    Hi folks,

    Following on from my radiator questions (thanks for all the replies) here's my next set of questions !!!

    Had a look at the idea of:
    A- tile over tiles(not keen)
    B- fit Respotex or equivalent over it.
    C- rip it all off the wall, replace plasterboard with marine ply(+ tiles or Respotex) and diligently work around existing (concealed) TMV and outlet, or even better replace with external TMV etc
    D- leave it alone and have a beer....!

    I can remove all necessary fittings it seems bar the outlet to the shower hose, and I've a very funny feeling this is the Achilles heel to the job if I avoid option "C"

    It has no "decorative" covers so any work around it can be hidden, and I cannot see any way it can be removed. Seems to be fitted from inside the shower and fixed in the cavity off of dwangs/noggins where it is plumbed in. We had work done 11 years ago to re jig our downstairs plumbing (frozen pipes in a brand new house in the Scottish Highlands that was based on "scandinavian design" lol) and I thankfully took some photos of behind the TMV and can see where the descending pipe from the TMV to outlet is...maybe it can be unscrewed from in the cubicle I have no idea....

    Thanks again....!
