Exposed Shower Valve With Hidden Riser Pipe

Postby cimbian » Tue Oct 15, 2019 4:47 pm

It seems fairly obvious to me, but is proving to be difficult to find.

I'm putting in a new mixer shower and need the mixer valve to be on the surface of the tiles, as there is not enough depth in the wall to bury it, but I want the pipework to the fixed head to be buried.

So far I have only found one system that allows this, and that's the Hansgrohe Shower Tablet.

Finished installation
Valve body
Buried pipework

All other mixers have the riser connection on the outer-edges of the mixer (like a conventional D-Bar).

Aside from the Hansgrohe, has anyone any ideas or experience of this?
