What is a mixer tap?

A mixer tap is indispensable in both the bathroom and the kitchen. They provide you with the right water temperature by mixing hot and cold water, so you can always enjoy comfortable water use.

A typical mixer tap consists of a single lever or knob that allows you to control the water supply and temperature. By turning the lever to the left or right, you can adjust the ratio between the hot and cold water. By moving the lever up or down you can regulate the water supply, from completely closed to completely open.

Mixer taps are designed to easily and accurately obtain the desired water temperature. They are often equipped with a thermostat to keep the temperature consistent even when the water pressure changes. This allows you to get hot water quickly and easily without having to manually adjust the hot and cold taps.

Mixer taps are available in different styles, finishes and sizes, so they can be adapted to the design of a bathroom or kitchen. They are a common component in modern plumbing installations due to their functionality, convenience and energy efficiency.

What types of mixer taps are there?

There are different types of mixer taps, each with their own design and functions. Here are some common types of mixer taps:

  • Single lever mixer tap : This is the most common and popular type of mixer tap. It has a single lever that allows you to control both the temperature and the water supply. By moving the lever to the left or right, you mix the hot and cold water. By moving the lever up or down you adjust the water supply.
  • Two-handle mixer tap: This type of mixer tap has two separate levers, one for hot water and one for cold water. By turning the levers independently of each other, you can achieve the desired water temperature. This type of mixer is often found in older installations.
  • Thermostatic mixing valve: A thermostatic mixing valve uses a thermostat to regulate the water temperature. You can set the desired temperature and the thermostat will keep the water at that temperature, even if the water supply changes. This type of mixer tap provides precise temperature control and is useful for showers and bathtubs.
  • Concealed mixer tap: A concealed mixer tap is installed in the wall, so that only the control levers or buttons are visible. The pipes and the tap itself are hidden behind the wall, creating a sleek and minimalist look. Built-in taps can be either single-handle or two-handle mixer taps.
  • Kitchen mixer tap: This type of mixer tap is specifically designed for use in the kitchen. They often have a higher spout (high arc tap) to easily fill pots and pans. Some kitchen faucets also have a pull-out spray head for extra flexibility.

These are just a few examples of mixer taps. There are other variants available, such as wall-mounted mixer taps.

Maintenance of mixer taps

Maintaining your mixer tap is vital to ensure its longevity and performance. Regular maintenance can prevent problems and ensure that your mixer tap lasts a long time. Here are some maintenance tips:

  • Cleaning: Clean the mixer tap regularly to prevent the build-up of dirt, limescale and soap residue. Use a mild detergent and a soft cloth or sponge to clean the faucet.
  • Removing limescale: If there is limescale on the mixer tap, you can use a mixture of vinegar and water to remove it. Soak a cloth in the vinegar water and wrap it around the faucet. Let it sit for some time so that the vinegar can dissolve the limescale.

What should I pay attention to when buying a mixer tap?

When buying a mixer tap, there are several aspects that you should pay attention to. Here are some key points:

1. Type of mixer tap: There are different types of mixer taps, such as a single-handle mixer tap or a two-handle mixer tap. Choose the type that best suits your needs and preferences.

2. Material: Check the material the mixer is made of. Stainless steel and brass are popular choices because of their durability and corrosion resistance.

3. Water pressure: Make sure the mixer tap is suitable for the water pressure in your home. Check the faucet's specifications to ensure it is compatible with your water pressure system.

4. Installation: Consider whether you want to install the mixer yourself or hire a professional. Check that the tap comes with clear installation instructions and that it fits your existing sink or sink.

5. Style and design: Choose a mixer tap that matches the style and design of your bathroom or kitchen. Various designs are available, such as modern, classic or minimalist.

6. Price and quality: Compare prices and quality of different brands and models. It is important to choose a mixer tap that is both affordable and offers good quality.

By taking these aspects into account, you can make an informed decision when purchasing a mixer tap.
