How To... Replace A Bath Shower Mixer Tap


This tutorial/how to is for instructional purposes only.

Plumbingwerx accepts no responsibility, or liability for any injury/damage caused to persons/property due to the use, or misuse, of information on this website.

If for any reason don’t feel confident in what you’re doing, please call someone who can do this for you. Whilst the danger from domestic plumbing work is relatively low, it can on occasion lead to long-lasting, and expensive, property damage, and/or personal injury.

Always perform an appropriate risk assessment, and stay safe.

Before you read any further, it has been brought to my attention (on 29/04/2020) that within this video is a non-compliance with the Water Regulations, and that the pipework should be fitted with suitable backflow prevention. I debated removing the video completely, but decided against it for the following reasons:

1/ I don't mind admitting when I have made a non-compliance error, and want everyone to see that no matter how much you try to remember, even trained, and qualified professionals will still sometimes forget things,

2/ It helps demonstrate that the plumbing industry is more than just "piping something up",

3/ The tutorial is still relevant, and does take you through an easy to follow step by step process of how to replace a bath shower mixer tap,

4/ It gives me a great way to introduce this written section, and remind everyone to also add in suitable backflow prevention on the pipework.
