The most common size is 1/2" copper x 3/8" compression.
The 1/2" side connects to the water line sticking out of the wall. The 3/8" compression is connected to the supply line on your faucet

No hot water in sink and shower

it sounds like 1(or more) of the motorised valves arent working.find the valve and make sure you are getting power to it via a tester,if so then it probably needs the head on the motorised valve changed

I need a divert valve to fit a 15mm shower head pipe, for a hand shower facility . I have all bathroom fixtures in gold and a valve in gold would be a bonus. Thanks

The piece you need is readily available at most hardware outlets like Lowes and Home Depot. The piece probably is not gold ( since that would cost over $1000 but polished brass. Ask one of the sales staff to give you the correct size (typical sizes are 1/2 inch and 5/8 inch. Take the shower head with you so you be sure you get the correct size.
