ATTENTION
ALWAYS FIT EASY TO GET TO ISOLATION TAPS ON BOTH THE HOT AND COLD WATER
SUPPLY (NOT SUPPLIED). JUST LIKE A DISHWASHER OR WASHING MACHINE, THIS PRODUCT
MUST BE ISOLATED WHEN NOT IN USE.
REMEMBER:
These showers are designed to be free standing and movable from their location should you have the need to
replace anything. ALWAYS USE Flexible braided water inlet pipes (not supplied) at least a metre long (not
central heating plastic type!)
Always use a flexible waste pipe from your house supply to the shower .
NEVER FIX with rigid pipes, NEVER FIX the unit to the wall.
4
Before you begin
Assembly requires two persons.
Tools needed to assemble this shower cabin:
Electric screwdriver with a selection of heads, regular screwdrivers, pipe grips, spanners, spirit level, sharp
knife and rubber mallet. Connection of the electrical supply and plumbing may require additional tools.
Do not fully tighten any screw fixings initially during build as this allows the frame to move a little
and aid location of all holes and screws; remember to fully tighten before completion and
subsequent use. There is a drill bit supplied with the kit, to allow either widening of holes or drilling
new holes which you feel cannot be located during construction.
Water requirements
This shower requires two water supplies (1 x hot and 1 x cold) tested to be between 1 and 3 bar, with
a fl ow rate over 7.5 litres per minute.
NOTE: We recommend water pressures over 2 bar to achieve optimum showering
results.
Gravity Fed systems
If you have a Gravity fed system, then fitting a Shower Pump will almost certainly be required. Fitting
a Shower pump rated over 1.5 bar is necessary as a minimum. Shower pumps MUST be properly
sited, installed and commissioned. Incorrectly installed shower pumps will cause adverse affects to
your showering and bathing resulting in pulsing or starting and stopping of the pump. If a pump is
installed, a separate Mains Cold supply must be fitted and directed to supply the Steam Generator
separately (bypassing the pump).
Isolating Valves
You MUST fit isolation valves to the shower unit on both hot and cold incoming feeds as it enables
you to turn off the water supply to the shower when not in use (for example going away on
holiday). Additionally isolating valves makes service checks easier than locating the house stop
cock.
DUE TO THE NATURE OF THIS PRODUCT WE HIGHLY ADVISE THE PURCHASE AND FITTING OF A
WATER SOFTENER
(PLEASE NOTE LIMESCALE BUILD UP MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR SHOWER AND WILL NOT BE
COVERED UNDER WARRANTY)
5
Assembly
Do not fit the shower into locations where you do
not have at least 40cm access all around the cabin
both for installation and for future service access.
We advise you do not fit sinks, toilets etc that
restrict access behind the shower.
You must ensure you can slide the cabin away from
the wall/corner for service access.
Smooth and level walls and floor are required for
ideal installation conditions. Avoid carpet or vinyl
floors.
Please ensure you have correctly water tested the
tub before you continue.
NOTE: Instructions shown based on quadrant
model, The assembly and operation is identical
for offset models except for the rear panels
being different sizes.
Please inspect all parts carefully before
assembly.
BY COMMENCING ASSEMBLY OF THIS SHOWER
YOU ACCEPT THAT THE PARTS HAVE ALL BEEN
CHECKED AND ARE UNDAMAGED.
REMOVE THE WHITE PLASTIC COVER ON
THE BACK OF THE TOWER PANEL IF YOU
WISH FOR BETTER FITTING TO THE WALL
This product is fitted with
toughened safety glass. The
glass is stronger than regular
glass and if it breaks it will form
small pieces of cubed glass, not
dangerous shards of glass. These small
pieces are still sharp, so care must be
taken to handle broken glass with care.
Fitted to the rear
of the tower panel
is a white plastic
protective cover.
This part is fitted to
protect the valve
and pipes during
transport.
If the glass is put under stress or is chipped
it will break.
You may choose to
REMOVE and
DISPOSE of this part
as it is not needed.
DO NOT ALLOW THE GLASS TO IMPACT
HARD SURFACES OR OBJECTS AS
THIS MAY CHIP/WEAKEN THE GLASS.
WEAKENED GLASS THAT IS CHIPPED OR
UNDER TENSION MAY SHATTER AT ANY
TIME, NOT ALWAYS IMMEDIATELY.
