I bought an UK shower while doing my refurbishment of the flat in Latvia. Unfortunately, only after the tiles and pipes were installed the plumber told us that the UK shower "doesn't fit".
This is quite annoying as you can imagine. Does anyone know if it's possible to get some kind of converter that would fix this? I would prefer to keep the existing shower if possible. I am looking for something that will connect to the existing pipe and make the connector to shower of the correct diameter. Is it possible at all and how difficult is to do such a thing? Would it leave us with ugly 5cm converter sticking out from the wall?
Here is the current temporary shower:
The new shower:
And its inside (note the ring inside):
- The shower product description is available here: http://www.victoriaplumb.com/Showers/Thermostatic-Shower-Valve-Sets/Traditional-Rain-Can-Riser-System_854.html
- The distance between the pipes seems to be correct but the existing pipes are too thick for our shower.
What would be the most reasonable solution in this case? Is making a converter possible in a way that would not be visible? Or perhaps we should simply return the entire shower and buy a new one?
