Go to dolphin showers website and book a qualified electrician . Do not take chances with amateur electricians from the local paper , or play pin the tail on the donkey with the internet companies who are hundreds of miles away from you . Go to www.dolphin-showers.co.uk and book your approved dolphin repairer.

SOURCE: Water coming from around the bottom of

Piece of P: youre prob right and its the pressure relief device, which is a silicone rubber ball that gets blown out of a branch of the exit pipe just behind where the hose screws on. If you are careful you can push it back with a small (non sharp) screwdriver etc, looking up from underneath. It would be easier to see if you unscrew the hose first.
Good luck!

Mira mixer cannot balance temp.either scalding hot or freezing cold


I suspect you have gravity fed hot water system and the mixer cannot balance the high pressure of the cold mains against the low pressure of the hot water.
Either install a shower pump. Means installing electrical connections and quite a bit of plumbing
Or a mechanical pressure reduction valve on the cold input pipe to the shower

I installed a new Delta shower valve. When I turn the handle to mix the warm and hot water it vibrates like a jack hammer. Is the water presure to high or is the valve bad.


It is due to the water pressure. You may need to install
a pressure relief valve at your main cold water line, so
you can set the water pressure and prevent your valve from vibrating, that is it it is annoying you,.Otherwise,
just let it be..

Turned on a triton trance electric shower it was working ok then it stopped coming out of the shower head and coming out of the overflow pipe at the bottom of the shower unit


The overflow pipe is a pressure relief device which is a small rubber ball that get's ejected when the water pressure inside the shower is too high. You will need to get a spare part to replace this. These generally operate because the showerhose is in poor condition and has collapsed internally, or the showerhead has become clogged up so check these things first.
Good luck.

Water heater is building pressure in the boiler


Hi, W/D here.

The pressure should be relieved by your PRD (pressure relief device) located on the side of your water heater near the top. It's main purpose is to prevent a water heater explosion.

An inoperable PRD is not a job I'd put off for even one second. If I couldn't work the job right now, at the very lease I'd get the heat off of it, and vent the pressure off at a faucet.

What's important to remember about these devices is that they are for pressure and thermal relief. If there is any doubt that either function is compromised, it should be replaced. Isolate the heat source to the water heater (electricity or gas), vent the hot water at a bathtub, isolate the water inlet connection Drain the heater, taking an air bleed (vent) at one of your hot water faucets. You don't have to drain it completely, just make sure that the water level is below the PRD and that the boiler is isolated and vented as described.

In some cases, minor plumbing modifications are required to get the PRD discharge to the outside or the pan.

If you have any doubts about your ability to perform this job safely, you should call a plumber.

Work carefully and safely. --W/D--
