Replacing Exposed 3/4" 143mm Shower Valves

Postby pauldee76 » Fri Mar 06, 2020 5:43 pm

My shower valve is playing up and the easier thing might be to replace it.

Most seem to have a pipe centre distance of 150mm specified, but mine seems to be 143mm. Is it likely that a 150mm will be adjustable and fit? I notice some have a range but the ones I've seen that do are quite expensive, I'm looking for a cheaper option.

Also, the inlet and outlet on mine are 3/4" BSP, whereas almost every replacement I've seen are 1/2" BSP, can I fit adjusters for these?
