Should your club showers be relegated? Upgrade with the Duso Sport!

The vibrant, yet functional design of the Duŝo shower column from Horne Engineering has led to its standardisation by a number of leisure operators (Xercise4Less, Fusion-Lifestyle, PfPL and more) as well as its selection by facilities such as the Welsh National Sailing Academy and Events Centre, Brigg Recreation Ground and  Frank Myler Sports Ground. 

With excellent eco-credentials and water saving features, the Duŝo is eligible for tax relief via the Water Technology List.  It’s also very easy to operate, clean and maintain –important for a maximised operational life.

Quick and easy installation is another important feature of the Duŝo design and the adjacent pictures show before and after a recent upgrade of a communal shower area in a council-run football facility.  Oh dear, what a sorry looking area it was! 

Exposed pipework is notoriously hard to clean and, with fittings of uncertain origin, it means that sourcing spare parts and replacements can prove a major, and potentially costly, headache.  In this revamp, the transformation to the Duŝo was achieved over a single weekend to minimise the impact of closing this wash area. 

The first task was to remove the exposed steel water pipes (and the lengthy associated mixed water deadleg, which has implications for the control of waterborne bacteria such as Legionella) and fit replacement pipework above the new ceiling tiles.  New shorter pipe drops were then installed down to each shower head.  A deep clean of the floor, wall tiles and grouting rendered the area hygienic again, but then a quick and easy board-out of wet-wall on top of the wall tiles brightens the area dramatically, whilst ensuring ease of cleaning for the future.

As a fully pre-plumbed shower assembly, the Duŝo column is extremely quick and easy to install upon most surfaces, including wet-wall - hang true, then secure with 3 screw fittings, before simple connection to the pre-blended water supply. The result?  Short work for a smart and inviting shower installation that's now a real doddle to keep clean and looking fresh.

Perhaps that longed-for upgrade is achievable sooner than you might think - minimal downtime and service disruption but giving maximum impact and satisfaction for clients.

Horne also have a unique Valve Sizing Tool that can help determine the optimal size of thermostatic mixing valve (TMV) for supplying safe and comfortable pre-blended water to a group shower installation with timed flow controls, such as the Duŝo.
