FAQ

Shower won’t turn on

It may be a faulty solenoid valve. If you have a multimeter you can test it- you should have a reading of at least k3.5 ohms across the terminals while in its failed state. Any less then you need a new valve.

If there is power getting to the solenoid and it is not operating then there is a good chance you have a faulty solenoid.

Lukewarm water

It may be a faulty element in the heating tank. There are two or three depending no the rating of the shower.

You can test it with a multimeter. You should have a reading of between 12 and 18 ohms.

If you have power to the elements and no heat it's likely the elements. If there's no power to the elements then it's probably a micro switch.

Shower going hot and cold

First check that the main valve coming into your house is fully open. Then check all the valves on the line to the shower is fully open. If there isn't enough water to cool the shower properly the safety device will turn off the power until it cools and starts to heat again- this cycle will keep repeating until corrected.

Make sure that the shower head is clean and that the hose isn't kinked. Check the hose thoroughly- it may look okay externally but could have collapsed internally.

The other possibility is a faulty flow/stabilizer valve not allowing the correct amount of water into the shower.

A rough check is to remove the shower head, turn the temperature control to fully hot. Take a note of the water flow. Then turn the water to fully cold. If there isn't a big difference between the two then you could have a faulty flow valve.

Water leaking out of the pressure relief device

The pressure relief device (PRD) is a safety device usually found on the bottom or side of heating tank or outlet pipe. Although it's fairly easy to replace there's usually something that causes it to blow.

Often it is a kink in the hose or a blocked shower head so check these before fitting a new PRD.
