Thanks in advance for any replies.
I've just bought a Mira Sprint electric shower.
I've had the chance before fitting it to gaze over it and get less than happy over how water's not going to get inside and amongst the wiring.
Granted, the innards look largely well protected from all but a pressure washer attack from below, and I can appreciate why the design wouldn't be a hermetic seal, just in case it did fail and the unit filled with water.
However, there is one thing..... the unit's otherwise impervious rear panel has a 1-2 cm dia hole, through which you can see part of the flow valve, and which as space around it, exposing the unit's interior.
It's obvious that water directed here would easily get inside,
It's also obvious that this area would never have water directly on it, but regardless, what's to stop condensation running down between the wall and shower rear panel? Water would be in contact with the rear and if it tracked across that hole, then water would get in. Whether it would touch wiring I do not know. Hopefully not. if the water kept running down the rear only, then out through a drain, not that I saw one. I know the gap between the wall and the rear is small but I still can't see how water would not go down there, water always finds a way
I know there must be thousands of these showers in use and probably few incidents if any, but still unnerving.
Wish I hadn't looked so closely now.
Anyone else with same concerns or am I just paranoid?
