Fitting Electrical Shower -electrician will do final connection at consumer unit

Distance from consumer unit to shower including drops from ceiling to units approx 12metres
Propose removing bath and fitting 9.5 0r 10.5 electric shower at end where taps were.This is tiles on a studded panel and I am hoping to be able to push up a flexible plastic cold water connector pipe to the shower fitting location, I don`t know whether the tiles are on plasterboard or plywood. There is a blanked off 15mm mains water pipe at the base which I am intending to connect to.
Electric cable to come to shower position from loft above
Any observations on securing the shower fitment would be welcome!
Proposed size of cable 10mm
Does this run from consumer unit (trip type) to ceiling control switch (45am pull switch)to shower fitment?
Will tiling be waterproof enough for shower? or would you suggest raking out joints and regrouting?
Many thanks in advance,
Roger
PS done it before but needing a refresher any advice welcome

Seem to have water leaking under shower into storage competition ment, tried caulking only happens when shower is on and someone is in it very frustrating


Very often happens for a number of reasons

Bad caulking around the shower base and the base drops with the weight of the occupant allowing water past the caulking.

Crack and bad seal on a wall tile.

A split in the base itself which opens up with weight and you can't see with the base empty.

A leak in the pipes behind the wall from the mixer unit to the shower head.

Split pipes or fitting to the drain.

Best way is a full tear down, refurbishment and start anew :>)

Im fitting a show tray in an en suite the stair way comes up underneath so if I fit the shower tray to the wall about 3" of the tray will poke through the plaster board showing above the stairs.


Hi Chris:
Sounds like you've identified the two logical choices.
It may be preferable to raise the shower for at least 3 reasons:
1) Headroom and aesthetics of the stairway ceiling will not be affected.
2) The installation of the shower drain trap will have more space available.
3) It will be easier to provide structural support for the shower base.

Hope this helps.
Cheers

Have a mira sports shower. when i turn on at isolated switch light comes on but when i turn on shower light goes out. no sound of water coming to unit or electrical sound in unit.


Have you checked if when turning on the shower water the electrical trip switch turns off at the fuse board. If the shower does keep tripping the RCD then the shower is the problem.

I just installed the valve new. I have a shoewe head and a hand held that feed from the unit. It was intended to 1) serve the shower heas alone, 2) serve the hand held unit alone, 3) put water to both...


Assuming that your two heads are fed from the typical curved wall mounted shower pipe, what you need is a diverter valve. Removed both heads till it's down to just that curved pipe. Get a diverter valve from a plumbing supply store. Tell the sales folks that you want to install a diverter valve so that in one position, the hand held receives water and in the other, it cuts the hand held and puts it to the reg. shower head instead. They should give you a "T" sort of fitting. The female threads of this screws into that curved shower pipe. Then you will find two male thread ends. These connect to both your shower heads. Finally there will be a push/pull knob that is operated to control which head gets the water.

Every time i turn the shower on it tripps the electric


if you mean it trips the breaker in the breaker box for the house you have a dangerous problem going on.is the shower system a newr fancy one with any pumps for the water etc? in that case it may be a bad pump. if not then you may be getting water into the electrical system somehow and you need an electrician to look into it right away. one other option is does turning on the shower activate any lighting fixtures in the bath? if so then that may be the source but you still need an electrician to service the system asap. dont use the shower anymore until you get it checked out.

Mira thermostatic shower water dripping from bottom of casing


Switch off the power supply to the shower at the consumer unit, it will probably have its own individual circuit breaker as it is such a heavy user of power. Try now to switch the shower, it should be dead and that is good. Remove the control knobs and remove the front of the shower unit. Check the electrics with an electrical screw driver to make sure that there is nothing that will cause electrocution. Trace the source of the leak, the most likely place is the compression joint to the mains water pipe. Tighten the compression nut until the dripping stops. Dry everything off with a paper towel and check there is no sign of further leaking. Reassemble the front with the knobs and switch the power back on.

The switch for shower luminaires and exhaust fans, located over a tub or in a shower stall, shall be located outside the tub or shower space.

I have a Moen Posi-temp single handle tear drop tub and shower that gives me no hot water


i am assuming you have hot water in same bathroom and that its fed by the same pipe? if so ask yourself did i have anything done recently that may have affected the shower ?if not i would think you have some kind of a blockage in fitting. one way to try to clear it is shut off water to house open shower fitting to what used to be the hot side when working,leave shower open,go o lowest level of house open hot side in sink you may get lucky and vacumn(think ****)debri from shower good luck .

Need electrical schematic for Ariel 701 steam show/jacuzzi tub


What I recommend to you is to contact a supplier that handles these units. They might be able to contact the vendor for the product to try and get more info for you. To be honest, I think your electrician is being a little unreasonable. I would consider finding another electrician. I realize he doesn't want to miswire something and then have to replace it but it would take a complete knuckle head to mess up the wiring on a motor. My opinion though!
