A pal asked me to look at his shower which is leaking badly. It's a
Gainsborough Energy 2000X - about 5 years old. And leaking it certainly
was. Pretty certain it is coming from the flow control.
A quick Google shows I can get the part - at about 40 quid. But you can
buy complete new ones for about double that.
So the question is:-
This one is on tiles and obviously to minimise the work I'd like one
which has the water and mains inlets in the same position - or as near as
possible. And one of at least the same physical size in case any of the
tiles are cracked etc behind. The existing water inlet is bottom right -
power top right.
My recommendation is to fit a new unit complete - unless it would look
unsightly in which case I'd try a repair.
I've also found an unused one on Ebay - But of course that wouldn't have
If we do decide on a new one, any particular make to go for?
