    I want a matte black flush plate. The cistern is pneumatic.

    Do I have to get specific flush plates to match up to specific cisterns, or are they all interchangeable. As there are maybe only a couple of matte black flush plates that I have quick access to. Thanks

    You will need to speak to the company that made the toilet/cistern.

    Their official response is ‘it’s only tested with our products’.

    I’m looking for real world experience

    Thanks.

    About what I`d expect to be honest, translates to "We don`t know". :D

    It’s one of those where I doubt you’ll get a straight answer. Manufacturers won’t tell you any different because they want you to buy their products. I would imagine a lot of fitters won’t mix-and-match for fear of it coming back on them at a cost

    Being pneumatic in theroy as long as the bellows deliver the required air pressure to operate the valve you can mix n match.

    Just had a thought, don`t know if all the air hoses are a standard size to fit on the spigots behind the plates.

    I think it’s one of those OP where you might have to be the guinea pig and suck it and see

    With all seriousness, can you do this?

    I’ve been struggling to get a black shower waste (they are all chrome) which spoils the aesthetic.

    Can anyone point me in the direction to have chrome things being made black? I am in Glasgow.

    Thanks.

    You can`t anodize plastic such as the shower waste.
