    hi
    i want a single lever tap for the basin and the bath. something like this at b&q looks good: s7g1.scene7.com/is/image/BandQ/0000003657737_001c_v001_zp?&$230x230_generic$

    however i also want a shower attachment in the bath and cant seem to find a single lever with the tap/shower switch all in one unit. the b&q range is "4 hole": s7g1.scene7.com/is/image/BandQ/0000003657751_001c_v001_zp?&$230x230_generic$

    i'm only using b&q as an example as i'll have anything (apart from those crazy italian prices...) but does this exist, i.e. a two hole solution for taps and shower head?

    thanks!!!

    Your links are ****, but they don't work anyway.

    DO NOT buy taps from B&Q, they are all Chinese rubbish now.

    Go to a decent bathroom showroom tomorrow and choose something decent, plenty around that will do the job...just check you have a HP system, most single head taps wont work on LP.

    thanks. i'll check next time i'm in bathstore.

    the links do work but need to be pasted in to browser. i tried to add the h-t-t-p so they would be clickable but this forum/website stripped out the characters.

    cheers

    Why not go for a wall mounted Bath Shower mixer.

    I have found a good system to be a Grohtherm 2000 with Talentofill.
