    Hello,

    I need to replace my traditional style exposed shower valve, as it's dripping and not fixed to the wall properly (all grub screws are corroded, and it wont come apart to access the mounting)

    It has a distance of 130mm between the inlets, and 22m inlets. Most of what I have seen available are 150mm between inlets and 15mm inlets.

    I really want a straight replacement, as I don't want to have to mess with the shower tiles...

    Has anyone had this issue before and can they help - is there a replacement for the above on the market?

    All help appreciated.
    Thanks
    Geoff

    A photograph and/or details of the existing shower valve would be really helpful here....

    Are you sure the pipes are 22mm?? You can get a 15mm shower valve with adjustable inlets. Between 130-155mm. Not sure about 22mm tho

    I wonder if the "inlets" are 1/2" tap connectors.

    Are you measuring the pipe? It's not shown in your photo.

    Any further help appreciated

    Geoff,
    I have the exact same shower and the exact same problem! Did you ever find who makes it or a suitable replacement?

    Not completely, but found a thermostatic shower valve manufactured by ultra finishing on ebay with 130 - 150 centres, but there could not find anything with 22mm inlets.

    I had access the pipes from behind the shower via a stud wall to reduce the pipes to 15mm...a pain but all works fine now...

    Good luck!
