    Hi All,

    I am looking at buying this shower for our new bathroom:

    https://www.plumbingforless.co.uk/s...rmostatic-perfect-shower-set-chrome-34408-000

    I am looking to have the shower thermostat & On/off face plate mounted 6 ft away from the shower head and hand held shower so it can be turned on without having to get into the shower.

    Can this be done with this type of shower? If not what type/style of shower do I need to look for?

    Thanks
    Colin

    That can be done with that shower. No problem at all. It’s just a case of bringing a hot and cold to the shower unit. Then the unit will have two outlets, one for the hand shower and other for the fixed head. Run the pipe work to these two and you’re away!

    @Wahreo - That is what I thought, just wanted to check I was correct and not missing something obvious. Thanks.

    Good showers those. I have the Grohe Smart Control in my place feeding a Bath and rim mounted handset. And another Grohe in the main shower along with Grohe wall mounted taps.
