INTRODUCTION
AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS
This guide provides instruction for the installation operation and maintenance of Roper Rhodes concealed dual and
triple control Shower Valves. It is beyond the scope of this guide to provide detailed instructions for the installation of
auxiliary products which may be attached to these valves.
Whilst this item has a high quality durable finish, it should nevertheless be treated with care. Surfaces should be
cleaned using only a soft damp cloth and clean water & dried using a soft cotton cloth. Bath / shower cleaning
products, even non-scratch ones could damage the finished surface.
These shower valves must be installed in accordance with the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 and in
accordance with the BuildCert TMV2 scheme.
OPERATING CONDITIONS OF USE
Before installation the operating conditions of use must be checked. The table below contains details of the necessary
conditions of operation. If your water supply cannot meet these conditions then the valve cannot be guaranteed to
operate as a Type 2 TMV2 certified shower valve. This valve is suitable for use in both low pressure (BS 1287) and high
pressure (BS 1111) operating conditions.
Unbalanced Water Supply
Valves must always be operated within either the range for BS 1287 OR BS1111 as described in the table below. Valves
cannot operate effectively where a hot or cold pressure system crosses the boundaries of the two ranges. In addition
the maximum ratio of unbalanced hot and cold water pressures for the valves to operate effectively is 5:1. Hot or cold
pressure must be reduced or boosted so as to work within the required range.
Maximum Water Pressure
Concealed Dual and Triple Control shower valves are suitable for use with all water supply systems up to a maximum of
5.0 Bar. Operating pressures above 5.0 Bar will require the installation of pressure reducing valves.

The valve must be installed so that it is readily accessible for commissioning and maintenance in accordance with the
TMV2 scheme. The valve must be installed with isolation valves on both the hot and cold water systems as close as
possible to the valve; so as to allow the valve to be commissioned and tested correctly. The valve is supplied with
integral strainers on the hot and cold water supplies therefore in-line strainers should not be required. The valve is
fitted with integral check valve cartridges which command the water supply, therefore the thermostatic valve is
protected against cross-flow due to unbalanced line pressures as required by the Water Supply (Water Fittings)
Regulations 1999.
TESTING
It is recommended that showers do not exceed 44°C. The valve temperature should never exceed 46°C. After
commissioning, carry out the cold failure test to ensure the valve is operating correctly and check the valve after
installation to ensure it operates at the correct outlet temperature.
TESTING METHOD
MAINTENANCE
If required removal and cleaning of the thermostatic cartridge can be carried out by removing the cartridge fixing bolt
(take note of the orientation of the cartridge). The cartridge can be pulled from the housing and cleaned using cold
running water. To re-install dry the o-ring seals on the cartridge body and lightly grease using a silicone grease only.
Replace the cartridge ensuring the locating lug is located in the recess on the hot inlet side (left) of the valve.
TROUBLE-SHOOTING
The valve should be tested to ensure correct operation at commissioning and thereafter at stated intervals decided
by the user but never at greater than 12 monthly intervals. The testing will only require a normal thermometer with a
scale greater than 65°C. The temperature sensitive element of the thermometer should always be fully inserted into
the water flow.
1.
2.
Measure the mixed water temperature.
Carry out a cold fail/safe shut-off test by using the isolation valve to shut off the water to the cold supply. Wait 5
seconds, if water is still flowing check that the water temperature is below 44°C. The flow should stop or reduce to a
trickle.
3.
Problem
Solution
After installation shower only runs HOT or COLD and
will not mix.
Hot & Cold supplies are plumbed the wrong way
round. Remove the thermostatic cartridge, undo the
52mm AF clamp nut and pull the cartridge out (using
temperature control knob to aid removal). Rotate the
cartridge 180 degrees and re-assemble
Shower will not run hot enough when first installed
Maximum temperature needs adjusting, see
temperature setting guide
Cold water running back through the valve i nto the
hot water system.
Check and clean the check valve cartridges and
filters located under the check valves.
If you require further assistance beyond the guide below contact the help line on 01225 303 900
Open the cold water isolation valve and measure mixed water temperature. If there is no significant change from
the original settings and fail/safe shut off is functioning the valve is working correctly and no further service is
required. If the outlet temperature has drifted by more than 2°C, or if the fail/safe function does not work, a full
service or re-commissioning is required.
We recommend that in these circumstances you contact a plumber for advice as servicing should only be
undertaken by a competent person.
WATER SUPPLY - (WATER FITTINGS) REGULATIONS 1999
199
This valve complies with the requirements of the above regulations and installation should be carried out in strict
compliance with them.
COMMISSIONING
Most problems associated with the operation of thermostatic shower valves are caused by debris in the new pipe work
getting into the thermostat. These problems are easily avoided by thoroughly flushing the pipe work BEFORE the shower
valve is fitted.
