mains cold water supply, or to a combination boiler, or pressurised
hot water system.
For correct operation of the Bristan Thermostatic Power Shower both
hot and cold supplies to the unit must be gravity fed, at nominally
equal pressures, from a cold water storage tank and hot water storage
cylinder.
We recommend a minimum 112 litre (25 gallons) cold water storage
tank. Please ensure compliance with all Water Regulations.

Procedure - Plumbing Connections.
Isolate mains water and electrical supplies. To empty the pipe work
open the hot and cold water taps.
Typical Power Shower Installation
Make your connection into the hot water supply pipe from the cylinder,
ensuring that it is the first draw-off (below the expansion pipe tee) to
minimise the effects of water draw offs elsewhere in the house, and
a minimum of 1 metre from the base of the cold storage tank and the
top of the hot water cylinder. If this is not possible, a direct connection
must be made from the hot water cylinder with a cylinder flange.
The cold water supply should be taken directly from the cold storage
tank, and must be positioned 60mm below the cold feed connection
to the hot water cylinder. This should not be directly beneath the ball
valve as aeration of the water going to the shower could cause pump
damage.
Run hot and cold pipe work to the unit position.

portion (15mm)
We recommend that the shower unit is fitted at chest height, and
set to one side of the intended riser rail position, ensuring that the
top of the shower unit is at least 1 metre below the base of the cold
water storage tank.
Important: The unit must be fitted on the finished tiled surface
Warning: Do not seal the edge of the shower unit to the tiled
surface with any form of sealant. The gap between the back of the
shower unit and the tiles is needed for ventilation.
The outlet connection for the hose should be sited at the bottom of
the unit.
Slide out Backing Plate
Side Feed
Do not fit a fuse or switch on mains electrical supply until all
plumbing work is completed. Connecting pipework can feed from
above or below the unit, or straight through the wall at nominal
centres of 40mm.

Procedure:
The integral fittings on the valve are of the self-seal push-fit type.
Ensure that all burrs are removed from the ends of the supply pipes.
Where chromium plated pipe is used then the first 25mm of chrome
must be roughened or removed to ensure that the push fit fittings in
the supply retain the pipe in position.
Reduce Elbows to
40mm
Back Feed
The inlet elbows supplied are of a standard length, in some cases
these will need to be shortened for correct installation.
Surface Mounting
If exposed pipe work is the chosen option, the pipes enter the unit
on the right hand side with the cold on the top. The pipe centres
are 40mm apart, and need to penetrate the mixer connections to a
depth of 25mm.
For chrome
plated pipes
remove the
first 25mm of
plating
Collett
Position the unit on the wall and mark the fixing hole positions. Drill
the wall, insert the wall plugs supplied, and secure the unit to the
wall. Make the necessary measurements, remove the unit from the
wall, and bring the pipe work and wiring to finished positions.
Make the hot water connection into the hot water supply pipe
from the cylinder, ensuring that it is the first draw off (below the
expansion tee), to minimise the effects of water drawn off elsewhere
in the house, and a minimum of 1 metre below the base of the cold
water storage tank. If connection to the hot water storage pipe is not
possible, a cylinder flange type connection may be used.
Make the cold water connection into the base of the cold water
storage tank, 60mm below the level of the cold water take off to the
hot water cylinder.
Flush out the pipe work.
Detach the pipe entry grommet and, using a sharp knife or similar,
remove the centre (15mm dia.) portions, and refit the grommet.

2. Attach wall brackets
Position the wall bracket fixings in the marked positions against the
wall, ensure they are vertically in line with each other and mark the
centres of the fixing holes onto the wall.
Warning: Please check for any hidden pipes and cables before
drilling holes in the wall.
Drill suitable holes and insert the wall plugs. Securely attach the
wall bracket fixings to the wall using the screws.
Tips: A piece of insulation or masking tape positioned where
holes are to be drilled and before marking out the exact position
for the fixing holes will help stop the drill bit from wandering,
particularly on a tiled surface.
When working near a basin, bath or shower insert plug or cover
waste to prevent losing small parts.
Wall bracket
Take care not to drop tools/equipment into basin, bath or
shower during shower installation.
Note: If replacing an existing riser rail, check to see if the existing
holes can be reused or covered by the new wall brackets. Try to
avoid drilling close to the edge of tiles, drill in the middle of the tiles
or in the tile joints.

Commissioning - Testing the System
Connect the shower hose to the unit but do not fit the handset.
Turn on the hot and cold isolating valves, and the electricityisolating switch. Place the open end of the hose in the bath or
shower tray.
Set the temperature control knob to cold, fully clockwise, and press
the ‘stop/start’ button.
Mixer Valve
Spindle
Cold water will run from the hose, and you should allow this to
continue for two minutes after which the control knob should be
returned to the ‘12 o’clock’ position. Allow the water to run for a
few minutes to stabilise the hot water flow, and then check that the
water is at a comfortable showering temperature.
If it is too hot or cold, turn off the electricity-isolating switch, pull
off the control knob, and adjust the brass spindle anti-clockwise
to increase the temperature - clockwise to decrease. Replace the
knob in the ‘12 o’clock’ position, switch the electricity on, and check
the water temperature. Readjust as necessary until a satisfactory
temperature is achieved.
Temperature Adjustment
Pass the shower hose through the hole in the soap dish and, using
the rubber sealing washer supplied, fit the handset to the hose and
place the handset in the handset holder.
Press the Stop/Start button. Water flows from the shower head
under the gravity pressure from the storage tank. The ‘Eco’ button
allows you to switch from a power shower to a gravity (non-powered)
shower.
Temperature Adjustment
The valve allows the maximum showering temperature to be set
at a safe level, preventing accidental scalding. This setting should
be made during commissioning and will require that the hot water
cylinder is at its normal operating temperature.
IMPORTANT:
The handset must be in the spray mode.
We recommend the reading of User Instructions before proceeding
further. This will familiarise you with the operation of the shower.
Turn the brass mixer valve spindle fully clockwise, and then anticlockwise until the black line on the spindle is aligned with the
groove on the mixer body, and fit the control knob in the fully cold
position. Check that it is correctly fitted by turning fully clockwise to
the stop, pull the knob off and check that the black line and groove
are aligned. Adjust if necessary. This sets the shower temperature
to 38-40°C, with the control knob pointing to ‘12 o’clock’, if the
stored hot water is at the recommended 60°C.
