Thermostatic shower valves explained

There really is nothing like waking up and jumping into a nice hot shower to help wake you up in the morning. But with so many options to pick from these days, how do you decide upon the right option?

When choosing the type of shower valve you want, you first need to decide upon what features you would like in your new shower. There is a sliding scale of options and combinations, from the very basic shower slider rail kits to fixed shower heads and even body jets.

Once you have chosen your shower, you’ll also need to invest in a suitable valve. Luckily, here at VictoriaPlum.com, we sell all our most popular showers together with thermostatic shower valves. But, before you buy, it’s a good idea to understand what each valve does:

Concealed or exposed?

An exposed valve has all its working parts on display, which can make a really nice feature. A concealed valve has its working parts hidden behind the wall, giving a clean, fresh look. The choice is yours.

The benefits of thermostatic valves

Thermostatic valves allow you to set the temperature of your shower, whilst maintaining the flow. So you get an invigorating shower that’s just right for you.

At VictoriaPlum.com, all our valve bodies are made from solid brass, a hardwearing material that’ll ensure your shower works perfectly for many years to come.
