Sounds like it is clogged. Buy a bottle of CLR, put some in a bowl that the shower head will fit in, remove the shower head from the pipe and let it sit in the bowl of CLR for a few minutes. If you run a search, there are regular household items that you can buy instead of the CLR. Might be cheaper.

    If you have a single valve instead of separate valves for hot and cold, it may be clogged. Unfortunately, it will need to be removed from the back side.

SOURCE: triton topaz t80i. Power to unit ok, but no water flow.

I fitted my new triton amber 3 electric shower but no water comes out when turned on. The plastic inlet has a copper compressible fitting and the light comes on when the setting is at stop position so there is power going to it. When I turn the setting no water comes out. The fuse is only 30 amp at my fuse box, the shower is 8.5kw,do you think this is the problem? It worked for my last redring shower. Or would it not work if i;ve tightened the compressible fitting to the inlet too tight?
Thanks for any help.
Gary.

I have a triton Amber 3 shower. No water flows when switched on - but the mains LED is lit and water is available


the solenoid has failed,thus not opening up to allow water flow,i have found that spares are fairly expensive for tritan. if you find out the rating ie 7.5 kw etc then buy a replacement shower from wickes their showers are tritan and are normally like for like fitting,also a lot cheaper than showers that have tritan marked on them.

Hi, I have a Triton Power shower, it has worked fine for the last few years but today the water stopped. The pump is still running but nothing is coming out. Would you have any ideas. Thanks, Gary


Hi Gary, Sometimes things like pieces of worn out faucett washers get in the shower head water line and clog things up. The only alternative is to disconnect the plumbing starting from the shower head back to the wall and start removing the pieces of rubber. There could be a problem with the impeller in the power shower pump but again you would have to gain access to the pump impeller and inspect it for damage. An impeller can fail in may ways... most of the time it is either broken blades of a broken hub of the impeller. Other times the housing for the impeller can be broken and water bypasses inside of the pump vs exiting the pump.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My Triton (Jade) electric shower has abruptly stopped supplying hot water. The pressure appears unchanged and altering the temperature control dial has no effect on the heat. Is it likely that, if needed,...

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.
