    Hi all,

    I've a Shower mixer to help a handyman to install,
    The shower is a Maina: https://www.diy.com/departments/maina-chrome-effect-mixer-shower/1618581_BQ.prd
    It seems like a poor product, but I've got it and would like to give it a try. It looks like I need to replace the z connectors with a wall mount fixing kit for the pipes.

    What I can't work out is how to make sure the wall mount fixing kit is the right diameter outlets for the shower mixer inlets.

    Is this a standard size?
    If it's not - can you advise me where to measure?

    Many thanks, much appreciated, Stephen

    All you probably need to do is unthread the water conns & screw the new straight on.
    The standard width of all bar type mixers is 150mm centre to centre. The connection s will be 3/4 inch bsp
