Abstract

A multiple outlet water mixing unit (50) comprising a housing (45) having a hot water inlet (1) and a cold water inlet (2). The Unit also comprises a plurality of water mixer valves (65, 66) located within the housing (45) each supplied by the hot water inlet (1) and the cold water inlet (2) and supplying a respective water outlet (3, 4), each water mixer valve (65, 66) being operable to mix water received from the hot and cold water inlets in varying proportions, and at least one controller (51) to control the valves and hence the relative proportions of hot and cold water fed to each water outlet (3, 4). A shower unit (10) having at least one water dispensing means (30) and a water mixer (50) with hot and cold water inlets (1, 2) and a plurality of outlets (3, 4) is also disclosed.
