We advise that when replacing your
cartridge, that you change the cartridge
like for like. Please refer to page 6 for
cartridge information and page 7 for
specific flow regulator information relating to combination boilers.
2.Cartridge replacement is generally straightforward, however the operation may involve the removal of some small components and therefore it is strongly recommended that after draining down, the waste outlet be covered to prevent loss of any parts.
3Before commencing cartridge replacement, please ensure that you familiarise yourself with the location of all relevant isolation valves and that they are operational.
4Systems, which incorporate a pump, must be electrically isolated and the controlling fuse removed before commencement.
6Filters (See Fig 1 Components): To maximise product life, your new cartridge is protected by a two-part filter system. The hot water element is a push fit insert situated at the base of the cartridge centre tube and cold filtration is achieved by a captive mesh in the cartridge gasket. It is of course imperative that this new gasket is fitted with the replacement cartridge. Should flow rate problems develop at some future time, it is suggested that the first course of action is to check the condition of these items.
7Pressures: All Aqualisa cartridges are designed to control static pressures up to 10 bar (145psi). Where pressures are likely to be excessive, a pressure reducing valve (PRV) must be fitted into the incoming mains supply. A setting of 4 bar (60psi) is recommended. It should be noted that daytime pressures approaching 6 bar (80psi) can rise above the stated maximum during periods of low demand – typically overnight.
5Before fitting the replacement cartridge, it is recommended that the ‘Base’ or Should you experience any difficulties, ‘Hot Water’ O-ring is also replaced. our Customer Services helpline is open Certain products require the O-ring to from 8.30am to 5.00pm Monday to be fitted into the waterway inside Friday to answer any questions the body; others require the O-ring to or guide you through any aspect be fitted onto the T Tube on the rear of of fitting this part.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING 022802 PINK CARTRIDGES
For optimum performance, replacement
pink cartridges, part number 022802 for
use with showers fitted to combination
boiler water systems, are now supplied
complete
with a flow regulator fitted into
the hot inlet port at the end of the T Tube
of the cartridge.
The replacement pink cartridge is factory
fitted with a YELLOW flow regulator suitable for use with a 24kW (80000Btu)
combination boiler. If the shower is fitted where there is a 30kW (100000Btu)
boiler in operation, the factory fitted regulator should be replaced with the OLIVE regulator. Similarly, if the shower
is fitted where there is a 35kW+
(120000+Btu) boiler in operation, the factory fitted regulator should be replaced
with the BLUE regulator.
If in any doubt as to your boiler rating,
please contact the appliance manufacturer prior to the installation of
the replacement cartridge commencing.

Before fitting the replacement cartridge, it is recommended that the ‘Base’ or ‘Hot Water’ O-ring is also replaced. Certain products require the O-ring to be fitted into the waterway inside the body (Fig.24a); others require the O-ring to be fitted onto the T Tube at the rear of the cartridge (Fig.24b). On removal, if the existing cartridge has a white
circlip and black O-ring attached to the
T Tube, then the replacement will also require these. Fit the white circlip and black O-ring from the screw pack, onto the T Tube at the rear of the new cartridge, by first sliding the circlip down the shaft until it locks into place, then sliding the O-ring until it sits flush against the circlip. Once this is completed, continue to instruction 13. If the existing cartridge has no white circlip or O-ring on the T Tube, proceed with instruction 9.

Introduction:
Whilst removal of the cartridge is exactly
the same for both the Mark 1 and Mark 2
models, removal of the On/off control and
temperature control differ – your attention
is therefore drawn to the relevant sections of
the following procedures. Please refer to the
cartridge guide on page 6 if required.
You Will Need:
• No.2 Posidriv screwdriver
• Pliers

Note:
5.Mark 2 models: To remove the On/off control, press down either the left or right hand end of the centre badge as appropriate. This will cause the badge to lift and expose the retaining screw. Remove the screw and pull the control free (Fig 41).
Before fitting the replacement cartridge,
it is recommended that the ‘Base’ or ‘Hot
Water’ O-ring which is situated in the waterway inside the body is also replaced.
A new O-ring is supplied with your cartridge.
Please proceed as follows:

10.The new O-ring may be fitted into position by first sliding it onto the blade a screwdriver. Hold the tip of the screwdriver into the hot water way and then manoeuvre the O-ring down into position (Fig 43).
11.Work the O-ring into the seating, use a torch if necessary to check for correct location.
Note: If changing a PINK 022802 cartridge, on removal of the old cartridge,
if there is a coloured flow regulator fitted
into the bottom of the T Tube, the replacement cartridge will also require the flow regulator to be fitted, like for like. Please refer to page 7 for information
regarding the fitment of the flow regulator.

Should you wish to restrict the amount of
travel of the temperature control lever to
a comfort or safety zone, please refer at
this point to ‘Temperature Limit Pins’ on
page 34. If this facility is not required then
please proceed as follows:
19.With the lever in the vertical position, refit the temperature control using the four M3 Posidriv screws provided. A little more than hand tight will be sufficient, excessive force will result in very stiff operation of the control.

TEMPERATURE LIMIT STOPS
For additional safety, for example where
very young or elderly people will be using the
shower, the fitting of temperature limit pins
may be desirable. The limit pins incorporate
an annular groove to facilitate removal of
the extension once the desired stop position
has been set. These pins are designed to
restrict temperature selection to a comfort
or safety band.
6.If the flow is below the desired temperature, the limit pin will need to be repositioned in a higher hole and the temperature control moved to the new stop position. Check the flow temperature and repeat until correct.
7.To set the MINIMUM temperature use the lower set of holes and proceed as above.
8.Complete the final assembly as described in the relevant section.
To restrict movement (Fig 58)
1.Fit a temperature control lever screw into the top threaded hole in the temperature adaptor ring, about four turns should be sufficient.
