SOURCE: Shaking of the valve D500058BNT Parma Shower, not the pipes

The issue you have is known as water hammer per se. It is the result of water logged air chambers in instances such as yours. The easiest solution is to turn off the water supply to the house and drain the entire system from the lowest point available such as a hose bibb/water spigot. Turn off your electric water heater if applicable as lack of water will burn out the elements. Once this is done turn the water supply back on to the house and bleed the excess air out of each appliance by turning it on and running both hot and cold water until air dissipates. Another cause may be an inadequately secured plumbing system behind the shower itself. The piping should be secured to some cross member to prevent movement caused by water pressure. A special device is made in extreme circumstances and larger systems called a water hammer arrester which does the same job as an air chamber but uses different principles to accomplish the task. I hope this is of assistance to you and thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of further assistance please let me know.

SOURCE: hot and cold water in shower comes out in a triclkle

shut off the water from the main pipe.
use a allen screw driver take the handle off the shower control.
pull of the wall cover.
pull out the pin that stablized the cartridge in the control body. (remember how it is, before you take it out. or take a digital pic of it). pull out the cartridge. and bring it to any home center or plumbing store.
install in reverse.

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: 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.

SOURCE: shower goes boiling hot then freezing

does this happen with any other fixture in your house that almost sounds like an element in a hot water heater.

or remove handle and look for an adjustment dial to temper water and adjust it

My shower only stays hot for a minute and then goes cold even though the hot water works everywhere else. I have a hot and cold tap and a third one to direct to shower or tub.


I would take a look at the stem replacement task. Maybe something is clogging the hot water flow, perhaps a damaged washer or debris

Push Pull Shower Valve also off in middle position


If you turn it to left or right (hot or cold) and get water out of the shower head,we'll elimate cloged shower head.If it just doesnt work in the middle ,probily a washer is stuck in your diverter,or to better understand>a part inside your shower knob assembly is clogging the water that goes up to your shower head. If you get water out of the shower head in the just cold possition or just hot position,then you will have to dissasemble the unit to repair. If you get no water in the cold or hot position could just be a clogged shower head.If you dont know how to disasemble a Shower diverter ,I wouldn't recommend taking it apart. Hope this helped!

Hello, I am putting in a grohe 35016 rough in valve. My shower has cold/hot 1/2" pex line coming in and i need to have one line going up into the ceiling for a rain shower head and another line going...


Hook the cold line up to right side and hot to left. Run line to wall shower off the top and use two 90 degree elbows with a short length of pipe turned slightly to the side of the line to wall shower. Run pipe up to ceiling height then 90 over and down to location you want forrain shower head. Hope I made this clear as I know sometimes I don't explain things well. Thank you.

My Bristan Meridian Show start ok with hot water then after a few minutes the water runs cold. Even if you try and increase the temp it still remains cold. You can switch of the shower and start again...


It sounds like 1 of 2 things to me. I will start wit hot water heater. The first test for the water heater is to have someone run the hot water while you hold the hot and cold pipes and see if the water is coming out of the water heater cold when the shower goes cold. Of the water heater is cold coming out then the problem is in the heater. ether a lower element is bad or the dip tube is broken at the top of the tank. if the hot water heater continues to put out hot water when the shower goes cold then it has to be the mixing valve for the hot and cold mix at the shower and that valve will have to be repaired or replaced. hope this gives you a good start. let me know if I can help further.

Electric shower hot and cold


it sounds like the flow is too low and causing the heat chamber to overheat ( or the heat sensor is faulty and thinks it is too hot) is the water too hot before it goes cold?

MOEN POSI-TEMP GOES FROM HOT TO COOL AFTER 30 SECONDS OR SO


Wow A Mystery Faucet!!! SOUNDS LIKE THE WATER LINES FEEDING THE FAUCET MAY BE SWITCHED. CHECK TO MAKE SURE THE COLD FEED GOES TO THE COLD SIDE AND THE SAME FOR THE HOT. SOMETIMES MISTAKES ARE MADE WHEN INSTALLING THE FAUCET. MAKE SURE THEY ARE CONNECTED THE SAME AS THE 2 THAT ARE WORKING. IF YOU HAVE THE TIME AND PATIENCE, YOU CAN TAKE A WORKING FAUCET AND INSTALL IT IN PLACE OF THE (mystery faucet) AND SEE IF YOU HAVE THE SAME RESULTS. IF YOU GET HOT WATER IN THE TEMPORARY FAUCET, THEN YOU HAVE A DEFECTIVE FAUCET. THESE ARE A FEW TROUBLE SHOOTING TIPS I HOPE THAT MAY HELP YOU.....JOE
