Hudson Thermostatic Problem

Hope you can help.

I've had this shower for about a year and it has never worked porperly. The water does not get hot, i have adjusted the shower via the calibration process, to the fully left and the water not getting hotter. The hot pipe feeding the shower is very hot to the touch.

I have also thought the rubber washer, maybe the problem, but i have replace them with the service kit and this made no difference

PLEASE HELP MY OTHER HALF JUST ABOUT READY TO SLAP ME!!

Try this.
if you have anti scald device installed in the valve, take it out. the anti-scald device is to keep the hot water from pouring out in case the cold water pipe is not functioning. In general sense, it is a good idea, however, it also mixes too much of cold water, therefore you don't get eough hot water.

There is no hot water


Hi Marshall,

Do you mean that no hot water is reaching the shower, or do you mean that no hot water is coming out of the shower. The answer to this will determine where the problem is.

If no hot water is reaching your shower, then there is probably a problem with the boiler or the pipe is blocked. You can easily test this. You can turn on other faucets in the bathroom to check whether any hot water is reaching those.

If the problem isn't with the boiler and the shower is in fact receiving hot water, then the problem will be with the shower mixer valve, specifically the thermostatic cartridge. The cartridge controls water temperature. The inner workings of the cartridge move up and down to adjust the amount of hot and cold water entering the cartridge. If it has seized up, the moving part can get stuck in a certain position. It sounds like this could be the case with you and therefore replacing the cartridge should in theory fix the problem.

Hope this helps. Shower Thermostatic Cartridge Spares

Hi,

If the hot and cold are fitted the wrong way round then the thermostat on the shower unit cannot operate properly!

Most thermostatic mixer showers have a 'bi-metallic' thermostat, if you supply the hot to the cold and vice versa IT WILL NOT WORK.

It is like wearing the left shoe on the right foot and the right on the left! It doesn't work.

Re-install the hot and cold to the correct supply, and this will sort it.

I hope this helps.
