Additional Information

POINTS TO NOTE – SUITABILITY

The easiest way to find out if you can use the on/off shower head is to call your caravan / motorhome manufacturer and determine what type of water pump is fitted.

If it is fitted with a micro switch then you CANNOT use the on/off thumb lever shower head as the water will be open so it will drive the pump but you will be blocking off the flow, which will likely result in a broken pump.

However, if it’s controlled by a pressure switch then it should be fine, as closing the shower head should in turn switch the pump off. You can check this by closing the shower head briefly and listening as to whether the pump turns off. You may need to adjust the sensitivity of the switch to ensure it does switch off.

If in any doubt call your manufacturer to check.

Not suitable for electric/pumped showers.

Please do not leave permanently connected outside as extreme temperatures can cause back spray and will invalidate your warranty.

On 1st Use ONLY turn the water on slightly to determine water flow.

It is important to always turn off the water after use, to avoid bursting your shower hose.

We recommend that when this product is used indoors you use a quality Every Drop Is Precious shower hose (compliant with EN1113) which has been tested for use with this shower head.

The shower head cannot be used as a permanent water stop and has only been designed to give a temporary shut off.

Only suitable for use with normal household water temperatures, do not use with water above 65C or with combined water pressures above 4 bar.

The shower head is not a thermostatic controller, it will only provide a temporary shut-off solution and cannot control water temperature fluctuations caused by your water heating system.

If you also intend to use this product outside it must not be left attached to a hosepipe permanently, as it can be adversely affected by extreme changes of temperature. You may also only need to turn your outside tap on 1/4 of the way, as overly powerful pressure may cause the product to ‘back spray’, and may cause damage.

USEFUL INFORMATION:

If your cold supply to the tap is mains fed and the hot is supplied from a hot water cylinder, when the shower head flow is stopped (when you let go of lever), you could experience the cold water flowing back into the hot cylinder.

Do not panic – this problem can be avoided by fitting a non return valve (or check valve) into the hot water delivery pipe. (In more modern homes they may already be fitted).

This is easily achieved by a competent DIY person or plumber and should take no more than 15-20 mins.

The Hair Wash Shower Head is not a thermostatic controller, it will only provide a temporary shut-off solution and cannot control water temperature fluctuations caused by your water heating system.

  • Always take care when using hot water, especially with children. NEVER leave a child unattended in a bathroom.
  • Always turn on the cold water first and then gradually add the hot until the desired temperature is achieved
  • Before fitting please ensure that the tap surfaces have been cleaned to remove any bath oil or soap residue
  • Do not connect directly to water heaters or combination boilers
  • Do not use with electric or pumped showers
  • To ensure constant temperature and flow, avoid running cold water from other outlets during use

  3. Stephen Harris

    Does exactly what I needed would have help to include rubber washer for the pipe connection but considering a swift caravan replacement was £36 – bargain!

  6. Mum

    I saw this product on the internet and thought i would try it out..hooray! it is so easy to control the water pressure and flow that I am not ending up with soap in my kids eyes. you do need to make sure that you test the temperature each time you press the lever but it takes only a sec to get to the right temp and i am not having to have a de-stress G&T every time I wash them! Hallelujah Every Drop!
