Deck Mounted Traditional Victorian Style Bath Shower Mixer Taps Set.
Traditional Victorian Style set of Bath Shower Mixer Taps with Low Pressure tap Gland mechanisms. The taps are Deck-mounted (i.e. they fit on the flat horizontal surface, usually around the edge a bath). The body and fittings are solidly made from Brass with a polished 'mirror' Chrome finish. The 'Cross' handles are marked with 'H' and 'C'.
It comes with Brass/Chrome Handheld Shower Head with a white 'grooved' ABS plastic handle, which sits on a Cradle, and a 1.5m Flexible Hose. It includes solidly made chrome Deck-mounting Pillars or 'legs' which have securing nuts, rubber washers and threaded tails so it can be secured through two holes to the bath. The distance between the centres of the bases of the legs (where they attach to the flat surface) is approx 180mm, the UK standard size, although this can be varied slightly by adjusting the nuts on the back of the taps where the legs attach.
The overall height from the base of the legs (excluding the threaded tails) is approx 23cms. The spout drops down by approx 1cm beneath the bottom of the legs/pillars. The distance from the centre of the legs to the centre of the spout is approx 16cms or 18cms to the tip. The drop from the centre of the handles to the tip of the spout is some 7cms.
The minimum water pressure required is 0.25 bar (flow rate approx. 3.5 litres/min), so it is suitable for a regular gravity tank system (N.B. 2.5 metres minimum height drop is necessary). At 0.5 bars the flow rate increases to around 6 litres/min.
