    Any plumbers or DIY men out there-advice needed

    The showerhead in bathroom is dripping.I guess it needs a washer replacing,but where is it.I am fairly reasonable at DIY,but when i remove the shower cover,haven't got a clue where to look.The shower is a triton jade model with a stop/start button and 2 dials for heat and power.Any help appreciated.

    Oh my eyes my eyes :thinking:

    here is the site ]http//ww…tml and this is the advice given ]http//ww…on/
    you should have a book that came with the shower showing the various parts and how they are assembled.
    Also a small plastic wrench to help remove the face of the shower head

    If this is an electric shower, it wont have a washer to change. They use an electrical solenoid to open close the water supply. I suspect you have chalk on the seat of this valve. With the shower head unscrewed try switching the shower cold water on off repeatedly to try and shock the crud from the seat. Other than that its replace the solenoid as they are normally sealed.

    Thanks Mike,this appears to have done the trick.Didn't fancy paying £30+ for the solenoid,so did as you suggested and.....no leak so far.:thumbsup:
