour (max.)."

Good value
"Brought the 8.5kW to fit existing wiring and replace a previous 8kW version. Flow on this is much much better than the one it replaced. Controls are smooth and positive.
Fitted it easily without an issue, and first person to use has only used economy mode but reported even that flow was acceptable.
A non nonsense value for money unit. Cannot comment on lifespan yet but ours is only for occasional use in shower room at work."

Not very powerful
"Ok for a cheapy but your better off getting the more powerful ones as the only way to get this one warm enough is to have it running very slow so not much in the way of water pressure. Wish I had gone for the higher kw one."

very good value - so far
"I purchased this shower only about a month ago, therefore I cannot yet comment on its long term performance.
That said, so far, it has certainly proved to be an excellent buy. Straight forward to fit, with only a small amount of extra pipe work required to extend my existing feed to the showers inlet.
I've never before fitted a shower but had this one up and running within about an hour and a half.
If pushed on the subject, I would say the only drawback would be the lack of adjustment on the shower head, although that's easy enough to replace if needed.
All in all, very good.

Good, whilst it worked.
"I bought this shower unit about three and a half years ago to replace a decade old Triton shower which had failed. Alas, this time around it has only lasted until now and it seems like part of the heating tank has packed up as even at maximum hot setting, it barely warms the water. The cost of replacement parts make it not worth repairing. When it was working, it gave good levels of hot water and was relatively sensitive to changes in settings. The 'eco' mode is a bit of a waste of time in all but the hottest summer weather as it barely heats the water even when sent to maximum. The unit can be quite sensitive to pressure level changes from the mains water.
I plan to replace this unit with another Triton Cara as the unit shape is the same and they're relatively inexpensive. Hopefully the next one will last longer!"

A quick replacement
"Excellent product and very good value for money. It does what it says on the box!
Our old Triton shower failed a few hours before the new owners were due to moved into our house, I purchased this unit and had it up and running within an hour and a half from bringing it home. My most awkward problem was changing the mounting screw positions! Well done Triton, well thought out!

Ideal replacement
"We bought this as a replacement for a Triton model no longer made. We didn't want to get involved with new plumbing and wiring and after a phone call to Triton technical department they assured us this model would fit straight onto the existing connections. It did and was a quick easy solution to an urgent problem.
Excellent service from Triton and easy purchase with online " Reserve and Collect" from B+Q.
Apparently this is a model they only distribute through B+Q and it replaces many of the old models."

Not Bad for the Price
"Does exactly what you want it to do and easy to install. I would recommend this model with this shower head even though being a fixed one is fine for purpose. Gentle water rather than painful sharp gush of spray which I have experienced with other designs. Not Bad."

Just the job !
"I used this to replace a 22 year old Triton 80 shower unit. As advertised , it was an ideal replacement unit an had plenty of options for pipe and cable connections, which made it easy to install.
The performance is good with a good flow and heat to spare. All in all a good buy and i'm very pleased with it.
