Our Creda 53557581 10.5kW Review
The first step to enjoying this shower is to install it, and if you’re replacing an existing unit, this will be a lot easier. The issue is getting all of the pipes to line up appropriately, and if you’re installing your first electric model, it may be easier to hire a plumber to do all of the piping work for you.
Installation is 30 minutes or so if replacing with a water inlet that matched the Creda shower. A 15 mm cold water main is used for the hookup.
Once installed, you’ll find that this is the best shower you’ve ever owned – it’s that good. First, the showerhead that is included is a multi-mode model, so you can change the way the water flows out of the showerhead for a massage, harder pressure and so on.
An on/off button allows the shower to be turned on and off without fiddling with temperature settings (find the perfect setting and leave it).
There are three power selections, too:
- High power
What’s neat is that there is a phased shutdown process that flushes hot water through the unit, which is ideal if you have hard water.
Temperature is controlled through a dial that offers seven temperature controls. The adjustable rail kit allows the showerhead to be placed at the perfect height for you.
- Comes with a multi-mode showerhead
- Remembers previous temperature settings
- Flushes for hard water areas
- Comes with a 3-year warranty
- High setting is too hot
When turned on the highest setting, the water can reach scalding hot levels, which isn’t ideal. Low settings also cause water pressure to suffer slightly. These are both minor concerns, and it’s easy to use one of the other temperature settings to find the right temperature for you.
Longer shower life is offered from the flush system, which reduces scale, and a great flow rate allows for little water pressure loss.
