Water Temperature I have a Mira mixer shower & the temperature has started to fluctuate. It is probably the mixer valve at fault but can I fix this myself, do I need any special tools or am I better getting somebody in to do it?

    It is a Mira Excel

  • Anonymous Apr 03, 2009

    I have a mira 415 and it keeps going from comfortably warm to uncomfortably cold on the hottest setting. It is as if the water pressure is too high for the boiler to heat it. I only moved in to the house so don't know if it is the boiler or the shower mixer. If i run the hot taps on full the water does go cold.

Hi,

from what you have described it sounds like a thermostat problem.either scaled up or the filters could be blocked?
You do not mention what model it is?
you will need some specialist tools but you need to identify what model 1st & then we can go from there?

Kindly

Why do I only have hot water in the shower


sounds like either the cold water that feeds the other half got shut off, or the mixer in the valve for controlling the water temperature is broken....most likely the water got shut off. better go to the water source and trace the cold water feed pipe ,looking for a shut off valve....it could also be behind the shower panel, then turn or rotate the valve the other way and go test the water to see if you can adjust the temperature now.....if not, then replace your hardware.......in the mean time, you could turn the temperature down on the water heater so that you won't scald yourself in the shower til you have time to fix it properly.

Fluctuating temperature now got un bearable, ive de scaled shower head totally and cleaned filter !!!!!!!


Test: take the shower head off, then run water. If the water can be adjusted to the desired level (hot/cold mix), then the problem is probably in the shower head. Contact the manufacturer of the shower head. If you cannot maintain a good mix, the problem may be in the valve behind the wall or a total house pressure problem---time to get out your wallet and call a plumber.

Mira Sport shower running luke warm


Your hot water must come from your coil in boiler and not from a seperate hot water heater - more then likely furnace hasn't been on for heating your house nor has it been on for any draw of hot water. You have to wait till it goes on and brings the water temperature up to your setting or get a hot water tank put in or a new type wall mounted gas instant hot water unit.

Installing a Mixer Shower from a Combi Boiler.


hi there, your boiler will perfectly match the mira excel ( a great choice i might add) a 24cdi will give about 9.8 litres a minute flow rate hot water.
The mira excel is suitable for any plumbing set up and there installation instruction are very well laid out & their helpline is fantastic.
The hot water will fluctuate accordingly to the time of year as the cold water temp coming into the property will vary. but the boiler will modulate to compensate.So in brief in the summer you will notice it hotter than you would in the winter, this has nothing to do with the boiler just the incoming temp of the cold water.
