Thermostatic Mixer Shower Fitting


Postby spluffy » Tue Mar 17, 2009 8:30 am

I have just recently purchased a thermostatic mixer shower and need the following advice.

Basically "how do I connect the water supplies to the mixer body"

The mixer body has a hot and cold inlet (left and right entry) and the outlet that goes vertical.

All three are internaly threaded 3/4" or 19mm. There are no connectors supplied with the shower. What type of connector should I use?

Many thanks

Have you bought this on the cheap ? if not then there's some bits missing, it should come with all connectors.

Something like: http://www.screwfix.com/prods/82086/Plu ... ler-15mm-x
in chrome

Will do the job, but may not look that good, if surface mounted.

If its a recessed valve then you might not have the connectors with it as it will depend on how it is piped whether a straight coupler or a right angled coupler is required.

HE is correct - use 3/4" x 15mm connectors.

Bristan are devils for not supplying all necessary bits for BIV's. Considering how expensive the valves are, it is really annoying to have to go shopping every time I open a box.
