Good evening, welcome to the Technical section in JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will help you today.

I'm sorry that you've had to wait for an answer, but please bear in mind that it's after 10pm on a Saturday night, and this isn't a 24x7 service.

Regarding your shower problem, do you have the user manual for your shower? If not I can probably send it to you. That's the simplest way of describing the method of checking/cleaning the filter. Let me know if you don't have it.

If you receive a phone call offer, please ignore it - these are system generated and outside my control. My understanding is that you won't be charged if there's no phone call.

My humble apologies. Attached is the page from the manual that gives you the instructions, with a diagram. The tools you'll need are:

Don't forget to shut off the water supply first!

You have left me with nothing helpful except ,do I have owners Manuel for triton shower
Customer: replied 4 days ago.
As it stands ,I think I have paid you for “expert” advice For nothing
Expert:  Tim Cooke replied 4 days ago.

The advice doesn't finish until you're happy, so you're being somewhat harsh. Would you talk to me like that if we were in the same room? I doubt it. Please keep this respectful.

You asked for guidance in cleaning the inlet filter. If you want more detail on that, please ask, but so far I've provided exactly what you requested.

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
My man,I had already looked at the Manuel before I contacted this platform;all I was looking for some guidance as to what to remove to get to this filter.you are taking the biscuit by saying look up the Manuel any fool could suggested that
Expert:  Tim Cooke replied 4 days ago.

1. I know only what you tell me.
2. You did not mention that you had looked at the manual.
3. Most people have not looked at the manual.
4. I have been courteous and respectful throughout.
5. I have offered you more detail - you have only to ask.

Looking back at your post timed at 9:58 yesterday, you had concluded that "this is a waste of time and money" before receiving any technical response.

Remote assistance, which this service provides, is a two-way street. It's a low cost service with tens of thousands of happy and satisfied customers. Problem solving usually involves asking many questions in both directions, but occasionally there is someone, like you, who has a hidden agenda and is quick to judge without helping the expert to help them. This service isn't suitable for you and for that type of customer, so I strongly recommend that you use a different service.

I shall now opt out, and wish you luck with whatever it is that you're trying to do with your shower.

Can you refund my money ,as you have given nothing ‘new’
Expert:  Tim Cooke replied 4 days ago.

Can you refund the time that I spent answering exactly what you asked for?

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
You and this platform is a waste of time and money the so called ‘experts’
