Question about Plumbing

1 Answer

Our five year old Hansgrohe Ecostat Thermostatic Mixer for our shower no longer provides hot water under the same pressure that it did when it was new. I suspect scale build-up inside the thermoelement. Should I pull and replace the thermoelement or is there a way that I can clean it so that it will again give us pressurized hot water?

check for sediment in your valve body... sometimes sediment can build up particularly in hot water pipes and that can cause the pressure balancing function of the valve to limit total hot water and therefore you cant get it hot enough... here is a link to what I think is the proper valve and the instructions for installing it... you'll want to follow the instructions for flushing and pressure testing... if you have good pressure at the thermo body then you might try adjusting the hot limit stop also covered in the document linked below...

Remove the handle by loosening the screw near the bottom. You should see a plastic ring, probably green, that is the hot water safety. Adjust it so that the handle will turn further for more hot water. It most likely pulls out, then turn it left, reinsert and reattach the handle.

Hansgrohe ecostat not at full water flow


The most likely cause for a decrease in flow on the Ecostat mixer is debris in the filter screens. Try removing the thermostatic cartridge and cleaning the filter screens on the the cartridge. Doing so will most likely resolve the low flow issue. If you need instructions feel free to contact me at Hansgrohe Tech. 1-800-334-0455. Press 2 for Tech and ask for David Scarborough. I'll be happy to provide instructions for the Ecostat mixer.

Hansgrohe shower thermostat: water is getting only Lukewarm. Hot water ok in sink and throughout rest of house.


The first thing to try is cleaning the filter screens on the thermostatic cartridge. Hansgrohe thermostat valves have filter screens to protect the element from debris or water deposits. If they begin to get clogged the valve will have a hard time regulating temperature.

Hansgrohe Ecostat (with part 94282000 thermostat). Shower runs fine for a few minutes then boiler shuts down and shower runs goes cold. Boiler starts up again after 30 seconds and runs fine for a few...


Check the 94282000 cartridge for debris on the filters. If your boiler requires a certain flow rate to come on, then you must get enough flow through the cartridge to make that happen. Also, if your boiler is producing very hot water, the cartridge will self regulate and reduce the hot flow accordingly. try lowering the output temperature of the boiler to resolve that possibility.

To adjust hotter


Your shower has been installed for a while and you are noticing the dial must be turned further and further to the hotter settings to get a normal shower - In this case the filter on the hot inlet is getting clogged with debris. Refer to the cleaning instructions in the manual that came with your shower, or contact Hansgrohe USA by calling 800-334-0455 for the documents.

If your installation is brand new or old, debris on the filter is the number one cause of this problem. You can test it by noticing if there is a drop in pressure when you dial to a hot setting as opposed to the cold setting. The drop in pressure indicates dirt on the filter where water has a tougher time getting through.

Filters on a shower valve may seem strange to US consumers. Your old two handle valve system woul run for years without needing servicing. Now you have filters to deal with. These filters, like any filter need to be cleaned periodically and the frequency depends on the quality of your water supply system.

The real benifit, is that the filters protect your smart valve and the shower head from malfunctioning due to debris.

The thermostatic mixing spool cartridge may be worn out. The low water pressure may indicate sediment in the cartridge as well. This can be easily removed by hand tools

Want to buy a thermostatic shower column which I believe was made in china--it looks beautiful but only has a 1 year warranty --sold only by Rona--will i have problems with it?


One year warranty is just good enough. Verify from Rona
if it will really honor the warranty. Nowadays, Chinese
product are now better than before. They learn it from the
American companies having facilities in China for lower
labor cost, and no strikes. You may buy the Thermostatic Shower.
