Default One of those weeks/Triton Shower

So, my mum has a new shower fitted because the heater has failed in the
old one, Mr Super efficient handyman service disposes of the old one for
her.

Four days later my shower stops dead, claiming low pressure. No flow,
cold or hot so obviously the solenoid valve isn't working, quick check
with the multimeter, open circuit coil, exactly the same coil as the one
that's been disposed of.

Anyone know where I can buy just the coil for a Triton shower inlet
valve?

I just put a quarter-turn valve on the inlet and turned the solenoid valve
in to a bit of bigger pipe.

I'm wondering if the valve is the same or similar enough to the complete
washing machine one to make it a future fix, I can buy the complete
valve for around 7 quid.
