    Guys, friend in work has the attached tap that is not working. He has only just moved into the place. Boiler is a combi and all other taps have good flow and pressure. The bath mixer is giving poor flow and pressure in both shower mode and tap mode. Even down to it going hot and cold during the poor shower experience he has managed to stabilize this error by running the hot tap in the bathroom. Does anyone know what tap the attached is and is it servicable? I in the past have stripped Mira's down and Bristan's and given a good clean and normal service resumed looking to do the same on this one potentially or perhaps by a new complete unit if this one is of questionable quality.

    Thanks as always.

    There could be filters on the inlet.

    However, you need to examine the whole system and see what the pressure/flows are available.

    Also the boiler needs to be considered.
