In response to Re: Symmons Temptrol pressure drop
The click you hear is an electric solenoid valve that is designed into the system to reduce flow and save wasteful water residential comsumption in your area. When you quickly switch back and forth, you are placing the electronic relay into overload, which is not a normal condition, but is an electrically overloaded condition, although not terribly severe. Your switchingg back and forth quickly is defeating the normal water saving feature of the Temptrol 76 system.

: We have a Symmons Temptrol 76 system in our shower. When we switch from "tub" to "shower" the water pressure is good, but then there's a "click" and the pressure drops to about half. When we switch back to "tub", the flow out of the bath faucet is low, but then increases. If we repeatedly switch back to "tub" and to "shower" a few times the pressure will stay put and not drop. Is this a normal part of the temperature control feature, or something that can be fixed?
