Hello and welcome to our first
Instalment of 2011. Whilst I’ll admit
to being a little biased, I think a quick
flick through will leave you impressed.
Spring is all about new shoots and showers – both of the
rainy and other variety – and here at Aqualisa, we don’t
tend to do things by halves. After all, why launch one new
shower when you could launch four? Turn to pages 4 and 5
to find out all about our sparkling new range of
thermostatic showers – Dream, Aspire, Siren and Colt.
Water saving is a pressing topic for the plumbing world
at present – check out how we can help you and your
customers go greener with our new range of Harmony
shower heads on page 6. Elsewhere, you can read about
how we’re supporting installers with recession busting
training seminars to bring
you bang up to date with
the latest shower technology.
So, crack open a creme egg,
get the coffee on and…enjoy!

Perfect Harmony ®
Featuring 4 spray patterns, with an easy-click lever, the Harmony
shower heads – which are available with our new range of mixer
showers – Dream, Aspire, Siren and Colt – feature an anti-twist hose
connector, easy-clean jets and boast an eco-spray setting.
Rub clean nozzles
Watching these shower heads on the Aqualisa test-rig
is quite something. Flow is generous and unquestionably
invigorating. But what gets you thinking is when you
realise you’re looking at the ‘eco-friendly’ spray
pattern and you can’t spot the difference, even when
you hold your hand under a flow as low as 4 litres per
minute. There’s no aeration, no trickery, just great
Eco spray design that, if you’re working on an eco-aware shower

Frequently Asked Questions
Stuart Newbury tackles the most Frequently Asked Questions
I have a customer with an Aquavalve 609 who is looking for a replacement
with, of course, another Aqualisa shower. The customer wants a stylish looking
product with fantastic performance, plus I want a shower that will be easy to
retrofit – what do you suggest?
A Dream, from our new range of mixers, fits the bill perfectly.
It uses the same valve and fittings as the Aquavalve 609 meaning it is an ideal
replacement. The up to the minute styling, all metal controls and the new 4 spray
Harmony shower head all add up to a great looking, high performance shower. This
combined with its affordable price makes it great value for money too.
