The Bathrooms to Love Collection from PJH Group has enhanced its showering category with the addition of a number of premium Mixer Showers, including two new models with a beautiful Brushed Brass finish.

Bathrooms to Love Brushed Brass Finish

Satisfying the growing trend for metallic-effect brassware and showers, both shower kits boast a high specification balancing quality with design. The flawless brushed finish allows for greater personalisation in bathroom schemes, especially when teamed with other brushed brass basin and bath taps, such as the ‘Pesca Brushed Brass’ range also from Bathrooms to Love.

Pictured here, this new thermostatic bar mixer shower includes two outlets – a generous 250mm, round, ultra slim shower head with brass arm and separate handset with riser kit. Featuring ‘Cool Touch’ technology to prevent scalding and an integrated ceramic diverter valve, this model guarantees excellent flow rates and great all round performance.

With a handy height adjustable main shower head and a 1.5m hose, this sleek, contemporary thermostatic mixer shower is the perfect choice for discerning customers looking for a premium showering solution.

Richard Eaton, Brassware Product Manager, PJH said: “Metallic-effect showers and taps, such as brushed brass, rose gold and copper, provide beautiful warm metal tones and will add a richness of texture against ‘cooler’ materials such as white sanitaryware, marble and concrete. Collectively, this all allows bathroom designers to achieve more of a bespoke look with the opportunity for greater creativity and a premium finish.”

Complete with a 10-year guarantee (body & finish), the new brushed brass mixer showers are now available from PJH’s Bathrooms to Love Collection and can be ordered via the PJH Partners Portal for next day delivery.

Flow regulators are devices that control the flow of water through our household appliances. They are manufactured here in the UK by Neoperl and are made in hundreds of sizes that can now be retro-fitted to taps and showers throughout the home, so everyone can now do their bit to save water and the energy that heats it.

Most taps will already include a flow control device at the end of the spout and it’s often only when in situ that one can identify whether the flow is too strong. We’ve all experienced a splashing cloakroom tap for instance where the flow is too fast for a smaller basin. Now the incumbent device can be easily removed and replaced with one that reduces the flow to a comfortable level. The same with showers, a valve shower often delivers far too much water and even a slight reduction adds up to a substantial water saving over the year.

Neoperl flow control device

Regardless of the prevalent water pressure, a flow regulator maintains a consistent water stream at the chosen flow rate. A typical flow regulator consists of three components, a housing, a seating area and a precision-ring. The flow is determined by the interaction between the seating area and the o-ring. As water flows through the device at a higher or lower pressure, the shape of the o-ring changes to restrict or release the flow of water.

This is demonstrated in an easy to understand way at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TktKkFck2cM&list=PLxg7O65GE0aJwYMVzOu1QJ13kP5zp2Q2B

As a spokesperson for Neoperl tell us, now is the time to look at both our own homes and advise your clients on this easy water-saving win.

“As clients spend more time working from home and adding home improvements in abundance, why not take the opportunity to talk with them about saving water too? Especially as we are all spending so much more time washing our hands resulting in many thousands more litres of water being washed down the plughole.

“It’s a really affordable solution to retro-fit a flow regulator, most consumers could do it themselves with a little advice. They simply need to be aware that flow regulators exist, obtain the right advice as to which regulator to fit to retain adequate performance and purchase a simple tool to fit it.”
