Shower either runs cold or extremely hot

Mixer shower has been working fine for 2 years, has suddenly developed a problem with the thermostatic control - Now will only run cold or very, very hot!
I believe there's the thermostatic control is installed in the pipework and can be accessed quite easily, am wondering if it could be that it is scaled up. Just don't want to invalidate warranty by opening to access the control if it's unlikely to be easily fixed by de-scaling.
Shower should be under 5 year warranty, but was fitted by a contractor who must have the actual receipt for it and I have been unable to contact - Triton have said they must have the receipt before they will replace/repair it.
Would be very grateful if anyone's had similar experience, or knows what the fault is likely to be, and could let me know.

    Thanks Richie - Am in the UK & have finally got a response from Triton - they are hopefully coming to take a look - still bitching about us not actually having a receipt, but say they should be able to determine the age of the shower and will accept that as still being under warranty!

Hi ya, if its a triton shower valve & only 2 years old it should have a 5 year guarantee, ring Triton & arrange a service call.
it sounds as though the filters could be blocked & more than likely the thermostat requires replacing as its more than likely scaled up?

You never mentioned where your based UK or abroad?

Kindly

Richie

Wont go off


-You're talking about water not car right...?
-Shut off main water line and remove the on/off valve, if lose or broken
screw that hold the washer or broken washer. Possibly fixable or just replace new one.
Then turn the main water back on again. You should be good to go.

Power outage how do i reset a moen digital thermostatic shower valve


If you're talking about the ioDigital Vertical Spa controller, mine never comes back up after a power failure (status LED off) until after I've unplugged and re-plugged the DATA cable. To do this you have to take the cover off the controller in the wall cavity by removing the four phillips #2 screws to expose the DATA connector inside. Then it's just like unplugging and replugging a telephone or ethernet cable.

My Kadio Digital clock which runs on dry cells becomes slow by 1 minute every 2 days? Any way to fix?


I am having the same problem. My clock is running slow too.

I did purchase few years back another chinese clock. It was running fast.

So I guess, it is one of those trade/hallmark of "Made in China". Cheap price and cheap quality.

So viewers I would suggest dont waste your money in chinese products.

How to clean REALLY REALLY BAD military bathroom grout


I salute those who serve our country and provide me the freedoms that allow me to learn at my own free will. For that reason, I hope this can help you and all who read this answer. Thanks Again.

I just learned about this in November 2014. Its called the Cleaning Paste. It was part of sales presentation that presented products for cleaning my home and business.

See the photo, I simply used the cleaning paste and a Rubbermaid brush! Scrubbed it on, then used the EnviroCloth to wipe it off.

Didn't have to let it sit for hours or dry and because it was in the kitchen, I had to be able to get it done quickly.

If you like my pictured results, this is the website I purchased it from.
www.ChristineFrey.Norwex.biz

Along with the Cleaning Paste; I currently own and use the EnviroCloth and just water for cleaning windows, counter tops, shower doors, the microwave, and every other stainless appliance I own. So far, every product I tried has performed above my expectations and I have had customers tell me, that "I'm Persnickety"!

Simply put, the quality and results are impressive. clean-really-really-bad-military-2a0cfbtak4y3luwyen1qnfe3-5-0.jpg
