Advice to users
This book contains all the necessary fitting and
operating instructions for your Triton electric
shower. Please read them carefully.
Important: When first installed the
unit will be empty. It is essential the
unit should contain water before the
elements are switched on. It is vital that
the commissioning procedure is followed.
Failure to carry out this operation will
result in damage to the unit and will
invalidate the guarantee.
The shower installation must be carried out by a
suitably qualified person and in the sequence of
this instruction book.
Care taken during the installation will provide a
long, trouble-free life from your shower.

Electrical
Nominal power
rating at 240V
The following points will help you understand
how the shower operates:
Nominal power
rating at 230V
a. The electric heating elements operate at a
constant rate at your chosen power setting.
It is the rate of the water passing through
the heater can which determines the water
temperature. (The slower the flow, the hotter
the water becomes; the faster the flow, the
cooler the water).
8.5kW – (40A MCB rating) 7.9kW – (40A MCB rating)
Water­­­
Inlet connection – 15 mm diameter.
Outlet connection – ½” BSP male thread.
Entry Points
Water – bottom, back or right-hand side entry.
Cable – top or back.
b. During winter the mains water supply will
be cooler than in the summer, so the flow
rate will vary between seasons at any one
temperature setting. At different times of the
year you may have to adjust the position of
the temperature control to maintain your
desired temperature setting.
Materials
Backplate, cover, controls, showerhead – ABS.
Sprayplate – Acetal.
Elements – Minerally insulated corrosion resistant
metal sheathing.
c. The stabiliser valve minimises variations in
shower temperature during mains water
pressure changes. If changes in shower
temperature are experienced during normal
use, it will most likely be caused by the
water pressure falling near to or below the
minimum level. The drop in pressure may
be due to water being drawn off at other
points in the house whilst the shower is in
use. If pressure drops appreciably below
the minimum, the heating elements will
automatically cut out.
Dimensions
Height − 309 mm
Width − 212 mm
Depth − 106 mm
Standards and Approvals
Splashproof rating IPX4.
Complies with the requirements of current British
and European safety standards for household
and similar electrical appliances.
Complies with requirements of the British
Electrotechnical Approvals Board (BEAB).
If ever the water becomes too hot and you
cannot obtain cooler water, first check that
the sprayplate in the showerhead has not
become blocked.
Meets with Compliance with European
Community Directives (CE).
Do not place items such as soap or shampoo
bottles on top of the unit. Liquid could seep
through the joint between the cover and
backplate, and possibly damage the sealing
rubber.
Replacement parts can be ordered from Customer
Service. See ‘spare parts’ for details and part numbers.

Siting of the shower
WARNING!
Important: If installing onto a tiled wall
always mount the unit on the surface of the
tiles. NEVER tile up to the unit.
The shower must not be positioned
where it will be subjected to freezing
conditions.
Refer to fig.6 for the correct siting of the
shower. Position the unit where it will not be in
direct contact with water from the showerhead.
Position the shower unit vertically.
Allow enough room between the ceiling and the
shower to access the cover top screws. Leave
enough space between the left-hand side of the
unit and the wall to allow access to the pressure
relief device (PRD) in the future.
Shower unit

mounted either
side of riser rail
Note: Water regulations require the showerhead
be ‘constrained by a fixed or sliding attachment
so that it can only discharge water at a point
not less than 25 mm above the spill-over level
of the relevant bath, shower tray or other
fixed appliance’. The use of the supplied gel
hanger/hose guide will in most cases meet this
requirement, but if the showerhead can be
placed within a bath, basin or shower tray, then
a double check valve, or similar, must be fitted in
the supply pipework to prevent back-flow.

