My house was built in 1986 so I assume the Feltonmix shower head/mixer is the same vintage. I have had an Infinity hot water system installed When showering at a cooler temperature (approx 39 degrees) the hot water fluctuates in the shower but is constant at the other outlets. Could the mixer be past its use by date?

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.

SOURCE: cold water suply filling up header tank in loft thru hot water suply on shower.

hi did you run a seperate cold water supply from the storage tank to the shower pump & also a seperate hot supply from the hot water cylinder, it sounds as though the cold water is crossing into the hot service & pushing its way up to the tank as its the only way it can go, sounds as though the cold water connection to the shower is not tank fed & possibly directly off the water main.?

SOURCE: Installing a Mixer Shower from a Combi Boiler.

hi there, your boiler will perfectly match the mira excel ( a great choice i might add) a 24cdi will give about 9.8 litres a minute flow rate hot water.
The mira excel is suitable for any plumbing set up and there installation instruction are very well laid out & their helpline is fantastic.
The hot water will fluctuate accordingly to the time of year as the cold water temp coming into the property will vary. but the boiler will modulate to compensate.So in brief in the summer you will notice it hotter than you would in the winter, this has nothing to do with the boiler just the incoming temp of the cold water.

SOURCE: Water Temperature

hi,

from what you have described it sounds like a thermostat problem.either scaled up or the filters could be blocked?
You do not mention what model it is?
you will need some specialist tools but you need to identify what model 1st & then we can go from there?

Kindly

SOURCE: Hi, Advice please, my shower when on hot comes

If you are taking about then neck of the shower head this is what you must do. its no need to turn the water off to the house or to the bathroom first you will need a pair of channel locks and some Teflon tape. first remove the shower head if you dont want to scar the nut on the shower head place cloth between the pliers and the fitting, once removed (very important) turn the channel locks upside down stick one side of the blue handle up in the neck of the shower and rotate to your left to loosen if you are having a leak leak there it should already be semi loose, once removed wrap the threads with the Teflon tape and re-insert making sure it is tight, then wrap the the outer end of the neck with Teflon tape and place the head back on.The reason it leaked is because the plumber who installed it did not tighten it up completly because he wanted it to look straight coming out of the wall and the additional water pressure causes it to leak wheras the hot water causes it to expand and seal

I JUST INSTALLED A TITAN N-120 TANKLESS HOT WATER HEATER AND IT WORKS FINE FOR ALL THE SINKS BUT IT IS NOT PROVIDING HOT WATER TO THE SHOWER AND THE WATER FLOW HAS DIMINISHED IN THE SHOWER AS WELL.


It's doubtful your water heater unit is the problem. There is simply no reason for it to only work on sinks unless some how the pipe size was drastically reduced coming out of the unit so sinks got plenty of hot water but the shower does not. Take a second look at the installation. The pipe should not be less than 1/2" coming out. If that's OK then consider a clog or valve problem.

Shower temperature fluctuating and will not stabilise


You haven't provided much information to help narrow down the source of the problem.

Is the flow of both hot and cold water flowing freely? Are the water lines not clogged internally with corrosion or residue? Is it possible that the water is being diverted such as in an apartment building or to an outside spigot (sprinkler system) or kitchen faucets (dishwasher)?
Is your water heater temperature setting correct and is it supplying sufficient hot water flow to the shower?
Do you have a temperature balance cartridge in your shower faucet? If yes, it could possibly be faulty.

You need a new cartridge for the shower located behind the handle.

Hot water tank does not work when shower is on, it does however work when the faucet in bathroom is on. It quit working in the shower about a month ago.


  1. COLD MIX, HEATER DEACTIVATES
    If inlet water temperature is over 70°F due to geographic location, water maybe very hot out of the tap. This requires a lot of cold water to be added with it in order to attain a useable hot water temperature. The addition of too much cold water will overpower hot water demand from the tankless water heater. This slows the flow within the tankless water heater, decreasing it below activation point, which shuts off the heater. The end result is nothing but cold water coming out of the outlet. See: TWH E2-04 Overcoming fluctuating temperatures [PDF].
  2. FLUCTUATING WATER PRESSURE
    If the water pressure in the home is erratic and the water flow is not consistent while a tap is opened, then the temperature of hot water will fluctuate. The minimum water pressure for the home should be 30psi or greater. For people on well systems the minimum pressure range is 30-50psi. The use of a pressure reducing/regulating valve is an effective way to maintain constant water pressure to the water heater. Watts brand 25AUB- ¾" or N35B-¾" pressure reducing/regulating valves or equivalent is suggested.
  3. CHANGING FLOW RATE
    Major changes in flow rate can adversely affect the output water temperature of the heater. Increases from one major fixture running to multiple fixtures running at one time can cause the temperature to fluctuate. Stay within the heater's specifications. See: TWH E2-03 Outlet temperature vs. flow rate [PDF].

Good Luck,

Possibly switch off hot and cold water then undo cold water flange closest to the outlet and see if water comes out.if it does, tap assembly is faulty. If not, go back to where next available connection to the pipe was made. Work back untill you find the problem.

Triton t80si shower is very hot even on a low setting then fluctuates between hot & cold, pressure switch is not activating but pressure seems low any advise will be gratefully received.


If the water temp is fluctuating from very hot and cool the problem could lie with a blockage in the inlet to the shower, scale inside the heater can, shower hose needs replacing or the shower head needs to be cleaned The problem is a "slowing" of the water across the heating elements which causes the water to pick up too much heat

I just bought a repo house which has a grundfos circulation pump u p 15 installed at the water heater. House built 2005 4260 sq. Feet. House has 4 showers only one of them gets hot water. All sinks get hot...


that pump is likely to be a hot water return pump not a booster pump. it sound like a large property so its likely the hot water system requires balancing to get the hot water to the extreme areas. If all the hot outlets have some form of isolation valve try closing all but the affected areas and see if hot water comes out. If so only open the closed outlets enough to give you reasonable flow. This hopefully will force the hot water to the affected areas.
