    Benefit of an exposed shower valve.

    Bathroom Specialists

    I am considering having a new shower installed and I’ve heard about the option of an exposed shower valve. How much more does this cost over having an exposed valve fitted, on average? Overall, is it worth it?

    An exposed shower valve is better for me because you can easily access it and change it without too much effort.

    In areas of hard water, where limescale is present, you will have to change it in a few years.

    "An exposed shower valve will work out cheaper cause of less work involved. You don’t have to bury pipes in the wall. You just have two chrome pipes running down the wall from the attic which looks ok. Providing you have an attic above the bathroom."

    "Shower was not made with an exposed valve. If the main water shut-off valve is not working, it is added to the water coming into the bathroom. Normally, an extra hot and cold water valve should be added at home."
