Triton opal electric shower overflow pipe

There appears to be a plastic overflow pipe situated directly behind the outlet on my electric shower. Water is continuously pouring out of it. I have tried descaling the heating chamber and a fair bit of lime scale came out of it, but it has made no difference to the water coming out of the overflw pipe. The pressure seams ok also.
Please can you help.

Regards

Rob

Hi rob the problem is due to an activated thermal overheat switch, you cannot reset this unit as once it is activated it will require a new unit, its a nuisance i agree as i come across this regularly, however its condusive of a scaled up unit so you eventually turn up the shower setting higher to get the water hotter, & inturn activates the thermal switch.
According to which model it is the part is not that overly expensive, you can phone triton direct 7 they will post a new spare to you

Kindly

Triton shower faults


If its a trickle occasionally its normal, when you turn off shower the water is still in pipe right up to shower head, it cools down, contracts and backs away from the head, when house gets warmer water expands up to the shower head and trickles out.

The water flow from my triton electric shower does not stop even after unit is switched off


28487001 is not an electronic shower head made by Hansgrohe. It is an overhead shower head that has no electronic parts. Triton is a completely different company. If you have an electronic shower system by Triton you will need to contact Triton. If you have a Hansgrohe product feel free to contact Hansgrohe at 1-800-334-0455.

I have a triton dart shower which is operated by turning a flow control block. This is so hard to turn that I sometimes struggle and my family require my assistance. It is just as difficult to turn off...


I can't offer you a solution but will say that I have the same problem with my Triton Dart. I have put it down to a build up of hard water inside the valve but not sure. Think I'm going to have to contact Triton under their warranty although they do say that they will not cover faults resulting from limescale.Great

My shower works. water also poors out of a tube beneath the unit


Are you talking about water still coming through the spout at the same time? What overflow pipe are you talking about? If you are talking about the spout, there is a device in the spout that when you pull up on it, the water is diverted to the shower. They have washers in them and it sounds as though the washer is worn out and not making a good seal anymore. You can buy a new generic spout to stop the water or you can take the old one apart and try to find replacement pieces. I have taken one apart and bought a new one to rob the parts off of it before. I hope this is the answer you were looking for. If not, reply to this for clarification and I will try and answer your question more clearly.
