Question about Hansgrohe Home

Open Question

We have a Hansgrohe Croma 160 Shower set. Our shower head keeps flopping towards us when there is no water pressure coming out. The issue is with the swivel not being tight enough. The issue isn't with the vertical sliding of the shower head holder - that works just fine. The issue is when the shower head is placed in the holder, it isn't still enough to hold it up, and it keeps flopping down. Any help would be most appreciated.

SOURCE: shower too hot

Hi sallypenn

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question seems to be how to adjust the temperature of a shower valve?

I'm going to assume this is a single handle faucet. Most are adjustable under the handle. This is the responsibility of the installer but sometimes they forget and you can't get them back. Anyway this requires a little mechanical ability and a few tools.
First be sure to turn off the water to the faucet, then remove the handle (allen wrench or small screw driver). Most have a temp. adjustment ring right there. Simply pull out, rotate and replace. With some you have to remove the sleeve or bonnet under the handle to expose the adjustment fitting. Reasemble and turn on. It is not uncommon to have to do this two or three times before the customer is happy with the setting. The adjustment fittings usually don't have tenp. setting numbers to go by so it might take a few tries.

Feel free contact me again!

SOURCE: Not enough hot water

Some higher end models do have an adjustment that is behind the face plate. You would have to remove the handle and the screws in the faceplate to expose them. If you have adjustments they will be located on the brass valve body facing you. You will need a flashlight and a flathead screwdriver to make the adjustment. If your model is not equipped with adjustments you could have a faulty valve stem. The stem is comprised of a rubber band like gasket that separates port holes into which the waters flow. There could be some piece of trash blocking the port not allowing adequate water from the hot side into the valve.Some valves stems are also able to be installed upside down causing the same issue as the ports do not rotate fully to allow adequate supply. However you say that you have adequate pressure on the hot side but not warm enough. There is another possibility also based on the way the shower supply was plumbed but there is no need to go into this unless this does not resolve your issue. I hope this is of assistance and thanks for using Fix Ya. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

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: 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.

The water flow from my triton electric shower does not stop even after unit is switched off


28487001 is not an electronic shower head made by Hansgrohe. It is an overhead shower head that has no electronic parts. Triton is a completely different company. If you have an electronic shower system by Triton you will need to contact Triton. If you have a Hansgrohe product feel free to contact Hansgrohe at 1-800-334-0455.

Adjust hot water on hansgrohe metro shower


The hand shower and wall bar does not control temp. The valve in the wall would control the temperature of the water going to the shower. I would need to be able to identify the model number of the valve in the wall to be able to give accurate instructions on temperature adjustment. If you need help identifying this valve feel free to give me a call at Hansgrohe 1-800-334-0455. Press 2 for tech and ask for David Scarborough

Leaks around the edges


The most common cause of this symptom is water deposits building up in the face of the shower head. This will cause the unit to express water around the edges of the hand shower. The first thing to try is cleaning the hand shower with CLR. Remove it from the hose and soak the spray face in the solution for no more than ten minutes at a time. Rinse it well then reconnect to the hose and run water through it. While running rub the rubber spray channels in the face to help further break up and clear out the depsoits. Then repeat the process at least two more times to ensure you have cleared out all the deposits. If you need further help feel free to call me at Hansgrohe. 1-800-334-0455. Press 2 for Tech and ask for David Scarborough.

Hansgrohe shower head water leaking out of connector


Is it a Grohe or Hansgrohe shower head? If it is a Hansgrohe shower head the first thing to check is if the self sealing filter gasket is installed at the connection to the shower arm. Hansgrohe shower heads have a black self sealing filter gasket in the head that some people remove assuming it is a flow restriction device. It is only a filter and does not restrict flow unless clogged with debris. Next make sure the flow restriction device below the filter gasket is still installed. On some models removing the flow restrictor will cause water to be expressed from the air injection ports near the pivot ball. Feel free to contact me at Hansgrohe. 1-800-334-0455. Press 2 for Technical and ask for David Scarborough

No hot water coming through the shower system, though hot water comes through the pipe without system attached


When you adjust the dial to mix the hot and cold for your desired liking, it goes into a mixing chamber before going to the shower head, im asumming your issue is within the mixing chamber.

Shower body three way diverter problem, no water to one port


try taking the shower head off and see if there is something stuck in it. sometimes things will come through the water lines and lodge themselves in the valves as well. if the shower head isn't clogged try dismantling the valve that turns the shower head on and then turn the water on when its out and flush the port out.
