Great Shower
5 Star Review   By MariaC on B&Q - Jul 31, 2014    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

We saw this shower in store when we were looking for inspiration for our new bathroom. We loved the way it looked and was exactly the style we were looking for. We came home and looked at the reviews and were a little worried by the overall score but once we read the reviews and realised that most of the criticisms were from people who had problems with installation on e their bathrooms were almost complete we decided to take a chance. We had the shower fitted last week and we're absolutely delighted with it. It looks really stylish and as a mixer shower it works really well and the B & Q price is the lowest we were able to find.

2 Star Review   By boltioni on B&Q - Jun 9, 2014    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

Had the same problem as another reviewer, bought this for a new shower installation but it requires some of its fittings to be in before the plasterboard goes up which I didn't discover until I had the plumber round to fit it! I am going to have to return it because my plasterboard and tiles are in already. The valve is nice quality .

Non-standard fitting and rain shower holder leaks
1 Star Review   By ThePinkPanther on B&Q - Aug 21, 2013    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

I bought this to install in a new bathroom. Looked brilliant and seemed to be exactly what I needed. I had nothing but issues from start to finish with this. The inlet pipes are non standard and the B&Q shower install kit does not fit it and unfortunately the one I bought had a leaking issue, namely leaking from the top of the mixer at the point it joins the up pipe for the rain head, and again at the point of the upper join for the rain head. In the end it provided to be so much of an issue I returned it for a refund. This is one product I can not recommend to anyone. Additionally it is being retired by Triton and is no longer showing as a current model on their website.

Reasonably priced great shower
4 Star Review   By peb12 on B&Q - Aug 7, 2013    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

for the price the shower looks great, I have installed it in a minimal shower and the whole lot looks very modern. I love the big shower head and the way the controls work, there very easy to use. I was surprised how light the smaller shower is but great water pressure, this is only a recent installation but so far so good.

Excellent shower
5 Star Review   By Rhtoffees on B&Q - Jul 30, 2013    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

We bought this to replace a broken shower, fit perfectly to our original pipes so was really easy to fit. Instructions nice and clear and looks great! Excellent price too! Only down point is the shower heads are plastic and not metal.

Triton miss out on replacement market
1 Star Review   By Steve1085 on B&Q - Jul 15, 2013    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

Don't buy this product unless you are plumbing in the shower as part of a new build or refubishing a bathroom or are replacing an existing Triton bar mixer. Shower looked great in the box but I was unable to fit it because it would not fit the standard back plate that was installed with my original shower, which the Triton model was to replace. To fit the Triton shower would have required me to take down part of a wall and re-tile to gain access to the backplate and install a Triton compatible unit. The shower was returned to B & Q, who refunded my money. I purchased an alternative model made by a different manufacturer, from a local dealer. This fitted onto the backplate perfectly. I can't help but think that Triton are missing out on the replacement market because of the incompatibility of their product.

Love this shower!
5 Star Review   By Plaskitt on B&Q - Oct 30, 2012    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

I bought two of these showers - one for the en-suite and one for the bathroom - so felt this was a bit of a gamble if I didn't like them. I felt the price was reasonable. We've had a Plumber fit the showers and he hasn't moaned, so I guess they were easy enough to fit. I must say, I LOVE THIS SHOWER! It is easy to use, the water flow from the overhead showerhead is fantastic. I think it looks great - I agree that the handheld showerhead feels a bit light but once it's got gallons of water zooming through it, you don't notice its light weight. I really am very satisfied and would definitely recommend this shower.

Great looking Shower Head
4 Star Review   By samisonline on B&Q - Feb 11, 2012    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

Brought this mainly due to the large shower head that my wife was looking for. Looks wonderful once it was attached, enhances the Deluvio & Black Damask tiles we had in our shower. Gives a real modern feel the shower enclosure. Easy to install. Large pivotal head makes it useful when in use. Gives out a great area of water coverage when standing underneath it, making the showering experience more enjoyable & quicker! Definitely recommend this for a wow factor style. Only drawback is the feel of the smaller shower head feels plastic, due to the lightweight nature of the head. But does not look plastic! Probably the best looking out of the range of shower heads that we could see.

5 Star Review   By TGJP on B&Q - Jan 5, 2011    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

Have now had my bathroom rebuild for six months, started and completed by a builder. The shower enclosure is fine, but I must congratulate Triton on an excellent shower mixer(thermostatic). Works better than expected, it reacts instantly to temperature change. We have never been scalded or frozen.

Poor construction - avoid
1 Star Review   By ajb3878 on B&Q - Oct 17, 2010    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

I bought this not entirely inexpensive shower and had it fitted by a qualified plumber as part of a plumbing refit; everything went smoothly with the exception of the fact that the diverter valve on the shower leaks like a sieve! It appears to be completely impossible to tighten or service and requires a special tool to remove, unlike most other Triton showers which require a simple wrench. The two shower heads are extremely light and entirely plastic, which doesn't exactly add to the feeling of quality. In all - avoid.

A wonderful looking shower; definitely adds a modern touch to any bathroom. It may take sometime getting used to, however, thumbs up from me! It is reasonably priced as compared to similar showers that I have seen, and I would recommend it to a friend.
