How Showerguard is installed
Showerguard is easily installed by both an electrician and plumber and is designed to be fitted into either new or existing homes with mains or low pressure hot water cylinders.
There are two main components that make up Showerguard, a water flow switch and an electronic timer, the flow switch is a series of high quality brass valves installed by a plumber on to your showers hot water supply pipe , this is the heart of Showerguard as it reduces excessive water flow rates to between 7 to 10 litres per minute and turns off the hot water to your shower when instructed by the electronic timer.
The electronic timer is the brains of Showerguard, this is where you adjust the shower time anywhere between 2 to 20 minutes, warning pulse and off time and is connected by an electrician to the water flow switch, wired to your homes electricity then mounted discretely into the hot water cupboard. Showerguard does require some power to operate but only costs around $3 per year.
Once both of these components are installed simply set your desired shower time with a screwdriver and Showerguard will work automatically in the background limiting long shower times and reducing excessive water flow rates with no need for any maintenance or adjustments.
