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

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.

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.
