Aqualisa Aquastream - Thermostatic (post 1997) Boost / On / Off 1 Answer

Q: Hi, Have the above model there was cold water leaking for some 2 months, changed the Grey Cartridge, The shower works but the boost does not increase flow. Checked the mains and there is live power, however there is no live power in the shower unit on the loom white connecter. If there is not live power into the loom could it be the Transformer ? How do i check if the transformer is working or not ? Thanks

Aqualisa Aquastream loss of pressure 1 Answer

Q: After a few mins of running, the flow begins to pulse, the sound from inside the shower starts to whirr as if there was air inside, and the result is a total loss of flow while the pump still running.

Tiny drops of water appear at the head everytime the unit makes the pulsing sound.

The pump has been replaced so its not that.

Any ideas??

Submitted 2 days ago | by Phil, Birmingham

A: The water pressure from the tanks should keep the water in the pump area of the shower.

You may have a leak around the cartridge or coming into the shower which would need fixed.

Submitted 487 days ago | by Phil H, Birmingham
! Answer this question

A: Perhaps I am a little confused here but as I understand the problem ......

When you turn the shower on the pump starts running but you have no water, then if you lower the shower head into the bath the water comes through you return the head to the bracket and the shower works perfectly!?

If this is the case then you may have an installation fault see drawing page 6 of link below

http://www.aqualisa.co.uk/upload/INSTALLATION%20GUIDES/Install_Aquastrm.pdf

Although no measurements are given the shower head should ideally at least 150mm below the cistern and/or the unit 300mm below the base of the cold water cistern.

This is a fairly common installation fault and as long as you don’t allow the pump to run with no water coming through then it should not be a problem other than the inconvenience

If this has only just started happening then it is possible that you may have a faulty cartridge

Pressure cuts and restarts (2) 1 Answer

Q: Hi, I have tried asking a further question, which the link seems to

accept but then I don't see a reply at all. So can I try via here

please.



I've tried what was in the reply below but the problem persists. So,

to recap, the pump runs and we have full flow and pressure. After 2-3

mins the pump seems to cut out and the pressure drops. Another 1-2

mins later the flow kicks back in and the pressure is back again. This

cycle repeats. It feels as though something is causing pump to stop,

not sure if that means faulty pump or if it's more likely to be some

form of override or control cutting the pump off. In my mind the pump

would either work or not rather than in this intermittent way.



Any suggestions?

pressure cuts out and restarts 1 Answer

Q: Shower will run fine for 1-2 mins then pressure drops as if pump cuts out.After 1-2 mins it'll kick back in again.



Changed hose, but no difference. Is this pump or cartridge related maybe?

Submitted 538 days ago | by EG, Cambs UK
! Answer this question
You should be able to tell by the sound if the pump has cut out. Check your electrical connections.
A:

If these are OK then you probably need a new cartridge.

You will have to find out which cartridge you have.

Pink for a combi or multipoint and grey any system with balanced (equal) pressures.

Remove the on/off knob should just pull forward however it can be a bit of a bu**er then remove the 4 screws that hold the temperature knob in place, remove the temperature knob and then you will see the colour of your cartridge.

If you already have the cartridge and want to carry on and replace it you will have to turn the water off to the shower.

Then remove the cartridge you will need to remove the 4 large screws at the side of the cartridge these have posidrive or ‘Torx’ T25 heads depending on there age.

Pull the cartridge forward to remove.

Before fitting the new cartridge you should replace the small ‘O’ ring at the rear of the body this is another bu**er to change……(something like a crochet hook or the sort of thing that dentists use will help)

It is not always necessary to replace this ring however if there any problems with the cartridge, the first question you will be asked is did you replace the ‘O’ ring? if the answer is no! then you will be told to phone back once it has been replaced.

When you refit the cartridge make sure that the slot, (usually on the right of the body ) the gasket and the body all line up properly then re tighten the screws.

