I have never participated in a forum before, so apologies if something is not quite right. My question is this.
Over the last 12 months I have been having problems with my shower. I originally put it down to new houses being built in my locality and the village water supply not been able to keep up with demand. The problem has got progressively worse. It seems that the cold water tank is emptying and not been filling sufficiently quickly enough, therefore the safety cut out on the power shower is coming into play.
The water board checked the pressure on the outside tap which they said was ok - over 30? and are not offering any help. When I looked at the cold tank in the attic it was filling very very slowly, just a bit more than a trickle. It takes about an hour to refill.
I am scared to let the grand children use the shower as the temp gets extremely hot in the final few minutes before the safety valve cuts out - and I don't have a bath.
I have had a plumber look over the system and he said everything in the house was fine but that the water pressure was too low.
