Galaxy 3000 shower 2005

Have above aqua3000 10.5 kW Works reliably & smoothly , but needs to be turned up to 8/9 to give a really hot shower with reduced flow . I guess this is one of the elements down , but before I order an element assembly would appreciate reassurance of this . Also is the element unit easy to remove/refit to the can without getting leaks? Thanks Paul

It may be a faulty element in the heating tank (there are two, three in most 10kw showers) you can check them with a multi meter you should have a reading of around 12>18 ohms.

If you have power to the elements and no heat it's probably the elements, no power to the elements then it's probably a micro switch.

If you don’t have a multimeter we sell them at £10 each with a guide on how to use them for checking and testing the various parts of your shower.


Apart from helping to fix your shower, they are really useful for checking you have a power supply to appliances, for checking fuses, letting you know much power you have left in batteries

(so you know if they are dud or not) and lots of other jobs, in short they are well worth the £10.

I am often asked “Is this a DIY job” to be honest I can’t answer that, because without knowing someone, it isn’t possible to assess their skills?

I should say that most jobs on showers although relatively easy (from my point of view) can be fiddly and an extra pair of hands, long thin fingers and the strength in your hands of an all in wrestler are a help!

The secret is, observing very carefully when things are taken to bits, their order and orientation, taking notes and/or photos as you go can also be a help.

When you are working with electricity and water so make sure it is switched off and turned off before you start.

If you think you can do the job but aren’t just that confident, it may help to buy the part and compare it to the faulty part, you will then be able to see where the screws, wires, nuts, or washers etc. go, if then you think it is to complicated, at least you will have the part when the plumber or electrician arrives.

We will always be here to offer help and advice if you run into a problem, however it is not the same as being on site where we can get the overhaul picture, if you are still not sure, now is the time to call in a professional.