On the older versions you have to reuse the original brass screws if you have this type be careful not to over tighten the screws because the brass inserts in the body may split, on a few occasions you may find they have split when you remove the old cartridge if this happens then you will probably have to replace the body.

Refit the temperature control knob (new screws supplied) the fit the on / off knob, turn the water back on and check for leaks, if everything is OK remove clothes and have a shower!!!

A:
Make sure that you have power to the shower,then.

If the above is your shower, then remove #13 by just pulling forward, it may be tight, there are three screws on part #14 which you remove. #9 has a screw at the top and one at the bottom, the cover will then come off. Check to see if there is water damage to the part between #6 and #15, which is actually #3. You can replace #13 and see if the pump runs. Pressing the base of #3 upward may make the pump run. If so you may have a leak from the cartridge #6 which has damaged #3. Both should be replaced.Answered 711 days ago | Barrie

A: You probably have had a leaking cartridge (Part 6) this willhave leaked down on to the wiring loom (Part 2) and shorted out the loom theseparts will have to be replaced.

To remove the case you need to pull the centre knob forward thenremove the screws from the inner knob, you will then find the two main casesecuring screws at the top and bottom of the case.

Replacement shower unit 1 Answer

Q: Is is possible to purchase a complete replacement Aquastream (post 1997) shower unit as opposed to the individual spare parts?

Submitted 947 days ago | by Anonymous, Unknown
! Answer this question
Good morning,
A:
Thank you for your email.

Unfortunately, the post-1997 edition of the Aqualisa Aquastream was superseded by the new edition in 2003. As such, only parts are now available for this particular unit.

The post-2003 edition of this shower is probably the best replacement for your particular shower. The pipe centres are the same, although the unit sits a little lower on the wall. As such, you may have to trim the copper tails that enter the unit and in some cases you may have to drill a hole in the rear case for the wire entry position.

I hope that this helps you out.

It is just a case of seeing who will give up first, the motor, or you because of the noise!

A:  

Make sure that the shower head is clean and clear, also that the hose isn’t kinked (this can happen just behind the hand set where it is difficult to see) also check the inside of the hose although it can look OK on the outside it could have collapsed internally.

 

The other possibility is an air lock

 

Remove the shower head and lay  the hose in the bottom of the shower tray or bath then turn the shower on to fully cold and allow to run for about 3mins then turn the shower to fully hot and allow to run for 3mins this may draw any air in the system through Answered 1089 days ago | The Doc

A: Yes the cartridge is a sealed unit, therefore it has  to be replaced if it starts to leak.

I am not sure which leaking, however if it is just a problem with a nut perhaps giving it a tighten will nut you mean because as I recollect all the fittings inside the unit are push fit

Leaking Aquastream Power shower. No Answers

Q: On removal of the shroud condensation appears everywhere, but constant drip from bottom of valve body. Turn off hot water supply and three days later all is dry and no drips. DoI have a perished "O" ring somewhere in the hot water supply line, and if so do you supply an "O" ring kit for complete refurbishment of these perishing items!?

Thank you in anticipation, John Penfold

It may be a possibility that the on/off knob is slightly out of position. Remove the knob and the cam and make sure the spindle is turned fully clockwise If this stops the drip then replace cam and knob in off position.
A: If this does not fix the problem then it sounds like a faulty cartridge which can be replaced under g`tee.Answered 1259 days ago | Alastair
Squealing Leaking shower 1 Answer

Q: My Shower makes a squealing sound . It doesnt do it all the time and it drips water from the bottom of the wall mounted part after it is switched off for a few minutes

A: Hi

The squealing is probably coming from the bearings in the motor and pump unit, therefore it will need replaced.

The leak is probably coming from the cartridge, which will also need replaced, however you will have to remove the cover to check.

The post 2003 Aquastream is probably the best replacement for all the pre 2003 Aquastream.

The pipe centres are the same although the unit sits a little lower on the wall.

You may have to trim the copper tails that enter the unit and in some cases you may have to drill a hole in the rear case for the wire entry position.
