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"

By acrobat

" 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 bar shower but....
13 May 2015
By Carpenterbri
, Yorkshire
" when I got this bar shower home and unboxed it there were no instructions included! No problem I thought looks self explanatory so I didn't think nothing else about it. However....
I purchased the separate fitting kit to aid installation as I have done for different makes of bar showers but for some reason this one did not make a good seal and leaked! Took it off numerous times only to discover that the back nuts did not make a good enough seal and the filter washers where of poor quality and certainly did not seal against the inlet pipes? I had to strip it down and check the o rings then fit secondary washers to the back nuts then throw away the useless filter washers. Re-fit and guess what it worked! I should have taken it back but sadly I didn't have the time so I thought I'd just persevere! Would have been quicker in the long run to take it back! I think mine must have been someone else's returned item after they discovered the same fault but they took theirs back and I got it! Saying all that maybe it just wasn't compatible with the separate fixing kit? But why wouldn't it be? Surely they are universal? Or maybe not. Best to check the seal before finally committing to the fit.
After 'fixing' it would I buy it again.... Yes but I'd make sure it hadn't been opened before hand and everything was in the box! The unit looks good operates on a 2 bar pump great. Very easy operation. Happy apart from the initial problem. Reliable....only time will tell.

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)
