Piece of P: youre prob right and its the pressure relief device, which is a silicone rubber ball that gets blown out of a branch of the exit pipe just behind where the hose screws on. If you are careful you can push it back with a small (non sharp) screwdriver etc, looking up from underneath. It would be easier to see if you unscrew the hose first.
Good luck!

Harry is right, it is a pressure release device that is made from a silicone rubber ball that has been blown out.
But I cannot push it back in as the relief device is flush against the wall. I need to take the front cover off.
This is very easy, a 2 minute job from start to finish. Prise off the label that says "Gainsborough 9.5se" and undo the screw underneath. You then want to unscrew the 2" long white plastic tube that is bottom right. The silicone ball can then be pushed back in easily. Be careful not to drop and lose the ball when you take the tube out; or simply remember to put the plug in.

Why is my Gainsborough 2000x shower not heating the water passing through?


I sounds as if the element has failed... if you isolate the power to the shower you could test the element with a multimeter..

I have a gainsborough ps1600 shower. Water pressure has dropped. Doesn't help when head is removed. Can still adjust temperature but not speed/power


If the water pressure dropped at a sudden moment, it sounds more like an issue with the water pressure leading into your shower, and not a problem with the shower its self. Try seeing if other water sources in the same area of your shower have the same low water pressure issue.

Turned on a triton trance electric shower it was working ok then it stopped coming out of the shower head and coming out of the overflow pipe at the bottom of the shower unit


The overflow pipe is a pressure relief device which is a small rubber ball that get's ejected when the water pressure inside the shower is too high. You will need to get a spare part to replace this. These generally operate because the showerhose is in poor condition and has collapsed internally, or the showerhead has become clogged up so check these things first.
Good luck.

Hi, Advice please, my shower when on hot comes normal out of the shower head but when water temperature normal it stream out of the bottom of the wall fitting, gainsborough shower 2 years old approx....


If you are taking about then neck of the shower head this is what you must do. its no need to turn the water off to the house or to the bathroom first you will need a pair of channel locks and some Teflon tape. first remove the shower head if you dont want to scar the nut on the shower head place cloth between the pliers and the fitting, once removed (very important) turn the channel locks upside down stick one side of the blue handle up in the neck of the shower and rotate to your left to loosen if you are having a leak leak there it should already be semi loose, once removed wrap the threads with the Teflon tape and re-insert making sure it is tight, then wrap the the outer end of the neck with Teflon tape and place the head back on.The reason it leaked is because the plumber who installed it did not tighten it up completly because he wanted it to look straight coming out of the wall and the additional water pressure causes it to leak wheras the hot water causes it to expand and seal

No water coming out of shower


First you should check the screens st the ends of the hose to be sure they are not clogged. The shower head as well. Otherwise it could be the water control valve, solenoid or thermal cut off.

Just installed shower and faucet in bath tub when you turn the water on the water comes out of the faucet and shower head. When you pull the lever for just the shower the water cuts off at faucet and comes...


Verify the height from the shower valve to the Shower head, the instructions specify the correct distance if it is too short the pressure could be getting up to the shower head.

Perhaps the water pressure it too high at the valve not allowing all the water down the faucet outlet, there are set screws on the sides of the shower valve to adjust the water allowed in the mixing chamber.

Something is restricting the water flow to the faucet, creating enough pressure to send some of the ater supply up to the shower.

I hope some of these ideas help
