shower temperature


Postby klingon » Thu Apr 03, 2008 9:15 pm

why should the hot water from my shower be tepid compared to the heat of my bath hot water ?. I have a condensing boiler in the kitchen, and a hot water tank /immersion heater upstairs and a cold water tank in the loft. i think shower unit above the bath is gravity fed.

There are pins that can be put in the shower controller to stop by accident it getting too hot. Often there is a button to allow you to over ride it. Maybe you have pin in too low of a setting?

"i think shower unit above the bath is gravity fed"

Might be a daft question - but is your shower electric or mixer ?

Just with you saying "i think" best to be sure - for the correct help and information

in that case as ericmark has said it'll probably be a thermostatic shower or have some sort of device to prevent people scalding themselves.

Read the manufaturers instructions it should explain how to set the maximum temperature setting.

You could try reducing the flow of the cold water to the shower - see if that helps improve the temperature.
