Thank you for your recent purchase of this shower cabin.
Please read this manual with great care to ensure you get
the best out of your build and have a shower that will last
for many years to come!
• Recording that a water tightness test has been
performed – 24 hours after all silicone sealing has
been done and before the unit is installed into place.
It is very important to report any missing parts within 48
hours of receiving your shower. Please make sure you
If your are assembling this unit, then please take the time
have made enough time to open all of the boxes,
to read this manual thoroughly.
carefully inspect each item and check them off against
If you are not assembling this unit, you are still responsible the parts list in your manual.
We cannot replace any missing or damaged items free
of charge unless they have been reported within 48
• Reporting any missing or damaged items within 48
hours of delivery
• Ensuring the competency of the installer
Please Note: This shower is free standing. Please do not
attach to any walls. Ensure you use flexible water hoses at
least 1000mm long and also use a flexible waste. This is
necessary to be able to perform the water tightness test at
the end of the assembly.
The best advice we can offer our customers when they ask
“what is the best way to build this” is to follow the
instructions and perform a dry run to ensure you are confident with the build and you understand fully how the unit is
It is also strongly advised that you fit “easy to get to tap
valves” on both the hot and cold water connections. These
are essential to prolong the life of the valves used in your
shower, as you will need to isolate the unit from the mains
water & electrical supply when leaving it unused for any
length of time.
When we use the term “DRY RUN” this means you do not
silicone anything, just simply construct the shower, align,
drill and screw everything together. Once you are happy
with the build take the unit apart and carry out the full
installation, using your silicone sealer at all points outlined
in the manual.
If you find any items are not to your satisfaction or are
missing then please contact your retailer immediately.
Water Tightness Testing
To ensure that you will have no leaks from your shower it is
essential to perform a water tightness test.
• With all connections fully tightened, hoses checked, jets
fully sealed, your shower still roughly 18 inches from its
designated space and the silicone sealer fully cured for
at least 24 hours.
• Switch on the overhead shower using both the cold &
hot water settings
• Now on the outside inspect each joint, hose, clip, jet,
from one side going round to the back and then the other side finishing at the front.
• Then check all of the shower functions, jets for back
massage, and finally the hand shower, check your joints
to these functions at the rear again.
If you have a small leak (normally caused through
insufficient sealer or an air bubble) Follow the instructions
Dry area thoroughly and reseal on the outside, leave a
further 24 hours to cure & then repeat the water tightness
Again remember where you see water may not be exactly
where the leak is as it could have run round to a low point.

Installation Procedure
The Measurements shown are only a guide
Place the Shower Tray on a solid surface near to the
installation site. Using your spirit level make the tray
level by using the adjustable feet. (Simply turn the thread
carefully using an adjustable spanner.)
Connect the soil pipe, trap and any couplings to the
flexible waste under the tub. You may choose to
fit either a HEPV0 trap with the appropriate couplings or
choose to fit a McAlpine ST28M coupling to a
McAlpine 28-NRV trap. Now fill the tray/tub with some
water and check that the water flows adequately to the
plug and exits satisfactorily. If the water does not flow to
the plug fully, then you will need to increase the fall on
the tray by adjusting the legs. If the water does not exit
the waste section fast enough, then ensure there is
suitable fall in the waste pipe and/or no blockage or kinks
in the pipe work. Check and attend to any leaks.
This product is freestanding so you do not need to fix the

Pre - Installation Notes,
This product comes with 13 amp plug(s) fitted with RCD
unit. We leave the way you prefer to connect this to
yourself due to continued additions to current regulations.
As at July 2013 we offered the following alternatives.
1) Connect within current laws and IP directives using plug
and RCD provided with steam version or supply one for
non steam version
2) (Preferred) Wire into isolated fused feed connecting
directly to the house consumer / service box. Remove the
plug / RCD fitted and ensure the consumer unit has
capabilities to replace RCD feature.
Pre - Installation Notes
Always use suitable protection against electrical surge.
Your shower should be treated the same as a home
computer. A surge protector should eradicate the
possibility of either the transformer or computer control
being burnt out because of this reason.
Please note earth is required and found on chassis of
shower tray. If a steam generator is included a further
earth is required from Steam Generator unit. Each earth
must ground through the power supply line.
Follow these steps to ensure you have a perfectly watertight unit.
• Remove the plastic protection cover and loosen all of
the body jets. These are only set into place to avoid
damage during transport. Apply some sealer to the back
of each jet before tightening, please be careful and do
not over tighten these.
• Now check ALL hose clips as these will be loose as well,
tighten until the hoses cannot move.
• Now remove the 3x flexi braided hoses and check the
clear neoprene washers are in place and tighten into
position. At the bottom of the column check the steam
pod and tighten this in position. Leave plastic transport
protection cover off.
IMPORTANT! Run a bead of silicone where all the panels
meet each other. I.e. back panels to the base and the
central column. The shower is only made waterproof by
correctly applying silicone to all panels
When sealing please note columns are made from
aluminium box section. If your model provides no plastic
cap, seal the hollow end fitting to shower tray completely.
Your bed of silicone situated on the tray may not otherwise
give the desired seal you require.
Side & back walls are pre made. The glass is inserted in
most cases into rubber tube grip. These are to hold the
glass firm but not necessarily to seal (although in many
cases they will) Be prudent, having fitted these panels to
each other and the shower tray first, use a very fine nozzle
outlet, cut at 45 degrees on your silicone gun and run a fine
bead along the bottom of each glass panel and up each
side for approx 150mm.
Pre - Installation Notes
Sealing, Continued
Now take each clip and place over jet / pipe connections and
tighten fully with pliers by crimping them. Note: Should you break
one by over tightening NEVER leave this, Replace with a jubilee
clip if necessary.
Now fully tighten the metal braided flexi hose at “water in” brass
valve position making sure the inner seal is not damaged.
Connect the opposite end to the steam generator “Water In”
position. Towards the bottom of the panel place the steam outlet
pod through the hole supplied and tighten in position. If you have
the slide type make sure the slide position is “UP” others point
upwards also. Taking the insulated flexi steam hose from steam
generator “OUT” connect to the pod (Using PTFT tape on all
water and steam joints) and tighten. You will now have only one
position left on the steam generator this is “WASTE OUT” Connect the hose tightly.
Then you will love the Lisna Waters
Range of Whirlpool Baths!
After using silicone sealer it i.e. essential to leave the unit for 24
hours to allow the seal to ‘cure’ Allowing the sealer to come into
contact with water before this will cause problems later on.
