Rated 2 out of 5 by from nuisance to fix eccentric fittings to get from wall to shower leaked, I suspect because thread had loads of serrations in. got a 3/4" bsp male fitting and attached shower straight to that. holes in wall have to be in the right place though, and the flange on the conical covers has to be ground down. in the the end it's a shower and it works. could have done without the hassle though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value Bought to replace similar shower in family bathroom. It only took about 20mins to swap them over. Cheaper than a replacement thermostatic valve for the old shower! the knobs are cheap plastic, but it works very well, glad to be able to have a hot shower. exceptional value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I am not a plumber but was able to fit this myself with ease, we have a low pressure system and this gives great performance and greatly improved from previous unit. Nice quality finish too, very pleased thanks.

Low Flow Rate?

The flow rate of 3ltr/min seems very low in comparison to most others of this type. Does this mean that the pressure of the shower jets are quite feeble when in use?
Asked by: Gammyleg
Thank you for your recent enquiry. The actual flow rate will be dependant on the water flow / pressure available to the unit as will be common with other Mixer Valve type products. In the case of a gravity fed system this will be governed by the head of water available. If for example with the minimum 1 mtre head of water then around 3 ltres per min would be quite typical for a bar mixer valve.

Does it work on low pressure system

My water tank is in the loft and it is approx 1 metre above the shower head. Using online assumptions this gives a 0.1 bar pressure has anyone fitted to similar and if yes does it preform
Asked by: PeterP2812
Thank you for your recent enquiry. The Luca Bar Mixer Valve will operate on a 0.1 bar, however this is the minimum head and so only basic performance with regards to flow performance will be achieved. Regards, Karl.

MY HOT AND COLD ARE THE OPOSITE TO YOUR INSTRUCTIONS-CAN I TURN YOUR SHOWER HEAD AROUND TO THEN MATCH

Asked by: SIMPLY
Thank you for your recent enquiry. The Luca Bar Mixervalve should only be fitted in its correct orientation - ie with the hose from the base whch would mean hot to the left and cold to the right as viewed from the front. The pipe work therefore would need to be changed accordingly. Fitting the valve effectively upside down will affect the products warranty and we would not be able to confirm the life span of the unit as it has not been tested under such conditions long tem.

What are the main components made from

The valve, hose and head.... Are they brass and chrome or plastic?
Asked by: Barby1262
Thank you for your enquiry, apologies firstly for the delay in our reply. There have been a few initial set up problems with the Q&A service that we have recently joined. The Luca Mixer Valve is made up from a number of different materials as follows : Bar Mixer Brass with Chrome plating finish, Control Knobs are plastic with a chrome finish. The Hose has a PVC liner with metal sheath. The Shower Head is Plastic. I hope that this information is of help.
