Triton Telsa Bar Shower Valve Replacing Bristan Orta


Postby greengrass » Mon Nov 14, 2016 5:18 pm

Telsa 2 by Triton replacing a Bristan Orta Two pipes stick out the wall by approx 2.5inches. The idea was to slide back plates over the pipes fit them to the wall then proceed with other fittings and bar valve easy, peasy.

Stopped dead in my tracks
The Triton has different mode of fitting requiring an elbow on the pipes at wall level with femail end facing to take the Triton dogleg fittings. Not good as it means destroying tiles with no match. There is a Bristan mounting kit 10 at Screwfix where I bought the shower bar and wondered if the nuts on the Triton bar would be compatible with the Bristan 10 kit. Or return the Triton for a refund.
Then order Bristan Frenzy cool touch shower valve from B&Q warehouse (not stocked in store).the has the correct fittings.
I knew I'd have bloody trouble giving 'er in doors' the reins of choice, my fault.
Thanks for reading

Sorted the doglegs in Triton pack were for fitting to female bend on pipe flush fit in wall (doglegs give oportunity if centres slightly out.)

The Triton Tesla bracket / Fixing plate in Video found on youtube is for fitting prior to tiling. To faciliate a surface fit where pipe feeds exit wall at right angle (obvious) rear fit exposed use the Swirl wall fitting. If you want demo see Bristan fast fit video. Screwfix sell Swirl wall mounting kit fitting most bar type valves but check befor buying. My mistake not getting them them to open box to check type of fitting.
Thanks to readers even though no solution offered.
