lovely product

13 March 2014
The valve that we bought is a replacement, as the other one has only been installed for about 3 years and already had replacement cartridges. We actually bought a different make but the connections are not the same as the Bath store and it would mean major works to be carried out, so lets hope this one lasts a bit longer, going by the previous one I'm not holding my breath .
I am sorry to hear that you have had issues with the shower valve, from our records I can see that it was purchased from us September 2008.

From your feedback it sounds as though you have had problems with the thermostatic cartridge, this does require some periodic maintenance, to prolong the life of the product, it can be subject to scale / debris that builds up.

The shower valve is supplied with installation and maintenance information, but should you wish, you can trouble shoot through any issue or seek advice on the products by speaking to the brassware team on 08000 23 23 23 option 1.

Kind regards

This is a very high quality product. The look and feel are excellent. It also works exceptionally well off my combi boiler (with suitable pressure reducing valve in the cold feed).

We had a Bathstore Bentham shower tap fail after just three years (the internal plastic mechanism collapsed). Shody, poor quality products with no after-market spares on any of the poor quality items we purchased for our extension in 2009.

I am very sorry to hear that you are unhappy with the quality of the shower valve. As the cartridge is a consumable part it has a 12 month warranty, and should it fail within this period, we would have replaced it free of charge. Should you have any further queries in relation to the shower valve, please contact our Brassware helpline on 08000 232323 option1 and they can provide technical support and some spares for our current valves.

So Far

15 May 2012
This is the 3rd shower valve of this type that I have bought which perfectly illustrates how good I think that they are.

Good so far! And in the sale too, so even better.

The hardware is fine, but does not fit. I have tried to contact the Oxford Bathstore to arrange pick up but no-one has replied.
