Site Requirements - Electrical
The shower must be permanently connected to the electricity
supply via a double pole isolating switch with a minimum contact
gap of 3mm in both poles. The switch must be readily accessible
but out of reach of a person using a fixed bath or shower,
except for the cord of a pull cord operated switch. The wiring
must be connected to the switch without the use of a plug
or socket outlet. The supply cable selected for installation
must conform to the relevant table in the current I.E.E. regulations.
The size of cable required is determined by the kW rating
of the shower, the distance between the shower and the consumer
unit and the way the cable is to be fitted. The minimum size
will be 6mm2 but in some cases 10mm2,
or larger will be required. For showers rated above 8kW a
minimum cable size of 10mm2 is strongly recommended.
To enhance electrical safety a 30mA RCD (Residual Current
Device) should be installed in all UK electric and pumped
shower circuits. This may be part of the consumer unit or
a separate unit. IMPORTANT! If upgrading to a higher Kilowatt
shower it is essential to ensure the electrical supply and
shower cable is adequate for the increased load.
Site Requirements - Water
Under NO circumstances must the shower be connected to the
mains cold water supply.
To ensure correct operation of the shower it must be connected
to a gravity fed cold water storage cistern, with a maximum
head of water of 10 metres and a minimum head of water of
80mm, as measured between the bottom of the storage cistern
and the top of the unit.
The shower must be fed directly from the cold water cistern
with no other draw offs between the cistern and the unit.
The tank connection for the cold water feed to the unit should
be on the opposite side of the cistern to the ball valve.
The unit must not be installed where it is subject to freezing

The electric heating elements operate at a constant rate
and the temperature of the water is varied by adjusting the
flow rate using the temperature control. The greater the flow
the cooler the water and vice versa.
The flow rate will be greater in the summer than in the winter
due to the variance in the incoming water temperature. At
border line water pressures, reduction in flow rate can occur.
Therefore, it may be necessary to select a lower power setting
during the summer to achieve your preferred showering temperature.
Showers not fitted with a power selector may not provide a
full range of cool showering temperatures.
Auto Reset System
During normal operation if an overheat temperature is sensed,
power to the elements will be reduced. Water will continue
to flow. When the temperature has cooled sufficiently, power
to the elements will be automatically restored to the previous
setting at the time of interruption.
If, due to a blockage in the outlet of the shower, there
is a build up of pressure in the heating tank, the pressure
relief device (P.R.D.) will come into operation to prevent
any damage to the unit. After operation the P.R.D. will need
replacing. TO AVOID NUISANCE OPERATION OF THE P.R.D. AND OVERHEATING
PROBLEMS ON YOUR SHOWER, THE SPRAYHEAD SHOULD BE CLEANED REGULARLY.
