My plumber sent 2 of his lads over to fix a faulty safety valve in the cold water tank earlier today.
While I had both of them here I gave them a look at the one and only electric shower which we have installed in an annex room on the ground floor of the house.
They opened it up and found that 2 of the mains supply wires were fried and shorting.. *dangerous!!**
The model is a Mira play.
Obviously we won't be using this shower until it is fixed and replaced.
Approx 2 yrs ago we had a problem after an ESB outage (brownout) which caused a number of high load appliances to become unsafe.
For example, our geothermal heat pump soft start module was fried.
We installed a surge protector module in the fuseboard in the garage to protect that in future.
I suspect that the same incident may have caused the electric shower assembly to become unsafe.
OK. Main question is .. in ballpark terms how much would I expect to pay to get a Mira play shower replaced and fitted these days ?
Also.. I wonder if my hunch as to the root cause may be correct.
I shiver to think how unsafe that shower has been for such a long time.
We don't use it a lot but ...
