Anyone who's got this able to tell me how it fits? It looks you need four holes and the shower hose coils under the bath?

Never mind, seen it described elsewhere as 'four hole bath shower mixer' there's even a five hole version..... never seen a bath with more than two, do you have to drill the others yourself?

seriously 0.5 bar max pressure? seems awful low.

That will be min not max.

The shower is telephonic shower. I have similar one. It is good for those who take a bath especially for women washing hair rather than standing and taking a shower. When you take a shower lot of water from the wall will spill through the hole where the shower head rests. So I am thinking of sealing it - but then the shower head cannot be seated to its hole and the shower hose can no more coil under the shower.

Id always assumed (perhaps wrongly), that when you pulled the shower hose completely up the bottom of the hose had some sort of plug that sealed the hole.. if it doesn't it seems like it should!

You could use Sugru to make a 'plug' on the shower hose near the end, in a cone shape round the hose getting wider further down the hose, gently push it into the hole and remove to let set, then you should be able to pull it up once its set and plug the hole! Once doen dry it off, and push the plug back out from the top, coil it all and store the shower as normal.

Hope that makes sense.

Wouldn't expext to get much more than that out of a gravity fed system.

Need one of these.

Hi Sam, This advice makes sense and I hope this will help me. Great idea mate! oO The Sugru packs looks small - from your experience, how many do you think would need to do this task? I am going to speak to my plumber if this needs to be done from under the bath, as it is all enclosed. Thanks.:D

Then why the "suitable for all baths with low pressure water systems"?

You feeding cold water from a tank?

FWIR when it was last measured (about 7 years ago) on the cold mains where i live we are getting about 3-4 bar at the tap

It's suitable for .5 bar - i.e. 'suitable for low pressure water systems'.
That doesn't mean .5 bar max and only suitable for low pressure systems

Low pressure taps work on all systems though may need a pressure reducer fitted if installed on very high pressure systems (I myself have high pressure and a low pressure kitchen tap that 'splashes' out of the sink if turned straight to full) whereas high pressure taps are the limited ones, i.e. useless trickle and sometimes leading to airlocks on low pressure water supplies.

Low pressure = gravity fed = .1 bar to .5 bar
High pressure = mains pressure = 1 bar to 9 bar

And remember, we're talking hot water pressure here, cold water supplies are pretty much always direct from mains.

lol not sure i answered it but your clarification does just fine. if only they had put that in the description

Surely a bath will always have a minimum of three holes, two taps and one plug!

I wouldn't say it's a glitch!

The price is down cos they know it's not worth more than £25

I should've expected that X) anyway... you forgot the overflow

Rolltops sometimes dont have overflows!

Ordered the single taps when in stock, but got a call from b &q stating the price was an error and no stock available. Shame, great price.

mine arrives today (order yesterday after a 3 hole set I order went out of stock). They certainly look nice but am yet to get them fitted but for 20 quid, they are a steal compared to some uglier, more expensive taps.

yes you do.

Just so you know I ordered 5 taps from the opulent range and although payment was taken they were not in stock and my order was cancelled

still waiting for mine
