    I have 2 Mira Sport 9.0kw electric showers. One in bathroom & one in ensuite. The thermostat needs to be turned up by 4-5 clicks warmer in the ensuite shower for the same temp but pressure drops of significantly to the point where it is useless. Both room temps equal.

    Why should there be such a difference?

    Any ideas welcome ?

    Thanks

    is it the case that you can turn the dial behind with the cover off i have had this on other makes. some showers tell you to turn the internal dial with the cover off fully one way then turn knob on front all that way also. then when you put the front on this allows for the hottest shower. if the keyway only goes on one way this is not the problem.

    i think what fireman22 means is the front dial may be "out of line" with the actual switch it controls inside. Take the cover off and turn both the switch inside and the front dial the same way, until they stop, then refit the cover. See if this works.

    Both showers are on mains water, aren't they?

    It sounds like one of the elements has failed in the ensuite shower.
