Customer Question

hi, we have an Ivory II Triton shower and have a couple of problems when using it: sometimes it just wouldn't work- esp during the day.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: and 2 -it work in a strange way: you have hot water for a couple of minutes then it gets cold and a minute later you have extra hot water (after a minute or two) back to baerable temperature, is THAT normal? sorry the second ne is the most annoying
JA: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?
Customer: well, it's like that for quite a while. I'm renting the place and the owner insists that it's like this and the previous tenants were happy with it.... and it basicly how the Triton shower work
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: no, I plan on asking the owner do the work. But , as I said before he just insists there is no problem
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: well, I am so far away from plumbing that there might be things I am skipping and which might be significant for you, so... that's it for now

If this is the electric shower and it is having trouble maintaining the temperature then it probably needs a new thermostat or it is scaled internally
