Tricky Bristan shower bar valve question

Postby DennisBLee » Tue Sep 21, 2021 11:01 am

Hi, there I am needing ro replace my Bristan shower valve as the thermostat has seized up and I can't changed the temperature flow. So far no problem, however after reading up the general consensus is that default piping is hot left, cold right so that the thermostat is on the right - however mine is on the left (see pic attached) so I thought I must be piped up incorrectly. However my shower bar is on the right way - hose outlet at the bottom. Can anyone help?

Hi dennisblee
I understand your concern but have you checked that when the shower is running the pipe in, on the left, is actually hot to the touch?
