Plumbing Question

My shower was running normally when suddenly the water just stopped completely. believe this could be the solenoid valve.

The shower is 10 years old and we are replacing bathroom in a few years is it more cost effective long term to try and get it fixed or just buy a new one? Thanks Debi.

Thanks but have now decided to get a new shower fitted sorry to waste your time.

Hi Debbie you are very close to right the thermostatic valve operates like a old style carborater in a car so that it opens and closes to control the hot water there fore keeping it somewhat balanced and limits surges, it is a fairly expensive item to replace when you concidor labour it is more cost effective for you in my opinion to by the one you would like for down the road when you do your bathroom and have it installed now, hope that helps you to decide....kevin
