Rated 1 out of 5 VERY POOR PRODUCT
I am about to go back to Screwfix for the fifth (yes 5th) time to get a replacement. Every one of the previous 4 switches have been MK but the 5th won't be. After about a week the led light would only work if you pulled the cord 3 times and as time progresses the pull mechanism becomes so stiff you can nearly swing on it before it clicks on. Also 3 of the 4 have burnt out internally, my shower is a new 10 kilowatt Triton with all new wiring and my electrician said it can only be down to being a poorly made switch. Can't believe a MK product can be so bad, my father in law will be turning in his grave, he was an old school sparky and would only fit MK.

I replaced the shower switch about a year ago with a cheaper alternative product which has since failed. The MK switch was more substantial and has a satisfying 'firmness' to the switch.
I am not an electrician but did not find it difficult to wire in the earth despite there only being one terminal - once all wires were cut to the appropriate length this was not a difficult task.
This switch has only been installed for a week but there have been no 'teething' issues and I hope that it will be a lot more than a year before I need to replace it.

As a professional electrician, I need my customers to feel confident that I am installing good quality gear. Unfortunately, in the last couple of years I have had a few of these switches fail (even new ones straight out of the packet), which makes me look bad.
Used to love MK, but the quality seems to to have deteriorated lately which is a shame.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by wesley Good shower switch
This switch is a good quality product that is smooth to operate when assembled correctly. The previous switch was difficult to operate and eventually failed. If the switch is sticky in operation take it back as it is faulty.
