Attempted to change a mixer shower. I turned the on the hot

Attempted to change a mixer shower. I turned the nuts on the hot and cold a few turn each in turn. Got so far and the nut sort of clicked then I kept turning and just going around and not untightening any further. Same on hot and cold. I've had to abort. They tightened again fine. Any ideas?Gavin

My old shower was a capsule style mixer. It started leaking

My old shower was a capsule style mixer. It started leaking from within the capsule so had to be replaced.Never had a problem with pressure.Hot water comes from hot water tank on same floor as shower. Cold water comes from feeder tank in the attic.The plumber first changed it for a similar style capsule mixer, but we assumed the mixer was faulty as it wasn't allowing the water to come through, only a few drops. I couldn't wait for a replacement to be delivered so the plumber replaced it with a bar style mixer shower because the diy shop had this style in stock. But now the pressure is really rubbish. It normally just stops flow mid shower.What should I do to get pressure back to what it was? If I replace it with a capsule style mixer shower would this make it as good as it was? There's definitely a good amount of pressure but it doesn't seem to be making it through the shower. I don't really understand why the shower mixer seems to be stopping the pressure.I physically saw the amount of water coming out of both the hot and cold water pipes before they were connected to the mixer so I know there is enough water coming into the mixer.

Today the sales adviser sent this email over to explain as

Hi James, so today the sales adviser sent this email over to explain as to why the showers have been placed the other way around:"The reason your Thermostatic shower is in your ensuite is because the council have stated that a certain amount of plots must have this ecological system called a Heat Recovery System in, to use less energy and to make some of the homes more energy efficient. The stacker for this system cannot tap into the waste system at the front of the house as it will not fit. It has to be tapped into the waste system at the back of the house which uses water directly beneath the ensuite. This system does not work with an electric shower it has to be a Thermostatic shower and has to be close to the waste system to be able to extract the heat, hence the reason the showers had to be swapped over. It will not affect a house that does not have the energy efficient Heat Recovery System. There are 2 sets of regulations that we are working to on the site and your house has been built to these regulations. "Does any of this make any sense to you? Is she actually describing a waste water heat recovery system? And is she right about what she says about the placement of the showers, of again is it pure excuses? TIA
