We've hand-picked these items because they are a great choice alongside the Vado Velo Rigid Riser Shower Kit with Exposed Thermostatic Shower Valve, Fixed Head and Handset

For a sleek and stylish shower enclosure, why not choose the Velo shower kit by Vado. Not only will you receive an invigorating fixed shower head with air-injection technology, you'll also get a beautiful matching shower handset for those times when you just don't want the hassle of getting your hair wet during the morning rush. The handset can also slide up and down the rigid riser rail to tailor to the different heights of your family. There's also a rounded exposed thermostatic shower valve that's finished in chrome for a contemporary look you'll love.

The exposed thermostatic shower valve controls both outlets so you can quickly and easily divert water between the shower head and handset, giving you ultimate flexibility to your shower time. The thermostatic cartridge will ensure your showering temperature remains the same, even if someone flushes a toilet or turns on a tap.

You can also add on an H2Eco flow regulator to control and regulate the water flow to your shower heads without hindering the performance or the design of the product. This could not only save you £360 on your utility bills in one year, it also helps reduce your carbon footprint.

Features:
  • Shower package comes with: Velo round thermostatic exposed shower valve with an integrated diverter and rigid riser kit, a round 254mm fixed shower head, a rounded single-function shower handset and a hose
  • H2Eco Flow Regulator (optional extra - 2 are required)
  • 1.0 Bar minimum water pressure required
  • 15 year guarantee
  • H1110 x D572 x W288mm

Temperature Control Thermostatic

Taps use either a ceramic disc cartridge or a rubber compression washer to control flow. Rubber washers will naturally wear down with use, and the tap handle will require more and more rotations to turn on or off. On the plus side, it's very easy to replace a rubber washer and they're available everywhere.

Ceramic disc cartridges need only a 90-degree rotation to fully open or close, and the 2 ceramic plates are incredibly hard-wearing and resilient. They're more expensive to make, but they allow for a huge range of designs, easy operation and simple maintenance if needed.

Whilst it is rare for a ceramic cartridge to need replacing, you may very occasionally need to remove and rinse the cartridge if grit or debris within the water system is preventing the 2 plates from closing properly. Much like replacing a rubber washer, this is a quick and easy job, and will ensure many years of use.

This indicates how many water outlets you can pair with your shower valves. Choosing valves with more outlets will give you flexibility over the number of products you can add to your shower. 

Each outlet from your shower valve will divert water to the section of your shower that needs it, so each extra outlet allows you to add another product. For example: with 1 outlet you could have just a fixed shower head. 2 outlets will allow you to have a fixed shower head and shower handset. 3 will allow both of these with the addition of a body jet.

Minimum Water PressureMore information 1

Your water pressure depends on your home's water system. It’s important to consider water pressure when buying a new tap or shower. Buying a product with a minimum water pressure that’s too high for your home will result in poor performance.

- With a combi boiler you can usually expect between 1 and 2 bar

- With a gravity system (cold water tank in attic) you may have as little as 0.1 or 0.2 bar upstairs, and perhaps 0.5 bar downstairs

- With a high pressure unvented system (hot water cylinder, no cold water tank) you will generally have between 1 and 3 bar

You can install an item with a low minimum pressure rating on a high pressure system, but avoid installing an item with a high minimum rating on a low pressure system! Read our guide to water pressure to learn more.
