HYDRAO SHOWER PRODUCT USAGE
HYDRAO Shower heads are equipped with a micro-turbine that supplies the power to the shower head thanks to the water flow. No battery is needed!
During your shower you can turn off the water up to 2 minutes to soap without losing your current shower data. After 2 minutes the shower head is programmed to assume you have finished your shower.
First check you have the right pressure for the showerhead to operate. As you already know, HYDRAO Smart Shower heads do have any battery as it uses a turbine to harvest the energy of the water flow. Plug in your HYDRAO Shower (if you have not already done so) and open the tap. Point the showerhead upwards over the bath or shower tray so that the water flow is directed upwards like a fountain. Measure the height of the water flow. It should be visibly higher than 70cm (27 inches) for the HYDRAO Smart Shower head to operate correctly, this is equivalent to 0.8 bar of water pressure.
HYDRAO Shower heads are designed to limit your water consumption whilst at the same timoptimising the turbine performance for the lights. Therefore, even if the shower valve is completely open, your water consumption from 3 to 5 bar is limited to 6.6L/min with the excess flow valve (Class A+) and 9L/min without the valve (Class A).
No, HYDRAO Smart Shower heads are simple to use for everyone. The shower head comes with preset thresholds, a smartphone is not needed for immediate use. However, the use of a smartphone is required for changing the volume thresholds and colours, as well as monitoring your water consumption through the HYDRAO Smart Shower app.
We recommend you soak it for 12h into white vinegar once or twice a year in order to eliminate limescale.
HYDRAO Smart Shower head products have a 2 year manufacturer warranty.
Yes, the screw threads are standard, so it is as simple as unscrewing your old showerhead and fitting your new HYDRAO Shower on your standard flexible hose. If you live in the United States of America, where the shower standard is slightly different, we recommend you choose our US Combo Pack including a HYDRAO Smart Shower Head , a flexible hose and a T adaptor.
In order to warranty the best possible experience with HYDRAO Shower, the water flow limiter should only be used if the water pressure at the showerhead is above 0.8 bar.
In order to ensure the best possible experience with a HYDRAO Smart Shower Head, the flow restrictor should only be used if the water pressure at the showerhead is above 0.8 bar. First, check your HYDRAO Shower works perfectly without the flow restrictor fitted (Colours, Bluetooth connectivity, water pressure: the height of water flow should be higher than 70cm (27 inches) when you point your HYDRAO Smart Shower Head upwards over the bath or shower tray). Then, unscrew the HYDRAO Smart Shower Head and insert the flow restrictor following the instructions in the installation guide. Screw your HYDRAO Smart Shower Head back on the flexible hose or overhead fitting. The flow will then be limited to 6.6L/min. If you want to remove the flow restrictor, it is possible to remove it by carefully using a simple tool such as a corkscrew, a paperclip or a screwdriver.
