Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "What is the recommended pressure for these shower columns?"
A. The recommended pressure is between 45-65 PSI.
Q. "What is a thermostatic shower?"
A. A thermostatic shower mixes hot and cold water and regulates the temperature of the water keeping it within a range of one half a degree. This is great because you don't have to keep adjusting the hot and cold water to maintain desired temperature; the device does this for you.
Q. "I have an existing tub/shower valve, how would I install a shower column?"
A. After removing your existing shower valve, mount the shower column with hardware provided and connect it to your existing hot and cold water lines.
Q. "Are these hard plumbed or installed with flexible connectors?"
A. These shower columns are installed with flexible connectors (included with unit).
Q. "I have hard water; will this affect my shower spa?"
A. Most of the Showerspa jets have flexible rubber tips which help make removing mineral build-up simple. The manufacturer also recommends wiping down the shower spa with a soft cloth after each use to avoid spotting from hard water deposits. You can clean your shower spa with a mild soap and water. To help keep your new shower spa clean, the manufacturer suggests applying a coat of wax like Gel Gloss or auto spray wax 3 or 4 times per year.
Q. "Do I have to have a plumber install my new shower spa?"
A. Experienced handy persons or a capable do-it-yourselfer could install several of the models above without professional assistance. However, it is recommended you hire a licensed plumber for any plumbing-related job you don't feel 100% confident taking on yourself. As always, be sure to check with authorities for local plumbing code or permit requirements prior to beginning.
Q. "Is installation hardware included with the shower spa?"
A. Yes. All the hardware for a typical shower spa installation is included with your purchase. Note, however, that special situations may require additional hardware or additional plumbing fittings to complete the installation.
