New Triton Amber shower dripping from shower-head.

Postby J9 » Sat Feb 14, 2009 8:25 pm

Plumber fitted replacement Triton Amber ll shower yesterday and its dripping excessively from the shower head.

Triton are willing to send an engineer out to look at it under warranty, but not for 2 weeks.

Is there anything that we can try to fix it in the meantime?

Simply Build It

Get plumber back as first port of call. Did he supply as well as fit? If he supplied then he has an obligation to come back and not just try and pass the buck direct to the manufacturer.

In any event he should be able to diagnose the problem without waiting for a manufacturers engineer even if that means "send a new one Mr Triton under warranty and I'll bill you for fitting it".

On a more practical level though please quantify "excessive". You may be able to live with it if its not very much. If it is a lot then you can ask your plumber to isolate it at the full bore isolating valve he fitted if there wasn't one in situ before.
