    hi all,

    I was in the shower last week, and it just stopped.
    The trip switch on the main fuse board had flipped down.
    I flipped it back up, power is going to shower.
    It makes normal noise but no hot water, it's not heating water at all.

    I usually have 20 min showers and have been told thats probably too long.
    The shower is about 8 years old.
    Thermostat has been replaced twice.
    Very hard water area, clogs up everything.

    Do you think it is dead?
    Any idea of approximate cost?
    Any ideas or solutions?

    I have been having baths every day and am getting roasted having the central heating on to get hot water :rolleyes:

    Any answers greatly appreciated :)

    Time for change I would think.

    Shower approx cost €295. Fitting about €60 plus VAT

    Thanks for your answer Micky


    :( thats money I don't have right now :(

    I was hoping it might be able to be fixed maybe?

    Anyone else any ideas?

    You could fix it.Element probably around €100 for part and labour on top, over €60 atleast.

    Weighing it up I'd rather a new shower with a warrenty than throwing another part into an old one.

    I'm clean! :)

    Thanks for your advice Micky.

    I rang around got a few quotes, most seemed to be quoting around €290 for shower plus about €60 - €70 labour.

    I shopped around and got a Triton T90xr from a plumbing supplies merchant for €240 and I got a plumber to come and install it the same day I called him! He said €50 for labour over the phone, then said €40 when he was finished! I gave him €70, I was so impressed and I suppose I was smelly too! ;)

    So a good news story!
    The moral of the story is: shop around for your shower!

    Great deal on the Mira elite at the moment... Very sim to the T90

    http://www.buy4now.ie/woodiesdiy/shopping.aspx?loc=C&catid=5.8


    €222.

    How could you go wrong. Traditionaly woodies has always been cheapest on the T90 and b&q on the mira but yes no harm in driving around... You will at least save petrol
