Triton Tesla Thermostatic Mixer Shower Flexible Exposed Chrome
Great Replacement Shower
This Triton unit was bought to replace an expensive period style shower thermostatic mixer unit that was installed ten years ago, and which in that time required some form of work three times, with the third time seeing the cost of repair almost as much as the original unit itself. Therefore I decided to replace it with this Triton shower as most of the other taps and WCs in the house made by the other manufacturer are also in various stages of breakdown - thats three bathrooms/WCs worth!
Therefore, other reviews of this Triton unit were important, as was the five year guarantee from a company that I have known for years. In addition, the inclusion of dog leg pipe fittings was important factor in deciding to buy as the "period" unit being replaced did not have 150mm inlet pipe centres.
The fitting instructions were clear and easy to follow, and apart from one error on my part, everything worked first time - including, importantly with plumbing, no leaking joints when the unit was switched on!
Separate fitting instructions for the shower unit and the shower head pole was an interesting and useful feature by Triton. It meant that as a non-plumber the whole installation process was split into "bite sized" modules.
Using the shower again is wonderful and even though the Tesla model is towards the budget end of the Triton range this unit is better than than the shower it replaced: The flow and temperature controls work well and the spray head provides a flow that covers the user well and allows entry to the cubicle without water wetting the bathroom floor when entering.
In summary: The clarity and separation of the installation manuals, the inclusion of adaptors for "non-standard" existing pipework, the simplicity of preparing the unit for fitting followed by the actual installation and it's operation once in place mean that this Triton shower unit is one purchase felt to be extremely worth while, and, one I'm glad I made.
