INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing a quality Mira product. To enjoy the full potential of your
new product, please take time to read this guide thoroughly. Having done so, keep
it handy for future reference.
The Mira Escape Thermostatic is an electric shower with separate controls for power
selection and temperature/flow adjustment. A unique thermostatic valve stabilises
temperature changes caused by water pressure fluctuations. These can result from
taps being turned on or off, or toilets being flushed. Individual lights indicate “ON/
OFF” and “LOW FLOW”.
The Mira Escape comes complete with Mira Energise adjustable spray handset
with four different spray actions (start, soothe, force and eco*), flexible hose, clamp
bracket assembly, slide bar, supports, hose retaining ring and soap dish.
* On electric showers the ‘eco’ setting will have no effect, and will give the same
spray action as the ‘start’ setting.

2. Do not install the product in a position in which service access is limited.
3. Decide on a suitable position for the shower (minimum distance of 200 mm from
the ceiling to allow for cover fit and removal).
4. The position of the shower and shower fittings must provide a minimum gap of
25 mm between the showerhead and the spill over level of any bath, shower
tray or basin and a minimum gap of 30 mm between the showerhead and the
spill over level of any toilet, bidet or other appliance with a Fluid Category 5
backflow risk (see diagram on page 8).
5. The shower is suitable for installation within the shower area and is fitted with
a pressure relief valve. It must be positioned over a water catchment area with
the controls at a convenient height for the user.
6. The shower must be fitted to a waterproof flat and even wall surface.
7. DO NOT fit the shower to the wall and tile up to the case.
8. DO NOT seal the gap between the shower and the wall surface.
9. The showerhead should be positioned so that it discharges down the centre
line of the bath or across the opening of a shower cubicle.
10. The showerhead must be directed away from the shower unit, during normal
use the showerhead must not spray directly on to the shower unit.
11. DO NOT apply excessive force to plumbing connections; always provide
mechanical support when making plumbing connections. Any soldered joints
should be made before connecting the shower.
12. This shower is not designed to be plumbed directly from the rear. For rear-entry
supply, add an elbow to the supply pipe and connect as a rising or a falling supply.
13. If pipework and/or electrical cables enter the shower from the rear through a
hole in the wall provision must be made to prevent water ingress back into the

Thermostatic (Temperature-Stable)
The shower's top priority is to keep the desired water temperature constant. Electric
showers with thermostatic control are able to keep a stable temperature across the
range from hot to cold, whilst also dealing with fluctuations in electrical and water
supplies. As a result, there is a temperature limit the shower cannot go beyond. For
safety, this temperature is factory set and cannot be adjusted to make the shower
hotter or colder.
