I have a combo boiler and mixer taps in the bathroom. The bath mixer tap is also a shower aswell as mixer tap. Works very well.. good pressure and heat mix etc.. no issues what so ever :)

Ps I even fitted it myself(the tap that is) :-)

We have a combi and all our taps are mixer taps. Works perfectly.

No problem , just think of your shower that you probably have already ,that's effectively a "mixer tap" -will work just fine .

No issues with using mixers. It's only the same as having 2 seperate taps except on the mixer they both go down the same taphead into the basin. Won't affect the combi at all.

Absolutely no problem whatsoever. Water flow from the boiler is not affected at all until the hot and cold pipes reach the mixer part of the tap.

Do you have a cold water storage tank in the loft? If you do, then a mixer tap is not suitable due to the pressure differences. I would have expected a cold water tank to have been removed though if there ever was one.

doubt it as the combination boiler will have been supplied by mains water wouldn't be used for the cold water as it will not be good for drinking etc.

I doubt it too but better to check. Depends how good (or lazy!) the boiler fitter was. Point being if cold is gravity fed from loft tank pressure will be unbalanced at mixer.

No boiler won't work on likely gravity head. Situation I found was bathroom had properly balanced hot and cold gravity fed when built. Combi installed removing hot cylinder and capping off all pipes keeping loft tank. Hot was then fed from combi boiler in kitchen on mains supply. Bathroom then had unbalanced supplies for hot and cold.
