If they installed the same pump it is a faulty pump design go with a different design and then report aquability to the attorney generals office for complaints and file one you should recieve a new pump free.

Hi, I have a Triton Power shower, it has worked fine for the last few years but today the water stopped. The pump is still running but nothing is coming out. Would you have any ideas. Thanks, Gary

Hi Gary, Sometimes things like pieces of worn out faucett washers get in the shower head water line and clog things up. The only alternative is to disconnect the plumbing starting from the shower head back to the wall and start removing the pieces of rubber. There could be a problem with the impeller in the power shower pump but again you would have to gain access to the pump impeller and inspect it for damage. An impeller can fail in may ways... most of the time it is either broken blades of a broken hub of the impeller. Other times the housing for the impeller can be broken and water bypasses inside of the pump vs exiting the pump.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Had grundfos shower pump fitted, wheneva a tap is turned on else where in house the pump attempts to start !

Hello. Your shower pump is sensitive to the other taps because your installer failed to install check valves in the system to prevent the backflow of water whenever another tap was turned on. J.

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.

Sanishower operated for short time and then just went to a buzzing noise - first time operation - any suggestions

It needs cleaning out regularly - at least once a year! We have one fitted to a shower that is used daily. The small amount of hair - that falls out every time hair is washed under the shower - builds up and clogs up the pump. We are on our second pump, the first installed just over 10 years ago, this one is under 3 years old and it already looks like it will have to be replaced.

My elderly parent purchased a new tosheba fridge 2 months ago. the fridge failed on Tuesday and approximately $150.00 woth of frozen & fridge stock was lost. Today Thursday the fridge is not repaired...

I didn't even know that Toshiba made refrigerators. All major manufacturers nowdays have spoiled food insurance to at least 300 dollars. I would contact customer service at Toshiba and tell them you want the unit fixed within 2 days or you will return the unit for a refund.

Get vaillant to look at it. It could be installation fault. Their advise is impartial and they can advise if boiler can be repaired.
