    hi all
    I have an issue with the hot water in my shower that you can hopefully help me with.
    Back story
    I recently drained my system in attempt to clear what I thought was sludge in the radiators ( another story ) after I filled the system back up I can’t get constant hot water in the shower , it’s Luke warm but not boiling . Before I could only turn it up three quarters before it got too hot .
    On random occasions it will get very hot but not for long .
    Taps in the sink ten feet away are piping hot the water in the bath taps get hot but only if you don’t turn the tap on too much .
    The shower worked fine before the system was drained but now it’s gubbed
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated
    It’s a Wooster boiler about 5 years old
    Cheers
    Richy

    Have you tried removing the shower if it's a bar type and having someone hold a bucket in front to check your getting hot water and it's definitely the shower ?

    The shower is getting hot water as it goes very hot on occasions ,
    I feel it’s got something to do with the water pressure in the boiler possibly not enough to trip the boiler properly
    It worked fine until the system was drained

    Won't be the pressure but it could be the flow

    With the shower running open a hot tap in the basin does the shower get warm ?
