INTRODUCTION
The Mira Eco BIR (built-in rigid) adjustable showerhead has three different spray
actions: start, soothe and force which provide an aeration effect that saves water.
It is only suitable for connections to concealed pipework supplies.
The Mira Eco BIR showerhead is available in white or chrome finish.
System Applications
•

•
•
Gravity-fed systems 0.5 bar and above
Mains pressure systems
Pumped systems

Save up to 75% water compared with Mira Logic at 0.5 bar pressure level
Adjustable showerhead with three spray patterns, aerating effect across all
three
Visual indicators for spray settings

Operation
The Mira Eco functions by drawing air into the handset. Some noise will be
noticable to produce this aeration effect.
Combi Boilers
When used in conjunction with an instantaneous water heater (combi boiler) in
summer months, you may experience fluctuations in water temperature when
additional draw offs of cold water are taken e.g. (taps or toilet flush).
Pumped Systems
To get the greatest savings from Eco handset, we recommend the pump is run at
the lowest flow setting.

Water Saving
Water efficiency not only saves money but helps improve the environment and
conserve the water we have. Heating water accounts for a lot of the energy used
in homes, so the more water used, the more energy is needed, contributing to
climate change.
Mira ECO Handset reduces the amount of water needed thanks to its aeration
device and therefore uses less energy to heat the water.
Below are some key points which highlight more ways of being water and energy
efficient:
•
Any warm water which comes through the tap first before running cold can be
collected and used to water plants
•
Keep a jug of water in the fridge instead of waiting for the tap to run cold
•
Turning off the taps when you are brushing your teeth or shaving can save up
to five litres a minute
•
Vegetables and fruit should be washed in a bowl rather than under a running
tap
•
Use the minimum amount of water required when you boil water in saucepans
and kettles, saving energy as well as water
•
Dripping taps can waste up to 4 litres of water a day. Replace worn tap washers
for a quick and cheap way of saving water
•
Always use the Mira Eco to ensure you save water and improve energy
efficiency.

Mira Showers is supporting WaterAid’s work in Madagascar
Madagascar is a unique and beautiful country with a very rich culture, but it is
also one of the poorest countries in the world and lack of access to water and
sanitation pose a serious threat to health. Mira Showers is supporting WaterAid’s
work in this country.
Women and children often bear the burden of collecting water. This can take
hours every day and is physically dangerous and tiring. Children often miss
school because they have to collect water, or because they are ill from drinking
unsafe water.
Mira is supporting WaterAid to tackle this situation through enabling communities
in Madagascar to gain access to safe water and sanitation. These essential
services have an impact far beyond the obvious positive effects on health. They
underpin education and livelihoods and form the first step in overcoming poverty.
Mira has committed to raising a minimum of £10,000 for WaterAid through this
initiative. So, by buying a Mira Eco handset, you are helping to enable more
people to gain access to safe water and sanitation.
£1 per product sold is paid to WaterAid Trading Limited which covenants all its
taxible profits to WaterAid, registered charity number 288701. This promotion will
raise a guaranteed £10,000 for WaterAid.

INSTALLATION
Before Installing
Before installing the showerhead, consider these placement tips:
1.
2.
Position the showerhead at a
convenient position for all the family.
Position the showerhead so that
the spray discharges away from the
shower control, and down the centre
line of the bath or across (rather than
into) the shower cubicle opening.

MAINTENANCE
Cleaning
Many household cleaners contain abrasives and chemical substances, and should
not be used for cleaning plated or plastic fittings. These finishes should be cleaned
with a mild washing up detergent or soap solution, and then wiped dry using a soft
cloth.
1.
To remove limescale, use your thumb
or a soft cloth to wipe any limescale
from the soft rubber nozzles and the
front face of the showerhead.
