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.

Kindly

Richie

SOURCE: shower head leaks water when water is turned on

take out the cartridge from the fixture and make sure it has all of the "O" rings and stoppers.
look at the instruction again, make sue you are installing it the right side up. if all that, the shower still leak, then you need to talk to the place you brought the fixture, it may have a defective cartridge.

SOURCE: I installed a new Delta shower valve. When I turn

It is due to the water pressure. You may need to install
a pressure relief valve at your main cold water line, so
you can set the water pressure and prevent your valve from vibrating, that is it it is annoying you,.Otherwise,
just let it be..

SOURCE: shower/tub combo hot water problem

Hello,
There is a restriction in the faucet or the piping to the faucet on the hot wtaer side...this will be very hard to find and fix... The shower uses less water so it will get hot.... the tub spout allows more water flow so you cannot get the water more then warm...

Take the faucet apart and blow out all the passage ways with air... also run some water from the piping while the guts are out of the faucet, to flush the piping...
Hopefully this will fix you up...

We have no hot water coming out of our bathtub faucet. We took it all apart and water is only coming our of the cold side of the pipe


there is probably a shutoff on the rough-in valve in the wall. Sometimes the seal in that comes apart and blocks the water. Get new stem for valve. Unscrew the nut, replace stem, tighten nut. Clean inside valve before u put new one in.

Do i have to turn water off at main to fit a shower


Yes you do have to turn off the water off at the house shutoff, but it is not necessary to shut the main off, where the water comes into the house from city water there will be an in line valve.

not all that familiar with your particular faucet. but in my experience, most plumbers dont put grease on the valves when installing them . the factory just uses enough grease to get the valve in the faucet. if you have extremely hot water and use it . it wont take to long for it to cause this problem.. just an opinion. i cant imagine how the buildings shutoff could have anything to do with your problem.

Tried to tighten hot water tap to stop a drip and


There is normally a plastic washer at the end of the valve stem which you turn to allow the water to flow and to stop the flow. It sounds like this washer has either deteriorated or been damaged by over-tightening. You will need to remove the stem and replace this washer. It is normally held in place with a screw.

You will need to remove the on-off handle and probably a stem cover to access the flats on the stem where you can place a wrench. These flats will likely be recessed into the shower wall; therefore, it will likely require a deep socket to reach them. Most hardware stores will have the sockets needed to remove and replace these stems.

Of course, make sure that the main house shutoff valve is closed before you start to do this.

Pressure is high can it be adjusted?


Is this a new install? Is this happening with cold and hot water, or just one? Is it just happening with the shower valve open if it's not a new install. it may be the shower valve bad. These can be replaced easily, Lowes $7-14 depending on brand. The water has to be shut off from coming in to the shower. If it is happening with the water running on either hot/cold, the each one has a valve like the shower knob. These go bad and are replaced the same. These release to much water when the rubber seal breaks down inside the valve. Let us know which way it's happening and maybe able to help more.

No cold water coming out of bath/shower, only really hot water


Is it a Delta brand, single handle valve? If so, chances are you need a new "stem" and can be purchased at any plumbing suply store or home store. You will need to shut the water off to the house to do this (unless you are certain you know where the shutoffs are). Good luck

Walk in shower leak into room below


I would unscrew shower head pipe and either pipe dope it or tefilon the threads and then reinstall it. I would also take the handle(s) rosettes off and look for a leak from there with a flashlight, while shower is on. I believe the most comon leak for walk in showers are the door seals. Are you sure it is not coming out from under the door? Another test that yuo may want to preform is to Stopper the drain, fill the shower pan with water and watch for bubbles, or look for leaks from below.
