    Hi, our bath mixer runs slow, worse on the hot tap, the sink which is on the same pipes just before the bath also has a mixer and they both run fine?
    The O rings are fine as new ish taps.

    Also hints or advise please?

    Check isolation valves are fully open,Could be partially blocked. A bit more info on the type of system would be useful.

    How many litres per minute do you get from the hot bath tap, and from the hot sink tap?

    Is it a stylish new bath tap?

    Do you have a combi boiler, or a water tank in the loft and a HW cylinder?
