Installation (Refer to illustrations on Pages 6,7 &11)
Spares For FU MTLSHX C
1) Before starting installation of the shower valve careful consideration must be taken
to ensure when the Ø25 riser pipe is fed through the ceiling that this will not interfere with
existing pipework, joists or electrical equipment and adequate space exists in the roof or
between floors.
Before starting any installation
project, consider “Safety” first.
Look for the “safety note” sign and
read the safety advice.
SEALS KIT
2) Once the position for location has been decided the wall plate (5) must be fixed to the wall
using screws and wall plugs provided (7+8).
3) Take a measurement of 965 mm from the centre of the wall plate (5) to a position
vertically above the wall plate. Mark this position with a pencil and then drill and fit wall plugs
(if required). (See page 11)

4) Fit riser wall support to wall using screw provided (page 6), after this has been done fit
grey plastic insert into wall support with the slot in it facing the wall. Refit brass riser
clamping screw. Keep the chromed indice in a safe place for final fitting once the rest of
installation is complete.
5) Cut the hole through the ceiling so that the Ø25 mm riser pipe can pass through. To
establish the required position of the hole in the ceiling feed one of the pieces of Ø25 riser
through the riser wall support until it touches ceiling and scribe around it using a pencil
(ensuring tube is parallel to the finished wall).
6) Remove riser tube and prepare for cutting.
7) Drill a small pilot hole through the ceiling (suggested diameter approx. Ø10mm)
8) Go into attic/room above installation to establish that the position still does not interfere
with existing pipework, electric cables, joists etc.
9) If position chosen is suitable proceed to cut a Ø30mm (1 3/16”) hole through ceiling.
10) Screw the two halves of the Ø15mm brass tube together ensuring you do not cross
thread the pipe and making sure the o-ring is in place and it is not trapped when screwing
together.
11) Screw the two halves of the Ø25mm chromed riser tube together ensuring you do not
cross thread the tube and making sure the o-ring is in place and it is not trapped when
screwing together.
12) The Ø15mm brass tube is now placed inside the Ø25 chrome tube .

19) Push the manifold assembly over the Ø15mm tube and carefully push down onto the
Ø25mm tube taking care to not damage the o-ring (11) inside the manifold body as this must
provide a watertight seal. Secure the Ø25mm tube using the Compression nut. (Use 38mm
a/f spanner). Ensure a watertight seal.
Note:- The hot water will be fed to the valve via the Ø15mm tube and the Isolation
elbow (14). The cold water is fed to the valve via the Ø25mm tube and isolation
straight (17) forming a cooling ‘jacket’ around the hot supply.
20) Hot and cold water supplies are to be fed to the manifold assembly and fitted to the
isolation elbow (14) and isolation straight (17) using the Ø15mm compression fittings on the
end of each of these units.

21) It is advisable to flush the system before you start using the shower valve this can easily
be done by isolating the water feed at the isolation elbow (14) and isolation straight (17)
disconnect them from the manifold assembly (12) and by opening up the isolation valves
and allow water to be run into a suitable container until all debris is removed from water
supplies.
22) Re-connect isolating units to inlet manifold not forgetting to refit washer/filters (16)
and in the case of low pressure systems (0.5 bar and below) remove yellow and grey flow
limiters (13+18) from the inlet bores of the manifold (12).
NOTE:-Failure to refit items 16 will invalidate the guarantee.
23) Turn on water supplies and check for leaks . Correct if required.
24) The chrome ceiling rose needs pushing up to the ceiling and the indice needs fitting to
the riser wall support bracket after you have tightened down the brass tube retaining screw
(see page 6).

Cleaning Lubrication and re-assembly
1) Soak all metal parts in descalent, wash off in clean water.
Tube Cutting
Specification
CUTTING TUBES TO LENGTH.
2) Examine all o-rings and replace if necessary.
3) Use silicon based grease on all seals (light smear only). A maintenance kit is available, which
contains all seals and grease from your local stockist or manufacturer.
RE-ASSEMBLY
(You may find it easier to take the unit off the wall and hold it horizontally to re-assemble)
1) Replace the spring in the bottom of the valve followed by the piston assembly and thermostat.
2) Screw the head assembly (3) into the barrel valve, taking care not to cross thread, and fully
tighten.
In the event of the Ø25mm chrome riser tubes and Ø15mm brass inner being too long it is
possible to cut the tubes, but the following points need to be taken into consideration:
1) Before doing any cutting of the pipes you must realise that the length differential between the Ø15mm
brass tube and the Ø25mm chrome tube must be maintained. The Ø15mm tube is longer than the
Ø25mm chrome tube by 57mm this size must be maintained within a tolerance of + or - 2mm.
Therefore if 20mm is cut off outer tube 20mm must be cut off inner tube to maintain the differential.
2) The brass Ø15mm inner tube must end up with a rolled edge to stop it cutting into the o-ring
seal which would cause the unit to leak. To achieve this use a pipe cutter that is available from
most reputable plumbing outlets. DO NOT HACKSAW.
3) The Ø25mm chrome tube can be cut using the method above or alternatively by hack-sawing using a
junior hacksaw. Care should be taken to ensure that you cut the pipe square and that after hack-sawing
any burrs are removed from the inner and outer edges and do not leave any debris in the tube. Make
sure that you can still get the copper olive over the pipe.

GENERAL FAULT DIAGNOSIS
If your thermostatic mixing valve fails to operate either immediately upon installation or after a
period of time, the following points should be checked;
1) Check the hot & cold water feeds have been correctly fitted to the inlet manifold.
2) Isolate supplies and ensure that both hot and cold supplies are reaching the valve body. You
may need to dis-connect supply pipes to check this.
3) Ensure that there is no debris between the faces of the piston and it’s mating faces, the
bottom of the valve body and the cartridge.
4) Check that the valve has been installed correctly in accordance of its particular feed system
(i.e use of flow limiters where necessary).
5) Check that the hot water temperature source is sufficient; preferred minimum of 60°C.

Maximum Temperature Setting
The shower valve is factory set to 43°C maximum but may require calibration on
installation. If necessary adjust as follows :1) Turn the lever/knob anti-clockwise to the maximum temperature position.
Service/Maintenance
If your thermostatic mixing valve fails to operate it could be the result of incorrect installation.
Please refer to installation, site requirements and drawings on page 6.
If the valve has operated correctly for a time, but no longer performs acceptably, it may
require servicing/cleaning. Proceed as follows;
1) Isolate water supplies by turning shut offs on items (14+17) through 90° using a flat blade
screwdriver, although a knife would be easier.
2) Remove the lever/knob. See Service/Maintenance page 9.
3) Using a 2.5mm hexagonal key through the head of the cartridge, turn the adjusting
screw to alter the temperature.
>
Turn the adjusting screw clockwise for cooler temperature.
>
Turn the adjusting screw anti-clockwise for warmer temperature.
The temperature should be set to a maximum of 43°C for user safety.
Please Note:- Hotter temperatures may cause serious injury.
