Use

The Gjosa Douchette is equipped with a revolutionary technology that saves up to 65% of water. The drops are much smaller than with a standard showerhead and are propelled at high speed. That is why it’s important to use the shower relatively close to the scalp to avoid splashing.

 

The spray is fast and can be adjusted by adjusting your mixer and manipulating the opening differently than a standard shower. You can also adjust the distance of the hand shower to the scalp. The closer you are to your customer’s scalp, the easier it will be to use the hand.

1 – The intuitive use of the Gjosa Douchette is an extension of the hand, ensuring comfort and precision. Its ergonomic design makes it easy to handle.

2 – Keep the jet perpendicular and a short distance (1 – 3 cm) from the scalp for optimal efficiency. Handling can be done with a touching tip.

3 – Thanks to its 360° mobility, the hand shower can cover the entire scalp, up to the nape of the neck.

4 – Protect the face contour from splashes with your hand. 

You may need to tighten your connection between the hose and the Gjosa Douchette with a pair of pliers or a 13 mm wrench. If the leak is still present, a new seal should be installed. 

A thermostatic valve can be installed in order to stabilize the temperature. In this case, it is preferable to use the services of a plumber.

Installation with Aquastop

If the « Douchette » is installed with an Aquastop, there exists an adapted thermostatic valve by Gamox. (Reference: GA905.20 – GAMOXTERM evolution thermostatic mixer)
