Bar Mixer Shower
INTRODUCTION
Water temperature requirements
This book contains all the necessary fitting and
operating instructions for your mixer shower.
Please read them carefully and read through
the whole of this book before beginning your
installation.
Recommended maximum:
= 65°C
Minimum hot water temperature:
= 55°C
Maximum cold water temperature: = 25°C
NOTE: Valves operating outside these conditions
cannot be guaranteed by the Scheme to operate
as Type 2 valves.
The shower installation must be carried out by
a suitably competent person and in sequence of
this instruction book.
A stored water temperature of 60°C is
considered sufficient to meet all normal
requirements and will minimise the effects of
scale in hard water areas.
Care taken during the installation will give a long
and trouble free life from your mixer shower.
SITE REQUIREMENTS
Water temperature adjustment and
thermal safety
The installation must be in accordance with
water supply (water fittings) regulation 1999
and/or local Bylaws.
The mixed water temperature can be adjusted
from cold through to a top limit which must
be preset during installation with full anti-scald
protection throughout the range (35°C to 40°C)
providing the hot water temperature at the inlet
remains 10°C above the outlet temperature.
Water pressure requirements
Running water pressure:
Low pressure*
- 0.1 bar min.
Should there be a loss of flow to either incoming
supply then- water from the shower will stop or
be reduced until both supplies are restored.
1.0 bar max.
High pressure
- 0.5 bar min.
5.0 bar max.
SAFETY WARNINGS
Maximum static water pressure:
Low & High pressure
- 10 bar
a. DO NOT choose a position where the shower
could become frozen.
*This mixer shower is designed for high pressure
systems found in the UK, but can be installed
with low pressure gravity water systems with
reduced flow rates.
b. DO NOT connect this mixer shower to any
form of tap or fitting not recommended by
the manufacturer.
For effective operation of the internal seals, the
maximum static pressure must not be exceeded.
c. DO NOT allow the inlet pressure or flow
rates to operate outside the guidelines laid
out in ‘site requirements’.
Pressure reducing valve
d. DO NOT connect the mixer shower to a
gravity hot supply and a mains cold supply
(or vice versa).
On sites where the running pressure is above 5
bar, the use of a suitably sized pressure reducing
valve fitted in the cold mains supply pipe work
can provide nominally equal pressures at the
mixer shower.
Water minimum flow rate
For best performance within the specified running
pressure range a minimum flow of 8 litres per
minute should be available to both inlets.

Bar Mixer Shower
PLUMBING REQUIREMENTS
Hard water areas
DO NOT use jointing compounds on any pipe
fittings for the installation,
a. If it is intended to operate the shower
in areas of hard water (above 200-ppm
temporary hardness), a scale inhibitor may
have to be fitted. For advice on the scale
inhibitor, please contact Customer Service.
DO NOT solder fittings near the mixer unit
as heat can transfer along the pipework and
damage the mixer valve.
b. For best performance the showerhead MUST be
regularly cleaned to remove scale and debris.
DO NOT subject the unit to a water temperature
above 80°C during installation, use, maintenance
or disinfection.
WATER SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
IMPORTANT:
This mixer shower is suitable for:
• The layout and sizing of pipework MUST
be such that nominally equal inlet supply
pressures are achieved and the effects of
other draw-offs are minimised.
• Gravity water systems
• Pumped gravity systems.
• Fully modulating type combination boilers
• The pipe-work should be installed such
that other taps and appliances being
operated elsewhere on the premises do not
significantly affect the flow
• Multi-point hot water heaters.
• Thermal storage,
• Unvented systems
• When connecting pipe-work avoid using
tight 90° elbows; swept or formed bends will
give the best performance.
When installing this mixer with a Combination or
multi-point boiler, it may be necessary to install
flow regulation.
• The hot water pipe entry MUST be made to
the left-hand side inlet, marked HOT, ‘H’ or
with a red/orange label.
Check that the appliance is capable of delivering
hot water at a minimum switch-on flow rate
of 3 litres per minute. At flow rates between 3
and 8 litres per minute, the appliance MUST be
capable of raising the water temperature to 52°C
(minimum).
• Suitable isolating valves (complying with
Water Regulations and Bylaws) MUST be
fitted on the hot and cold water supplies
to the shower as an independent means
of isolating the water supplies should
maintenance or servicing be necessary.
Water temperature at the inlet of the mixer valve
MUST remain relatively constant when flow rate
adjustments are made (refer to the applianceoperating manual to confirm compatibility with
this mixer shower).
• It is preferable to flush the pipe-work to clear
the system of debris and check for leaks
before connecting to the mixer.
(Commercial applications)
Where thermal store systems and instantaneous
gas water heaters are used, if excessive drawoff take place the appliance may not be able to
maintain an adequate output temperature.
This could result in the shower temperature
becoming noticeably cooler.
• It is recommended that for all commercial
applications, easily accessible, in-line filters
are used to aid maintenance.
Flow regulators can be fitted with high-pressure
water systems to reduce flow rate and assist
economy.
• The mixer inlets contain removable filters
that may become blocked if debris is not
flushed through before fitting.
The hot supply temperature MUST remain a
minimum of 10°C hotter than the required blend
temperature for optimum performance.

