Simple, straightforward and low shipping rates for these stainless steel showers.
Q. "What does it mean to have ANSI Certification for lead free plumbing products?"
A. Laws requiring plumbing products that come in to contact with drinking water to be essentially lead-free (0.25% weighted average) have been passed in California, Louisiana, Maryland, and Vermont. In order for companies to ship these plumbing products to locations in CA, LA, MD and VT, they must be ANSI certified lead free.
Q. "What is CA AB 1953, LA Act No. 362, MD HB 372, and VT S.152 and how is this different from previous low-lead legislation?"
A. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates the amount of lead in drinking water under guidelines established in the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act (passed in 1974; amended in 1988 and 1996). This Act defines "lead-free" as not more than 8% lead in pipes and fixture fittings. PLEASE NOTE: Use of the term "lead-free" varies between the new legislation in CA (AB 1953), LA ( Act No. 362), MD (HB 372), and VT (S.152), and in the current Federal Safe Drinking Water Act requirements. In the new legislation for CA, LA, MD and VT only (as of Jan 2013), it will mean 0.25% or less (weighted average). Similar national legislation is scheduled to go into effect Jan 2014.
Q. "Why is a 'Pool Shower' needed?"
A.There is a national health issue with many documented cases of bacterial infections at public pools and water parks throughout the world. A product such as an outdoor pool shower is a much needed item for pool areas in order to keep our loved ones safe. Besides washing away bacteria, one can also remove lotions, lint, dirt, sand, or other debris which helps keep pool water and hot tubs cleaner and easier to maintain.
Q. "Where are these beach pool showers normally installed?"
A.Our showers have been installed outdoors in facilities such as fitness centers, scuba diving schools, lakes, resorts, hotels, yachts, cruse ships, campgrounds, public pool shower stalls, indoor pools, YMCA's and residential backyards. One of the newest fads for homes is an enclosed outside shower. These are not only used for rinsing off salt or chlorine water, but also for outdoor bathing.
Q. "Can I run both hot and cold water to any of these units?"
A.Yes. The WMHC-445-ADA and the HC-4000-ADA pool showers are designed for use with hot and cold water supplies. For units that have only one supply line you can still enjoy warm water by adding a thermostatic mixing valve, which will blend incoming hot and cold water lines and keep the temperature stable for the single supply line shower.
Q. "What kind of warranty do these outdoor showers have?"
A.Stainless steel components have a 10 year manufacturer's warranty. The valves (as with any mechanical device) will eventually need some service. If the valve breaks or is faulty within one year of you purchasing it from us, the factory will furnish you a replacement valve.
Q. "If I order an ADA compliant pool shower that includes the foot shower, will the foot shower have the metered push-button valve, too?"
A.The ADA compliant foot-shower models come with push-button valves at both the main valve and at the foot shower valve. The hose bibbs and drinking fountains are push valve or lever handle (ADA compliant).
Q. "What is the difference between model PS-1000 and model BS-2000?"
A.The model BS-2000 is similar to model PS-1000, except it includes a foot shower. The foot shower reduces the amount of dirt, sand, grass, leaves, etc. that get tracked into your dwelling. The model BS-2000 is (almost) a must for beach and sandy areas.
Q. "How is the quality of these outdoor pool and beach showers?"
A.The stainless steel quality is incomparable. We expect these outdoor showers to outlast your swimming pool. Of course, during freezing conditions - as with all outdoor pipes - the pipes must be drained completely. No manufacturer warranties broken pipes or valves due to freezing.
Q. "How are these beach/pool showers attached to the plumbing water supply lines?"
A.These great pool and beach showers come with 1/2" x 12" stainless steel flex hose. They are connected by using standard 1/2" pipe. The water line should protrude about 1 1/2" out of the ground. Then it's simply a matter of connecting the two with a stainless steel braided hose. Click here for stainless braided water supplies.
