    Hi

    I have a Aqualisa Aquastream which I understand is about 10 year old which began to leak a few days ago

    I opened up the unit and made a short video

    Any ideas how to stop this leak? Or is a new unit required?

    thanks for you help

    Attached is picture of the shower and video of the leak

    Quite common fault on these.
    Can be a faulty o ring inside the end of the outlet adaptor or sometimes the lungs on the pump which the adaptor fits on to.

    To remove the adaptor you need to slacken of the pump to be able to turn the adaptor to remove it.

    No, that's a seal kit for a thermostatic cartridge, although the big one with the filter would probably fit yours but you can buy that separately, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Aqualisa-...740?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item19f93dbedc

    That's the only separately-available seal for your shower, the other ones come with the parts they fit into (some of which are discontinued). It's difficult to see where the leak is coming from on your video as it appears to have been shot in portrait mode and posted in landscape mode, giving it a very "squashed" look, but it looks like either the hose outlet assembly or the side of the pump
