Hi we changed the chrome pipe as it had broken and was leaking the shower was turning on then but pressed the top button to turn it on a few times and it made the noise it was going to start after pressing it a few times it would not work

Hello again, I am sorry for this late reply, as I have been at my work.

 

I have researched the website for Aqualisa showers, There are quite a few models. Please could you tell me how old your shower is? Also do know the model.?

On looking there appears to be a cartridge inside the on/off control. It maybe that this has become blocked with sediment from the water. Causing the problem. Are you in a soft or hard water area.

If you can give me more information I will try to assist you further.

 

Regards

i dont know how old the shower is as was in when we moved here the bathroom was put in about 7 years ago so not that old it is in sussex which is a hard water area

Expert:  fixer2013 replied 1 year ago.

Hello again, Im sorry for the late reply again. I only open up at this time of day.

From what you say I really think that the inner workings of the shower have clogged up from calcium in the water, I also live in Sussex and have had similar problems with Hard Water. 7 years is quite a time without going wrong. As I said the cartridge may need changing , The rough cost I have found is from £40 to £ 100 plus vat according to the model of the shower. It may be a cheaper option may be to purchase a new shower.

Im sorry that I cannot be clearer with this problem.

Regards

JustAnswer... Has seen a spike since October in legal questions from readers about layoffs, unemployment and severance.
Mr Pole-Carew contacted Value and was told that the £820 taken was the company’s ‘estimate’ of the cost to repair the clutch. He said he had contacted a Ford adviser on JustAnswer who told him ‘a perfectly good clutch is highly unlikely to fail from four to five hours of good, or even very bad, driving'.
