If you don’t have a spare fuse way or the rating at the main
fuse box is below 80A, you should seek advice from an
electrician and may need a new consumer unit - specifically
for the shower.
A separate and permanently connected cable must be taken
from the consumer unit directly to the shower via a 45 Amp
double pole switch with a minimum contact separation gap
of 3mm in live (L) and neutral (N) poles.
The isolating switch can be a ceiling mounted pull cord
switch within the bathroom or wall mounted in an adjacent
room. The power switch must be easily accessible and
identifiable as the supply to the shower.
Note: Voltage drop in the supply to the premises, due to
heavy local demand, will affect the performance of your

Water Requirements
This fitting needs to be installed in accordance with the
following Installation Requirements and Notes (IRN) to
ensure they meet the requirements of the Water Supply
(Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 and the Scottish Byelaws
2004.
All water fittings connected to the plumbing system require
an assessment of the risk of contamination by backflow.
The regulations define the levels of contamination risk, called
Fluid Categories, based upon the nature of contaminants.
Fluid Category 3 are fluids which represent a slight health
hazard such as common household disinfectants and Fluid
Category 5 are fluids which represent a serious health
hazard such as human waste.
The fitting shall be installed so that its outlet discharges
above the spill-over level of any fixed appliance such as a
bath or shower tray as indicated on the illustration below.
For backflow protection in premises or installations where
a Fluid Category 5 is present;The vertical distance of the outlet above the spill-over level
shall be not less than 20mm or twice the diameter of the
inlet pipe to the fitting, which ever is the greater. If the fitting
cannot be installed as indicated it shall be installed with
a backflow prevention arrangement suitable for the Fluid
Category.
Double pole
switch
If the shower is to be installed in a hard water area, we
recommend that an in-line scale inhibitor is fitted which will
prolong the life of the shower. Please refer to your supplier
for advice.
Warning: The shower must not be installed in an area
subject to freezing conditions. Do not use if you suspect
the shower is frozen, this will damage the shower unit.
The shower must be connected to a mains water supply only
with a minimum working inlet pressure of 0.07MPa (0.7bar)
at a minimum flow rate of 8 litres per minute. The maximum
static inlet pressure must not exceed 1.0MPa (10bar).
A minimum working inlet pressure of 0.1MPa (1bar) at a
minimum flow rate of 8 litres per minute is recommended for
full Thermostatic performance.
If it is intended to operate the shower at pressures above the
maximum stated, a suitable pressure reducing valve (PRV)
should be used.

so that it can only discharge water at a point not less than
20mm above the spill over level of the bath or shower tray
or other fixed appliance’.
If a showerhead can sit within a bath, basin or shower tray
(Fluid Category 3), you must fit a verifiable double check
valve in the supply pipe to prevent back siphonage.
If the showerhead can sit within a WC (Fluid Category 5)
then the air gap (Type AUK 3) shall be not less than 20mm or
twice the diameter of the inlet pipe to the fitting, whichever
is the greater.

Operating the Shower
Please ensure the commissioning procedure has been carried out.
If you did not fit this shower yourself and you are about to use it
for the first time, check with the installer to ensure he or she has
run the commissioning procedure as described on page 17.
To Start the Shower
1
Press the STOP/START button (1).
eco
During periods of high ambient temperatures (e.g. hot summer
days), it may be necessary to select a lower power setting in
order to achieve your ideal shower temperature. This also
reduces your power consumption.
Thermostatic Operation: When the shower is started, it will wait
a short time for the shower outlet temperature to stabilise to
establish the user’s desired water temperature.
The shower will then monitor the water temperature and adjust
the heating power to compensate for rises in temperature,
resulting in safe showering temperatures.
If the user adjusts either the Power Control or Temperature
Control, the shower will again wait for the user’s new desired
temperature to stabilise. The shower will then resume its
monitoring and compensation of water temperature.
To Stop the Shower
Press the STOP/START button (1).
Phased Shut Down: When the shower is turned off, water will
continue to flow for a short period of time while the heater cools
down. This ensures that the shower is ready for the next user. Do
not use the isolation switch (pull cord) to stop the shower, use
the STOP/START button (1).
It is always advisable to test the water temperature with your
hand before stepping under the shower. Please note that there
is always a delay of a few seconds between you selecting a
temperature setting and the selected water temperature starting
to flow.

Maintenance
General Cleaning
Before attempting to clean your shower unit you must
switch off the power at the isolating switch. Do not remove
the cover.
Do not use abrasive cleaners or solvents to clean this unit.
The shower unit and accessories should be cleaned with a
soft, clean, damp cloth.
Cleaning the Showerhead
Your showerhead has a rub-clean pad for easy cleaning.
Simply rub your fingers across the rubber spray jets
regularly and before you turn the shower on to remove any
scale or debris.
The hardness of the water in your area will determine how
often you should clean your showerhead. Build up of scale
in particularly hard water areas combined with constant
use means you may need to clean your showerhead once
a week. To ensure continued performance of your electric
shower the showerhead needs to be regularly descaled.
