Recommended Installation

Typical Installation
The Shower Manager was designed to be installed between your existing showerhead and the supply pipe (shower neck). By design, the Shower Manager is sensitive to pressure and flow changes, so it is not recommended for use in combination with other flow-controlling devices or accessories that can cause significant pressure changes. Things such as, but not limited to:
  • Pulsating or massaging shower heads
  • Shower heads equipped with on/off valve
  • Hand-held shower heads
  • Oxygen combining shower heads
  • Ultra-low flow shower heads with less than 1.8 GPM
  • In homes with very low water pressure (<40 PSI)
While these types of shower heads may work, they may also introduce problems when used in conjunction with the Shower Manager. Important: Do not attach a showerhead on an extension arm of any size to the Shower Manager, this can damage the unit and void your warranty.

Setting the Shower Time

Note: The Shower Manager comes ready to use, pre-programmed with the 5 minute full-flow setting for maximum water and energy savings.

How to change the shower time.

Locate the magnet below and place it on the Shower Manager as shown.

Notice: The line or rasied bar on the side for correct placement of the magnet. Slowly move the magnet from the front to the back along this line until you hear 1-3 beeps. The number of beeps indicates the current time setting.

Note: The unit can’t be programmed while in full-flow, reduced-flow, or during the reset period. If the unit refuses to respond to programming, wait a full five minutes before trying again.

To change the time setting:
Repeat the placement of the magnet on the line, but hold it there until the number of beeps changes to correspond with your desired time setting.

Prepare for Use

Prepare your shower timer Verify the included rubber washer is installed in the water inlet. Correctly installed, this washer provides a drip-free seal.

Prepare your threads Optional: In the event of drips due to damaged threads preventing a good seal with the washer. It is recommended to wrap the threads on the shower neck with 2-3 wraps of Teflon thread seal tape (PTFE plumber’s tape – not provided).

Notice - No dope allowed IMPORTANT: Use of anything other than Teflon tape can damage the Shower Manager & void the warranty.
