Quench Shower is a system that substantially minimises clean water running down the drain.
Simply enter the Quench shower and begin to efficiently wash your body using soap & shampoo and rinse off thoroughly. Once the soapy water has disappeared down the drain, push down the drain cover and allow the reservoir to fill (approximately 4 litres (1 gallon) of clean temperature-controlled water). Turn the shower off.
Activate the Auto-Mode and the water will re-circulate continuously through the shower for as long as you like.
The water is filtered, pressurised and heated to the temperature that is set by the user at the control panel – using only 4 litres (1 gallon)!
When you finish simply pop the drain cover up (emptying the reservoir) and step out. Next activate the Sanitize–Rinse cycle and the entire system will be effectively sanitized and rinsed leaving the system in its original hygienic condition ready for the next shower.
These are easily re-assembled on-site by the installer, which is usually the plumber. All plumbing and electrics are factory fitted, and require only basic connection by the on-site contractor. The Quench shower is easier to install than most conventional showers.
The Q2-Model give you the freedom to design your own shower around the unique Quench operating system. This consists of the shower base and tower that simply recesses into the shower wall and is complimented by a choice of cover panels. The cover panel comes in a variety finishes including tile. Alternatively you may choose your own tile.
The tower houses all of Quench’s operating system and allows access to this equipment for any future servicing requirements.
White is the standard color. Black, Gold and Pearl Shimmer are also available. Quench also offers a ‘color matching’ service whereby we can, in most cases, match to the color of your choice – a tile or paint sample is all that is required.
North American models require a dedicated 220 Volt, 60Hz, single phase supply protected by a Class ‘A’ Ground Fault Circuit Breaker (GFCI). A Quench shower installation is similar to that of a whirlpool tub/spa-bath.
Step-1 is to wash your body and to carry out any other personal maintenance that is required –eg: shaving, exfoliating, moisturising, shampooing, conditioning etc in the most efficient time – and limiting this part of the shower operation to around 2 minutes. Don’t forget – during Step-1, the shower water is going down the drain and therefore it is important to limit shower operation time in order to conserve water.
Step-2 is the time spent in Quench, enjoying the shower operation in Auto-Mode. It is in this part of the showering experience that you can relax – knowing that you are not consuming vast amounts of water. During Step-2 the clean shower water is re-circulated and therefore you can shower for as long as you like using approximately 4 litres during the entire showering experience. We encourage you to responsibly manage the time you spend in the shower as you are still consuming energy – 3 to 5 minutes should Quench your showering desire.

Depending on use, the on-board sanitizer storage bottle will require periodic filling with SaniQ. The LED (light) on the control panel will signify when filling is required.
But when you activate Quench mode, the pressure and flow provided by the plumbing in your home has NO influence whatsoever over the performance of the Quench shower. Quench has its own balanced pressure and flow system incorporated, and therefore provides a reliable, consistent high performance shower every single time. The water pressure is maintained and – unlike conventional showers that are fitted with or without ‘pre-water saving’ shower heads – Quench’s performance, when operated in Auto-Mode, will not be effected by the running of another shower in the home, the flushing of a toilet or the running of a tap.
You know that Quench will provide you with an enjoyable, reliable pressurized showering experience – every single time!
It takes 1 Calorie to heat 1 gram (0.0353oz) of water to 1 C (33.8F). No matter the energy source eg: electricity, gas, solar etc… the formula remains the same.
The Quench shower system incorporates it’s very own water heating system to ensure efficient, accurate temperature control throughout the Auto-Mode operation. This unique heating circuit may save around 87% energy consumption when compared to a conventional shower operation for the same showering time.
Because the water that is being heated by the Quench heating system during Auto-Mode is being drawn directly from the reservoir in the shower base, the water is already pre-heated and requires significantly less energy to raise the water temperature to shower temperature. A conventional shower water heating source has to heat cold water (inlet water) to shower temperature, potentially consuming a considerable amount of energy in doing so.
The Quench shower can save around 87% energy consumption when compared to a conventional shower operation. (Refer to Quench Energy Saving Table for further clarification).
There is also a drive towards replacing coal powered stations to gas powered stations for the future. A renewable electricity source is good for the environment and is available now. To switch to a renewable source contact your electricity provider, there are no changes required to your home wiring, equipment etc. it just means that the provider is supplying a cleaner energy source to your home.
When comparing the initial purchase price of a Quench system to a conventional showering system, there are several important factors to consider. Add up the total cost of all the components, building materials and labour required to build a conventional shower – remembering to select components that are of as high quality as those used on the Quench shower.
Don’t forget tiles, grouting etc. The Quench shower system has a moulded base and walls and therefore minimizes tile use and the cost associated of installing them. This also virtually eliminates the risk of water leaks often associated with fully tiled showers, with the added bonus of an ‘easy
to clean’ surface.
With a Quench showering system, all shower components – water strainers, pressure and non-return valves, drain fittings and connection plumbing ready for installation – is all supplied standard – remember the quality!
However, if shampoo & soap is accidently introduced into the re-circulating water during the Auto-Mode, it will simply be flushed through the system during the Sanitize-Rinse cycle. Soaps and shampoos may froth-up during Auto-Mode.
