    Hi there, just a quickie....

    Just been looking at a friend's shower which has very poor flow and temperature control. The marking on the front of the dial says "Leisure Thermostatic 723".

    I've googled this but can't find any reference to it. It looks about 15 to 20 years old and I suspect it's the Mira 723 thermostatic going by a different name.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Thanks
    Matt

    Are you sure it's Leisure? The 723 was originally made by Leonard who were taken over by Mira.

    I too visited the annals of Mira, Swidders, before putting up my original post, so I was aware of the Leonard link, but it definitely says "Leisure".

    Is there any way you could remove part of the casing or fittings to see if there's a manufacturer's stamp on it?

    I'm actually sad enough to know it. A neighbour of my fathers has a Leonard 723 fitted which I have serviced in the past and obtained Mira parts for it.

    Yes, I'll do that next time I'm round there, and take a photo as well.

    The Leonard 723 - what a name ......

    I can just picture myself installing one now: I open the box, take out the mixer valve, hose, and shower head, and then sit back with a satisfied smile when I find the complimentary packet of Old Virginia sellotaped to the riser rail.
