Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
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.

Replace the blue 100nf capacitor on the pcb board near the top. Mine was down to 18nf. New cap ( change out of 50p ) at Maplins or RSComponents cured the problem.

I had the same problem with a brand new Triton Martinique. Fitted by a plumber, the water pressure checked out at just under 3bar. The minimum for the shower is stated as 1.5 bar. Rang Triton, stroppy woman told me to check the pressure where the water enters the shower. Despite explaining that we were getting the minimum flow (11 litres min) out of the shower hose with the head off, she would not accept that the shower had a fault. After reading this blog, I checked the micro switch and found the plunger that is supposed to rise to activate very stiff. Having moved it up and down a few times, I re assembled the shower and tested it. It worked perfectly. Turning a tap on to reduce the pressure, the safety device worked, turning the tap off produced sufficient pressure to operate the shower again. It's a shame Triton couldn't have been more helpful rather than just going on the defensive!

how on earth is this related to gaming consoles or PS3 ??
Please post under correct sections next time.
Anyways, it looks like a common problem for the Triton Shower, and it might cost you some $90 to fix it.
