    Default Electric Shower Problem!

    This has happened twice now... part way through a shower the shower stops! This morning I noticed the 'low flow' light had lit up.
    The water is flowing happily through the taps but the electric shower isn't work.
    When it happened last time I left it and it started working again a while later.
    Does anyone know what this could be?
    Thanks

    Does it have a pump? - Electric showers (rather than power showers) are just mains pressure feed so it sounds like there is some flow problem. Do they get furred up inside eventually? Are you in hard water area and do you have to descale your kettle frequently?

    Dont need to descale kettle. Mine was a Triton box and it started leakeing the once, then got that sorted, then another problem-had it checked and was told it was a water flow problem, then 1 month later the pump went.
    Im pretty certain they all have a pump!
