I have recently moved to a new house and the existing electric shower
has a pipe that appears to have some sort of overflow pipe coming from
the power box. This now has water coming through it and connects to
nothing so has caused a leak in the ceiling. However I have directed
it to an over flow pipe so that for the mean time it pours outside if
the shower is in use. I could direct it into the main hot water tank,
but is this OK to do so? Is it mean't to have water coming out
everytime the shower is in use? Is there a proper way to deal with the
water other than the above.
The shower is a Triton T200RE that has a flush fitting control panel
and a separate power box fitted within the roof space.

There is a Shower Doctor section .
Could it be the Pressure Relief Device has been activated ???
"If water is leaking from a clear plastic tube at the bottom of the unit,
then the Pressure Relief Device (PRD) has been activated. A replacement
can be ordered from the Triton Spares department (024 76372222). "

This shower unit is like no other I have seen. The control unit is
electronic low voltage fitted flush to the wall, the heater unit is remote.
When I bought mine it was 200 pounds while a standard one was about 50 quid
upwards. Mine has been in very regular use (at least an hour a day) for
twenty years, the only breakdown was the prd after about ten years, the
shower hose also failed . I have remade some of the electrical connections
on the heater unit. It has never even had the shower head descaled as I
run a water softener. Overall I would say it is a very good shower unit,
but the design is such that a replacement equivalent would be difficult, I
I have one of these and when the PRD failed water came out as you describe.
It is like a metal flying saucer with a diaphragm in it.
I rang triton and a new one came very quickly and was quite easy to fit.
