What would be the minimum pipe size for drainage from floor trap taking flow from shower and from vanity bowl? What is the minimum pipe size for drainage shower? Ditto from vanity bowl?


That depends on the flow rate you want and your local building codes. When I rebuilt my bath, I had poor flow from both the sink and shower. My sink had 1 1/2 inch pipe and my bath had 2 inch. I replaced the entire sink run with 2 inch after the P trap and the shower I used 2 1/2 inch - problem solved!!

On new Moen shower faucet, when I turn on faucet, water drips from shower also.


The faucet was installed upside down.
The shower riser pipe in the wall is to short( the distance between the faucet and shower head).
One of the biggest problems is if your shower faucet was installed with Pex pipe to the tub spout. Pex pipe will restrict the flow and force the water back up and out of the shower head.
The tub spout must be piped with at least 1/2 brass pipe nipples and fittings, or 5/8 OD. copper pipe and fittings.
Hope this helps, if you further questions please let us know.

This is not an uncommon problem with 'flash heaters' of this type; for safety, they all require a certain minimum of flow before the gas supply is turned on. Some brands/models have a factory-set adjustment for the minimum flow rate.
You might locate the mfr.'s website, contact them and describe your problem. This can also be caused by the modern flow-limited shower heads not allowing enough water to flow to keep the heater turned on.
If you have a retired shower head, you might try replacing the one currently used to see if it allows enough flow to allow proper operation. Either way, it is a waste of water.

Problems with water flowing out of the shower heads


Check the diffuser and screen, try swapping them around to make sure that is the problem. If that is not he problem then the tubes from the exchangers need to be descaled.

Vibration from my shower panel


Sounds like the pipe going to the shower head is vibrating. Not secured tightly indige the wall. That is about the only thing it could be in my opinion. Hope this helps you out .

Want to increase water flow rate through Danze shower assembly


There is a flow regulator in the shower head. You have to remove the shower head and inside just down below the pipe threads, you will see the water saver. It can either be a white disk that can be screwed out or a black piece of plastic that just sits down in ther or a very small rubber washer. If it's the small rubber washer, you will need something pointy to remove it. I use a dental pic for them.

Hi, I had my sani plus for a year now , the shower doesnt work


so the wc works but notthe shower, where the shower connects in on the saniplus is a not return valve which could be stuck in the closed position??
Have you checked thatthe shower trap isnt blocked with hair etc.
If the wc works & the unit is pumping away then the motor is working ok, so it could be a flow switch problem or as i said thers no flow through the shower waste pipe-work due to a possible blockage

The only way to reduce water waste would be to have a plumber install smaller pipes coming from the water heater to each individual point of use. The normal way of plumbing a house uses a large pipe that has smaller pipes that go to each sink, tub, shower, etc. The larger the pipe, the more water is in it and the longer it will take to get hot water to where it is going. An electric tank won't save you from wasting any water unless you have a separate hot water circulation system installed. This would keep the hot water drawn out to the far ends of the plumbing system and allow the hot water to reach it's destination alot sooner. However, keeping a tank full of water hot is not economical and a circulation system basically turns your pipes into a radiator causing you to waste electricity. I know it may seem that you are wasting alot of water waiting for the hot water to get there, but in the long run you and the environment are coming out ahead due to the saved energy and efficiency of the Rinnai unit. Also just in case you were thinking of it, a circulating system is not compatible with a Rinnai water heater.