6
FITTING SEAT (OPTIONAL)
If your product came with a seat you may choose
to install this item.
Before commencing full assembly of the product
you will need to prepare and fit the seat.
You need to drill three holes for the fixing bolts
into the tower at your preferred height.
Drill the holes in the central tower to the
measurements shown in the diagram below.
Remove the three fixing nuts from the threaded
ends on the rear of the seat fixing plate.
Pass the threads of the seat through the holes from
the front of the tower panel.
At the rear, pass the threads though the white
support piece (white plastic) and then fasten the
bolts to hold.
The seat has a MAX allowance
for use of 100kg
Ensure the bolts are FULLY tight.
7
LEVELING AND FITTING THE TRAY
Remove the protective film covering the base.
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.
Position the tub base in what will be its final location and adjust the feet until the base is level. You can
raise/lower the feet under the tub and with a spirit level laid across the tub, ensure the tub is level.
Now fill the base 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.
Now slide the tub away from the wall to allow access all around the shower as you assemble.
This product is freestanding so you do not need to fix the feet to the floor.
8
FRONT FRAME
Locate the two silver coloured upright frame
sections and the two curved frame rail sections.
You will need the 8 x LONG screws to join these
sections together.
The upper rail is deeper height than the lower rail.
Align the upright with two holes in, to the upper
curved rail. The screws pass through the holes in
the side of the upright and fasten into the curved
rail as shown in the digram below.
A power driver is advised for this process.
DO NOT FULLY TIGHTEN THE SCREWS ALLOW SOME MOVEMENT IN THE FRAME FOR
INSTALLING THE FIXED GLASS
Repeat the process on the other upright.
Finally, join the lower curved rail to the other ends
of the uprights using a single long screw.
You now have completed the front frame assembly.
9
INSTALLING THE FIXED SIDE GLASS PANELS
Remove the SEAL TRIM that is located in the inside
edge of the lower curved rail. It is held in position
by two screws. Remove this trim to help you fit the
fixed side glass panels. You will need to re-attach it
after the glass is fitted.
Locate the two fixed glass panels. These are
different from the doors as they do NOT have any
holes pre-drilled.
DO NOT HIT GLASS WITH HARD
OBJECTS TO PUSH INTO THE FRAME.
Locate the two U shaped rubber seals.
Take one of the U shaped seals and fit over one
long edge of the fixed glass panels. Trim any excess
leaving it running the full length.
Now position this glass panel up to the frame
pushing the long edge of the glass into the
upright of the frame until FULLY bedded into the
frame upright.
This MUST be done from the inside of the frame.
The glass will sit within a lip on the inner surface of
the curved rail both top and bottom.
Repeat this process on the other glass panel.
Now both glass panels are fully inserted into the
uprights you can tighten up the four corners of the
silver framework which will not hold the glass in
position.
10
GLASS RETAINING CLIPS
Now both glass panels are fully inserted into the
uprights you can tighten up the four corners of the
silver framework which will not hold the glass in
position.
Next you need to fit the Retaining Clips to hold the
glass firmly. Position a clip tight up to the glass on
the inside of the upper and lower rails, mark the
position and drill a small hole then fix a screw to
hold the clip in place. Repeat top and bottom on
both fixed glass panels.
CAUTION WHEN DRILLING - ONLY DRILL
THROUGH THE INNER SINGLE LAYER OF FRAME
Re-fix the SEAL TRIM back on the inside of the
lower curved frame.
REAR PANEL ASSEMBLY
NOTE: A bead of sealant can be run
between the joining faces of the back
panels and Center Tower to provide an
extra level of water protection.
You should consider doing this on all
panels with meeting faces then simply
wipe off any excess so non will be 'on
show'
Locate the two rear, framed glass panels. Each
is marked (LEFT or RIGHT). The inside edge to
go to the center control panel will be flat. The
outside end to connect to the frame work will
have a 'T' end
Facing the shower from the front, the panels fit
according to their label.
Now position the Central Tower Panel between the
rear panels.
Align the holes on the rear panels to those in the
tower and fix in place with the screws provided.
Using 8 of the shorter screws, fix through the rear
glass panel fixing holes into the central tower. DO
this on both long sides of the tower.
