Shower Valve Repair or Replacement London
It can be annoying when stepping into the shower (especially on a winter's day) and the water temperature fluctuates Hot, cold, tepid and somewhere between all three.

Before dismantling the unit conduct a simple check. With the boiler on, locate the hot water supply to the shower. Feel the pipe, if the pipe temperature is fluctuating between hot/cold it could be a problem with the boiler, as the shower can only deliver what the boiler sends to it. If the water temperature is OK then it’s likely the cartridge needs replacing as it’s the cartridge that controls the temperature inside the shower.
