Need a thermostatic mixer shower with adjustable pipe centre

Postby richhe » Tue Sep 22, 2009 3:21 pm

Please help. I need to replace my shower, but the pipe centres are only 135mm apart. Most thermostatic showers that I've seen have fixed pipe centres at 150mm, and those that have adjustable connections that I've seen are expensive (We only need to fit the 2 showers so that we can sell the house). Has anyone got any advice as to what shower I would be able to have. (NB if it makes any difference I have an unvented water heating system).

If you look at some of the Mira showers - the Mini lite or the Mini Duo, they have 110mm centres. Mira also do an accessory which extends the legs to retro fit pipework centres from 133 mm to 153 mm.

All the Mira installation manuals are available online where you can view all the details.
