Water temperature and leaking pipe
This question is regarding
Triton T100si electric Shower Spares
Why is the water temperature lukewarm even when turned up the maximum.
Also the water pressure is really low (compared to the taps etc. In the house) and a string of water leaks from the shower pipe attached to the machine.
Please help! I don't understand how showers work!

You may have two problems.
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.www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzPt1hsfVq4
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. www.showerdoc.com/installation/electrical-products/SKYTRO-600-005-Digital-Multi-Tester
I think the Pressure Relief Device (PRD) may have blown.
It’s a safety device on the bottom of the heating tank.
It is fairly easy to replace however there is usually something that causes it to blow, often a kink in the hose or the showerhead is blocked, so check this before fitting the new PRD. www.youtube.com/watch?v=lX0U53Ja_W0
