Shower Repairs

Are Shower Repairs A Rip Off ? 

If you have a concealed mixer valve ( built into the wall ) then you are at the mercy of the manufacturers repair agent, that is if you know what brand you have fitted. When they go wrong you have little choice in getting it repaired if at all. We would not waste our time trying to identify the make of shower or trying to track down any part - the final bill would be astronomical. Best option NOT to have a concealed or built into the wall because if you do have to change it consider all the alterations required to tiles and pipes.

We can replace a built in the wall shower valves (BIVS) when using a shower wall panel

Replace Mixer Shower >

Case Example : A customer called complaining their Mira 88 concealed shower was leaking from behind the faceplate - asking further questions revealed that Mira was not prepared to service the valve because the customer recently had a combi boiler fitted - increasing the pressure on the GRAVITY FEED mixer valve creating the leak - You have to be aware of the consequences when making change of any kind ! So the upshot is they needed the valve dug out the wall to replace the valve with an high pressure valve.
Thinking of installing a new mixing valve ? Be sensible and opt for a surface mounted bar or mixer valve - easier to repair far easier to replace. We install bar showers and mixers from scratch - surface mounted chrome pipe work or concealed pipes - Get in touch for a quote.

Triton for example will want £150 - £200 Seriously ! Bear in mind another part may fail soon after - too late you have already fallen into the trap. Take a look at their customer reviews it does not make good reading. Triton showers used to last 10 ~ 15 years but they like most other manufacturers have realised the fact a returning customer every 2 - 4 years is far more profitable !  

Mira quotes a minimum service call £199 for a repair.

Don’t really see the point in replacing a gearbox on a 15 year old car seeing the repair cost is more than the value as a whole.
