Because T80's are not guaranteed to work in all places. Outside dublin and galway they are very very poor oh and just in case you say they should not be selling them its on the instructions to check the pressure
Additionally if you decide to get an attic conversion you can only get one of 2 showers and one is a T80
The Gainnsborough was an 8.5kw and 9.5kw but the majority of showers sold were 8.5kw. I know because i imported them
To be honest If in doubt get an expert to fit it because 8.5kw of power and water are not a good combination if fitted wrong.
