Question about Home

1 Answer

I have an a Triton T50i shower which is still working, however there is a whining/squeezing sound which starts after a few seconds of turning on the water. It almost sounds like there is some air/ water being pressured out. It does not matter whether I am using the hot or the cold water. Any ideas what this May be?

SOURCE: Triton Electric Shower Temperature too hot

You could have mineral deposits on the temperature probe inside of the unit. If you remove the heater and purchase a bottle of lime and scale remover (lime away) to put inside of it. Let the unit sit full of water and chemicals for 24 hours. Flush out the unit to remove any residue. You may see the water is brown if you have a lot of buildup. Reconnect unit and test your settings. If this doesn't work, install a anti-scalding device, available at a plumbing supply store.

SOURCE: triton electric shower runs cold

hi it sounds as though the thermostat has gone on top of the can assembly, or moreover it has scaled up & the element needs replacing, if thats the case your better off buying a new unit as the cost of the can assembly & the fitting it will be nearly as much, plus witha new unit you'll be getting a 2 yr guarantee?
Just a thought!

SOURCE: No cold water, Only hot water in showers.

The plumbers screwed up when they installed your showers. There are two connections on each shower. one for hot and one for cold. they connected the two hot water lines together with a T fitting and then ran a line to the main hot water line and tied it in. Then they connected the two cold water fittings with a T and ran that line to the main hot water line and tied it in there instead of into a cold water line like they were suppose to. This is the only possible logical solution to this problem. They tied your cold water connections to both showers into a hot water line instead of a cold water line.

SOURCE: no cold water from Moen 2253 tub/shower valve,

Here is a quick check to see if the cartridge may be at fault allowing the cold and hot to mix. Turn off the hot water supply, with hot water supply off turn faucet on. Turn to the hot and cold sides, If you have only cold water then your faucet cartridge is at fault or the cartridge housing is worn. Shut all supply valves and remove cartridge and inspect housing for signs of wear. If wear is visible a new shower valve is needes. If none visible replace cartridge. I have included a link of a PDF file an exploded parts list. I hope this helps in solving your problem. Please rate if the answer helps in any way. Good Luck and have a great week. Jeff

After changing my Delta shower cartridge i hear a whining noise when i run hot water in the shower. If I also turn on hot water in the bathroom sink (at same time) I get a banging noise from the pipes. ...


the banging noise is called water hammer and there are devices that can be added to your water lines to absorb the shock.

As for the noise, when you had the old cart out, did you flush out the faucet by turning in the water for a few seconds after removing the old one? This is a four hand job, one to control the water gushing out of the faucet and the other to conrol the shutoffs.
check seat and spring for correct assembly, the whine is caused by water pressure and flow obstruction.

My triton martinique electric shower low pressure light comes on and the water goes cold but there is nothing wrong with the pressure


Hi,

I had a brand new Triton Rapide 3 with this issue, we had good water pressure but the light on the front would keep coming on.

I found there was a micro switch located at the front almost dead center of the shower, couldn't miss it when you removed the cover. A plastic arm below this switch is raised when the water pressure increases tripping this switch and allowing the heater to come on.

I found two things wrong with this, one this plastic leaver was thin and bent easily and secondly the switch did no line up overly well with the lever. Easily fixed, I cut an inch off the end of a zip tie or panduit strap, and super-glued it to the top of the lever (not the switch as the glue will probably ruin the micro switch.) 5 minute job later and with the shower back together it works beautifully. My wife will be happy, you wouldn't believe the torrid of curses I got this morning having only replaced the old unit last night.

Probably don't need to say this but, make sure you isolate the power before removing the cover.

Triton Millenium Power Shower


generally if the flow sensor notices no water through the pump it will auto matically shut the pump down. so it could be the flow sensor is bad or the pump is not working like it should. now it depends on how old the pump is. i would start with the flow sensor.
