How To – Change a pressure relief device

Welcome to shower spares TV so today  we’re going to talk about electric  showers and why they may leak internally  but before we do any of that we  obviously need to make sure that the  electricity is isolated you should have  in your bathroom a pool called switch to  isolate the shower,

But this does not make it safe you still need to go to your fuse board and turn off the fuse it  should be a separate fuse before you  attempt to even take off the cover this  show so now you’ve isolated the  electricity and everything you’ve made sure everything is safe to work on remove the cover of the shower and the most common cause of the shower leaking  internally is what we call a pressure relief device this on this particular  shower it’s situated on the outlet pipe down here and secured with two screws  water would come out of this section  here and it blows a little rubber ball  right because the pressure is built up  in the tank couldn’t get out of  the handset quick enough and it’s  released the pressure through there so we’re going to replace.

the PRD I’ve also  isolated the mains water to this shower  just to be on the safe side so like I  said it’s held in by two Phillips screws  so remove the PRD these are available  from sharpers comm on the link below and  then now we need to get the new PID and  replace it this is the new PR D it comes  with an o-ring place the o-ring inside  the outlet pipe fit the PRD just a  little bit of force required to push it  in and then attach it with the two  screws so that’s the PRD replaced in  this shower now but don’t forget there’s  a reason why that PRD is activated in  the first place which takes me back to  one of the main reasons is a block to  shower handset or a kinked hose if your  shower handset block don’t forget you  can get a disc Aylor  to soak the handset in  we sell out on shoppers calm.

DIY Hot shower – Immersion heater

Hi today I’m going to show you my DIY  hot water shower it uses a 2.5 gallon  water container with some flexible holes  for the actual showerhead and inside is  a 400 percent conversion heats up now  this is just going to be a quick  overview video and if people like you I  can do a follow up video witness details  here you can see the wiring for the  immersion heater I have a circuit  breaker here which turns the heat on and  off comes along here over here up here  then into the shower  here’s a quick demo of the water heater  yeah actually gets water so hot so  quickly that it starts to steam up the  camera lens so the first step is to turn  on the faucet which will fill this up  into where overflows  once water flows you know they talk to  the top I also have this stick in which  is mine into certain points in this we  know how much water is left inside here  obviously my teaching moment this is  good.

So my immersion beaten so what I have to  do now is turn that on for four minutes  this is a 2.5 gallon poutine it takes  three or four minutes to get to a really  hot night shell  one thing I did add is this little and  stirring stick just made of plastic  because as the Rooter gets hotter the  hot water rises to the top one whole  bunch of stuff in the bottom so I just  highly dislike a mix you have different  programs with my hand in there after the  four minutes has passed and I turn off  the breaker switch I’m ready to show and  you just start and stop it by removing  this  that’s nice Hawkinson Jules stop it  this one like this you just have shown  us so you shampoo them from the pen and  ink to new again  DS incubator you can tell how long we’ve  got left based on this water pipe  regionals Mattamy lowers as you ER MDR  water so I hope you enjoyed video please  remember to give a thumbs up and  subscribe.
