    Hi everyone.

    I had a triton T70gsi+ 9.5KW and it developed a problem were it seemed to have no inbetween temps it was cold all the way round till the dial got to the hottest setting and be red hot there was no luke warm or anything inbetween.

    Went and got the exact same shower had it fitted by a professional plumber and now its doing the same??

    Can anyone help or advise please

    On old stuff they used to do fixed price repair but your new one will have warranty

    Assume it was working after plumber fitted?

    Plumber fitted new shower...tested it ran cold and hot and it did so he was happy.

    I went up for a shower turned dial half way so it's just warm...and it runs cold till dial is turned to fully hot. Same issue as 'old' unit

    If old shower worked but stopped and new shower is playing up they must both have a fault. Temperature control is a common fault. Plumber should of fully tested though when fitted.

    They've both got same issue. He ran it on cold then turned dial to hot and it ran hot so i cant really blame him. Obviously i want it luke warm as i don't wanna get burnt and then realised the issue

    On cold it took 12 seconds to fill a 1 litre jug. Hottest setting took 25 seconds to fill a 1 litre jug

    Are they going to do anything about the pressure, what is your main supply pipe made off., and are you on a water meter because im thinking that your main supply pipe has sprung a leak..

    They going to check for a leak at some point apprently they are lead piping and no water meter
