Triton Electric Shower Temperature too hot

I've had my electric shower for about 8 years and it has worked perfectly. Lately the temperature is far too hot to nearly scalding temperature. We have to turn it right down in order to have a comfortable heat but then the water pressure is far less. There are two dials on the unit. The first has two levels, which is 1 red bar and 2 red bars. The second dial is numbered 1 to 10 (1 being cold 10 being v, hot). We have always had the shower on 2 red bars at between 5-6 for a comfortably hot shower. It now is scalding hot on 2 red bars from 1-10. We now have to have it on 1 red bar at number 8-9 which is far too cool and less pressure. We cannot get a comfortable temperature that is not too hot, not too cold that we used to have it before.

We have had the bathroom redecorated recently and the builders should not have touched the shower but they did update the circuit board.

Any ideas?

You could have mineral deposits on the temperature probe inside of the unit. If you remove the heater and purchase a bottle of lime and scale remover (lime away) to put inside of it. Let the unit sit full of water and chemicals for 24 hours. Flush out the unit to remove any residue. You may see the water is brown if you have a lot of buildup. Reconnect unit and test your settings. If this doesn't work, install a anti-scalding device, available at a plumbing supply store.

It sounds like the numbers are for the temperature indication and the higher the temperature the more slowly the water runs because it takes longer to heat it.

Triton T90si electric shower temperature stuck on hot.


It sounds as though the valve is not closing and opening properly. I would have a proffesional come out to have a look. I could also be the control board not working correctly or a combination of both.

Shower temperature too hot


Shower valves that have anti-scald features are renowned for this problem. Usually it is caused by not being used regularly. It can be repaired usually without replacing the valve, but you will have to dissemble it, clean, and use some plumbers grease to reassemble it. It should work fine after this. If it still does not work you will need to replace the cartridge.
