SOURCE: Our Aqualisa power shower lacks water pressure power

more than likely you have some debris near the shower head

take an adjustible wrench( crescent or channel lock
wrap a rag around the eustaceon( chrome tube coming out of shower wall srap around tube to protect the chrome hold it firmly with vicegrips or channel locks, take adjustible wrench or chanel locks and remove the chrome nut holding the shower head on to the eustaceon(turn counter cockwise be careful not to drop the tools that wil damage the tile or fiberglass

after removing showerhead

turn on shower to force and debris out and place shwoer head into stream of water to clean out any deposits the head may have some type of screen to strain the water

this should work if the flow has not incresed then there is a need to adjust the flow valve at the control

to reinstall the shower head reverse procedure

if you have any teflon tape wrap it around the threaded portion of the eustaceon

good luck

hoe this works

SOURCE: Just moved house today, have a sirrus shower 1600- cold water

There is something caught in the hot side of the faucet manifold (main faucet body). You have to remove the trim and guts to access it. Use a flash light and look inside. Hopefully you can find the object. Oh by the way, you need to turn the water off to the whole house to do this. If you don't see anything have someone turn on the water slowly with the valve out of the manifold to rinse out the pipe leading to the valve body. Hopefully it will remove whats in there. If what you see is a white looking material that is stiff but brittle, then it's from the water heater and the water heater needs to be replaced. Sometimes there can be small stones that get "washed" into the lines when the main is worked on within the area of your home. But most likey it's from the water heater. Good luck! Don't forget to turn the water off before you remove the faucet guts.

SOURCE: mixer shower connected to combi boiler running hot and cold

Mixing valves usually have a diaphragm inside that keeps the hot and cold separate. If the diaphragm is old it may be allowing the hot and cold to mix improperly at the back of the valve. This is similar to a cross connection (a hot water line tied into a cold line) in your plumbing. Cross connections interfere with the performance of Combination Boilers and Tankless Water heaters due to their having no water storage or a very small buffer tank. The brand of the valve will help as each one is different in their mechanical design. If this is the problem you or a licensed plumber can replace the cartridge in the valve. Refer to your valve's owner's manual for part numbers.

Water doesnt get hot unless you run the sink first then the wster on shower get boiling hot then ice cold showers a few weeks old


So you have 2 heating elements in your hot water heater. A top and a bottom. From the sounds of it your top element has went bad however they are only about $17 a piece new and it is recommended you replace both at the same time. Thats why it takes you long run to get hot water the top water heater water is still cold and long run gets to the bottom and gives you hot water.

Moen single handled shower the hot water turns cooler then cold after a minute


Your whole house is likely plumbed wrong so that it is impossible to have equal pressures of both hot and cold at your shower. If you had your home plumbed with aquapex using a radiator for the hot water and a radiator for the cold water and have the radiators fed with a 1 inch line you can have close to perfect pressures.

Mira mixer cannot balance temp.either scalding hot or freezing cold


I suspect you have gravity fed hot water system and the mixer cannot balance the high pressure of the cold mains against the low pressure of the hot water.
Either install a shower pump. Means installing electrical connections and quite a bit of plumbing
Or a mechanical pressure reduction valve on the cold input pipe to the shower

Can't get cold water


the balancing spool sounds like it is frozen. You need to replace the cartridge. The spool needs to move freely to regulate the water coming through it to keep from scalding a person.
