My shower mixer is connected to the mains only and i can not afford to connect to the tank as i think it is too far away, can i just fit a basic shower/tap mixer instead.
The cold water tank is in another part of the building so it will cost me too much to connect, should i just replace the shower unit for a basic shower/tap,could i attach it on the wall above the bath ? will it work? I think maybe it will be the cheapest option to just go down the basic route, which one would anyone suggest.
Yes you can, just make sure that the bath shower mixer is okay on mains pressure as some are only for gravity/tank fed systems.
Hope this helps.

It is actually illegal to fit a Bath shower mixer to the mains.
