    Again we are having issues with our Mixer Shower, how can we fix it?

    By lowering the Hose Shower Head the Shower Pump starts and once the cold water in the hot pipes has passed the water temperature selected is pumped out ok, at the Varispeed selected.

    Unfortunately after an unmeasured short time the sound of the pump changes and the water being pumped out is just the cold from the Gravity Fed Tank.

    Again after waiting an unmeasured amount of time the Shower Pump may again pump the water at the temperature selected.

    • Is this a common fault with this type of shower?
    • Is this a fault that is easily resolved?
    • Is it simply time again for a new Shower Pump?
