Installation Cut a 60mm hole with a core drill and affix with self-drilling screws
Permanent Buildings – If fitting to a permanent building there is a requirement for additional non-return valves on the hot and cold feeds to prevent back-siphonage. If the wall is thicker than 40mm then cut the 60mm dia hole to a depth of 40mm from the outside and then cut a larger hole (probably in excess of 80mm dia) to meet the 60mm hole from the inside. This is to allow the connections to be fitted and accessed.
For microswitch activated water systems you will need to install a switch for the pump for the Shower Point. We suggest an illuminated switch just inside the door to remind the user to switch the pump off when the Shower Point is not being used.
For on-demand pressure pumped water systems the Shower Point can be installed as it is, without the need for an electrical switch.
Different Shower Head – If you want a different shower head, most domestic Shower Heads will fit onto the hose assembly supplied.
In winter take care to drain down the shower unit to prevent damage from freezing water – it is therefore good to put isolation valves onto the feeds.
Hose length – You can lengthen the hose using a 1/2in BSP Nipple eg BES Brass Nipple part 6576 or Philmac 90421100 or equivalent and a standard shower hose with 1/2in BSP fittings. The image below shows what is required. Take care not to lose the washers.
