That sounds like a water heater problem, wheres the heater at in your home. If it is effected by the outside weather i.e. the heater is in a cold environment then it would effect the hot water output. try turning up the thermostat on the heater if it is gas then it should be knob on the outside if it is electric you will need to remove the top or the bottom cover and adjust it with a screw driver. If this does not work the let me know and we try some other things. With the weather/temp outside effecting the water temp in the shower then I have a hard time believing it is the shower its self.

Is it a mains fed shower


The installation must be in accordance with
Water Regulations/Bylaws.
To ensure activation of the heating elements, the
shower must be connected to a mains water
supply with a minimum running pressure of
100kPa (1.0 bar) at a minimum flow rate of eight
litres per minute (nine litres per minute for the
9.5kW rated model).
For all units the maximum static pressure must
be no greater than 1000kPa (10 bar)
.
If in any doubt, the pressure should be checked.

Grohe shower mixer, water always warm, never hot, even when turning temp up ?


There is a hot temp limiter that comes from the factory set too low, often. typically you remove the handle and there is a limiting ring located under it that needs adjusting. This is a very common issue on most brands, deals with lawsuits.

Triton t80si shower is very hot even on a low setting then fluctuates between hot & cold, pressure switch is not activating but pressure seems low any advise will be gratefully received.


If the water temp is fluctuating from very hot and cool the problem could lie with a blockage in the inlet to the shower, scale inside the heater can, shower hose needs replacing or the shower head needs to be cleaned The problem is a "slowing" of the water across the heating elements which causes the water to pick up too much heat

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.

Shower pressure.


Hi chicken69

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

You want to know why the presssure on your triton t80i shower has dropped by half?

It is very possible that some debrie has come up in the water and is partially clogging the shower. For this you would have to turn the water off and dissassemble the parts clearing all the small passages, a bit of wire or paper clip works. Perhaps for a pro? If you like you may choose to utilize our Repair Directory.