*(diagrammatic view – not to scale)
PREPARING THE MIXER VALVE
Check the contents to make sure all items are
present.
Before starting, make sure all of the openings on
the valve are carefully covered to stop ingress
of any debris, etc. while routing the supply
pipework.
The shower valve is suitable for exposed
installation onto:
• Solid wall
• Stud partition wall
• Dry lined wall
• Laminate cubicle or panel.
Showerhead can
be mounted
either side of the
mixer
Height of
showerhead
to suit user’s
requirements
SITING OF THE SHOWER & ACCESSORIES
Refer to (fig.7) for correct siting of the shower.
The mixer valve should be positioned, as
detailed, with all controls within comfortable
reach of the user.
The accessories (showerhead, riser rail and/or
fixed showerhead) can be positioned above or to
either side of the shower.
The valve must be installed in a position that
allows for easy access for future maintenance and
commissioning.
*IMPORTANT!
• Complete the pipework to the shower area
having decided on the position of the shower
and direction of pipe entry (for example
rising, falling or rear entry)
BEFORE FIXING the supply pipework within
the wall, refer to the ‘SUPPLY PIPE WORK’
and ‘VARIABLE FITTINGS’ sections.
See figures 8, 9 and 10 to ensure
the MINIMUM of 7mm of thread is
available once the cover trims are fitted.
The hot and cold water pipes should be securely
attached within the wall or panel to support the
valve and prevent movement after installation.
THIS IS REQUIRED TO ALLOW THE
CORRECT FITTING OF THE MIXER VALVE.
*SUPPLY PIPE WORK
Pipe fitting depth should be checked in
conjunction with the information given in
(fig.8) - a MINIMUM of 7mm of thread
MUST be available once the Variable Fitting is
secured into the wall end fitting and the cover
trim has been fitted. This is to allow the mixer to
be fitted correctly. Inlet pipe centres should be
approximately 150mm apart.
7
Bar Mixer Shower
*VARIABLE FITTINGS
Fig.8
The supply pipes can be routed from the side,
rising, rear or falling and must end in suitable
fittings (fig.8) to accept the variable connectors.
The variable connectors can be used to connect
to ½” BSP female elbow fittings in solid wall
installations. The inlet centres on the variable
connectors have a degree of adjustment to allow
for misalignment of pipe work.
Appropriate
end fitting
The hot and cold supply pipes MUST be
anchored rigidly to support the valve and stop
any movement after installation.
Once the trim
is fitted, there
MUST be a
minimum of
7mm of thread
to allow the
mixer to be
fitted correctly.

the variable connector where it enters the wall to
stop water ingress (fig.9).
• Screw the supplied cover trims onto the
fittings until tight to the wall (fig.10).
FITTING THE MIXER
IMPORTANT: Make sure that all supply pipework
has been flushed through before fitting the mixer.
• Offer the shower valve up to the fittings.
• Check that the sealing washers are in place.
• Screw the unions onto the fittings.
• Fit the mixer controls and carry out the
commissioning procedure.
LEAK TESTING THE MIXER
IMPORTANT: Flush out the pipework in
accordance with Water Regulations and Bylaws.
• Fit the hose to the outlet (without the
showerhead fitted) and direct it towards the
waste outlet.
• Open the water isolating valves to the
shower and check for leaks.
• If any leaks are found, rectify them before
carrying out the commissioning procedure.

TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT RANGE
The mixer has a temperature stop to prevent
accidental rotation to higher temperatures. This
is adjustable to provide a maximum temperature
of 35°C – 45°C.
The mixed water temperature can be adjusted
from cold through to a top limit (which can
be pre-set during installation – factory set
at approximately 38°C) with full anti-scald
protection throughout the range.
Recommended outlet temperatures
Fig.13
The BuildCert TMV scheme recommends the
following set maximum mixed water outlet
temperatures for use in all premises:
44°C - for bath fill but see notes below.
Temperature
spindle
41°C - for showers.
41°C - for washbasins.
38°C - for bidets.
The mixed water temperatures must never
exceed 46°C at terminal fitting.
The British Burns Association recommends 37 to
37.5°C as a comfortable bathing temperature
for children. In premises covered by the Care
Standards Act 2000, the maximum mixed water
outlet temperature is 43°C.
ADJUSTING THE MAXIMUM
TEMPERATURE STOP SETTING
• Remove the end trim from the temperature
control to allow access to the retaining
screw. Undo the retaining screw and pull the
temperature control off (fig.12).
• The maximum temperature stop does not
need to be removed.
• Turn the flow control to full flow. With a
steady flow running, adjust the temperature
spindle until the temperature is about 38°C
(fig.13).
• When the showering temperature is
satisfactory turn off the shower. Refit the
temperature control.
• Secure the temperature control in place with
the screw and fit the trim.

