Shower too hot or too cold? Start off hot then run cold or just not work at all. At Transgas Services we work on all different types of showers. Whether that be electric showers, power showers, low/high pressure showers, exposed/concealed showers, digitally controlled showers, thermostatic/non-thermostatic showers, mixer showers or showers that work via an external pump we can assist in all your requirements. If your shower does not have any make/model left on it, or indeed didn’t start off with a make and model on it we can still assist and working with our contacts we can try and source spares for it rather than have no option but to replace it immediately.
Electric showers can be repaired but with an electric shower starting from approx. £85-£90 inc VAT it is usually not worth repairing. As long as the right electric shower (electric and plumbing locations in the same places) is chosen then the cost of replacement is usually more cost efficient. Transgas Services can make sure the right one is sourced so costs kept to a minimum.
Thermostatic/non thermostatic showers are usually simple showers and one you have to mix the temperature via the taps on off valve and the other you mix the temperature via the thermostatic cartridge lever. Most common fault is the thermostatic cartridge failing or the washers/cartridge failing so it is constantly dripping. We can repair all problems.
Exposed thermostatic shower valve. Two controls, one on off and one temperature.
Exposed non thermostatic shower valve. (Adjusted by allowing more hot water to flow through the valve, one on off controller only.)
Pumped showers work off an external pump that can be usually installed in the airing cupboard, under the bath or in the loft. Many times we find these pumps not installed as per the manufacturer’s instructions which causes premature failure. We can advise on repairs, bringing the installation up to standard, along with alternatives to pumps being used.
