Proflow Altera Deck Mounted Bath Shower Mixer with Handset Kit


A beautifully versatile range of taps that effortlessly blend elements of the modern, square style with a softer, more rounded look. The Proflow Altera range of taps are a top quality offering with ceramic disc technology, a 5 year guarantee, and a range of basin and bath options. Proflow Altera taps are manufactured by Crosswater Holdings, a renowned bathroom brand with many years of experience. As such they are very high quality, with excellent flow rates and quality chrome-plating.

These taps are specifically made to work well even on low pressure gravity systems. A general rule of thumb with brassware is that only taps that are more expensive perform well on the UK's low pressure water systems. The Altera range, however, is not only great with lower pressures, it is also available at a low price. This bath shower mixer is suitable for use with combi-boilers, gravity systems, pumped or un-vented. Its flow rate at low pressure (0.2 bar) is 12.5 litres per minute. We consider anything over 10-15 to be good for low-pressure taps with ceramic disc cartridges

Features:
• Crafted from brass and zinc with polished chrome finish
• Suitable for all plumbing systems
• Minimum 0.5 bar water pressure is recommended for optimal performance
• Maximum 5.0 bar water pressure is recommended
• Ceramic disc technology for a smooth and leak-free performance
• Independent controls for hot & cold supply
• Waste sold separately
• 5 year warranty

The bath shower mixer includes:
• Fixed bath spout
• 2 tap hole bridge mixer
• Single function microphone shower handset
• Wall bracket handset holder
• Dual control handles
• Diverter button to switch from bath tap to shower outlet
• Shower hose
• 3/4" deck mounting unions

Minimum Water Pressure

Your water pressure depends on your home's water system. It’s important to consider water pressure when buying a new tap or shower. Buying a product with a minimum water pressure that’s too high for your home will result in poor performance.

- With a combi boiler you can usually expect between 1 and 2 bar

- With a gravity system (cold water tank in attic) you may have as little as 0.1 or 0.2 bar upstairs, and perhaps 0.5 bar downstairs

- With a high pressure unvented system (hot water cylinder, no cold water tank) you will generally have between 1 and 3 bar

You can install an item with a low minimum pressure rating on a high pressure system, but avoid installing an item with a high minimum rating on a low pressure system! Read our guide to water pressure to learn more.

Taps use either a ceramic disc cartridge or a rubber compression washer to control flow. Rubber washers will naturally wear down with use, and the tap handle will require more and more rotations to turn on or off. On the plus side, it's very easy to replace a rubber washer and they're available everywhere. 

Ceramic disc cartridges need only a 90-degree rotation to fully open or close, and the 2 ceramic plates are incredibly hard-wearing and resilient. They're more expensive to make, but they allow for a huge range of designs, easy operation and simple maintenance if needed.

Whilst it is rare for a ceramic cartridge to need replacing, you may very occasionally need to remove and rinse the cartridge if grit or debris within the water system is preventing the 2 plates from closing properly. Much like replacing a rubber washer, this is a quick and easy job, and will ensure many years of use.
