The Blue basin mixers

Engineered to use less water and energy thanks to features like the flow regulator and the fact that less water is held in the tap when it is off. And by saving energy and water, it saves you money.

By reducing the amount of water held in the Blue fitting by 80%, there is less water to flush through. That also means there is 80% less water in the tap to stagnate and allow bacterial growth. The flow regulator reduces water consumption from 9 to 5 litres per minute without any noticeable loss of flow, as water is mixed with air.

Satisfied customers

I recently used Merlin Bathrooms to repair a shower which had leaked and caused serious damage to the wall behind the tiles.

Having accepted their very reasonable quote, they commenced the repair work very quickly. The shower now looks and works better than ever, and I was very impressed with the workmanship. I am happy to recommend Merlin Bathrooms to anyone who wants a prompt, good quality job at a reasonable price.
