SOURCE: MY Triton T90si electric shower

Most conventional showers have brass seats or rubber seats that can deteriorate over time. these will leak or dribble and not maintain your temp.. Rubber and brass seats are a fairly common and easy replacement. It sure beats trying to rip out a shower valve.

We are a bit confused by the device that you are using to heat the Hot water with- Is it an instantaneous HW heater?--
They are pressure sensitive-- Could it be, that your water pressure drops momentarily, (which causes the instantaneous heater to shut down its flame-- and you get a pulse of Cold water.)

If your hot water is a tank-- It is possible that something is cycling your hot water away-- like rinse pulses on the Washing machine)-- or your dishwasher?

Tell us more about the Rinnal Air Conditioners and what they have to do with Hot water and your SHower?

Tell us more-

Have triton ivory electric shower but flow rate is rubbish when set to 7 or 8 too make water hotter why?


How cold is the water coming into the heater?
How long has it been in use?
Do you have 'Hard' water?

It sounds like a scaling, and flow restriction problem--
Tell us more what you are trying to do, and what you are working with-- (as far as water, hardness, pressure, age, etc.)

I have hot water in my bathroom sink,but not to my shower/bathtub all of a sudden.I went and checked the line and felt it,still plenty hot.I turned the valve off and back on,came back inside and had hot...


You don't indicate what kind of valve(s) you have in your shower/bathtub.

It is sometimes the case, when you have separate hot and cold valves that use the traditional flat washer, the rubber/viton washer wears over time and actually becomes cut, such that a part of the washer protrudes from the valve face.

Hot water will cause the distorted washer to expand. Consequently, as more and hotter water flows through the valve, the washer expands to the point where it constricts the flow of hot water.

Replace the washer, at least on the hot water valve.

Have a combi boiler and the hot water from my taps are running cold to luke warm. My British Gas engineer has told me it is nothing to do with the boiler but is caused by a faulty thermostat cartridge in...


Modern shower valves have an "anti scald device" in them to prevent scalding from to hot water.

They come preset at 120 degrees.

Sometimes they can start to malfunction and all you get is warm, not hot water, they can also be intermittent.

This will only effect the shower valve though, not the other faucets.
