Discuss Where can I get a longer one of these please. It's from a tri flow tap with BW100 filtration system in the Plumbing Forum area at UKPlumbersForums.co.uk.

    Hi all,
    This is the internal thread in my tri flow mixer, it is what the filtered water runs through and it also is what locks the tap to the sink. Unfortunately its too short and I don't know a) what it's called and b) how I can order a longer one so I can fit my new tap.

    Help please

    Hi Mark,

    If that's from a shower mixer you could contact showerdoctor directly and send them a couple of picture too. They surely can help you out as they are quite good at it.

    I wouldn't know where to get this part directly so best try would be with showerdoc . send them a pic of the shower mixer or tap and most likely they will sort you out. Perhaps thinking of changing the whole lot rather than servicing

    It's from a sink mixer tap, three way. One for hot, cold and this skinny one for filtered water to drink. It has different threads too and bottom hence the hard challenge to replace

    It would need to be an extra 4 cm longer than it currently is as the work surface is much thicker than normal. Worst case is I'll have to chisel down some of the work surface to make it thinner so I can get the retainer screw on it
