Power Shower

Postby showerhead » Wed Mar 18, 2009 5:16 pm

I have a 14 year old Triton 650 power shower. The pump is a separate unit outside the shower cubicle and has failed, Triton are unable to provide a new pump or shower of a similar type. I have a low pressure water system with water supplied to the shower from the mains and a hot tank. The shower is on the ground floor and hot tank on first floor.
Not averse to buying a new shower but as the pumps all seem to be integral these days it looks like the tiling in the shower will be badly affected by pipe work etc.
Any ideas for how to sort this out without having to re-tile would be gratefully received.

For the application you describe you will need a single impellor pump for fitting in the hot water supply, have a look for a monsoon pump.

Just replace the pump. It doesn't have to be a Triton. If you specifically want a Triton Google "" who specialise in spare parts for for all makes of shower - including pumps

I'm intrigued by the "water supplied to the shower is mains and the hot tank" statement. Are you sure its mains cold or is it from your cold Water Storage Tank. Is the pump concerned double ended or single ended? Just for interest.
