The Sunshower can be cleaned with a glass cleaner for the bathroom. It is best to dry the glass plate after use. This prevents the formation of calcium deposits. The back of the Sunshower Combi and the Sunshower Solo can also be cleaned. You will find the instructions for this in the instruction booklet. Sunshower also has a special cleaning set with a cleaner and a coating, which prevent surface residue and calcium deposits.

The infrared lights have a lifespan of 2000 hours. The UV lights have a lifespan of 800 hours. After 600 hours (about seven years), the UV output decreases and we therefore recommend changing the lightbulbs at that time. This will be indicated by 5 LED lights around the STOP button that will begin to blink when you start your UV session.

The Sunshower has two functions: infrared and UV. The infrared lights have a peak in the shortwave range (IR-A). This radiation penetrates more deeply into the skin than long wave infrared (IR-B/IR-C). The UV lights provide both UVA radiation and UVB radiation. The Sunshower lights provide more UVB radiation than a regular sunbed. UVB stimulates the production of Vitamin D.
