How To Install A Shower Panel


how to Install A Shower Panel
We recommend consulting professional help if you are unfamiliar with installing bathroom fixtures and/or plumbing.
For these instructions, it is assumed that that the water supply lines are in place behind the finished wall and are directly accessible for shower panel installation.
Tools and Materials:


Mounting Hardware


Adjustable Wrench

Silicone Sealant

Damp Cloth
   Step 1  
  Holding the panel in place, determine your installation location and mark the position of the mounting holes for drilling.  
   Step 2  
  Drill the screw holes with the appropriate drill bit for the wall surface or material.  
   Step 3  
  Attach the mounting bracket to the wall with the mounting hardware.

Installation Tip:The type of mounting hardware used will be determined by the material of the finished wall. The proper mounting hardware can be purchased at your local hardware store if not included.
   Step 4  
  Attach the hand shower hose to the outlet on the side of the shower panel. Do this gradually, alternating from one nut to the other until both are tight.  
   Step 5  
  If a separate shower arm is included, insert the new arm into the fitting in the panel and twist to tighten. Finish tightening with an adjustable wrench. Wrap a dry cloth around the shower arm to protect the finish while tightening. Thread the new shower head onto the arm and hand-tighten.  
   Step 6  
  Connect the flexible water feed tubes to the main water supply.  
   Step 7  
  Turn on the water supply to make sure there are no leaks in the water feed tubes before you fix the shower to the wall. If no leaks are detected, continue with installation. If leakage does occur, use your adjustable wrench to tighten the connections as necessary. If problems persist, contact Customer Service at 1-866-855-2284.  
   Step 8  
  Attach the shower panel to the wall by hanging from the mounting bracket. Check to make sure it is hung firmly and level, adjust as necessary.  
   Step 9  
  When the shower panel is in place, turn on the water, check to make sure that all connections are tight (no water should be leaking) and that the hot and cold supplies are working correctly. Divert the water to the each output and allow the water to flow for approximately 60 seconds.  
   Step 10  
  Run a bead of silicone sealant around the sides and top of the shower panel, wiping away any excess sealant with a damp cloth.

Note:Do not run silicone sealant along the bottom of the shower panel. This will allow water to exit the panel if any leakage does occur.
