I am on my 3rd in 8 years Mira ALT shower. Intermittent problems as follow:
Turn power on to shower, push start button, water drips out and after a few seconds all the lights flash.....or this will happen 2-3mins after shower has run correctly for a few mins.
I have tried to re-prime, and have run through the re-set programme but water stops running before this is complete and all the lights will flash.
Another day it will work perfectly!!
There is no difference if I am using other water appliances.
The 3 same showers that have been fitted have all suffered the same problems, plumbed in by qualified plumbers.
Very annoying, so any suggestions please.
It may be because of cold water - the shower stalls until the desired temperature is reached. Good to begin with because the temperature of the water entering will be that of the house - then as the flow continues much colder water enters the shower and needs more power to warm it up.
Your plumber(s) may neglect to explain this - they get much more money if they install a new shower for you.
Does this problem happen only in the winter?
Your statement - There is no difference if I am using other water appliances - is confusing.
I know nothing of showers - I just guess. I think the shower(s) are limiting the flow rate due to the difference between the temperature of water coming in and the temperature required for the heated water going out.
"after a few seconds all the lights flash"
All meaning what, exactly?
There are, according to the manual I found at http://www.mirashowers.co.uk/onlinecatalog/pdf/1073791_w2_b.pdf FOUR lights but pages 23, 24 and 25 of that document suggests there is NO fault indicated by all FOUR lights flashing.
Please clarify or RTFM a bit closer.
