Combined bath/shower mixers
Available with or without a thermostat, bath/shower mixers are the simplest way of showering over the bath. They can either be exposed or built-in. A diverter valve allows the user to switch between bath filling and showering. For safety and comfort it is always best to choose a model with a thermostat.
These are designed to be mounted either on the rim of the bath or a tiled bath surround – ensure you choose the right product according to your situation. For the latter the spout needs to reach over the edge of the bath.
Available in three-hole, four-hole and five-hole typologies, they combine a bath spout and a handshower. One or two handles or levers control the water and a diverter enables you to switch between the shower and the bath.
Integrated bath fillers
These are mounted inside the bath and act as a water inlet, overflow and pop-up waste control.
