1. Shower installation must be carried out
by a suitably qualified person and
conform with IEE Regulations and
National Water Council bylaws.
2. This shower unit is designed to be
connected to a 15mm cold water mains
supply.
Do not connect to a tank supply
unless a suitable booster pump is
fitted.
3. To make sure of activating the heating
elements, the shower must be
connected to a mains water supply with
a minimum running pressure of 100kPa
(15 lb/sq in) - (1 Bar) at a minimum flow
rate of 8 litres per minute. The maximum static pressure must be no greater
than 1000kPa (150 lb/sq in) - (10 Bar).
(Minimum running pressure must be
obtained at 9 litres/minute for 9.5kW
and 11 litres/minute for the 10.5kW).
4. The shower unit must not be fitted
where it may be exposed to frost, for
example in an outdoor shower area.
The shower must not be used if
suspected of being frozen.
Frost damage is not covered by the
guarantee.
5. Plumbers jointing compound must
not be used.
In instances of difficult joints use P.T.F.E.
Tape. The use of compound invalidates
the guarantee.
6. All plumbing connections must be
completed before making the electrical
connections.
7. The outlet of your shower acts as a
vent and must NOT be connected to
any form of tap or fitting not
recommended by Applied Energy
Products Ltd.
8. Always switch OFF at the isolating
switch when not in use.

SECTION
GENERAL ADVICE TO
SHOWER UNIT USERS
The following points will help you to
understand how your Galaxy shower unit
operates.
The flow rate of water passing through the
shower unit determines the water
temperature. The lower the flow the
warmer the water, the higher the flow the
cooler the water.
The temperature produced by the shower
unit will vary between seasons on any one
setting of the temperature control. This is
due to variance in the temperature of the
water supply, which becomes cooler in
winter than summer.
The stabiliser valve maintains an almost
constant shower temperature during mains
water pressure changes.
If changes in temperature are experienced
in normal use, it is likely to be caused by
water pressure falling below the minimum
level. Falls in water pressure may be due
to water being drawn off at other points
within the building.
The shower head must be cleaned
regularly to remove scale and debris. If the
water becomes hot and you are unable to
obtain cooler water, check the shower head
for blockage.
This appliance is not intended for use
by persons (Including children) with
reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been
given supervision or instruction
concerning use of the appliance by a
person responsible for their safety.
Children should be supervised to
ensure that they do not play with the
appliance.

INSTALLATION
IMPORTANT
Position your shower unit on the wall away
from the direct spray of the shower and at
about the same height as the shower head
position.
The shower unit should be positioned so
that the shower head cannot be immersed
in the bath or shower tray when hanging
down.
To comply with National Water Council
bylaws a double check valve must be
fitted with all flexible shower accessories
where it is possible that the shower head
may come into contact with used water
i.e. In the bath or shower tray.
SECTION
We have incorporated into the bottom
right-hand side of the back plate an easy
removable trim section, to allow easy
access when connecting the water supply.
(Please Note! Remember to replace this
trim section before refitting the cover).
.
Connect the mains water supply to the
inlet of the shower unit using a 15mm
copper or stainless pipe with a 15mm
compression elbow or 15mmm push-fit
elbow. Do not use excessive force
when making the connection to the unit.

TEMPERATURE
Plan your own installation carefully. Check
on the nearest and most readily accessible
rising mains water supply, this may be
beneath the bath or in the loft, where it
feeds the cold water storage tank. Use
only the cold rising water main supply.
Do not connect the shower unit to the
down service from the tank.
Avoid connecting the shower unit, if
possible, were it will be affected by water
drawn off by other appliances, e.g. From
the mains feed to the W.C., This may
cause a drop in pressure too low for the
shower unit to work correctly.
An isolating valve must be fitted into the
water supply for servicing purposes.
Turn off the water supply at the isolating
stop tap.
Having determined the direction of the
inlet water supply: Top (falling), Bottom
(rising), or Back inlet. It is necessary to
remove the appropriate plastic cross
section from the back plate, before
commencing with the installation (See
diagrams Fig 1 & Fig 2).
IMPORTANT
Remove the two screws securing the
shower unit cover and remove the cover
complete with the control knobs.
Place the shower unit on the wall and mark
the location of the fixing screws through the
back plate.
Carefully drill the holes as marked using a
sharpe 5.5mm masonry drill.
Remove this plastic
crosssection when
using the ‘REAR’ or
‘TOP’ entry point for
plumbing.
Fig 1.
Remove this plastic
crosssection when
using the ‘BOTTOM’
entry point for plumbing.
Fig 2.
The back plate is fitted with removable
inserts for Top (falling) and Bottom
(rising) inlet mains water pipework to
the shower unit.
Before turning on the water supply to the
shower unit the water supply pipe should
be flushed out to remove debris. This can
be achieved by connecting the flexible
hose to the 15mm compression elbow and
turning on the mains water supply long
enough to clear the debris.
After flushing the pipework ensure that the
shower unit is positioned squarely on the
Wall and tighten the screws. Tighten all
plumbing connections and check the
pipework for leaks.

The shower unit must be permanently
connected to the electricity supply, direct
from the consumer unit via a double pole
linked switch with a minimum contact gap
of 3mm. The switch must be readily
accessible and clearly identifiable and out
of reach of a person using a fixed bath or
shower tray, unless the switch is cord
operated. The wiring must be connected
to the switch without the use of a plug or
socket outlet.
The cable size required is determined by
the kW rating of the shower and the
distance between the shower and the
consumer unit. The table below will help
you choose the correct cable for your
installation, but it will depend upon the
precise circumstances of the installation. If
you are in any doubt consult an electrician.

FITTING THE COVER INTO
POSITION
NOTE: It is necessary to align the ‘D’ flat
on the reverse side of the Power Selector
and Temperature knobs with their opposite
control spindles before the cover is located.
Secure the cover with the two fixing screws
provided.
IMPORTANT: Turn the flow control knob
anti clockwise until the valve is fully
open before switching on the unit. This
will ensure a fast fill up of the unit when
the shower is first switched on.
The incoming cable should be hidden.
Switch on the power to the shower unit at
the consumer unit and the double pole
switch. At this stage the power selector
knob should be on the STOP/START
position (Outline Grey Symbol).
Connect the live cable to the terminal
marked L.
Remove the shower head from the flexible
hose and point to waste.
RISER RAIL & SOAP DISH
FITTING INSTRUCTIONS
TIPS
A piece of insulating or masking tape
applied to the wall before marking out the
fixing holes will help stop the drill from
wandering, particularly on tiled surfaces.
When working near a basin or bath, insert
the plug in the waste fitting so that small
parts cannot be lost. Take care not to drop
accessories or tools into basin or bath.
l
CAUTION
Check there are no hidden cables or pipes
before drilling holes for wall plugs. Exercise
great care when using power tools near
water. The use of a residual current device
(RCD) is recommended.
2. Use a No 10/5.5mm masonry
drill to make a hole 35mm deep,
and fit the wall plug. (NB some
wall constructions may require the
use of alternative types of wall
fixings). Screw the lower bracket
base to the wall.
3. Locate the crimped end of
the riser rail (Figure 4) into the
mounting bracket, then fit the
upper bracket. Ensure the rail is
vertical, then mark the wall for
the fixing.