Fig.6 Diagrammatic view (not to scale)
Do not operate the shower with a damaged or
kinked shower hose, or a blocked showerhead
which can cause the PRD to operate.
Important: The unit must be mounted
on a flat surface which covers the full width
and length of the backplate. It is important
that the wall surface is flat otherwise
difficulty may be encountered when fitting
the cover and subsequent operation of the
unit may be impaired.
When commissioning, the showerhead must
be removed from the flexible hose, while at the
same time the temperature control must be at
the minimum flow position. Failure to follow this
procedure may also cause the PRD to operate.
Make sure the shower is positioned over a bath
or shower tray because if the PRD operates, then
water will eject from the bottom of the unit.
Should this happen, turn off the electricity and
water supplies to the shower at the isolating
switch and stopvalve. Contact Customer Service
for advice on replacing the PRD.

Warning!
Check there are no hidden cables or
pipes before drilling holes for wall
plugs. Use great care when using
power tools near water. The use of
a residual current device (RCD) is
recommended.
Note: The control knob is an integral part of the
cover – do not attempt to remove it.
Lift the cover from the backplate. To access the
pipe and cable connections lift off the trimplate
(fig.7).
Entry positions for the mains water are from the
bottom, rear or side. Cable entry is via the top
or rear.
Note: Deviations from the designated entry
points will invalidate product approvals.
Fig.8
If bottom or side surface entry is required for the
mains cold water, then the necessary opening
will need to be cut out in the trimplate (fig.8)
and cover.
Area to be cut
away for side
entry
If surface cable entry from the top is required
then a small area will need to be cut out in the
backplate (fig.9).
If installing a feed pipe from the rear, bottom
or side the centre of the inlet valve to the wall
surface is 21 mm (fig.10).
Area to be cut away
for bottom entry
Note: If entry is from the rear, the nut of the
compression fitting will be partially behind the
surface of the wall (fig.10). This area must
be left clear when plastering over the pipework
in order to make the nut accessible for future
adjustments.
Area to be
cut away
Important: Always seal around the
incoming pipework to prevent water entering
the wall.
After choosing the site for the shower, use the
backplate as a template and mark the two fixing
holes (fig.11).

WARNING
T100em Care electric shower
warning!
The outlet of the shower acts as a
vent and must not be connected to
anything other than the hose and
showerhead supplied.
Plumbing connections
Plumbing to be carried out before wiring
Do not use jointing compounds on any pipe
fittings for the installation.
Do not solder fittings near the shower unit
as heat can transfer along the pipework and
damage components.
Compression fittings must be used to connect
to the inlet of the shower. (Push-on fittings must
not be used as full engagement cannot be
guaranteed.)
Note: An additional stopvalve (complying with
Water Regulations) must be fitted in the mains
water supply to the shower as an independent
means of isolating the water supply should
maintenance or servicing be necessary.
Important: Before completing the
connection of the water supply to the inlet
of the shower, flush out the pipework to
remove all swarf and system debris. This can
be achieved by connecting a hose to the
pipework and turning on the mains water
supply long enough to clear the debris to
waste.
Procedure
Turn off water supply either at the mains
stopvalve or the isolating stopvalve. Connect the
mains water supply to the inlet of the shower
via 15 mm copper, stainless steel or plastic pipe
using a 15 mm x 15 mm elbow or straight
coupler compression fitting.
Do not use excessive force when making these
connections.
Make sure the backplate is square on the wall
and tighten the two retaining screws which hold
it to the wall.
Turn on the mains water supply and check for
leaks in the pipework connection to the shower.
Note: At this stage no water can flow through
the unit.

Operating the shower
Fig.20
Make sure the commissioning
procedure has been carried out.
When the electricity supply to the shower is
switched on at the isolating switch, the power
indicator will light.
High &
Economy
To start the shower
Press the Start/Stop button and water will begin
to flow.
Cold
Note: The default start up setting is the HIGH
setting.
To stop the shower
Press the Start/Stop button and the phased
shutdown will begin. Water will cease to flow
after a few seconds.
To use the control buttons
Temperature
control
There are two control buttons – high/
economy and cold (fig.20).
The upper button – red symbol is for
switching between the high and economy
power setting.
The high setting allows the highest flow
achievable for your preferred temperature. This
setting should normally be regarded as optimum
shower performance throughout the year.
Start/Stop
button
The economy setting uses less energy when
the ambient mains water temperature is high
during hot months.
Note: When starting the shower, the default
setting is high. The red button alternates
between the two settings: press the button
once to select the Economy setting; press the
button again to reselect High.
Note: In normal use, it is in order to leave the
water supply permanently on to the shower
unit, but as with most electrical appliances,
the unit must be switched off at the
isolating switch when not in use.
Temperature adjustment at this setting is via the
temperature control.
The lower button – blue symbol
is for cold
water only. Adjusting the temperature control
at this setting will only increase or decrease the
flow of the water from the showerhead. (It will
not alter the water temperature.)

