I have a wireless Grohe shower that keeps dripping hot water constantly


Your mixing valve(faucet) has a bad valve and is allowing the hot water to bypass and leak thru shower. You should replace the bad mixing valve or the faucet to repair and stop the leak.

Getting hot water when shower valve is first opened.


If I understand correctly, you have single handled shower faucet.
Normally there is a wait for hot water to arrive at faucet.
But now hot water is already at shower faucet.

Single handled faucets have a mixing area inside valve where hot and cold come together before going into sink.
This mixing valve can have crossover where the hot and cold can pass through to each other even when faucet handle is off. When single handle faucets get old, this can happen.
How it happens:
For example another faucet is turned on inside house, and pressure differential between hot and cold causes hot water at shower handle to pass through mixing area and into cold water line.
So if another faucet has been run, then that lets hot flow to faulty single handled shower faucet.
To confirm this is the problem: turn on other faucet and put ear against shower faucet to listen for moving water.
This condition may also signal there is a water leak.
The problem is not harmful, but will draw cold water into water heater each time, and is energy wasteful.
Replace faucet or have plumber repair problem.

I do not have enough hot water from my shower head. I have plenty of hot water in my bathroom and kitchen sink. What can I do to remedy the problem?


the problem is the hot/cold mix is set wrong ---
remove the water control handle to expose the mix valve -- you should see a small set screw that will either increase or decrease the travel of the hot water valve. --- sometimes instead of a set screw there is a little pop off plastic set ring,, pop off and set to a more advanced travel.
this will increase the amount of hot water that flows to the shower head and the bath tap.

My Bristan Meridian Show start ok with hot water then after a few minutes the water runs cold. Even if you try and increase the temp it still remains cold. You can switch of the shower and start again...


It sounds like 1 of 2 things to me. I will start wit hot water heater. The first test for the water heater is to have someone run the hot water while you hold the hot and cold pipes and see if the water is coming out of the water heater cold when the shower goes cold. Of the water heater is cold coming out then the problem is in the heater. ether a lower element is bad or the dip tube is broken at the top of the tank. if the hot water heater continues to put out hot water when the shower goes cold then it has to be the mixing valve for the hot and cold mix at the shower and that valve will have to be repaired or replaced. hope this gives you a good start. let me know if I can help further.

Hello,
I had the same problem. It was my heater/boiler this one runs my home heating and water. There's a 3 way gateway for central heating and hot water for shower etc. Probaly you got a aire bubble in there. Find the 3 way gateway and give it a knock, the bubble will disapear and the hot water will flow again. I'm sorry for my english but i'm Dutch.

When i turn the shower on to Hot the power of the water drops right down and when i turn it to cold it seems fine, do you know what the problem is.


Has this problem the same for the sink, is this problem the same in other faucets. If not then the problem is in the mixing valve(shower handle guts) Some mixing valves have an adjustment under the handle to let more hot water to mix with the cold. If this is not the case then it is the mixing valve.
