    Built-in

    A built-in shower valve has all the mechanism and pipework concealed within the wall, with only the controls themselves exposed. With this shower valve type, you can have flexibility in where you mount it - for example, mounting it away from where the water falls means you can turn on the water to warm up, without getting wet.

    Exposed

    The most common shower valve type is where the valve itself is exposed. If you just want to upgrade your shower and you don't want to re-tile, this is often a practical solution.

    Single lever

    Single lever shower mixers have only one control for both flow and temperature to give a clean look. Usually you push/pull the control for flow and twist it to control the temparature.

    Dual control

    Dual control shower valves have two separate controls for temperature and flow, so once you have your favourite temperature selected, it's set up already for next time.

    Thermostatic

    This kind of shower valve maintains the same temperature thermostatically, so that even if someone turns on a tap or flushes a toilet elsewhere in the house, it doesn't suddenly run hot or cold in the shower.

    Shower pack

    Shower packs contain both a shower mixer and a kit, for a complete solution.
