By kendo1966

"Quick and easy replacement bar shower. Works well with a combi or open vented hot water system. Only requires feed pressure of 0.2 bar so a 1st choice option as a replacent that should run well whatever hot water system you have installed."

"Hot or What"
25 May 2012
By acrobat
, burnley lancs
"Shower packed up, usual inconveneint Sunday, Luckily I was going to pick up some gear at Screwfix. Asked what they had in the replacement mixer heads and opted for this budget unit. What a steal, perfect fit, dead easy install, and works better than original.
Fantastic unit, Screwfix scores again what a bargain, buy one you won't be disappointed. Thanks Srewfix.

Good quality mixer
18 Dec 2009
By saffron
, Essex
"I needed a cheap mixer valve to replace a pumped shower when I changed to an unvented cylinder for my hot water. This mixer is excellent value for money, well made and easy to control. The only slight criticism is that the mixer is designed for solid wall installations, if you want to fit to a hollow wall you will need to buy a bar mixer fixing kit which cost me another £25 from a local plumbers merchants."

not a helping Shower
1 May 2012
By Aceplumber
, London, SW
"The mixer shower is a dificult one to install
and you must have in mind that the support that it has is just the pipework behind
It is a good looking thermostaatic mixer shower with the pipe work internal
It is simple to use and has a good water flow rate(I had install it with a high water pressure, over 2. bars)

Thermostatic shower valve
7 Jul 2014
By 19peter37
, Maidstone
"I have used 3 of these valves one in my own home and 2 in tenanted properties. The one in my home is fine but both the others have failed. I cannot recommend this valve for use where people are likely not to understand that you leave the red valve alone and use the black valve only.
I am about to change back to manual valves.

Faulty Thermostat
29 Apr 2011
By Mugatu
, Norfolk
"This is, on close inspection, a rather cheap looking product, but i wasn't bothered by the looks, and believed for the money that it would be well made and be reliable. Sadly the thermostatic valve has just broken a year after installing it. So it is now useless, and I will have to spend more money and hope the next one lasts a little longer."

Unconventional
17 Aug 2010
By Voni
, Bristol
"I cannot recommend this product. First the fittings for plumbing in the valve are unconventional. It is not just a matter (as with normal mixers) of push or compression fit. It comes with an offset connection that has to be plumbed behind the wall of the shower. As it happens I was installing the wall and plumbing the shower so I had access to do this. The connection was still fiddly and time consuming.
Second if you wanted to change the valve later on you would have to get behind the tiles (which is out of the question) After getting the valve in the operation was defective. The flow of the cold and hot worked in reverse ! (no I did not get the hot and cold reversed) and it was impossible to regulate the flow. All in all very disappointing ! Had to go and buy a new mixer with conventional plumb fit, and chuck the valve as having installed it there is no chance of a refund. I had to absorb the cost of this, rather than make the customer pay ! Moral ? You get what you pay for !
