Following on from the shower repair query earlier this week, the shower
mixer was very corroded, and almost fell apart when I pried it open, so
I've had to fit a new one.
To get the shower back working I've had to do a bit of a bodge job, but
will rectify it later this week.
The existing mixer had its unions on full show.
The new one is a flush fit to the wall, so has been left for the
meantime around an inch out from the wall, until I have time to take out
a tile or 2 to get access to the rear panel, and cut back the feed
The new one is the same as this here:
What I'd like to know is what size are the unions that screw into the
In the ebay pic, the dog leg connector is the joint in question, the
larger end screws into the mixer body, and the smaller is a normal 15mm
compression thread, which is currently attached to the feed pipes.
It may be simpler to run the feed pipes directly into the body, so I'll
buy a few fittings this week to cover all angles.
Would the larger be a 22mm thread, or is it lileky to be an imperial
And are there any flexible fittings to make this job a doddle?
