and Opto Thermo has been designed with individual strengths
and characteristics which together provide a total solution to
the nuances of British plumbing systems.

Opto Gravity
Choose orange for the best shower flow rate on gravity
systems. Opto Digital gravity comes complete with an
integral pump to achieve this. Opto Thermo gravity
is engineered to deliver twice the flow of other
conventional thermostatic shower valves.
Opto Combi
Both Opto Digital and Opto Thermo combi showers
have been specifically designed to work in partnership
with combi systems; whether you go for Digital or
Thermo, you can be sure of a dedicated shower that
delivers a perfect shower all year round.
Opto High Pressure
Designed especially with high pressure systems
in mind, both showers ensure better flow control,
without compromising thermostatic performance.
Aqualisa Opto technologies
Opto Digital standard processor
Opto Digital is based on
our award winning processor
technology tailored to the
needs of the professional
installer. It now offers the
consumer elegantly simple
controls and an economical
shower solution what ever

Opto Thermo uses
our tried and trusted
thermostatic technology.

How Digital works
The Digital processor
A typical Opto exposed installation
Central to Digital showering is the separation of
the valve from the controls
The water is blended and controlled in a
processor box that is sited remotely from the
showering area, for example in the loft, the
airing cupboard or under the bath.
The processor can be located...
In the loft
In the airing cupboard
Under the bath
(exposed variant shown)
(concealed variant shown)
(concealed variant shown)
Hot and cold water flows to the processor and is
perfectly blended before flowing out of the processor
and into the showerhead.
A low voltage data cable connects the controller and
is cleverly concealed within the exposed shower riser
rail or wall, leaving a simple easy to install shower
control

Great Performance
Opto Digital will deliver 12 litres per minute on
gravity and high pressure systems (caveat about combis here)
Three invigorating spray patterns
Whether it’s an early morning wake up call or a
relaxing after work wind-down you’ll be sure to find
one to suit.
Rub clean nozzles
The unique handset has easy rub clean nozzles to
enable simple cleaning and the removal of scale to
optimise flow rates
Simple one touch control
A simple push of the button is all it takes
to get Opto Digital up and running.

Eco setting
A swift turn of the screw driver at the
processor box will reduce the flow rate from
12 litres to an economical 8 litres per minute.

on and then chose from exposed, concealed
or fixed head variants. It’s as easy as that!

Optimised with a twist
Optimising the performance of Opto Digital with your water system
Inside Aqualisa’s processor box
are a number of controls that,
with a simple turn of a screwdriver,
lets you adjust the maximum
temperature of the water (factory
set at 45 degrees C) and change
the mode control setting to suit
the water system it operates on.

Opto Gravity
Opto Combi
Opto High Pressure
The gravity variant comes complete
with an integrated pump to boost
flow rates up to an impressive 12
litres per minute. We all strive to be
careful with our water consumption.
There is an option to switch to an “Eco”
setting that will reduce maximum
flow rates and help minimise water
usage.

with the nuances of combination
boilers in mind. Twist the screw

How Thermo works
Based upon Aqualisa’s renowned, bi-metallic
thermostatic showering technology, each Opto
Thermo shower cartridge – whether gravity, combi
or high pressure – has been especially designed to
ensure maximum optimisation of the water system is
achieved. Easy to install and helpfully colour coded,
Opto Thermo cartridges feature refined, system
specific flow control mechanisms that, amongst
other benefits, are capable of delivering up to twice
the flow on gravity systems, overcome flow and
temperature fluctuations when teamed with combi
systems and that avoid exhausting hot water supplies
on high pressure systems.
The heart of the valve
Opto Thermo cartridges have been redesigned at
their core to ensure the best possible results from
different water systems
Opto Thermo gravity
Delivers unbelievable flow
rates at over 10 litres a minute
from a 1 metre head, typically
twice the flow of many other
manufacturers’ shower systems.
Opto Thermo combi
Offers true thermostatic
performance, optimising boiler
efficiency and giving optimum
performance even in winter.
Opto Thermo high pressure
Controls the flow at the heart
of the valve, giving both
thermostatic control and a great
performance at the handset.
Opto Thermo
Optimised performance
Opto Thermo delivers up to a staggering 10.2 litres
per minute on gravity, and gives optimised flow rates
on combi and high pressure water systems
Rub clean nozzles
The unique handset has easy rub clean nozzles to
enable simple cleaning and the removal of scale to
optimise flow rates
Three invigorating spray patterns
Aqualisa’s optimum handset offers multiple spray
patterns to suit your mood.
System specific cartridge inside
By choosing the cartridge that best suits the water
system you can be sure that the thermostatic
performance is never compromised.