11
TIP: Only fit each screw loosely at first to allow
enough movement to locate every screw hole.
Once all screws are located in place, then tighten
each screw up fully.
Carefully lift the three joined sections onto the tray
into position.
A bead of sealant along the tray where the panels
will sit will provide a watertight barrier.
Remember to remove any excess sealant once the
panels have been seated into position.
DO NOT SCREW THE PANELS TO THE TRAY JUST
YET.
(Above) 8 x Short Screws used to join rear glass
panels to tower panel. (viewed from rear)
12
FITTING THE FRONT FRAME
Place the completed front frame section onto the
front of the shower tray and align the uprights
with the rear glass panels so that the fixing holes
line up.
From behind the side panel front edge locate a
screw hole into the front frame screw through the
lip of the white framework of the rear glass panels
into the frame to secure in place. (8 x short screws)
The help ease this process, you may need to use
the supplied drill bit in the holes to ensure they are
wide enough and clear.
NOTE: A bead of sealant can be run
between thebetween the back panels
and Front Frame work to provide an
extra level of water protection.
Simply wipe off any excess so non will
be 'on show'
FIXING THE BACK PANELS TO THE TRAY
The rear glass panels can now be fixed to the tray.
At the rear of the shower the lip of the frame has fixing holes to enable the screws provided to be used
to fasten the rear glass panels to the tray. There are 4 fixing points.
Fixing is done with the short screws provided.
13
Before You Fit The Doors You May Wish To See The "SEALING THE
SHOWER" Section Of These Instructions And Apply Sealant Around
The Base Of The Tray Prior To Fitting The Doors
FITTING THE SHOWER DOOR WHEEL RUNNERS
Locate the pack of 8 twin wheel shower door runners (cams).
There are two different types provided.
Continued...
14
(image based on
top cam fitting)
To fit each of the cams, first select the appropriate cam for the position on the door:
4 x Push button/Quick release for the lower position on the doors.
4 x Standard non push button for the upper position on doors.
Position the Cam Body on the outside facing side of the door (curve pointing outwards). Place the clear
rubber gasket between the cam body and the glass. The gasket will fit into the hole on the glass.
On the inside of the door, position the grey plastic inner cam body, then washer and bolt.
Now tighten the parts together with the bolt until firmly held in place.
DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN AS YOU MAY BREAK THE GLASS
With the cam fixed in position, slide on the Chrome finished cover.
Repeat this process of all of the cam wheels.
TO HANG THE DOORS
From inside the shower position the upper wheels into the running tracks on the inside curve of the
upper curved rail and then let the door hand down.
From outside the shower, move the door to what would be a closed position and press the quick release
buttons on the top of the lower cams and move the wheels
to fit into the lower runner tracks.
Repeat for the other door.
DOOR STOPS
On the inside curve of the upper and lower rail are some
holes pre-drilled. Fix each of the 8 door stops at these
locations with the provided screws. The stops also have a
grey cap to cover the screw in the stopper of each —these
simply push into place.
15
FITTING THE DOOR HANDLES
Each of the two shower doors requires a pair of
chrome finished door handles to be fitted.
Each handle is comprised of several parts. Position
the main handle part on the outside of a door
ensuring the Chrome Washer and a Clear Washer
are positioned also on the outside face over the
thread. Push the threaded ends through the glass.
Next place another clear washer on the threads
and then screw on the two different Chrome Knobs
to the inside of the glass door.
Tighten until secure. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN.
OVERHEAD SHOWER
The overhead shower is comprised of three parts.
A chrome ‘J’ shaped arm, a Chrome finished
overhead shower rose and a swivel joint. The joint
may be pre-fitted to the shower rose.
The J Arm has two fixing points on the straight
section that are threaded. Remove the fixing nuts.
Position the threaded sections through the holes in
the upper part of the central glass tower panel on
the inside of the shower.
With the nuts that you removed, fasten at the rear
on to the protruding threaded ends to fix the arm in
place.
Now connect the rose and swivel joint to the arm.
At the rear of the shower, connect the hose that is
coming from the top of the valve to the lower
(water in part) of the J Arm.
TEST FOR LEAKS
Make sure the connection is tested and is
watertight. You may wish to use some PTFE
tape or other suitable products to provide the
best water tight seal on this joint.
HAND SHOWER AND RISER
You are now ready to assemble and connect the
hand shower.
