Watching this brief video will help give you an idea of the potential that the U by Moen Shower offers you:
How to Set Up U by Moen Shower
Here is a helpful Moen resource that will show you how to register and sync the U by Moen app.
- Start the controller – push the power button in the center to start it up. You should be seeing the setup screen when it does start up.
- Select your preferred language – with the hot and cold arrows, scroll to your preferred language. There are only three: English, French, and Spanish. Confirm your selection by pressing “Done”.
- Choose your time zone – in addition to time, you can select the preferred time zone, country, and temperature units, using the hot and cold arrows to scroll. Confirm your choices by pressing “Done”.
- Selecting the optional Water Savings Mode – This is really easy, just read the explanation and then hit “Next.” If you want to implement it, or if you are required by law or contract to engage the Water Savings Mode, select “Yes”.
That’s just the initial setup. It gets slightly more involved after that (but it’s still a pretty simple process, for the most part). For more information, like how to download the app, how to sync the app to the controller, and how to program settings from the app visit the Moen U Support page.
U by Moen Shower Installation Tips
Here is a helpful U by Moen installation video that will show you everything you need to know.
- The digital valve does not require placement behind the shower wall. You can install the valve up to 30 feet away from the controller.
- Must be connected to a GFCI outlet and the valve must not be completely covered.
- If the ambient temperature exceeds 104 degrees or gets below freezing, you run the risk of damaging the equipment.
- The Valve can lay flat horizontally or it can be secured right side up, vertically. Do not install it vertically on its side or upside down (see image to the right). This is a very specialized shower rough in.
- The controller has buttons A thru D (depending on 4-outlet vs 2-outlet) that align with corresponding valves.
- Install the battery backup kit so your shower can operate when the power is out.