APPROVALS
This mixer valve is approved to the requirements of:
*BS EN 1111
*On pressures above 0.5 bar.
*WRAS
Designation:
HP-S (high pressure shower only)
TMV2 REQUIREMENTS (12 MONTHLY VERIFICATION)
It is a requirement that all TMV2 approved valves shall be verified against the original set
temperature results once a year.
On installation and on a yearly basis please perform the following checks:
1. Cold water supply isolation test
Isolating the cold water supply to the TMV, wait for five seconds if water is still flowing check that
the temperature is below 46C.
If there is no significant change to the set outlet temperature (±2°C or less change from the
original settings) and the fail-safe shut off is functioning, then the valve is working correctly and
no further service work is required.
If there is a residual flow during the commissioning or the annual check this is acceptable
providing the temperature of the water seeping from the valve is no more than 2C above the
designated maximum mixed water outlet temperature setting of the valve.
Note:
Temperature readings should be taken at the normal flow rate after allowing for the system to stabilise.
The sensing part of the thermometer probe must be fully submerged in the water that is to be tested.

MAINTENANCE
Cleaning
The following maintenance procedure must
be carried out for commercial and health care
premises, but is not necessarily required for
domestic installations.
It is recommended that all products are cleaned
using warm, soapy water.
Maintenance of the unit is required to give
continued performance after installation and that
it continues to provide scald prevention.
Do not use abrasive or aggressive chemical
cleaning products as this may affect the product
surface finish and invalidate your guarantee.
Cleaning the filters (fig.A)
Note: a thermostatic mixing valve in need of
maintenance can be undetectable in normal use
and only becomes apparent when a disruption
occurs in the hot or cold water
supply temperatures or pressures.
It is advised that this should be carried out by a
qualified person.
It is a requirement that all TMV2 approved
valves shall be verified against the original set
temperature results once every 12 months.
• Remove the filter housing and disassemble.
a) Initially check the filters for debris once every
three months and clean if necessary.
• Turn off the water supplies before starting.
• To gain access to the filters remove the unit
from the inlet fittings.
• Wash the filters thoroughly under running
water, use a suitable brush to remove all debris.
• Reassemble and fit in reverse order.
b) Perform a thermal shut off test
every three months, and check the
maximum temperature setting. See the
‘Commissioning’ section for the details of
this test and readjustment of the maximum
temperature setting if required.
Note: the filter
housing is Left
hand thread.
‘O’ ring
c) If the maximum water temperature varies
by more than 2°C from the commissioned
setting then carry out the following checks
• Check the isolating valves are fully open.
• Check the internal surface for scaling.
If the body requires descaling then it should be
removed from the pipework to carry this work
out (all rubber parts MUST be removed before
descaling).
• Check the function of the non-return valves.
The non-return valves (NRVs) prevent cross-flow
between hot and cold supplies under unequal
pressure conditions. They are designed for long
life with no maintenance.

Disinfection
Where chlorine is used for the disinfection
of water systems all relevant guidelines and
approved codes of practice must be strictly
followed. Failure to comply with the relevant
guidelines and approved codes of practice may
invalidate your guarantee.
Note: the (NRV’s) will only operate in one direction
- water should be able to flow into the unit from the
inlets, but NOT back out through the inlets.
WARNING!
DO NOT use ‘powerful’ abrasive or
solvent cleaning fluids when cleaning the
shower as they may damage the fittings.
If these checks do not highlight the reason
for the temperature variation, then internal
components will require replacement - please see
the spare parts list.

applicable to the product. (Every product pack contains an installation
guide, however, they can also be bought via our Customer Service Spares
Department).
4. Our engineer will require local parking and if a permit is required this
must be available to the engineer on arrival at the call.

be over 18 years of age) is present for the duration of the service
engineer's visit. If the product is in guarantee you must produce proof
of purchase.
6. Where a call under the terms of guarantee has been booked and the
failure is not product related (i.e. scaling and furring, incorrect water
pressure, pressure relief device operation or electrical/plumbing
installation fault) a charge will be made. A charge will also be issued if
nobody is at home when the service engineer calls or adequate
parking/permit is not available.
7. If the product is no longer covered by the guarantee an up front fixed
fee will be charged before the site visit.
8. Should proof of purchase not be available on an “in-guarantee” call,
or should the service engineer find that the product is no longer
under guarantee, the engineer will charge the same fixed price and
the customer will be expected to pay the engineer before he leaves. If
payment is not made on the day an administration charge will be
added to the fixed charge.
9. If a debt is outstanding from a previous visit, or from any other Triton
purchase. Triton reserves the right to withhold service until the debt
has been settled.

or physically, Triton reserves the right to withhold service and will
support the employee with a legal prosecution.
