Kitchen Sink Mixer Taps
They have come a long way from being set as separate faucets for hot and cold water. Since their invention in 1880, mixer taps for kitchens allow for hot and cold water to mix in a set ratio and spray out from a single faucet.

Kitchen mixer taps work by taking water from both the hot water and cold water supplies that come into the same pipe, where they get mixed. The proportion of hot-to-cold water needs to be set by the user. The quantity of hot and cold water required is controlled by levers. Some taps have individual levers for hot or cold water. Others have a single lever for which selection of hot or cold is made by turning it either left or right, or upside down. Sink mixers use pressure balance valves which maintain the pressure of both hot and cold water, thus, ensuring an even temperature at all times. This is essential because a shift in pressure on either would result in disastrous effects.
Contemporary kitchen fixtures include gooseneck sink spouts that easily rotate to accommodate two sinks and arch high enough to oblige larger pots and pans. Pull-out sprayers can be made to reach any area of a kitchen to facilitate clean-up as well as watering windowsill plants. Kitchen sink sprayers also have adjustable water flows consisting of an aerated stream and a more powerful water stream for more intense cleaning jobs. With a plethora of taps available, including traditional, modern, pull-out sprays and LED versions, there is one that suits every kitchen design. Made from durable and corrosion-resistant material, they come with long guarantee periods as well.
