Part No. 140200

SplashLight is an LED emitting shower accessory designed to be concealed and long-lasting. Water activated color changing LED’s complement a bathroom’s ambiance with minimal setup and maintenance; all you need is an ACO ShowerDrain Premium ShowerChannel and Grate.

ACO SplashLight contains two low-voltage battery-operated LED units which fit directly into the ACO ShowerDrain Premium channel grating. These units will illuminate once they come in contact with water and will come off approximately two minutes after the shower is turned off.

Using the programming software called Picaxe, follow the simple steps in the programming instructions to switch between multiple light colors. The following colors are readily available following our programming instructions below:

ACO SplashLight Blue program

ACO SplashLight Green program

ACO SplashLight Rainbow program

ACO SplashLight Red program

ACO SplashLight White program

After replacing the existing bumper pins with the new ones on the grate, all it takes is sliding the SplashLight unit in until it locks into place. For full installation instructions, see below.
