Hi all...
Want to fit a thermostatic shower mixer bar with bottom 1/2" fitting. However hot n cold have been fitted wrong way round. Is there a simple solution?
I was thinking to get one with a top 1/2"fitting and turn it round. Would this work?
Thanks legepe

I am assuming the 1/2 inch fitting you refer to is where the shower hose screws on.
There are two fittings which connect to 15mm pipe at the back which are a standard distance apart (150mm)
If you turn the bar mixer so its upside down it may look a bit odd but it should work.

Thanks for reply.. I managed to find the inlet pipes in the loft so I guess it's just a matter of swapping them over. I can see why the plumber has fitted them wrong because one has been cut short n needs extending to swap over

Plumber should have sorted it and not left it like that. Or done your solution. Pfft. Always check everything before you pay.
