The Shower Doctor Fault Finder

The Shower Doctor has prepared a few short guides to help you identify some of the more common faults with your shower. By choosing your shower type and then comparing our list of fault symptoms against yours, you should be able to identify the problem. Visit our Shower Glossary section if you need more information on the shower type/part you have trouble with.

Electric Shower

Electric showers heat the water inside and are usually connected directly to the mains water and electricity supply. They range from 7.5kW to 10.8kW in power.

Mixer Shower

Mixer showers blend hot and cold water. There are two main types of mixer showers: manual valves and thermostatically controlled mixing valves.

Power Shower

Power showers have a blending valve (manual or thermostatic) and a small pump housed in the same case.
