These Thermostatic Bath/Shower Mixer Taps are Deck-mounted and have a shower hose connection. The body is made of brass with a polished Chrome finish. The handles are plastichrome.
The recommended pressure is between 1 and 5 bar, although it will operate at a lower pressure (0.5 bars). NB: To achieve 0.5 bars with a gravity tank system you need a height drop of some 5 metres.
The width is some 28cms, the height of main body is 4cms, the depth of the main body is 6cms and the spout reaches some 7cms.
The taps come with Deck-mounting 'legs' which are attached to the rear of the taps using the nuts on the back of the taps. The distance between the centres of the 2 nuts is 150mm, however the distance between the inlet centres at the base of the 'pillar' legs is some 180mm (UK standard). The legs come with securing nuts/washers and measure approx 9 cms tall
The left control knob (as you look at the front of the taps) controls the water on/off/flow using a ceramic disc. The hot inlet is also on this side. The right control knob is the temperature control. This is Thermostatic for comfort and safety, and there is an override stop button set at 38 degrees C. The cold inlet is nearest this control knob.
This Valve will work on the following: Combination boiler / Gravity fed / Pumped hot water unvented hot water / Standard hot water cylinder type systems. The maximum unbalanced water pressure ratio is 5:1.
