Hi,

I have recently moved in to a new home and upstairs is a bath with a tap mixer shower. However nobody knows how it works.

There is the tap then a pipe coming from the middle of the tap to a shower head on the wall. There is no button or switch of any kind and pulling it twisting doesn’t work.

It has almost come on a couple of times but again nobody knows how.

2 Plumbers looked at it and said they have never seen that type of tap and quoted for new ones.
I will attach the picture below.
Thank you for taking the time to look at this for me.

Trying pushing or pulling the part where the hose connects into the tap. They can be stiff sometimes but I've seen a few that work that way.

What movement of the lever causes water to come out the tap?
Is it to lift the lever similar ot Kitchen sink taps?
If so does it lift even higher after water is coming out of the tap to divert to the Shower head?

I'll assume twisting to the left and to the right is hotter or cooler.

I`d say push down/ pull up to divert with left & right for hot & cold.
