    Default Shower Mixer replacement

    We need to replace the old shower mixer .

    Any recommendations for a good mixer? Not too expensive, please.

    A 'friend' says 'Hansa' brand is good, but it is not cheap.

    A good and trustworthy plumber to go with will be great! We live in East Auckland.

    Thanks.

    Methven Futura Shower Mixer - you won't regret it
    I worked for everything I have. Most successful people have done the same thing.

    Methven.
    Or....methven.
    Or Methven.

    Forget nasty chinese imports. Methven.

    Some are a horrible price, but some are not that bad. Go into Chesters or Micos or FRanklins (Cheapest in Auckland) and have a look at the range.

    Guess where Methven get most of their taps and put them in Methven boxes. I know I fixed their machines especially the Swiss brass casting machine for 15 years.
    Its amazing how Potatoes give us chips,fries and Vodka.

    Get your s*** together every other vegetable.

    Yes, yes. However it's still a well made product.
    Husband has installed many mixers, shower, kitchen, whatever and still likes Methven and hates a lot of the junk you get in the chain stores cheap.

    We bought Methven here - bathroom shower and kitchen mixer, yes more than I could have paid, but she already had crap.

    I guess most these days are ceramic disc mixers, which is what you should get anyway. Remember the old adage ' You get what you pay for', so don't buy on price alone. And be sure you buy the right mixer, equal hot and cold pressure (mains pressure) or unequal pressure ( cylinder with Ajax/Nefa valve)

    I've fallen out of love with Greens. I have(had) Greens all through the house when we built it, but the ceramic washer on one of the taps failed (very unusual) and they couldn't replace it because they weren't using them anymore because they couldn't afford to get them certified in Australia (or some such bo****ks.)
    We are all but temporary files on the great HDD of life.

    Interesting, Greens seem to have a good rep with all the plumbers I deal with.
