The aronia berry has proven to be one of nature's most powerful antioxidant foods. The small dark berries are packed with nutrients and antioxidants. Aronia berries contain the highest levels of anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins when compared to many of the other well-known super fruits. This status comes from its impressive ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value. Aronia berries surpass acai berries, blueberries, raspberries, goji berries, cranberries and even more fruits in their ORAC value.
Adding this amazing fruit to your daily routine can produce awesome health benefits. Native Americans have used aronia as a healing source for generations. Akronia Valley™ wants to bring you this powerful purple berry so you can reap the benefits aronia can provide.

ShowerLite ClearMirror - are there any controls we need to know about? What is needed for roughing in/electrical? Is it only the cable shown on the supplemental instructions? How is this installed? Do we need to install BEFORE tile or is it installed AFTER tile?
The ShowerLite ClearMirror uses barrel connectors for the LEDs and the heater. They are powered together by the same transformer. The Transformer is plugged into a switched outlet… and could be separate or tied into another switched light in the bathroom.
Electrical rough in depends on local codes. In most cases, the wires can be run through the wall, but you may need a junction box. We provide the extension, so you have approximately 28 ft. The transformer needs to be accessible and have some air flow. Do not store in the wall.
Mirror can be mounted before or after tile. We recommend the mirror be on site to get accurate measurements.
Additional Questions? Please Call or Email
How 'deep' are the Shower and ShowerLite ClearMirrors? Does their installation impact framing?
The Shower ClearMirror is made from high quality 1/4" glass with the heater being less than 1/16" thick, while the ShowerLite ClearMirror is the same glass with added depth of 1/4" for the LED lights. Total mirror thickness plus LED lights is 1/2". The leads for both units exit very near the center of the heater (and mirror).
What do I use to adhere my Shower or ShowerLite ClearMirror to the shower backerboard?
We can also tell you what not to use! Never, never, ever (did we mention never?) use an aggressive adhesive such as silicone (silicon), or ammonium based cleaners. Neither of these should come in contact with the edges or backs of mirrors.
I don't see any ground wires from the ClearMirror? What should I do with the supply ground?
Since we aren't licensed electricians, about all we can tell you is that you do not need a ground wire connected to a ClearMirror. In fact, make sure that you do not connect a ground wire to a ClearMirror wire lead --- it may cause a short and potentially cause damage to the ClearMirror. Per electrical code, it is usually permissible to cap and leave a ground wire inside the electrical box.

Are ClearMirrors safe?
Yes. All ClearMirror products are UL and C-UL approved and listed. The Shower ClearMirror and the ShowerLite are low-voltage and completely sealed to ensure safe operation. All electrical work must be completed to national and local electrical codes.
How do I take care of a ClearMirror?
Use normal glass and mirror cleaners on the surface of your ClearMirror. Do not use any substances which are combustible, toxic, wax or oil-based because these could emit harmful fumes or discolor the mirror surface when heated. Never allow ammonia-based products or silicone adhesives to contact the mirror backing. This will cause the silvering to turn black and will void your warranty.

Issues and Concerns
Neither of the lights on my ShowerLite ClearMirror turn on!
If both LEDs are not working, it is most likely that the wiring is not correct.
- The positive wires for the LEDs and the Transformer must all be together in the same connector and then all the negative wires in the other connector.
See the image below. All positive wires have writing on them and are together in one connector.
It makes no difference for the heater which is why the heater works and the LEDs do not.
The mirror comes set up like this and each mirror is tested.
The transformer wires are disconnected during installation and if the positive and negative leads are switched when reconnecting, the LEDs will not work… but the heater will.
