Hi Sorry to hear about that.
How old is your shower?
Also do you have the full model number?
Thank you

the shower is just over one year old and is a Mira Platinum Ceiling Fed - Pumped

Thanks Peter, one last question, does it work fine other than the battery life issue?
Thank for your patience.

Thanks Peter,
This indicates that the controller may have gotten some moisture inside of it. So now it is causing the drain as that will happen if water gets on the circuit board.
The best thing to do is remove the batteries, and eave the battery cover open.
Then place the controller in a paper bag with about 2 cups of uncooked instant rice. and close it up. The rice should wick out the moisture in a few day.This works pretty well, but keep the bag in a warm DRY place and give it until Tuesday, it should be better by then, please let me know how this works for you;-)
Please rate kindly at this time, your question will NOT close or TIME OUT ;-)
I will still be available to you at no additional cost until you are sure things are working as they should.
Have a great weekend Peter!
Thank you.
