Gym Shower FAQs
How to Install a Shower
As you may have noticed when shopping for a new or replacement shower, there are all sorts of types, from the common electric shower to modern mixer showers. With these come different requirements for installation. The following steps give you a guide to installing an electric shower and achieving that professional finish.
- Step One: Pipework – Before you get to installing your shower unit, you need to fit the pipework and electricity supply.
- Step Two: Mark out and drill your fixing holes – Hold the shower unit in position and mark the fixing holes with a pencil. Drill holes at the marked positions. Fit some wall plugs, and squeeze a little sealant onto each one.
- Step Three: Feed the pipe and electric cable through the shower backplate, then screw it to the wall using the screws supplied.
- Step Four: 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 terminal.
- Step Five: Fit the cover according to the manufacturer’s instructions, ensuring that the rubber seal is in place.
- Step Six: Fit your rail, making sure you put it high enough so your shower head doesn’t dangle less than 25mm from the spill-over level of your shower tray, otherwise, dirty water might siphon back into your clean water supply.
- Step Seven: Screw one end of the hose to the handset, making sure you include any washers supplied. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to check everything is working correctly before finally screwing the other end to your shower unit.
How Much Does It Cost To Install A Shower?
The average cost of shower installation will then depend on the particulars of your project. Please contact us with details of your project for an exact price.
How high should a shower head be installed?
The standard shower head height should be 80 inches above the floor, however, the choice of your shower height is based on your needs and space in the washroom.
Handheld showerheads attached to a riser rail can allow for an individual to adjust the height of the shower to suit them, however, this system is more likely to get damaged or vandalised in high traffic areas.
How long does it take to install a shower?
To clean and descale the shower heads in your washrooms, the most common method is to use white vinegar. Simply unscrew the showerhead (larger shower heads may have a quick-release mechanism instead) and leave them submerged in white vinegar. The acidic properties of white vinegar will clear away limescale, leaving your shower head good as new.
How does a thermostatic shower valve work?
Thermostatic shower valves mix together hot and cold water to a temperature that you have selected and can change the temperature or pressure of the water in an instant by making adjustments to the amount of hot and cold water which is allowed to flow through.
A thermostatic shower valve is beneficial because it prevents scalding so is safer, particularly for children, elderly and disabled users.
