    How old is the shower, have the covers been removed recently?

    You got a faulty solenoid valve assembly or control valve depending on model & age of shower.

    Have no idea how old is that thing, but older than 4 years, which I live in this flat. And nothing was removed or changed recently. Couple a days ago after shower I noticed, that even thou shower is turned off, water still coming.

    When you turn it off does the pump stop and water keep flowing ?

    Yes just buy the part and fit.
    But if you going to get someone to fit it get a plumber or someone who knows about showers.
    See many that have been attempted to be fixed by clueless plumbers/handyman and been a total c*ckup.

    This is a easy fix by the right person.
