How the shower works
b) Locating the base unit
The shower is a remote controlled mixer shower incorporating a booster pump. (On the non pumped
model the booster pump is replaced by a motorised flow regulator valve). It is controlled by a remote
control unit that is installed in a shower cubicle along with the shower accessories.
Switch on and running
• The remote control is used to switch the base unit on and control the temperature and flow rate.
• The remote control and base unit send the instructions to each other using radio frequency signals
with a maximum range of about 10 metres.
DO NOT install the base unit in the bathroom or shower cubicle area.
DO NOT install the base unit upside down (i.e. secured to a ceiling)
• In general the base unit can be installed above the shower cubicle in the loft or adjacent to it in an
airing cupboard. (Or other suitable location within 10m of the shower area)
• The unit can be mounted horizontally (“on its back”), or vertically.
• When mounting vertically, the connection pipes MUST be pointing down.
Pumped model and remote control (3 preset version shown)
• Ensure that the location is not subject to freezing or excessive moisture.
c) Fitting and Plumbing
Mark up and fix
• Decide where to mount the base unit ensuring :
- There is adequate clearance for access around the base unit, including connection of the hot
and cold and shower delivery pipes.
- The distance between the base unit and the shower cubicle is less than 10m.
- There are no metal coated ceiling panels or metal partitions between the base and the shower.
(Metal panels etc. can block the remote control signals and so stop the unit working correctly)
• Mark the four locating points for the base and then secure using the screw pack provided.
Important : In all cases, the unit must be mounted using the rubber
feet and spacers supplied. Some surfaces, such as hollow walls, may
require a different screw and plug type (not supplied)
Mounting feet, spacer and screws
Non Pumped model
• Once the base unit is fixed in position the plumbing connections can
be attached.
Plumbing – General
• Connections are made to the unit using
15mm straight or elbow couplers (Push
fit or compression). The cold and hot
water connections should include service
valves for ease of maintenance.
(Filtered isolation valve available as an
ancillary – See Page 19)
___Cold and hot inlets, and outlet (mixed)
___connections.
• The cold and hot water supplies must be flushed through prior to making the connections to the
base unit, to remove all particles from the pipe work and help with priming during commissioning.

Maintenance
Important installation notes :
• Avoid potential air traps in the pipe runs
• For loft installations ensure that there is no risk of freezing of the pipes and the unit, but do not
cover the base unit with loft insulation.
• The hot water supply to the base mixer unit must be set between 50°C - 65°C.
Low pressure (Gravity fed) systems (Pumped Model only)
Warning: Unit MUST NOT be connected to the mains water supply
(The cold and hot water MUST come from a gravity fed supply using the same header tank)
IMPORTANT: Hot water draw off connection MUST point down (as shown)
(Failure to do this may cause air to build up in the Hot pipe and stop the base unit working correctly)
•
The cold and hot water pipes to the
base unit (Pumped Model only)
MUST come from a gravity fed
(header tank) supply providing equal
pressures.
a) Cleaning the remote control and descaling the shower handset
While cleaning, isolate the power supply to the base unit.
• Clean the shower remote control using a soft cloth and avoid using abrasive or solvent based
cleaning fluid, especially on any plated finishes.
Warning : Never immerse the remote control in any liquid
Regularly inspect the hose for wear and damage. Replace if necessary, or every
two years, with an approved part.
To maintain performance, the shower handset
must be cleaned regularly.
• Clean the shower handset spray by rubbing the nozzles (a).
• Alternatively soak the shower spray handset in a proprietary
lime scale remover (b). (Rinse thoroughly after cleaning).
b) Cleaning the base unit inlet filters
If the flow rate is lower than normal, then the inlet filters may need to be cleaned.
(Separate filtered isolation valve available as an ancillary – See Page 19)
Diagram of gravity fed system
While removing and cleaning the inlet filters, isolate the power supply to the base unit.
• Turn off the cold water and hot water supply to the base unit.
• Remove the cold and hot water connections at the union with the base unit and carefully remove
the filters (as shown).

