The 316 grade steel is classed as "marine grade" so just adds that even higher quality level than our 304 grade steel, which is classed as "outdoor" grade. Both are totally suitable for outdoor use but we do suggest that in coastal areas especially, where there is high salt content in the environment, then the 316 grade will offer the very best resistance to corrosion. Unlike lesser / interior grade stainless steels or cheaper chrome alternatives which will corrode and rust over time , even indoors in steamy bathrooms.
As with all outdoor water products, it does require an isolation valve to be fitted so that in cold weather the water supply can be isolated, turned off and fully drained. Then the tap left in an open/on position - to avoid any water being trapped, freezing and expanding - which could cause damage to the shower body or more likely the internal cartridge.
Cartridges/ valves can usually be replaced but at a cost and the supplier's warranty will not cover damage caused by frost. Call the Ingarden team on 01732 463409 for more information
