Description

Battery Powered Shower Timer

The battery powered shower timer is designed as a handyman installation. Power is supplied by six AA Alkaline batteries contained within the unit, which is fitted at the shower head.

Note: Not recommended for use where rough treatment or vandalism is likely.

HOW IT WORKS

  • The shower is terminated after the chosen time and that is followed by a “discouraging” waiting period.
  • Shower and waiting times are chosen by the owner up to a maximum of 15 and 30 minutes respectively.
  • Power is supplied by a battery of six AA cells (not included). Good quality alkaline batteries are recommended.

Settings

Shower and waiting times are chosen by the owner and also the beeper can be disabled, using mini switches mounted on the electronic circuit board inside the control box. These settings cannot be changed except by removing the shower and the box from the wall. The box can be secured to the wall with the screw provided and a plastic seal must be broken to remove that screw.

Installation

  • Remove your existing shower head
  • Install the batter powered shower timer over the top of your shower outlet
  • Replace your shower head over the top of the shower timer
  • Batteries are contained inside the unit, and last around 18 months or longer

Operation

Push the Start button and the shower will start under the control of hot and cold taps. The progress or Status is indicated by a “traffic” light emitting diode (LED). Every 10 seconds, it flashes green but changes to amber when one minute remains and then red for each of the final 10 seconds. The LED is supported by an optional beeper which will sound twice as a 2 minute warning, once at 1 minute, at 10 seconds and each of the last 5 seconds. The “Finish” light will also flash red for the final 5 seconds.

After the shower is terminated, the blue “Wait” light will flash every 10 seconds until waiting time is complete. You can set the wait time up to 30 minutes, in increments of 2 minute intervals.

The “Battery low” light will flash red when it is time to replace the battery. Soon after that, the solenoid valve will open permanently allowing normal, unrestricted showers and the “Battery low” light will continue to flash intermittently.

Note: The shower head is not supplied. You can usually use your existing one with the shower timer or save more with a water saving shower head!

 

THE BENEFITS OF BATTERY POWERED SHOWER TIMER FOR DOMESTIC USE

Studies have shown that approximately 30% of the total water used in the average Australian household goes down the bathroom drains. Most of this is from showers. The Shower Timer is an effective method to save water by restricting the time used in consuming water whilst taking a shower.

Restricted flow shower heads are designed for saving water and there have been numerous devices designed to time the shower. One water saving device provides a visual display for the user in the form of a timer fixed to the wall in the shower. Other water saving devices have incorporated an audible signal, some in conjunction with a visual indication of time elapsed. There are water saving devices available which shut off the water supply after a pre-determined time. However, the user can re-start the shower immediately and therefore, as a controller, even this device is severely limited. Indeed, none of these water saving devices provide effective control.

Battery Powered Shower Timer is a water saving device which not only indicates the remaining shower time and shuts off the water but also prevents an immediate follow on shower, thus saving water and heating cost.

The flow rate from showers varies from 8 litres per minute to as much as 35 litres per minute. A twelve minute shower using 12 litres per minute will use a total of 144 litres of water. The Shower Timer set to six minutes will achieve water savings of 72 litres per shower. In a home where five showers are taken per day, that is an annual water saving of over 130,000 litres and a potential heating saving of more than $1,000
