Richard Asked :Hi, I would like to replace my existing bath taps with a mixer shower like your 68050. A local plumber told me this is not possible due to a difference in water pressure between the hot and cold supplies. I find this hard to believe, surely it works just like a kitchen mixer where the water temperature and flow is regulated using the taps. I see there is another type of mixer, bar like in appearance with water flow adjusted one end and temperature the other. I could understand the plumbers comments if applied to this style. Do the mixers with twin taps merging water into a single outlet work in a different way to the bar style? If so do you think I'll be ok with a 68050 Any advice most welcome, Thanks Richard
Answered By QS Team :
In order for code 68050 – Maverick bath shower mixer to work sufficiently you will need a minimum of 0.5 bar (5 metres) equal pressure. The higher the handset is placed the more pressure is needed to pump the water through the sufficiently. If your plumber has stated the product will not work properly I think this may be because you only have low pressure. If that is the case I can only suggest that a pump be fitted or for you to look at products with compression ( washer) valves rather than ceramic disc ( taps that only turn a quarter(1/4) of the way ).