The hand shower comprises of:
Multi function hand shower
Chrome finished riser bar
Hand shower holster
Chrome water hose
Rear retaining nut
Fitting screw
The lower part of the riser bar has a threaded water
connection. Position this part through the larger
hole on the rear glass panel.
Fit the rear fixing nut from the rear of the shower
to hold in place. Secure the upper part of the riser
bar with the screw provided. Tighten both until
secure.
Connect the silver hand shower hose to the lower
part of the riser bar and the other end to the hand
shower head.
At the rear of the shower, locate the grey water
supply hose coming from the shower valve and
connect to the water inlet of the riser bar. Test this
water connection to ensure it is water tight. Using
some PTFE tape or other product may help to
achieve the best watertight connection.
17
GLASS SHELF
Assemble the shelf fully before fitting into the shower.
Position the lower chrome rail over the holes in the glass on the underside of the shelf with the silver
grommets positioned between the two.
On the upper side of the glass, pass the bolt through a washer and through the hole in the glass and
fasten into the end of the lower rail.
Repeat the previous step on the other end of the lower rail so that the rail is securely fixed in place.
Take the two silver caps and fit them over the ends of the washer and bolt to provide a clean finish.
The upper rail pushed over the glass from the front. Using a flat head screwdriver, tighten up the fixing
point of the front rail, which is located on the underside.
Position the two fixing brackets onto the inside of the rear panel of the shower in the holes provided. Fix
the brackets at the rear of the shower with the supplied bolts and washers.
Place the glass of the shelf centrally into the slots of the brackets and then tighten the fixing points
on the underside of the brackets to hold the shelf in place. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE BRACKET
CONNECTIONS AS THIS MAY BREAK THE GLASS.
18
SHOWER VALVE
The shower valve can be accessed from the rear of
the shower and is located on the central tower.
The valve is divided into three parts that are joined
together.
The uppermost part is the divertor. There are
three connections able to be made here. One to
the overhead shower from the outlet pointing
upwards, another to connect to the body jets and
the third connects to the hand shower/riser bar
water inlet.
When making the connections,
ensure they are water tight. Check
all pre-fitted hoses as these may
only be hand tight during
manufacture.
The middle part of the valve handles the water on
and off. There are no connections to be made here.
The lower part of the valve has three connections
to be made. The HOT and COLD water supplies
from you property connect to the outermost
connections - ENSURE THE FEEDS ARE THE
CORRECT WAY ROUND.
REMOVE THE WHITE PLASTIC BOX SECTION THAT
MAY BE COVERING THE VALVE ACCESS AT THE
REAR - THIS IS FOR TRANSPORT PURPOSES ONLY
AND IS NO LONGER NEEDED.
19
SHOWER SEALS
This shower comes with 4 flapped shower seals
that are in two different lengths.
SHORT FLAPPED
The shorter flapped seals fit onto the end of the
fixed glass panels.
LONG FLAPPED
The longer flapped seals fit onto the trailing
edges of the doors.
The seals are not designed to touch the glass, but
when the doors are closed they meet so that water
is unlikely to escape.
MAGNETIC
The magnetic seals fit onto the doors where they
meet.
Ensure all seals are fully fitted onto the glass,
especially the magnetic seals, so that they form an
even seal.
20
Water Connections
This product requires a hot and cold water supply. Your Hot and Cold water supply pipes should ideally
be finished about 1 meter above the floor centrally in the corner and finished with 15mm compression
isolating valvea. The shower will require two braided flexible hoses that connect to these water supply
pipes from the shower valve.
WATER PRESSURE: 1-3 bar (ideally above 2 for optimum results)
WATER FLOW: above 7.5 litres per minute
Important Note Do not exceed 3 BAR pressure under any circumstances. Warranty is void if so as damage will
occur. If you have a combi sup ply, please use a pressure reducing valve if required to lower the BAR pressure to the
shower.
Fitting Isolating valves is recommended as this makes service access easier than locating the house Stop
Cock. Additionally Isolating valve enable you to disconnect water to the shower if you are away from
home for long periods of time.
Combination boiler installation and PEV’s
This product does not normally require a Pressure Equalising Valve (PEV) as it uses the latest generation
of shower valve Thermostatic Cartridge, which enables it to handle un-balanced water pressures itself, to
provide accurate temperature control.
