Hi

I have just purchased a Aqualisa Midas 100 Bath shower thermostatic shower.

In the box it has come with two rubber filter washers which i can find no reference to in the manual.

Where do these go.

I presume they go in the inlet(s) that allow the valve to be detatched for maintenance. On top of the red fibre washers? If this is the case then once they are in position i can barely tighted the valve up as there are no threads available.

Confused.... Do I need these washers? Do they go where I am thinking?

Thanks in advance

I've had a closer look here and can't see anything either.
In your situation I would first remove the fibre washers and replace it with the filter washers and see how it goes. It's never usually a good idea to have 2 washers unless specified.
Trial and error with the priority of having the filters in place on the inlet side

Guys

Thanks for the advice.. ill just not bother with them for now.

The taps been on there years and the ones i just took off where clear of debris. So I presume the system is pretty clear.

We dont (as a rule) suffer too much with limescale here either - so i think ill risk not using them
