Having already spent a stupid amount on buying and installing the shower my father's decided that it's going back instead of having the manufacturer send an engineer out (potentially more money).
As the unit has already been used (couldn't really tell otherwise) what's the likelihood of this particular electrical retailer taking the product back or exchanging it for another? Under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 the onus is on the retailer the prove the unit was up to the job at the time of sale? However, it needed to be installed before anyone could know.
Have you got the paperwork with the shower. There's usually a hotline number to ring if you have a problem with a new unit. I've always found them pretty good tbh, tell them the problem and take their advice. You might save yourself a shitload of work removing the shower if it's a problem that they can sort quickly. ( Just a thought, did he flush the pipework before he fitted the shower, a little obstruction in a 15mm pipe can sometimes show up as low pressure, because the flow is restricted)
