I had the same problem. I replaced the hose twice. Original hose lasted few years where the replacement hose lasted few months. I think it's something with the pressure, from the controller or in the shower head handle - too much back pressure. I replaced the handle yesterday.

Do you need plumbers tape where the handheld shower connects to the hose?


No tape is needed. As a matter of fact, taping the threads will make it harder for the swivel nuts on either end of your hose to tighten down and seal on the black washers that are supposed to be inside those nuts. It's exactly the same as a garden hose connection. No tape required.

Water leak behind shower wall when i turn on hot and cold water


If it only happens when you turn the water to the shower on, it must be a problem with the piping after the valve. Take the shower arm out and wrap it with Teflon, it could be as simple as leaking threads. It could also be a leaking/poorly soldered copper fitting, or even a defect in the enclosure itself.

I understand that the white vac breaker end should be connected to the valve not the hand shower. FYI a little leak from this connection when the water is switched off is normal.

Water pressure to main hose has ceased, with water now pouring out of a small outlet pipe at bottom of unit next to fixing for main hose.


Sounds like your outlet at the top has clogged with grit/dirt. Turn the shower off, remover the entire shower head hose from its base (where it screws into the wall or pipe. Turn water back on. If you get a steady flow (as you should) the problem is isolated to the shower head/hose. Detach the shower head from the hose and clean the screen inside, attach hose back on first, try water again, if this flows then your blockage is in the head itself. After removing and cleaning the screen inside the shower head, reattach and run water, this should fix your problem, if not, you may need a new shower head. If the water will not flow to the outlet pipe alone, either your shower switch is broken or you have a serious plumbing problem.

Grohe shower assembly leaking


hiit sounds as though the diverter valve is sticking in the mid position although you have turned it to the floor spout as you call it!!
Also it sounds as though the seals are possibly leaking causing the plasterboard (drywall) to get we, or possibly a joint may be leaking. Advice access the pip-work valve etc run shower & check with torch (flashlight) to see where its coming from?
Rectification work replace seals/repair leak...replace diverter valve assembly.