T100em Care electric shower
WARNING!
After any servicing of mains water
supply, always flush out the
pipework to remove any debris.
Always make sure the unit is started
on COLD in order to purge any air in
the pipework.
WARNING!
This appliance is not intended for use
by young children or infirm persons
unless they have been adequately
supervised by a responsible person to
W-020-A
ensure that they
can use the appliance
safely.
Young children should be supervised to
ensure that they do not play with the
appliance.
Note: If the stated flow rate required for the
unit cannot be met due to low water pressure,
it will be necessary to operate the unit on the
ECONOMY setting during the warmer months
because of flow rate limitations entering the unit.
To adjust the shower temperature
The water temperature is altered by increasing
or decreasing the flow rate of the water through
the shower via the temperature control (fig.20).
After finding a suitable showering temperature,
the temperature control can be left as the
normal setting and should only need altering
to compensate for seasonal changes in ambient
water temperature.
Note: The preferred position on economy will
give a different temperature to the same position
on high.
To decrease the shower temperature
Turn the temperature control anti-clockwise;
this will increase the flow of water through the
shower.
To increase the shower temperature
Turn the temperature control clockwise; this will
decrease the flow of water through the shower.
Note: It is advisable to be certain that the
showering temperature is satisfactory by testing
with your hand before stepping under the
showerhead. There will always be a time delay of
a few seconds between selecting a flow rate and
the water reaching the stable temperature for
that flow rate.
Caution: This appliance is not intended
for use by persons (including children)
with reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been given
supervision or instruction concerning use of
the appliance by a person responsible for
their safety.
Children should be supervised to ensure that
they do not play with the appliance.

Operating functions
Fig.21
Power on indicator (fig.21)
When the electricity supply to the shower is
switched on at the isolating switch, the power
indicator will light.
Low pressure indicator (fig.21)
If this indicator lights, this means the water
pressure has fallen below the minimum required
for correct operation of the shower, resulting in
the low pressure cut-out operating. This switches
off power to the heating elements preventing any
undue temperature rises. The shower will operate
on the COLD setting until there is adequate
water pressure which automatically restores the
power to the elements.
Low pressure
indicator
Power indicator
Selector mode indicators (fig.22)
Next to each control button there is an indicator
that lights when the button is pressed, indicating
which shower mode is in operation.
On the high setting both indicators next to the
red
button are lit. On the economy setting
the lower indicator only is lit.
Fig.22
Phased shutdown
High setting
indicators
In use, when the Start/Stop button is pressed,
power is switched off to the elements. Water
will continue to flow for a few seconds, flushing
out any remaining hot water. This makes sure
the next immediate user will not receive a slug
of hot water if standing under the showerhead
when starting the shower.
Economy
setting
indicator
Cold setting
indicator
Temperature limiter
During normal operation if an overheat
temperature is sensed, power to the elements
will be reduced. Water will continue to flow.
When the temperature has cooled sufficiently
power to the elements will be automatically
restored to the setting at the time of
interruption.
Safety cut-out
The unit is fitted with a non-resettable thermal cut-out safety device. In the event of abnormal
operation which could cause unsafe temperatures within the unit, the device will disconnect the
heating elements. It will require a visit from a qualified engineer to determine the nature of the fault
and replace the safety device, once the unit has been repaired.