• Before the unit can function correctly the air must be bled from the base unit and associated pipes
• To bleed the air from the Pumped base unit :
- Make sure the cold and hot delivery pipes are primed prior to connection. (See above)
- Make sure the power to the base unit has been on for LESS than 5 minutes.
Remotes with 2 program buttons
Remotes with 3 program buttons

- The automatic bleed process takes 2 minutes to complete. During this time the internal pump
will switch on twice for about 10 seconds and water should come out of the shower handset.
- If water does not flow from the shower at the end of the bleed process, then press the program
buttons again, as shown, for 3 seconds.
- After 2 minutes the unit automatically switches off.
Once started, the bleed process can be stopped at any time by pressing the Start / Stop button.
• To bleed the air from the Non Pumped base unit :
- Make sure the cold and hot delivery pipes are primed prior to connection. (See above)
- Make sure the power to the base unit has been on for LESS than 5 minutes.
- Press the Start / Stop button. This will switch the unit on and also bleed any trapped air
Notes :
a) Pressing the two Program buttons is used to bleed the air from a Pumped unit. On a Non
Pumped unit these two buttons will have no effect. (Use the Start / Stop button instead).
b) The bleed process must be started in the first 5 minutes of switching on the power to the base
unit. Switch the power off and on again if it has been on for more than 5 minutes.
Synchronise the remote control to the base unit
The remote control leaves the factory “unsynchronised”. It
automatically synchronises to its base unit when the buttons are
pressed to bleed out the air (see above).
If the buttons have no effect then the remote control can be reset and
“resynchronised” to the base as follows.
• Turn off the power supply to the base unit.
• Remove batteries from the remote and then put them back
again
• Leave the battery cover off
• Press the start button and then turn the remote over and press the “Reset” button (use a biro or
similar) for at least 3 seconds. (The remote will automatically switch off after 10 s. If the Reset
has not been done in this time, then press the Start button again).
• The remote will give a series of long and short bleeps to acknowledge the reset.
• Replace the battery cover, including the fixing screws.
• Switch on the power supply to the base unit and carry out the bleed process as described above.
DIP 1 : Automatic switch off
(The shower will automatically switch off if no buttons are pressed for a pre-set time)
Use DIP switch 1 to set how long before the shower automatically switches off
ON = 20 minutes
OFF = 10 minutes
DIP 2 : Restrict range of adjustment of Temperature buttons
(The temperature can be restricted to a range that is suitable for less abled users)
Use DIP switch 2 to set a restriction on the temperature adjustment range
ON = Temperature can be fully adjusted between L (approx 25°C) and H (approx 46°C)
OFF = Temperature adjustment is restricted between 1 (approx 34°C) and 5 (approx 40°C)
DIP 3 : Stop the water flow being adjusted to maximum setting
(Flow can be limited to about half its maximum setting, used for saving water and energy)
Use DIP switch 3 to stop the flow buttons from adjustment to its maximum value.
ON = Full flow adjustment, minimum to maximum (approx 6 to 12 litres per minute)
OFF = Flow cannot be adjusted above about 7 litres a minute.
DIP 4 : Fix the flow rate (no flow adjustment possible)
(The flow rate can be fixed with the flow buttons unable to adjust the flow)
This switch MUST be set to Off when the plumbing scheme uses a combi boiler (See Page 7)
Use DIP switch 4 to fix the flow rate to about ¾ of maximum (approx 9 litres per minute).
ON = Full flow adjustment (approx 6 to 12 litres per minute) (Unless DIP 3 is set to OFF)
OFF = Flow rate is always set to about ¾ of maximum (and DIP 3 is automatically disabled)
Adjusting the remote control
Inside the battery compartment are 4 small “DIP”
switches that are used to set various features on the
shower. Use these DIP switches to set the following
features on the shower.
