Adapting Mixer Tap to Shower by Adding Hose

Postby HamiltonLeight » Mon Aug 02, 2021 11:36 am

Hi all,

I've just moved into a house and it has an electric shower (which is poor) but it has a combi boiler and these taps in already.

If I wanted to add a shower, would it just be a case of taking that nut off where the shower has been capped off and adding a shower hose? (Image attached)

Thanks for your help.

Simply Build It

Hi hamiltonleight
Yes in an ideal world you should be able to do as you suggest. Realistically it’s been capped for a reason so you may need to recondition the shower valve for it to work correctly.
