I bought a cheapo shower of ebay becasue my old one broken and I.m Skint.

I don't see how to fix it to the wall. I can get a nut to go on the ends ( look at pictures) but then the tap end feeds wont fit on because thickness of the tiled wall. The shower came with no fittings other than what you can see in pictures.

Any help would be nice other wise i wasted £35.

hi, normally the pipe feeding these mixers should have been fixed to the wall, maybe with a wing back elbow. the mixer you have then fixes to the pipe with compression nut and olive.
the one you have have dog leg type fitting to adjust the diff pipe width (gap)

Thanks JohnD


I will buy them as soon as i got some money. Its a cavity wall, 9mm plaster board with tile on 1 side. This is the kind of thing which should be included with it when you buy these things.

I'm afraid to say i already bodged it temperaly that is. Until i can buy those fittings of screwfix. But in all fairness to meself, i ain't had a shower for 2 bloody weeks.

Wish i had the money to pay you plumbers cause at least you know what you doing.

Oh & just out of interest my old shower was a wicks, which used the cold to pump the hot (so it said on box ) and it was my 3rd one. It kept running hot water after it turned off. They stop selling them now. Anyone else experiened this?
