Most conventional showers have brass seats or rubber seats that can deteriorate over time. these will leak or dribble and not maintain your temp.. Rubber and brass seats are a fairly common and easy replacement. It sure beats trying to rip out a shower valve.

You are probably running a low flow shower head and have not had any maint. done on the unit. When the water flow is low and the unit is dirty it can't exchange enough heat to the water and this causes the heat exchanger to gradually increase in temp. The unit then shuts down to allow the heater to cool. This is an automatic reset high limit switch that will turn the burners back on automatically. This problem can be exasperated by 1/2 inch trunk lines. Call a hvac tech in your area to come and clean the unit. He should also be able to increase the draft inducer fan motor speed to allow more cooling of the heat exchanger.

Have triton ivory electric shower but flow rate is rubbish when set to 7 or 8 too make water hotter why?


How cold is the water coming into the heater?
How long has it been in use?
Do you have 'Hard' water?

It sounds like a scaling, and flow restriction problem--
Tell us more what you are trying to do, and what you are working with-- (as far as water, hardness, pressure, age, etc.)

Modern shower valves have an "anti scald device" in them to prevent scalding from to hot water.

They come preset at 120 degrees.

Sometimes they can start to malfunction and all you get is warm, not hot water, they can also be intermittent.

This will only effect the shower valve though, not the other faucets.

We have installed a rinnai water heater in the basement. Since it takes a little time before the hot water arrives in the kitchen or upstairs in the shower, we are wasting qite a bit of potable water every...


The only way to reduce water waste would be to have a plumber install smaller pipes coming from the water heater to each individual point of use. The normal way of plumbing a house uses a large pipe that has smaller pipes that go to each sink, tub, shower, etc. The larger the pipe, the more water is in it and the longer it will take to get hot water to where it is going. An electric tank won't save you from wasting any water unless you have a separate hot water circulation system installed. This would keep the hot water drawn out to the far ends of the plumbing system and allow the hot water to reach it's destination alot sooner. However, keeping a tank full of water hot is not economical and a circulation system basically turns your pipes into a radiator causing you to waste electricity. I know it may seem that you are wasting alot of water waiting for the hot water to get there, but in the long run you and the environment are coming out ahead due to the saved energy and efficiency of the Rinnai unit. Also just in case you were thinking of it, a circulating system is not compatible with a Rinnai water heater.
