IMPORTANT – Before making water supply connections ensure that hot supply is connected to the left hand tailpipe and the cold supply to the right tailpipe, when viewed from the front. If supplies are the opposite way round, these will have to be crossed before connecting the mixing valve. Your Guide to the installation, care and maintenance of Re-setting maximum temperature. Re-setting the maximum temperature is not advisable. THERMOSTATIC CARTRIDGE CALIBRATION. Open the water and check the temperature with a medical thermometer until it reaches 38ºC indication placed on the knob (C) with the slot on the retainer (D). When the operation is over, tighten the screw (B) and insert the plate (A). OPERATION The BTS is supplied factory set at 46ºC for showering applications we recommend a temperature no greater than 43ºC. It is essential that when using the shower function of the BTS the outlet temperature is reduced to prevent injury. CAUTION The following temperatures are recommended when using the BTS BATH 46ºC SHOWER 43ºC Operating the Fully Thermostatic Bath and Shower Mixer. The purchase of this fully thermostatic Bath and Shower Mixer gives you complete confidence that you can both bathe and shower in perfect safety. Operating the central easy grip handle fully controls both the bath and shower water temperature and with an ambient temperature limit stop at 38 degrees, you know that safety is at heart of this product. When in operation of either bath or shower both hot and cold handles are to be turned on to operate the thermostatic control. Failure to not turn on both handles will not allow water to flow correctly as designed, due to the safety feature designed within. The default operation is always the bath and then diverter used at the rear of the fitting to change water flow over to the shower. When either option is in use however, the temperature control is then co-ordinated by the central handle. FUNCTION OF THE DIVERTER. Lower the diverter knob (H) and turn clockwise in order to insert the dowel (I) in the housing on the auger body (L). Now the water jet shall pass through the flexible shaft (F). Return the diverter back to its position by following the above instructions backwards. Please note however upon using the manual override it is always recommended to divert back to bath after use, so unforeseen discharge from the shower head upon next time of usage is not hazardous to the potential bather. Care & Maintenance To maintain the surface finishes, simply wipe occasionally with a mild detergent on soft damp cloth. Dry using soft cloth, never use abrasive cleaners or chemical household cleaners, avoid contact with concentrated bleach. Pegler products are manufactured to the highest standards and should require little or no maintenance.

It is important to ensure that the water supplies to your taps and mixers are connected in accordance with the water regulations (WRAS) requirements and good plumbing practice. It is Pegler’s recommendation and good plumbing practice that the supplies of hot and cold water to the bath/shower mixer should be at equal (balanced) pressures in order to provide a consistent flow. Supplies should be from a common source, either mains or tank fed. If supplies are not equal pressures then non return valves should be fitted (supplied) Pegler supply two non return valves, two filters, two retaining clips and a flow regulator held with a brass housing. These products have been designed to function on all types of water systems Should excessive flow be experienced, then it may be necessary to install a Pressure reducing valve (PRV). It is also our recommendation and good plumbing practice that full bore servicing valves (PB300) should be installed upstream in the water supply line. OUTLET CONNECTIONS NOTE – If a pump is to be installed to boost gravity supplies (as fig 1) please refer to the pump manufactures instructions. WORKING PRESSURES Pegler fittings have been designed to function under the following conditions: Minimum bath supply pressure 0.1 bar Minimum shower diverter operation without manual fixing 0.2 bar Hot water supply temperature 85ºC Maximum. Cold water maximum supply temperature 25 ºC. Valves that operate outside these conditions cannot be guaranteed to work /operate correctly. The outlet for the shower is 1/2” BSP male thread. This will accept standard shower hoses screwed directly onto the outlet. Refer to the Francis Pegler luxury showers brochure for a comprehensive choice of ‘Waterfall’ shower kits. All sliding rail kits come with a hose retaining ring ensure that the handset cannot be dropped into the water creating a possible back syphonage problem. PIPE CONNECTIONS IMPORTANT. Before making any inlet pipe connections all supplies MUST be thoroughly flushed to remove any debris. Failure to do so could result in damage or low flow from the mixing valve. It is a requirement of Byelaw 55 of the Water Fittings Byelaw Scheme that this function is undertaken. Before making any pipe connections to supplies, flow regulators may be required at this stage if required. Use of flow regulator TABLE 1: CONDITIONS FOR NORMAL USE Maximum Static Pressure Ceramic Disc Headwork’s 6.0 bar Maximum Static Pressure Standard Headwork’s 10.0 bar Dynamic Pressure Ceramic Disc Headwork’s 0.1-5.0 bar Dynamic Pressure Standard Disc Headwork’s 0.1-5.0 bar Cold supply Temperature (Maximum) 25ºC Hot supply Temperature (Minimum) 65ºC Pre-Installation Checks When planning the plumbing for your Bath and Shower Mixer installation it is recommended that the hot and cold supplies are independent for gravity fed and pumped systems, and that no other draw off is on the same feed. For unvented and gas heater installations it is preferable that both supplies are the first on the circuit. The hot and cold inlets for your bath and shower mixer are hot on the left and cold on the right when viewed from the front of the fitting. Connections MUST be made in this way. Failure to do so is dangerous to the user and could result in irreparable damage to the internal valve mechanism. It is our recommendation and good plumbing practice that a full bore service valve also (Pegler PB300) should be installed in the inlet supply lines. MOUNTING THE FULLY THERMOSTATIC BATH AND SHOWER MIXER. a) Remove bath panel to gain access to securing the plumbing connections. b) Ensure water is turned off and has been fully drained. c) Disconnect both supplies. d) Unscrew backnuts and remove existing fitting or taps. e) Clean tap platform before installing your new Bath and Shower Mixer. f) Place sealing gasket on top platform in-line with existing holes. g) Locate Bath and Shower Mixer through holes and secure to tap platform with brass backnuts provided. Using the additional sealing washers beneath the ware. Gravity Bath Supplies Mains Cold/Gravity Hot Unvented High Pressure Pumped both supplies Gas Instantaneous Heaters Mains Cold/Pumped Hot Gravity Cold/Pumped Hot Cold inlet No Yes Yes No Yes Yes No NOTE – When connecting the mixing valve to the mains supply it is recommended that the non return valves are fitted on both inlets. This is also imperative if the supply of water is unbalanced on the two inlets. THERMOSTATIC VALVE: MAINTENANCE and/or CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT. Remove the plate (A) inserting a pin in the hole behind the knobs. Loosen the screw (B) remove the knob (C) and the temperature retainer (D). Use the special key to unscrew the thermostatic cartridge (E) and remove it from the body of the tap. Descale with vinegar and lubricate the gaskets with head-resistant grease. Re-assemble the whole by following the above-mentioned instructions backwards. FITTING THE FLOW REGULATOR AND CHECK VALVES. In all installations the minimum fitment must be in order: • Two check valves first-installed with spring loaded central inlet allowing for the flow of water into the mixer • Next the two flat filters-the installation of these is important to ensure that any chance of debris into the thermostatic elements is removed. The lack of installation of these could cause the unit to malfunction and make void any warranty on the product. • Finally to hold the above items in position it is equally important that the retaining clips are used. These are to be located in the groves machined on the inside if the tails by squeezing the clip and locating into position Installations defined where the flow regulator is required, then this should be in place of the check valve. (The Pegler flow regulator combines a check valve and comes complete in a brass housing) This should be pushed in place ensuring the spring loaded central inlet allows the flow of water into the mixer. Its location should always be in the cold side. Push the regulator down the length of the tail and locate securely with the outside ‘O’ ring.