This shower product can be connected to Combi Boiler system that provide suitable water pressure and
water flow rates.
Gravity Fed and Shower Pumps
Where the water is supplied by a hot water cylinder (gravity fed type systems) a shower pump should
be installed. Ideally a shower pump rated over 2 bar supplying just the shower is recommended,
or alternatively a pump of higher specification can be fitted to supply multiple showers within the
property.
When choosing a pump, a twin impeller pump is recommended as this will ensure both the hot and
cold water is of the same pressure. (You must seek further advise from a plumber to correctly spec the
right shower pummp for your set-up
Always refer to the manufacturers instructions regarding shower pump installations and choose the
correct type for your particular situation (negative head/positive head etc). All pipe work between the
storage tank, cylinder and to the pump should be 22mm and the shower positioned at least 250mm
below the header tank. Please note that locating the pump further from the shower and cylinder may
reduce the effectiveness of the pump and will certainly reduce the output pressure of water.
Ensure the pump is correctly installed and commissioned. Failure to fit the pump in accordance with the
manufactures instructions may result in inadequate water supplies and lead to pump pulsing etc.
Maximum pressure: The shower requires water pressure up to but not exceeding 3 bar.
Exceeding this maximum rating may damage the product and will invalidate your Guarantee.
CHECK ALL WATER CONNECTIONS ARE WATERTIGHT. PREFITTED CONNECTIONS MAY
ONLY BE MADE HAND TIGHT AT MANUFACTURE AND/OR MAY WORK LOOSE IN TRANSIT
21
Sealing the Shower
We recommend that you seal the shower
internally with a good quality bathroom sealant
to provide an extra level of water proofing.
After allowing the sealant to set (as per the
sealant directions), water test the shower and
check for signs of water leaking, please attend to
them as required.
All sealant should be placed on the inside of the
shower with a good quality 'Anti-Moulding'
Sealant
PLEASE NOTE:
The shower is made up of solid parts (glass,
metal, Acrylic) Any leaks found during testing
will be down to incorrect sealing - you should
spend a good amount of time water testing the
shower before 'signing it off' with the customer
22
Final Testing
Check and test that each outlet function (hand shower, body jets and monsoon) work as expected by
rotating the DIVERTOR DIAL (top chrome dial).
Check the ON/OFF dial enables the water to be fully on or off in the position indicated on the valve
markings.
Check the Temperature can be increased and decreased by turning the lower chrome shower valve dial.
Test that the button can be pressed at 38 degrees to turn the dial to the hottest settings.
Check the water runs to the waste/plug efficiently. A small amount remaining in the tray is normal.
FAULT FINDING
Water does not exit tray fast enough.
The tray must be leveled and a suitable ‘fall’ on the tray that enable the water to run to the plug.
Additionally, the waste hose (under the tray) should have suitable fall to allow water to exit quickly.
Water pressure / flow is low on some or all shower options.
Check all the hoses are not trapped or kinked and thus restricting flow. Check also that any washers are
not out of position and restricting flow. Ensure you have OVER 7.5 litres per minute flow and over 2 bar
water pressure.
Water is ‘pulsing’ .
If a pump has been used to supply water under pressure and the back jets, or hand shower cause the
pump to start and stop (PULSING WATER), remove the NON RETURN VALVES. Remove the Braided hoses
at the rear of the shower. Look inside the valve where the hoses connected and you will see a silver
coloured ‘C’ clip. Remove this and this will enable the NRV to be removed (white plastic item). Refit the
hoses and re-test. Pulsing may also be noted where a pump has not been fully commissioned and there
is air in the system.
Doors do not meet correctly and or bind when opening or closing.
Adjust the door runner cam wheels correctly to enable smooth running and operation.
Water is leaking out of the shower.
Dry the shower fully. Once dry, turn on the shower and operate the functions and look for where the
water is leaking from. Apply sealant to the area where the water is leaking from.
The shower temperature is low.
If the water in the rest of the house is at a suitable temperature, then you may need to replace the
thermostatic cartridge. Limescale or other dirt can impair the function of the cartridge.
For more help with your shower, please call our technical team will be on hand to help.
23
Valve Operation
There are 3 control dials inside your Shower Cabin. These dials
control the output functions, water flow and temperature of your
shower.
