Buy a current tester( under a tender) and test if supply is going to pull cord (remove the 2screws on cover of pull cord. )Ifyou have power then it's you pull cord that needs replaced if not its mains fuse
Only on normal head.If you have normal set-up hand held diverts before filter.From the stand point of a 35 yr master plumber,your wasting your money,unless you gulping a lot of water while you shower.Lots of gimmicks out there,like drain cleaning chemicals complete waste of money
I suspect you have gravity fed hot water system and the mixer cannot balance the high pressure of the cold mains against the low pressure of the hot water. Either install a shower pump. Means installing electrical connections and quite a bit of plumbing Or a mechanical pressure reduction valve on the cold input pipe to the shower
The control unit, hose and shower head - depending on the type, some heads will hold water. Remove them and check to see if they are exhibiting signs of mold or possible failure. At 11 years old, the element could be on its way out. If your Mira unit has an auxiliary pump, it should be checked as well. If it's the shower head, you can try to soak it in white vinegar to remove the smell, or simply replace it. If you have well water, you should consider flushing the system to be sure water isn't being trapped somewhere. Also, if the iron content of the water is high, or if your water softener isn't operating properly, that could be an issue as well. The Mira control unit may need to be de-scaled or otherwise checked.
Check the shower stall walls (with no tub) at the bottom where they meet the basin, unless the shower enclosure is all one piece. There could be mold behind the intersection of the walls and base.
Look for any trace of mold growth around any other enclosure components.
If the shower is in a tub, remove the overflow cover on the tub and see if there is any trace of mildew or mold in that area. Follow your nose.
Finally, check for any excessive build up of soap scum, although this is less likely because you'd notice it more readily.
Things like this can be tough to diagnose, so just take things slow and one at a time.
This sounds like the elements or you just may need to turn the heat up. If it under two years old call the manu on the warranty. They make a good product so they should help you. I would check the heat setting first, though I doubt it is going to be the prob.
If you are having trouble only at the one fixture (shower), and no where else, the problem is most likely in the shower valve...which either needs new cartridges, or a complete replacement.
hope this helps
