Installing The Shower Yourself??

Our Units

All the fittings, hoses, wastes, everything you need are included in one great price. There are a few guidelines which need to be meet so you can enjoy your perfect new shower.

1. SPACE

Because all steam shower units are free standing and built away from their final resting positions, there must be enough room available in the bathroom to access the unit from all sides; this is due to the fixings behind the unit. There must be enough room for the installer (at least 40cm maneuverability on all sides) and 15cm at least from the celine to plumb the overhead waste. Please check the dimensions of your desired unit before ordering.

Floors should be completely finished tile or plywood without any gaps to ensure unit support legs can be placed; the cabins are either acrylic backed or made from glass, so you may choose not to fully tile the walls behind. The floor must be smooth and level. Tongue and grooved floorboards, carpet and vinyl’s are not recommended as they will not allow the cabin to be moved freely over the surface which is required for assembly and possible service access at later times.

If you the installation is on ground level on a solid floor, please ensure adequate drainage is in place, in some cases showers installed in this situation will need to be installed on a raised platform to help aid the units drainage

2. Water Requirements

Your shower cabin requires a separate hot and cold water supply of between 1 -3 bar of pressure. The water pressures MUST be balanced (the same pressure on both supplies). Failure to have balanced water pressures may result in damage to the Thermostatic Cartridge, a pressure equalising valve should be fitted

The pipe work should be recessed to allow the cabin to fit flush to the wall. The connections for the water are at the rear of the cabin at a location corresponding into the control panel. The hot and cold water pipe work should be finished between 100 - 150 cm from the floor with 15mm compression fittings. For low level tray and corner units pipes should be installed tight into the corner as the units have an apex recess behind the centre control panel. (SEE IMAGE BELOW) For large tubs or whirlpool bath units pipe can be situated either under the tub or recessed behind

Our Steam Showers and Whirlpool baths are able to operate from:

1. Combi Boilers
2. Pressurised Pumps
3. Pressurised Cylinders/Megaflow Systems

Where the water supply is gravity fed or the pressure
is not adequate, you will need to install a Pump to increase water pressure/flow.

3. Electric Supply

All our steam units are powered off a single standard 13 amp supply unless the unit is a whirlpool unit which is powered by two standard 13 amp supplies. The supply must come from a Isolated Fused Spur that MUST be switched from outside the bathroom. The unit has a supply lead of 1600mm.

PLEASE ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR ELECTRICIAN IF UNSURE

Some units may come fitted with a standard UK plug fitting which can be used to demonstrate the unit fully working. THIS MUST be removed by your electrician upon its final fix.

All electrical work MUST be carried out by a qualified Part P registered electrician and in accordance with current regulations, Failure to adhere to these regulations may cause serious injury, even death, it may also be illegal.
