Shower mixer tap problem

Postby umvert » Thu Jan 15, 2009 9:40 pm

Ok - first post, so be gentle

I have fitted a standard shower mixer tap with a pull down piece in the middle that makes the shower work rather than the taps.

Problem is that although it works, its not coming out the shower very fast and some water is still coming out of the tap

Can i fix this, i did buy the taps second hand as money is a bit tight

Would appreciate some help
