How to choose your mixer valve
When choosing what type of mixer to buy, you will first need to decide on how many functions or shower heads you would like to have in your new enclosure. You can choose from a wide selection of fixed heads, rail kits with handset and body jets to create the ideal combination for you.
Concealed or exposed mixers
Once you have chosen your ideal combination, there are a few more things you will need to consider when selecting the perfect mixer valve. You can opt for a fully concealed system; where all the pipe work is recessed within the walls creating a very sleek look which works very well with any type of enclosure. This will allow you to choose one, two, or as many as three different outlets. The alternative option is an exposed system, where the mixer is surface mounted on to your tiles. Bar mixers are the most popular type of exposed valve and they work very well with a rail kit, making this combination very easy and simple to install and also a great value choice. You can also opt for an exposed combined system, where the mixer is fully integrated with a riser rail and attached handset, this works particularly well with any type of shower bath.