The top dial can be turned to allow you to choose which output
you wish to use: Body Jets, Overhead (Monsoon) Shower and Hand
Shower. Turn the dial to the required output, there will be an audible
click as the selection is made. Do not turn the dial when water is
flowing as this will decrease the life of the selector mechanism.
The middle dial adjusts the water flow rate. The dial rotates though
90 degrees. This dial also acts as the on/off for water flow.
The lower dial controls the temperature. The dial rotates from 20
degrees to 38 degrees and then will stop. This is a safety feature. To
enable temperatures higher than 38 degrees, simply press the knob
on the dial in (toward the main dial) and then turn the dial past the
38 degree mark.
Turning the temperature dial past 30 degrees MUST be done with
care to prevent scaling.
Safety Precautions
On models fitted with Steam functions, it is normal for the steam generator to get quite hot during use.
Please allow up to half an hour for the generator to cool before touching associated areas including the
steam pod.
Always disconnect or isolate the water supply to the shower before commencing any investigations,
service or replacement of parts. Where the product has electrical power, this should also be turned
off.
Children should NOT use the shower unless under strict adult supervision.
All products are single person occupancy unless otherwise sold as twin person.
The tray surface inside the product can become slippery especially if soap, gel or shampoo is on the
surface, we therefore advise care when stepping in, out and during use.
24
Cleaning and third party product use
This shower should be cleaned after every use to remove the build up of dirt and bacteria. We would
recommend that after normal showering use, that the cabin doors are left open until the inside is fully
dry. This will help prevent the build up of soap scum, dirt and bacteria.
The shower cabin can trap dirt in gaps between joints of panels etc, which may require extra care and
attention during cleaning. To minimise dirt build up between panels, the application of a bead of silicone
sealant suitable for shower/bathroom use will fill the gap leaving a smooth finish and both stop dirt build
up and offer an extra level of water tightness.
The shower cabin can be cleaned with any suitable cleaning solution that is not abrasive, and is
recommended by its manufacturer for use on acrylic, chrome and glass surfaces as appropriate to the
materials in the shower. Not all general bathroom cleaners are designed for use on some materials of
this product. Harse abrashive cleaners containing bleach or peroxide MUST NOT be used
DO NOT USE CIF OR OTHER ABRASIVE CLEANING PRODUCTS ON THIS SHOWER.
In hard-water areas, wash down the unit and remove the dirt periodically. Fitting a water filtration device
is also advisable in areas where the water is likely to lead to a build up of minerals within the pipes and
divertor assembly. Hard water WILL reduces the life of the Parts that come into contact with water, such
as the Thermostatic Valve. Fitting water softening devices will prevent this.

Thermostatic Cartridge
Your shower is fitted with a Thermostatic Cartridge. Should you need to remove or replace the cartridge
for maintenance or replacement, follow the instructions below.
Q: I am having to turn the dial round as far as it will go to the hottest setting and the water is
only just warm.
A: Your Thermostatic Cartridge has showed signs of failure. You will need to replace the
Cartridge.
Q: Why did my Thermostatic Cartridge fail?
A: Hard Water areas will result in calcification, which will build up in the Cartridge. Other
reasons might be age of the Cartridge or even dirt or debris collecting in the Cartridge from
the pipes.
BEFORE STARTING ENSURE THAT THE WATER SUPPLIES ARE DISCONNECTED OR ISOLATED
It is imperative that the water supply to your shower in between 1 and 3 bar as exceeding this may
damage the Thermostatic Cartridge.
From inside the shower, on the lower of the three dials,
remove the chrome coloured plastic cap that is fitted on
the opposite side to the chrome lug.
The chrome cap will just pull off.
Keep the cap safe.
Using a 2.5mm Alan key, insert this into the hole where
the chrome cap was fitted and loosen the grub screw
about 1 turn to loosen.
DO NOT UNSCREW FULLY.
Now remove the chrome dial.

With the Chrome dial removed you will see a plastic
ring covering with the Thermostat underneath.
Note down the position the ring is placed in.
Pull the plastic ring (Temperature safety lock)
towards you to remove.
Keep this part safe
You will now see the head of the Thermostat clearly
visible.
Turn the head of the cartridge counter-clockwise to
remove.
To fit your new Thermostat, simple reverse this
process.
