Flexible tap tails with valves


C

Colin Wilson

I used to have a multipoint, and the old shower had a pressure
reducing valve on the cold feed - are valve-equipped flexible tails a
suitable replacement for restricting flow ?

(thinking of a tap/shower mixer instead of a seperate shower mixer)

Well, a pressure reducing valve isn't just a flow restrictor.
You can get thermostatic shows designed for the differential
and varying pressures from a multipoint/combi,
(thinking of a tap/shower mixer instead of a seperate shower mixer)
but possibly not as part of a tap/shower mixer.

I`m not sure what the unit was exactly, a white plastic lump with what
appeared to be a diaphragm and an adjusting screw underneath. I don`t
even know if i`d need something like that in place to make it easier
to control shower temperature (the cold has a much greater flow rate,
so the ability to reduce flow might make it easier to control) - any
loss of cold water flow to the bath itself wouldn`t be an issue as far
as i`m concerned.
