Just installed this shower on a combi, no problems at all what you get with Swirl as always a great product at cheap prices... Also this shower can handle up to 8 bar when many other can only manage 6.....

Dont buy it
I bought this shower to replace an old traditional mixer shower and wish I hadn't .
Due to the extra length of the shower pipe, I had to replace the wall tiles in the shower.
The shower head provided a trickle of water, the only solution I have been told is to purchase a shower pump at around Â£150. Then there will be the additional expense of a plumber and electrician, which is not good as the shower alone was so expensive.

Not for a retro fit. Too tall for the cubicle
Cannot cut the riser because of end fittings.
It leaked as soon as I fitted it, so all in all RUBBISH

will never buy swirl again
I bought this shower to replace an old traditional mixer shower and wish I hadn't . Be aware that you cannot cut the connection tube because it has rediculous brass fittings inside and is not 15mm.or any other size which a compression joint can be used on. I therefore had to reposition the pipes and remove tiles from the wall. These brass fittings also reduce the flow of water to the shower head. Screw fix claim 6.3ltrs/min at 0.1 bar. You will only get a trickle from the head with this unit . All in all a really badly designed bit of kit. I now have to purchase a pump in order to try and get a reasonable shower, which defeats the object of buying it, ie. low pressure capability. During my time I have installed over 10 showers and can say this is the worst for performance and ease of instillation
