3.0 SITE REQUIREMENTS
WARNING
3.1 The handwash must not be positioned where it will be subjected to freezing conditions.
3.2 3.3 WATER REQUIREMENTS
The installation must be in accordance with Water Regulations. To ensure activation of the heating elements, the handwash must be connected to a mains water supply with a minimum running pressure of 0.1 MPa (1 bar) and a maximum static pressure of 0.7 MPa (7 bar). If static pressure exceeds 0.7MPa (7bar) fit a pressure reducing valve to avoid damaging the appliance.If in doubt, the pressure should be checked taking account of other services from the same water supply which could cause the pressure to fall below the minimum. The water supply can also be taken from a cold water storage cistern provided there is a minimum head of 10m above the appliance.
If the handwash is operated outside of the stated pressure parameters, it may not be possible to achieve optimum performance from the appliance throughout the year.

IMPORTANT - INSTALLATION TO BE DONE BY A COMPETENT INSTALLER
The installation supply cable and circuit protection must conform to BS 7671.
Before making any sort of electrical connection, ensure that no terminal within the circuit is live. If in any doubt SWITCH OFF the whole installation at the consumer unit.
The handwash must only be connected to a 230-240V ac supply.
The earthing and protective conductor arrangement within the property, in particular the supplementary bonding in the room containing the handwash, must comply with BS 7671.
Ensure that the supply cable and fuse are sufficient for the rated input of your appliance. Please refer to the rating label within the appliance.
For a 3.1kW unit:
A minimum heat resistant cable size of 1.5mm² should be used. The handwash can be connected in two different ways.
1. Via a fused and switched connection unit taken as a spur from a 13amp ring main.
2. As a separate circuit taken directly from a spare way in a consumer unit.
In each case a double pole isolating switch having a contact separation of at least 3mm in each pole, and a minimum rating of 13amp must be incorporated in the wiring of the appliance.

3.11 3.12 To obtain full advantage of the power provided by the handwash, use the shortest cable route possible from the consumer unit to the handwash.
If your consumer unit has a rating below 80A or, if there is no spare fuse way, then the installation will not be straightforward and may require a new consumer unit. A qualified electrician should install the new consumer unit. It may be necessary to contact your electrical supplier to upgrade your supply.
3.13 CAUTION
To enhance electrical safety a 30mA residual current device (RCD) should be installed in all electric handwash circuits. This may be part of the consumer unit or a separate unit. DO NOT use a rewireable fuse, instead use a suitably rated miniature circuit breaker (MCB) or cartridge fuse. The handwash must be connected to its own independent electrical circuit.
