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 shower. To gain
the optimum power possible from this shower unit try to find the
shortest possible route from the consumer unit to the shower to run
your cable.

Electrical Requirements cont.
It is a requirement that a residual current device (RCD) formerly
known as an earth leakage circuit breaker (ELCB) with a tripping
current of 30mA, is incorporated in the circuit. This may be part of
the existing consumer unit or a separate unit.
For close circuit protection DO NOT use a rewireable fuse.
Instead use a suitably rated Miniature Circuit Breaker (MCB) or
Cartridge Fuse.
Please refer to the Circuit Protection Table.

Ohms. This is in line with the general installation requirements of
the UK Network and will generally present no problem within the
UK Network.
In domestic installations you must ensure that the electrical supply
and existing fuse board are adequately rated.
Do not turn on the electrical supply until the plumbing has been
completed and the shower cover re-fitted.

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).
If it is intended to operate the shower at pressures above the
maximum stated, a suitable pressure reducing valve (PRV) should
be used.
Water regulations stipulate that the showerhead be ‘constrained
by a fixed or sliding attachment (hose retainer) 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’.

Commissioning - Testing the System
Warning: Before using the shower for the first time, it
should receive a final flush through and filter clean to remove
any remaining debris that may be in the pipe work or hose and
to ensure the heater unit contains water before the electrical
elements are switched on.
Remove the showerhead from the hose and if not already attached,
attach the hose to the outlet port and ensure that the outlet hose
mesh filter is fitted. The power control knob (3) must be switched to
the cold ( - 9’oclock) position ‘blue’ (heating elements will not be
on).
The temperature control knob (4) must be set fully clockwise to
minimum flow. (This is to prevent the PRD activating when water is
first turned on).

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 18.
To Start the Shower
2
Press the STOP/START button (2).
Note: The display will only light up once the STOP/START button is
pressed, then the temperature indicator display will start to count up.
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.
When adjusting the temperature, including during first start up, do
not rapidly turn the dial to Max Temp to increase the temperature.
Instead, use small changes and wait for the new temperature to
settle before changing again.
To Stop the Shower
Press the STOP/START button (2).
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 (2).
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.
Performance Maintenance Indication
Display shows “CL”. This is a performance Maintenance Indication
that routine service cleaning is advisable to maintain showering
performance. Follow the instructions to Clean the Showerhead,
Clean the Inlet Filter and Clean the Outlet Hose Mesh Filter.
Cleaning the Showerhead
Your Bristan 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.
