    Hi

    Our Triton shower tripped the fuse earlier, we reset the switch but now the water only heats up on the higher settings, even then it's just lukewarm

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    You have a failed element in the heat tank.
    Check the elements for resistance with multi meter should be 10-18 ohms.
    One is more likely gone open circuit.
