  1. Triton guy came today .. nice fella who quickly removed the front cover to change for a brand new one ... Only to find the 'diddy' bit was not actually part of the front cover .. he believes it's part of the temperature valve .. so the Triton office have booked a new appointment for Friday .. but .. they don't know if it will be AM or PM .. Talk about planning your life around a shower (Pun intended)..!!
  2. I looked on eBay.. Amazon and eMailed 'normal' sellers with no joy .. This part is tiny maybe less than a sewing thimble..[ATTACH=CONFIG]45123[/ATTACH]
  3. Just an update to Tritons response ... I posted a 'customers review' on two Webb sites .. one for a supplier .. one on Tritons own .. both where quickly deleted .. So I posted another on Tritons Webb site mentioning the previous post was deleted .. within 30 minutes i had a long email from 'customers relations' explaining the relevant costs of manufacturing ..transport ..storage .. admin. etc: -etc:- I replied within minutes with an attached picture of the thimble sized worn plastic part .. asking how they could justify an £109 price for a small bit of plastic and added my my phone number.. Within minutes my phone rang .. it was a Triton guy who said they took customer 'feed back' seriously and went on about the diddy sized part being part of the temp. valve and should not be messed with by any one but Triton .. I referred him to the insulation / spares manual and said the 'diddy bit' was only a link between the temp. control lever on the front panel and the temp. valve and it was a 50p bit of plastic that I had expected to pay £5 for delivered in a diddy Jiffy bag with a first class stamp on ..!! After some discussion and about there offer of £98 to come and fit the diddy bit he said that 'diddy bit' was actually part of the front cover which he could let me have for £29 plus P&P when i said that that was still a 'rip off' price when I only wanted the 'diddy bit' .. he said that the part cannot be supplied separately .. but as sign of 'goodwill' he would arrange to have get an engineer out .. the shower fixed and serviced .. with a 12 months guarantee, for £49 .. which I (reluctantly) excepted .. I mentioned this saga to the electrician who initially found the problem and was going to fit the new part .. his reaction .. make sure they fit .. all .. the new cover .. if they just try to fit the 'diddy bit' politely ask why .. ?? ... when according to Triton .. that part is not available separately ..!!
  4. That sounds a bit to high tech for me ..!!
  5. I am fuming .. Three years ago I had a Triton Safeguard t100 care shower fitted into my disabled sons wet room .. With the recent hot weather he came to turn the temperature handle, and it did not work .. I got an electrician to remove the front cover and check why ... a very small ( about as big as a five pence) plastic splined 'D' shaped plastic part had split .. he said contact Triton .. get the part and he will fit it.. So .. I have just phoned Triton .. "Oh sorry we cannot supply that part .. you will have to buy the complete valve for ........................ £109 ..!! ... or, you can book an engineer who will come out and fix the shower for £98 ...!! To me this diddy plastic part is a separate 'consumer' part .. it is not part of .. or physically fitted to the control lever .. or the valve .. Just a typical greedy supplier who think they have us consumers 'over a barrel'
