This answer was rated:

I have a Triton Opal shower, approx 10 years old. When I press the button for hot water, it goes to the 'low pressure' and water runs cold. If I press the cold button, sometimes it goes to the hot button, and sometimes it goes straight to 'low pressure'.
Two questions:- do I need a replacement? What is the kw of this shower?
Many thanks.

Plumberpro : Hi . Yes I would replace if it this age . It depends on the size of your electric cable as to the power of the replacement. Also check the fuse rating of the mcb in your fuse board. If it is 40A then this will allow a 9.5 kW . If it is a 45 A mcb then this will allow a 10.5 kW. .
Plumberpro : Cable should be 10mm if you require this power
