SOURCE: mira cold feed only power shower

Hi davecross,

I'm Harvey, the Master Plumber.

Your question is:
water pressure not great would a external pump help. Depends on your situation. If you live in a house with a well pump then turn up the pressure. If you have city water and the pressure is lacking then either install a house pump after the meter or if it is just the shower you're worried about then a booster pump on the shower line is the ticket. Be aware that useing the booster may reduce the pressure at the other faucets in the house while it's being used. The house pump will not exhibit this. You will likely need a local pro to help you with installation. Feel free contact me again!

Thank you, Harvey, your Master Plumber

SOURCE: Shower goes hot and cold

If you are having trouble only at the one fixture (shower), and no where else, the problem is most likely in the shower valve...which either needs new cartridges, or a complete replacement.
hope this helps

SOURCE: shower goes cold after 5 mins

Sounds like you have got some elements out in the unit or you need to turn the heat up.

SOURCE: does not stay hot long goes cold after 5 mins in my mira shower

This sounds like the elements or you just may need to turn the heat up. If it under two years old call the manu on the warranty. They make a good product so they should help you. I would check the heat setting first, though I doubt it is going to be the prob.

My mira sport shower when switched on runs afew seconds and stops, then when switched off runs afew seconds then goes off. pls can someone advise. thank you


detach the hose from the shower head and clean the filter screen and do the same with the shower head. When you have the shower head detached turn the water on to the shower and see if anything comes out into a towel or bucket.

Mira thermostatic shower water dripping from bottom of casing


Switch off the power supply to the shower at the consumer unit, it will probably have its own individual circuit breaker as it is such a heavy user of power. Try now to switch the shower, it should be dead and that is good. Remove the control knobs and remove the front of the shower unit. Check the electrics with an electrical screw driver to make sure that there is nothing that will cause electrocution. Trace the source of the leak, the most likely place is the compression joint to the mains water pipe. Tighten the compression nut until the dripping stops. Dry everything off with a paper towel and check there is no sign of further leaking. Reassemble the front with the knobs and switch the power back on.

Every time we use the shower there is a very pugnent smell [fishy] all drains been checked, all pluming been checked, all water is fine. shower is 11 years old could this be the problem. the shower we have...


Also check the following things:

The control unit, hose and shower head - depending on the type, some heads will hold water. Remove them and check to see if they are exhibiting signs of mold or possible failure. At 11 years old, the element could be on its way out. If your Mira unit has an auxiliary pump, it should be checked as well. If it's the shower head, you can try to soak it in white vinegar to remove the smell, or simply replace it. If you have well water, you should consider flushing the system to be sure water isn't being trapped somewhere. Also, if the iron content of the water is high, or if your water softener isn't operating properly, that could be an issue as well. The Mira control unit may need to be de-scaled or otherwise checked.

Check the shower stall walls (with no tub) at the bottom where they meet the basin, unless the shower enclosure is all one piece. There could be mold behind the intersection of the walls and base.

Look for any trace of mold growth around any other enclosure components.

If the shower is in a tub, remove the overflow cover on the tub and see if there is any trace of mildew or mold in that area. Follow your nose.

Finally, check for any excessive build up of soap scum, although this is less likely because you'd notice it more readily.

Things like this can be tough to diagnose, so just take things slow and one at a time.
