These valves can be Retro fitted to older shower panels of the same size specification providing provision is made to change the hoses to those with 15mm threaded connections as is required to connect to the shower valve.
The valve has Four Ports meaning it can output to four different shower options; hand shower, overhead and body jets, bath filler or foot massger being the typical set up.
The valve can be fitted as a replacement or upgrade to shower cabins or steam showers. It comes with threaded COLD WATER IN and threaded HOT WATER IN on the lower part of the body.
