Customer Question

We have two Mira Sport Showers fitted in around the year 2004. They have worked well up to date. One shower blew its house fuse two days ago but worked ok for two days after the house fuse was reset. The shower failed again today but the house fuse had not failed. There is obviously an internal problem with the shower Please advise the likely cause

Plumbers_Mate : The likely cause is the heating element.
Plumbers_Mate : a short would cause a trip or a fuse to blow
Plumbers_Mate : a total breakage of the element would produce no circuit and no trip
