There is a way of servicing these showers , by purchasing a service kit for them , the only problem is , if the thermostat is scaled up , removing the scale with vinegar/scale remover or similar then this may not solve the problem as the thermostat itself may now be at fault from the long term effects of the scale . best option: replace thermostat if thermostatic if not , replace valve itself
