The water is heated up separately . The shower is power shower only to create pressure not to heat the water , Thx

What is the white button? is it on the pump? could be a reset button, if yes the your pump has a fault, time to consult a Plumber or Electrician, post your location a Member may be able to help you out.

The white button stands on its own next to the covered electric boxes.

Assuming you have the digital pump in the loft, some of those were a faulty batch and are replaced free of charge if you have a service contract. Mine behaved just like yours, and the man came out, Chris from Aqualisa, top bloke btw, and interrogated it on his laptop, saw it had over 1000 restarts or something, and just fitted a new pump and all was well.
If you have the push button in the shower with a blue ring led round it, is this dim? If so, it's worth taking the button assembly apart and cleaning it and the contacts on the push-fit cable connector. If the led is brighter thereafter and the shower works ok, that's a simple fix.

HI, It is an old shower so not covered by Aqualisa any more at all. PLs see pics taken in the loft. On and off push button switch in the shower itself lits up works ok . THanks

OK, the white switch in the loft is the isolator for the pump. Mine was in the bedroom next to the shower room. Switching it on and off cleared the problem for a short while. I think your pump is faulty, frankly...

Have spoken to Aqua Lisa in the past about an intermittent problem, they actually told me to turn the unit off completely for 30-40 mins which has worked for me previously on 2 occasions.

Hi, How long did your shower work after you have turned it off for 40 minutes please? thanks

Not personally my shower, but both incidents were to do with the controls within the shower not working.

Haven't heard anything back from either client so assume all is well!

For a shower? What complex calculations does this microprocessor system need to do exactly?
