We exposed this old shower valve as the homeowner wanted it renewed. The trouble with older showers is that the spares may become obsolete and then sourcing them becomes difficult as the spares stock deplete. In this case the customer supplied a new model so we didn’t need to source spares. Luckily, they had a spare couple of white tiles to replace that removed. So we were off to a great start.
The new valve was fitted and the plasterboard repaired where it had broken away whilst trying to gain access when removing the tile. All relatively straightforward for us. Shower designs come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. This picture shows a concealed design. They look great and are reliable on the whole. The downside is that if they need renewing then it can be a bigger task than if renewing an exposed model.
All tiled and cleaned up ready for service. SHAPE Contractor Heating & Plumbing are Andover’s local heating and plumbing company. Mira, Bristan and Aqualisa showers are just a few of what we install. Give us a call on Andover 01264 748041 or email: email@example.com We’re here to help.
