- How do I fit a shower?
Fitting a shower is a complicated job and the installation must be full-proof in order to avoid complications down the line. As such, we always advise that you seek the help of a professional for installation. Below outlines what the installation process will look like.
If you’re installing an electric shower, start by preparing the pipework –run a single 15mm pipe from the cold water supply near the storage tank to the wall where you’re putting the shower. Whilst holding the shower unit in place, mark the position for the inlet pipe and power supply capable, then run the pipe through the wall at the place you’ve mark once you’re sure there are no hidden pipes before you drill into the wall. To provide the power supply, drill a hole for the cable at the correct size, then run the cable from the shower unit position to a ceiling-mounted double-pole pull-cord switch. An electric shower will require its own dedicated circuit from the consumer unit, and for your safety, ensure you get an electrician to make the final connection for you.
Once the pipework and electrical supply are prepared, hold the shower unit in place and make a mark of the fixing holes. Drill holes at the marked positions and then fit some wall plugs with a little sanitary silicone sealant into each one. Next, feed the pipe and electric cable through the backplate of the unit and screw it into the wall using the screws that will be supplied. Connect the inlet pipe to your showering unit with a pipe wrench and then fix the cable to the unit by connecting its live and neutral cores to the terminals marked ‘load’ and its earth core to the earth terminals. Next, fit the unit cover according to the instruction manual, ensuring it tightly sealed. Next fit your rail and ensure it’s high enough so that your shower head won’t dangle less than 25mm from the spill-over level of your bath. Lastly, screw one end of the hose to the handset, ensuring you include any washers supplied. Read over the instruction manual to make sure everything is working correctly before screwing the final end to your shower unit.
For the installation of a thermostatic shower, firstly check that all the openings on the valves are covered to prevent any debris from getting in whilst working on the pipework. Next, after deciding on the position of the shower and direction of pipe entry, complete the pipework to the shower area. The hot and cold water pipes should be securely attached within the wall or pall to prevent movement after installation. Next, make sure the compression olives are fitted and all pipework is flushed through before connecting to the shower valve. Then turn on the water to check for any leaks. Install the outer fitting as per the instruction manual.
