Isolating Valves:

We strongly recommend that all taps be installed with isolating valves. Using an isolating valve makes routine maintenance so much easier. It is also an effective way to control water pressure and temperature should you need to.

Sensor Toilet Flush Valves (No Cistern):

A dynamic flushing pressure of at least 350kPa is crucial for effective elimination. These valves have a high WELS water rating and use a small amount of water, so the pressure of the water is the key to optimal flush. We strongly recommend 4-star flush valves to be installed with an approved 4-star WELS toilet suite, if you are retrofitting paired with a toilet of lesser star rating, we suggest you use our 3-star WELS alternative (ET4-7.3).

Smart Demand Urinals:

The sensor is 'smart demand urine sensing' it detects the vibration of liquid flowing on the urinal surface and is attached to the rear underside of the ceramic urinal. Flush and distance settings are pre-set on manufacture.

Basic Troubleshooting:

All our products contain electronic components which at times may act in an unpredictable way (think about your PC). Every product is tested immediately prior to dispatch so a faulty product is highly unlikely. The most common issues are listed below but more detailed information is required for some products, see the 'Installation and Troubleshooting' page for further information.

COMMON ISSUES TAPS:

Initial Checks

  • Check Water Supply
  • Unplug all cables, including the plug between the battery box and the solenoid, leave unplugged for 5 minutes (this gives the electronics a chance to reset) before reconnecting everything carefully
  • Check sensor window is clean and unobstructed
  • Check batteries are installed correctly, re-install and check connections
  • Consider replacing batteries (even when the tap is mains powered) as this highlights any fault with power supply/outlet
  • If the red light is indicating when hands are in the activation zone and you can hear the solenoid clicking but no water is coming out; solenoid valve is blocked or obstructed
  • Clean valve and re-test

PLEASE NOTE:

If there is a red light showing or flashing, this indicates that unit is functioning correctly but there may not be sufficient power to activate the solenoid. A flashing red light indicates that the batteries need replacing.

COMMON ISSUES URINALS:

Initial Checks

  • Check water and power supply
  • If battery operated - check batteries are installed correctly, re-install and check connections
  • Consider replacing batteries (even when flush valve is also mains powered) as this highlights any fault with power supply/outlet
  • Unplug all cables, leave unplugged for 5 minutes (this gives the electronics a chance to reset) before reconnecting everything carefully
  • Check sensor is clean, secure and unobstructed
  • Clean the filter and/or solenoid
  • If flow is not sufficient or is too high, adjust water pressure

NOTE:

If red light is on or flashing, this indicates that unit is functioning correctly, although there may not be sufficient power to activate the solenoid. A flashing red light indicates that batteries are low and need replacing.
