    Thermostatic Bath Shower Mixer (Wall or Surface Mount)

    Thermostatic Bath Shower Mixer (Wall or Surface Mount)

    Finally Found What I Was Looking For!

    I've been hunting for a good quality, thermostatic mixer tap/shower for a while now. The problem has always been that they are either far too expensive (unjustifiably so), or just too damned ugly. But then I found this one. What a beauty! Modern, solid, well made, looks lovely and best of all, it works like a peach. Our boiler has just been changed to a Combi, so pressure has increased and this mixer kicks out a beautifully stable and easy to adjust flow. Something I did like was that I could adjust the "base temperature" setting. What do I mean? On the temp control, like all good thermostatically controlled mixers, you have a "High Temp" stop. This stops you from accidentally winding the temperature up far too high and scalding yourself. To move the temp passed the stop, you must press a button as you rotate the tap. The tap head can be removed, then rotated and refitted. So I set the temperature at my perfect level, then removed the tap and rotated it so that it was at the "High Temp" stop point and refitted it. Now, when I switch the shower on, I just leave it at that point and voila, perfect every time with no adjustment necessary. The switch between Tap and Shower works well too. A simple lift and twist of the disc on top of the mixer valve to lock it in shower mode. The tap also comes with wall / bath fittings, so however you want to mount it, it should fit. The shower head itself is one of those modern slender cylindrical heads. It's plastic, so only time will tell how it holds up, but I must admit to being very surprised and impressed at the spray pattern. Plenty of flow, in a perfect fan shape. I had really expected to bin it and get a more conventional round headed model, but nope, it works beautifully. Very pleased. Great tap/shower. Great purchase. At a very good price.

    Fantastic Tap

    I couldn't recommend this tap more. Apart from being exactly what I wanted style-wise, I was very pleasantly surprised by its quality. It looks and feels way more expensive. Thanks VP, great purchase!

    For me the product is ideal. Can control the hot and cold water using the one tap which is very handy when ones' hands are wet and perhaps soapy . A very good buy.

    I like the one tap control with the swivel for either basin. Works well. It would be very useful if you did supply the name of a local plumber to carry out the work. I had considerable difficulty in getting one locally.

Which Bathroom Tap should you choose?

Posted on: 14th May 2014

The taps you choose for your bathroom can have a major effect on the overall look and functionality of your bathroom fittings. Whether you're designing a new bathroom from scratch, replacing worn taps or simply looking to spruce up your bathroom with a new look, it usually pays to think carefully about which types of tap are best for your own tastes and requirements. For a full and comprehensive explanation of the different types of bathroom tap available, please read on! Pillar Taps Pillar taps generally take the form of two separate taps. One draws hot water and the other cold and the two flow separately into the bath or basin. It's as simple as that! Mixer Taps Mixer taps also draw water from both the hot and cold pipes but mix the two flows before they emerge from a single spout. It's generally far easier to achieve the correct temperature using a mixer tap and they can help prevent drawing water that is scalding hot or too cold. Some bath mixer taps also incorporate a shower mixer, allowing you to switch the water flow from the taps themselves to a shower attachment. Mixer taps are generally better for those who use their baths frequently, as you can mix the flow to the desired temperature before allowing your bath to fill up. This is a safer option for families with small children, where filling the bath with scalding hot water first could be dangerous. To improve safety even further there is the option of a thermostatic bath mixer tap, ensuring a consistent water temperature

5 Benefits of using Mixer Taps in the Bathroom

Posted on: 5th Dec 2013

The traditional way of filling a bath or running water into a sink involves two taps. One is connected to the hot water supply and the other to the cold water supply. In a mixer tap, you still draw from the hot and cold sources but these are combined into a single flow and come out of a single spout. Here are five benefits that mixer taps can bring to your bathroom: 1. Style Many people prefer the sleek and streamlined look of a mixer tap to that of separate hot and cold taps. There are a wide range of mixer tap styles available. They may have sharp, contemporary lines or be curved with a classic arch shape. The handles too can vary, from traditional rotating handles to levers that are lifted up and down to control the flow. If you fancy a wall mounted mixer tap, these are available too. 2

Contemporary Basins and Mixer Taps: What to look for

Posted on: 28th Oct 2013

Although a bath may be the centre focal point for many bathrooms, the basin is used far more regularly and as such, is an important part of any choice of suite. In fact, the wide range of basin styles, their supporting structure and the taps that go with them, means you can mix and match to make your bathroom a uniquely personalised design. Traditional styles based on Victorian originals are still immensely popular but modern, contemporary designs offer a varied choice when it comes to both stylistic decisions and functional design. It is certainly the contemporary basin and mixer tap combinations that are the most exciting elements when designing a modern bathroom, so what should you be looking for? Choices Victoria Plumb has a wide range of top-end designs that offer high quality materials and workmanship while being extremely affordable. Choosing a basin design that sits on a counter top, can allow for a wide range of flexibility. Whereas a traditional pedestal style basin can suit period homes and more traditional suites, those looking for a more modern and practical solution can pick and choose between different solutions; from counter tops that feature semi recessed basins through to glass or marble structures with a choice of basin styles on top. Taps The style of tap you choose doesn't simply reflect an overall design choice, as it can be a standout feature that brings its own unique slant to a suite – although it must still fulfil a vital function. A mixer tap should provide hot and cold water in exactly the proportions you want with an easy-to-use mechanism. That's why all our taps at Victoria Plumb are manufactured to the highest specifications, utilising the latest ceramic disc technology. There are as many styles of contemporary basin taps as there are basins themselves, and the chance to mix and match means that you can come up with your own unique combinations

Bathroom taps from Victoria Plumb

The bathroom and kitchen are perhaps the two most-used rooms of the house, as they provide the setting for those essential daily tasks. It is no wonder that many people choose to decorate these rooms using design-conscious furnishings which are as attractive as they are practical.

Taps are a popular furnishing that can are used to complement the overall look of these rooms and can also be a key focal point, rather than just simply performing their essential function of providing water to your kitchen or bathroom basin.

Here at Victoria Plumb, we supply a wide range of kitchen and bathroom taps, including mixer taps and thermostatic taps, to suit all specifications. All of the taps in our collection of unique ranges incorporate a certain style, whether traditional taps or contemporary taps, to offer a solution for bathrooms and kitchens decorated in different styles.

Kitchen Taps for a Contemporary or an Ultra Modern Decor

Kitchen taps are sometimes overlooked for their aesthetic qualities, and how much they can contribute to the ambience of a kitchen. It is for this reason that there are now so many options available for homeowners to choose from when decorating their kitchen, so there is guaranteed to be something available to suit all personal tastes and budgets.

Contemporary kitchen tap designs are available from Victoria Plumb allowing customers to make a statement in their kitchen and offer something simple and sleek to complement a contemporary decor.

Innovative Thermostatic Taps

Thermostatic taps contain a temperature-control valve for both hot and cold water. Thermostatic taps are therefore made with comfort and convenience in mind for the bather,  in the same way as the thermostatic mixer shower valves they help to prevent water from becoming too hot and scalding the bather or becoming too cold and uncomfortable.

At Victoria Plumb, we provide wall-mount and surface-mount thermostatic bathroom taps which provide ample temperature and pressure control for the bather; contributing to an all-round more comfortable and enjoyable bathing experience.
