Bristan VAL BSM C CD Lever Bath Shower Mixer : The mixer taps are excellent and can highly recommend

I knew that bristan is a reliable quality tap manufacturer, and was replacing a bristan fitting, so was confident this shower mixer would fit, which it did. Arrived promptly, and was half the price of buying direct from the bristan website.

Work amazingly well works perfectly. Super impressive case very functional. Received quickly great price good quality good quality and good product.

Ideal for weak hands or upgrade bath taps. Easy to install – as long as you can reach under the bath. (used speedfit flexi hoses)taps themselves are weighty and movement of taps smooth. The shower attachment screws on easily and is light, so is the shower head. The shower holder has screws and plug supplied – which i used. Careful not to over tighten or you will crack the plastic. Tighten up everything and slip in the shower head. Because it is light in weight you can easily adjust it and won’t hurt if you drop it on your foot or head. Lift the knob for shower and switch off water the knob drops back down. Not thermostatic – so mix water first before lift shower diverter. Here are the specifications for the Bristan VAL BSM C CD Lever Bath Shower Mixer:

  • Operates on a minimum operating pressure of 0.2 bar, maximum of 7.0 bar.
  • Supplied with metal backnuts.
  • Supplied with 3″ (76MM) metal levers.
  • Supplied with 1.5m hose, handset and wall bracket.
  • 1/4 Turn 3/4″ Ceramic disk valves.
  • Flow rate -20.9 litres per minute @ 0.4 bar pressure.
  • Inlet connection 3/4 BSP.
  • Suitable for all plumbing systems within specified operating pressures.
  • Chrome Plated to BS EN 248.

Looks good and works well, rather than risk messing up i had a plumber install it,.

The unit was easy to attach and does what it says on the tin but the shower head is plastic and pretty flimsy, so a slight disappointment.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • The mixer taps are excellent and can highly recommend

  1. The mixer taps are excellent and can highly recommend. The mixer taps are excellent and can highly recommend. The shower head though is cheap and water force through it is weak so i purchased another shower head and it’s all working very well.

    Good quality, well made and easy to fit. . Bit of a weird foam-like ‘base-seal’ that i wasn’t expecting, but it goes in easy enough. Shower head is a little cheap – plastic, unlike everything else, but it works very well. Took me about an hour to fit, but i have push-fit which made it all too easy.
