Grotherm 800 bath shower mixer just fitted with pumped feed but not giving any pressure

Hello Mark Bentley,

In California... (MY OPINION... every bit)

It is called "social engineering".

FOR More than 25 years... before "the drought)
and without public knowledge MY state mandated
water flow restriction at the VALVES

Although the shower VALVES... were MAUFACTURED
prepared for 1/2 inch PIPE FITTINGS... FINAL
MACHINING severely reduced the holes through
the side of a typical body... were smaller than the
shower-head & faucet NOW sold in CALIFORNIA...

Back then... That was 1½ or 2½ GPM
water restriction... (I don't remember which).
It was part of the VALVES CONTRUCTION...

I am PRETTY SURE you are going to have to call
GROHE and find out if there is ANYTHING they
can recommend... now that your VALVES
are installed & finished over... What can increase the
allowed water FLOW...

Only a traveling DENTIST would have the tool
to work from the INSIDE of the valve...

Just my opinion...

I have a bath shower mixer with a shower set. I cannot get water to come out of the bath tap, only for the shower head. The fitting in the middle if the taps will not stay down.

Go right away back for replace if there is warranty in between 8 days, if not then there should often a simple mixer maintenance set for sale for the brand and exact model mix faucet. often from simple plastic if its an older (mostly solid) mixfaucet then only to put it 24 hours in a bucket of vinegar or descaling agent.
