If its a trickle occasionally its normal, when you turn off shower the water is still in pipe right up to shower head, it cools down, contracts and backs away from the head, when house gets warmer water expands up to the shower head and trickles out.

SOURCE: i have a drip, drip, drip from my shower head on

A shower head will drip for a period of time but I will assume that it is dripping continually. Servicing the Mixing Valve is what is needed to fix the continual drip. there are several 'O' rings washers that eventually wear down causing problems. These parts are serviceable and kits with instructions can be purchased at plumbing shops, DIY Stores, Hardware Stores. I hope this has helped thanks for using FIXYA. Good luck and have a great day.

SOURCE: triton electric shower runs cold

hi it sounds as though the thermostat has gone on top of the can assembly, or moreover it has scaled up & the element needs replacing, if thats the case your better off buying a new unit as the cost of the can assembly & the fitting it will be nearly as much, plus witha new unit you'll be getting a 2 yr guarantee?
Just a thought!

SOURCE: The water comes out of both the shower head and

I will have to assume this issue developed and was not present at first use after the initial installation.

There are generally only two reasons for your problem. The first is that the diverter mechanism is simply wearing out and/or broken. The second it that there is a foreign object preventing it from doing its job correctly. Either way the diverter must come out. I have provided a couple of links below that should help get it out.

Once out, put a wadded up towel over the end of the tub spout opening so as to prevent any water from coming out of it. Then, for just a moment, turn your shower on full and adjust your temperature from full cold to full hot. This process should dislodge any foreign matter and send it out the opening the diverter came out of and also will probably get you wet. I usually plug the tub so I can catch what, if anything, comes out. Having a second person holding a bowl over the diverter opening helps reduce the water splash.

Rinse off the diverter and reinstall it. Turn the shower on and see if there is any difference in how much water comes out the spout while in the shower mode. If nothing has changed then the next step is to replace the diverter.

The diverter assembly part number is A603819

The water flow from my triton electric shower does not stop even after unit is switched off


28487001 is not an electronic shower head made by Hansgrohe. It is an overhead shower head that has no electronic parts. Triton is a completely different company. If you have an electronic shower system by Triton you will need to contact Triton. If you have a Hansgrohe product feel free to contact Hansgrohe at 1-800-334-0455.

Water flows continuosly for 1minute after switched off


You need to check all valves, one of them must be broken or too old.

Also the pressure is a little bit higher in there, but there is nothing to be afraid of.

I have a triton dart shower which is operated by turning a flow control block. This is so hard to turn that I sometimes struggle and my family require my assistance. It is just as difficult to turn off...


I can't offer you a solution but will say that I have the same problem with my Triton Dart. I have put it down to a build up of hard water inside the valve but not sure. Think I'm going to have to contact Triton under their warranty although they do say that they will not cover faults resulting from limescale.Great

Hi, I have a Triton Power shower, it has worked fine for the last few years but today the water stopped. The pump is still running but nothing is coming out. Would you have any ideas. Thanks, Gary


Hi Gary, Sometimes things like pieces of worn out faucett washers get in the shower head water line and clog things up. The only alternative is to disconnect the plumbing starting from the shower head back to the wall and start removing the pieces of rubber. There could be a problem with the impeller in the power shower pump but again you would have to gain access to the pump impeller and inspect it for damage. An impeller can fail in may ways... most of the time it is either broken blades of a broken hub of the impeller. Other times the housing for the impeller can be broken and water bypasses inside of the pump vs exiting the pump.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My triton martinique electric shower low pressure light comes on and the water goes cold but there is nothing wrong with the pressure


Hi,

I had a brand new Triton Rapide 3 with this issue, we had good water pressure but the light on the front would keep coming on.

I found there was a micro switch located at the front almost dead center of the shower, couldn't miss it when you removed the cover. A plastic arm below this switch is raised when the water pressure increases tripping this switch and allowing the heater to come on.

I found two things wrong with this, one this plastic leaver was thin and bent easily and secondly the switch did no line up overly well with the lever. Easily fixed, I cut an inch off the end of a zip tie or panduit strap, and super-glued it to the top of the lever (not the switch as the glue will probably ruin the micro switch.) 5 minute job later and with the shower back together it works beautifully. My wife will be happy, you wouldn't believe the torrid of curses I got this morning having only replaced the old unit last night.

Probably don't need to say this but, make sure you isolate the power before removing the cover.
