My 12 yrs old house has now got excessive clonking noise coming from the internal pipe system-seems to occur every 20 mins or so-even I believe caused the fracturing of the backing plate where clamp...


Normally clonking noises are caused by loose pipework.

As the valve closes the inertia in the water bangs the pipe against the wall.

For instance in heater radiator systems it can also cause a continuous banning noise when water under pressure is pumped through it, usually in sync with the rotation of the pump motor.

I have a mira duo shower why does it make a high pitched squeal when in use the shower is onley 3 months old and has done this from new


Hi Derek

I trust you are well

Sounds like it might be a air bubble in the waer pipes, try removing the shower head and run the hot and cold water together for a minute, then remember to FIRST TURN OFF THE HOT WATER then turn off the cold water and replace the shower head and test as normal.

Hope this helps

Kind regards

My mira sport shower when switched on runs afew seconds and stops, then when switched off runs afew seconds then goes off. pls can someone advise. thank you


detach the hose from the shower head and clean the filter screen and do the same with the shower head. When you have the shower head detached turn the water on to the shower and see if anything comes out into a towel or bucket.

Mira thermostatic shower water dripping from bottom of casing


Switch off the power supply to the shower at the consumer unit, it will probably have its own individual circuit breaker as it is such a heavy user of power. Try now to switch the shower, it should be dead and that is good. Remove the control knobs and remove the front of the shower unit. Check the electrics with an electrical screw driver to make sure that there is nothing that will cause electrocution. Trace the source of the leak, the most likely place is the compression joint to the mains water pipe. Tighten the compression nut until the dripping stops. Dry everything off with a paper towel and check there is no sign of further leaking. Reassemble the front with the knobs and switch the power back on.

Mira Sport shower running luke warm


Your hot water must come from your coil in boiler and not from a seperate hot water heater - more then likely furnace hasn't been on for heating your house nor has it been on for any draw of hot water. You have to wait till it goes on and brings the water temperature up to your setting or get a hot water tank put in or a new type wall mounted gas instant hot water unit.

Every time we use the shower there is a very pugnent smell [fishy] all drains been checked, all pluming been checked, all water is fine. shower is 11 years old could this be the problem. the shower we have...


Also check the following things:

The control unit, hose and shower head - depending on the type, some heads will hold water. Remove them and check to see if they are exhibiting signs of mold or possible failure. At 11 years old, the element could be on its way out. If your Mira unit has an auxiliary pump, it should be checked as well. If it's the shower head, you can try to soak it in white vinegar to remove the smell, or simply replace it. If you have well water, you should consider flushing the system to be sure water isn't being trapped somewhere. Also, if the iron content of the water is high, or if your water softener isn't operating properly, that could be an issue as well. The Mira control unit may need to be de-scaled or otherwise checked.

Check the shower stall walls (with no tub) at the bottom where they meet the basin, unless the shower enclosure is all one piece. There could be mold behind the intersection of the walls and base.

Look for any trace of mold growth around any other enclosure components.

If the shower is in a tub, remove the overflow cover on the tub and see if there is any trace of mildew or mold in that area. Follow your nose.

Finally, check for any excessive build up of soap scum, although this is less likely because you'd notice it more readily.

Things like this can be tough to diagnose, so just take things slow and one at a time.
