John, look at the shut off valve. often those washers deteriorate and small pieces break off and plug things, and the washers sometimes stick and restrict flow.

hi rob the problem is due to an activated thermal overheat switch, you cannot reset this unit as once it is activated it will require a new unit, its a nuisance i agree as i come across this regularly, however its condusive of a scaled up unit so you eventually turn up the shower setting higher to get the water hotter, & inturn activates the thermal switch.
According to which model it is the part is not that overly expensive, you can phone triton direct 7 they will post a new spare to you

patmac make sure the clear hose is a overflow first. then make sure all connections are correct,sounds like an areator problem,some after market shower heads don't come with one you can purchase one at your local plumbing store.

You aren't the first to run into this dilemna.
The size of thhe pipe will affect your system in this way.
If you start 85lbs of pressure in the water main, The meterhas a 1" pipe inlet and a 3/4" outlet. The meter reduced thhe pressure to60 psi and then it is reduced again at the point of entering the structure dropping to 1/2" pipe. By resucing the pressure is upped approx 5-7 lbs. The point of regulator and pipe size is the only time the pressure changes. The lowest pressure will drive a rainbird spribkler,actually several. But too many rainbirds won't affect by pressure as much as volume. The pressure will push whatever is available.By reducing the 3/4 to 1/2" didn't affect your pressure as much as it did your volume.. The reason your hot water starts to run cold sooner is that now you do not have the volume ratio between the cold and hot.It 's 1:1 now instead of 1.25:1. Hot more than cold. It takes more hot water to heat cold water than ittakescold to cool hot. Plus, the hot water you use is being replaced by cold water and that water is cooling what hot water is in the tank as the heat moves to the cold. The heater cannot heat al that water fast enough, but the cold water line is happy as can be.No pressure changes and no temperature changes. Before, you had to turn up the cold to bring the temp down to comfortable or safe. I just had my shower redone and everything is the sme size. Here is something to think about. Ck the shower head. They clog up and cause poor mixing over time. Yoou should be ok. How old is the water heater? Over time they get a build up of calcium and lime which is very detrimental to the heaters efficiency and recovery time. I hope this all made sense to you. At times when we have things done right it seems to be wrong because we are accustomed to the way it was. You will get accustomed to it and find your water heater gobbling less energy. Good luck and I hope it all works out, There is no need to fret. Sincerely -Ned-
