Question about Home

1 Answer

Thank you for reading this. I am a non-technical home owner. I have a Groge Atrio shower with a thermostat mixer in the wall. The water does not get hot enough so I need to adjust it upward. Do I remove handle from stem then faceplate at shower wall and then have access to the thermostat mixer? I suppose then there is an accessible adjustment valve where I can increase the relative hot water flow? thanks.

You didn't mention what model you have. Here is a link to their web site. You can download a manual, that has detailed instructions on how to adjust. You should have a thermometer to measure water temperature to adjust properly. Go to : http://www.groheamerica.com You can identify your model, and then download the technical product information. Also check the temperature of other faucets in the house to be sure they are getting hot enough, and not a water heater temp problem.

Low hot water tempreture


Your question doesn't give me much to go on, but, If you have installed a new mixer valve in your shower and you can't get water that is hot enough to come out, there is a reason.

All newer mixer valves that I'm aware of have what's called a non-scholding setting that is done at the factory. ( I believe some manufacturers explain how to adjust this, in the paperwork you got with the part, if there are no children living in the home.) This is a child saftey feature, and if you want hoter water, you may have to raise the temperature setting in your water heater.

I hope this helps you.

My thermostatic mixer shower will not turn off


he probably put it together wrong.
there is usually a blue gasket inside for testing purposes, if that is not removed, the valve will not turn off.

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.

Installing a Mixer Shower from a Combi Boiler.


hi there, your boiler will perfectly match the mira excel ( a great choice i might add) a 24cdi will give about 9.8 litres a minute flow rate hot water.
The mira excel is suitable for any plumbing set up and there installation instruction are very well laid out & their helpline is fantastic.
The hot water will fluctuate accordingly to the time of year as the cold water temp coming into the property will vary. but the boiler will modulate to compensate.So in brief in the summer you will notice it hotter than you would in the winter, this has nothing to do with the boiler just the incoming temp of the cold water.
