This product should only be fitted by a qualified plumber to NVQ (National Vocational
Qualification) or SNVQ (Scottish National Vocational Qualification) Level 3. Should
the installation be completed by a non-qualified person then the guarantee may be
considered invalid.
For a claim made under our warranty written certification of your installers credentials
can be required. For further information or to find a qualified installer in your area

THE QUALIFICATIONS
At present, to be a plumber you need to follow the National Vocational Qualification
(NVQ) route (Scottish National Vocational Qualification - SNVQ - in Scotland). These
qualifications are made up of theory and practical work in the classroom/purpose built
training facility and work based experience with a working plumber. Colleges should
help students find a work placement, although many students organise it themselves.
The S/NVQ qualification works in levels. All recently qualified plumbers should hold
S/NVQ Level 2 as basic with Level 3 as the preferred level. Level 2 will give you the
foundation you need for a career in plumbing and teach you domestic plumbing to a
satisfactory level. Level 3 is more comprehensive and deals with domestic, commercial
and industrial plumbing along with aspects such as gas - if you want to one day set up
your own business, this is the level to reach. The Institute of Plumbing and Heating
Engineering, and the industry as a whole recommends that all plumbers reach a
minimum of Level 3.
Reaching Level 3 has other advantages. The Institute runs a Master Plumber Certificate,
which only those attaining Level 3 or equivalent can reach as long as they have the
relevant experience as well. Those with S/NVQ Level 3 can (once in membership with
the Institute for five years as a Member MIPHE) gain Engineering Technician EngTech
status with the Engineering Council (UK).

TEMPERATURE SETTING
Removing the handle - pull off the cap and
remove the washer & screw, pull off the handle/
cover.
Rotate the exposed thermostatic spindle
(clockwise for cold, and anti-clockwise for
hot) until the maximum desired showering
temperature is set (38°C - suggested
maximum “pre-set” temperature).
Then line up the button on the top of the
handle/cover with the stop on the stop ring
itself. Push the handle/cover onto the splines,
tighten the screw, refit the cap.
The thermostat is now set to its new temperature
and can only be increased or decreased by
repeating this process.
MAINTENANCE
Before carrying out any maintenance
please remember to turn OFF all mains
water and turn ON the isolating valves.
THERMOSTATIC CARTRIDGES
The concealed thermostatic valve should
give trouble free service, but in the event of
failure, servicing is straight forward.
To remove the thermostatic cartridge.
Remove the handle/cover - see above.
Carefully using the correct size spanner
unscrew and remove the cartridge (it might
be necessary to remove the stop ring).
Wash the cartridge with clean running water
and make sure that any trapped debris has
been removed. Dry and lightly grease the
seals (only use silicone grease). Screw the
cartridge back into the body, replace the stop
ring (if removed) making sure that the stop is
at the 12 o'clock position.
Push the handle/cover onto the splines,
tighten the screw, refit the cap.

INSTALLATION
First shut off your water heating system then, with your mains stop cock closed, open
the lowest hot and cold taps in the house and allow to run until the cold storage tank and
pipes are empty (the hot water storage cylinder always remains full).
Where combination boilers are fitted it is only necessary to turn off the boiler and shut off
the incoming mains.
Fitting isolating valves to the inlet feeds is recommended for ease of maintenance.
INSTALLATION
Remember to turn off the mains water supply before connecting to any
existing pipe work.
Warning! Please check for any hidden pipes and cables before drilling holes
in the wall.
Preparing the pipe work.
As the valve has no means of fixing to the wall it needs to be supported on rigid pipe
work. Prepare the supply pipes (hot on the left and cold on the right) at the required
height with a width of 150mm centres, making the ends of the adaptors level with the
face of the wall, see fig 1.
Screw each ‘S’ connector into the adaptors in the wall see fig 2.
Valve.
Screw a cover onto each of the ‘S’ connectors, place a washer into each of the inlets
in the valve body. Mount the body onto the “S” connectors and tighten taking care not to
damage the surface of the valve.
ATTENTION
Having first checked all new connections, turn on the mains stop cock, close all taps
except the new valves and as the system starts to refill check for leaks.
Once you have satisfied yourself that there are no leaks, switch on the water heating.

INTRODUCTION
Please read these instructions carefully and keep in a safe place for future reference.
General Installation Requirements
The installation must comply with regulations of the Local Water Authority as contained in
their bylaws. All of the taps in this range are single flow (the hot and cold water mix in the
body) and should therefore be supplied with hot and cold water at balanced pressures,
both from the tank or both from the mains (via a combination boiler for example). If the taps
are not supplied at balanced pressures then the mixer will not function correctly. It will also
be necessary to fit non-return valves on both hot and cold feeds. It is very important that all
pipe work is flushed thoroughly after installation to avoid damaging the ceramic discs.
Minimum/Maximum working pressure
These taps are suitable for high pressure installations they are fitted with a ceramic disc
cartridge which provided a good flow rate with very smooth movement.
The maximum water pressure is 10 bar (note: main cold water is normally supplied at between
2 and 3 bar). The required minimum water pressure is 1 bar.
For installations where the mains pressure exceeds 5 bar a pressure reducing valve
should be fitted.
Approvals
All products are manufactured using materials tested and approved under the Water Bylaws
Scheme and comply with requirements of British Standard 5412: 1996 where applicable.
Preparation and bylaw requirements
These taps are single flow so the hot and cold water mix in the body. Water bylaws require
that where the hot water is supplied from a tank and cold from the mains, non return valves
are fitted on both hot and cold pipes as close as possible to the tap. These are not supplied.
Where combination boilers are fitted it is only necessary to shut off the incoming mains and
turn the boiler off, and non return valves are not required.
WARNING
Before installing the new mixer it is essential that you thoroughly flush through the
supply pipes in order to remove any remaining swarf, solder or other impurities.
Failure to carry out this simple procedure could cause problems or damage to the
workings of the mixer.
These hints have been prepared for your guidance, you must exercise due care at all times.
We do not accept responsibility for any problems that may occur through incorrect
installation.
MAINTENANCE
FLOW CONTROL CARTRIDGE
The Flow Control Cartridge uses ceramic discs which normally last indefinitely unless
debris manages to get between them. Wash the cartridge with clean running water, dry
and lightly grease the seal.
FILTERS
Turn off water supply to the valve and remove from the wall. Using a 12mm hexagonal
key undo the retaining nut within each of the inlets. Wash the filters with clean running
water and replace.
OPERATION
Turn the Flow control handle to turn on and off and to increase/decrease the flow of water.
Turn the Temperature control handle to increase/decrease the temperature. Push down
on the Override button and turn the handle towards you to override the set temperature.
To change the set temperature see section on page 5 Temperature setting.
