Question about Maax Brio II One-Piece Neo-Angle Corner Shower with MAAX IES 1/2 System - 1

2 Answers

How to remove the shower valve on my Maax shower? It is leaking badly, and I think I just need to get to the valve that directs water to either shower head, or back sprayer nozzles or the whole body

I think the problem is in the valve, not the shower head, since back massagers also are leaking. I read that it is probably some ring or valve behind the handle that both turns water on and directs water to one of the three water delivery mechanisms. Gray plastic plug looking thing in center of handle, I suspect hiding the screw to remove handle to get to leaky ring. I am afraid to destroy the plastic handle plug for fear my theory is not right, and then husband will scold me for doing that! Tired of waiting for him to fix it (been 6 months!), and I think I can do this. :) Any advice?

Maax is the shower surround. The valve has internal parts that are bad and that will be another name.

Its probbably the hose connected to the valve, try screwing it back on and turn the water up slowly, if that does not help, check your local radio shack

There will be a nailing flange on the walls of your shower. Typically, drywall screws are used on this flange on the top portion and along outside edges spaced 6-8" apart. Use a high quality tub/shower caulk down the seams.

Hello. You're not going to believe this, but MAXX says that the drain and the wall pannels (glued) will keep it in place if the floor is properly leveled before. Personally, when I installed mine (model 105525 - exactly the same installation instructions) I used silicone on the base at each stud area. it's secure, but not permanent, and won't allow an area for a crack to form.

Hope this helps.

Hot water pressure very low in maax shower any suggestions to correct?


Assuming that the flow control is not defective, your water heater may be limed shut.
Heating water (especially 'hard' water) causes calcium to precipitate out and build up in the bottom of the tank which can cause poor recovery and if heavy enough, reduced flow.

Check yours and you should find a drain located near the bottom of it.
Attaching a garden hose to this and opening the provided valve will allow you to flush out the loose lime.
You should turn off the AC or gas supply before doing this to stop the heater from trying to reheat while you are emptying it.

Good luck-

Leaking Neo-Round shower stall???


Check really close to make sure there is not a small crack in the base. Many times they can barely be seen and when you stand in the shower they open up larger allowing water to leak out. You may have to have someone else stand inside while you look for the crack.

We have had our shower for 5 years now and it continues to leak at the bottom corners. we have the corner shower stall against a tile wall. I have replaced caulking several times even removing stiles...


You need the base taking out and installing properly.

If must be on a firm surface with no movement up, down, backwards or forwards. The best way is to glue it with a bed of expanded polystyrene so it can't move. Then you need a tile to shower edge filler which overlaps the base. Fill the gap with silicone, between the base and shower and when it is dry, put the edging piece on bedded into silicone. Then tile over the upper part of the edging.

I have a wireless Grohe shower that keeps dripping hot water constantly


Your mixing valve(faucet) has a bad valve and is allowing the hot water to bypass and leak thru shower. You should replace the bad mixing valve or the faucet to repair and stop the leak.

I a leak under my tub, think it's from the shower, it doesn't leak with a full tub of water or ewhen you empty the tub, but when you're in the shower a flow of water comes out under the shower piping side...


Check out the faucet plate mounted on tub side for a good seal. Water can leak down this plate causing it to look like the valve is leaking.
When you are in the shower it splash's water against the valve and water will run down behind it. Check the tub spout and if you have tile check the chaulked joint where tub and wall meet.

Cold water and jets don't work


Likely your mixer valve cartridge has a blown o-ring.
Replace the cartridge.
Jets not working may be as simple as the GFI outlet being tripped.
