Know more about Kitchen Mixers

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.

Love the look of this tap and it performs well now it is in place. But getting it in place was a hassle. It comes with 30cm long flexi-hoses, and most belfast sinks are at least 30cm deep. So you have to have your copper pipes up behind the sink in order for the hoses to reach. That then makes it impossible to fit the hoses on, unless you remove the sink.... It should come with 40cm or 50cm flexi-hoses (which I had to buy). Also for a tap this heavy, the C-clip that holds it to the bottom of the countertop (or stainless steel sink) is pretty flimsy. I think it should come with a larger, more substantial bracket to hold the tap in place, as long as there is room. Now it's in, I am happy with it, however.

This tap definitely looks the part and offers reasonable value for money, and is useful for being more 'directionless' than other taps, so can be used in lots of different arrangements. The clip which keeps the nozzle in the holding 'arm' kept slipping out of ours, which was annoying. The woven metal-covered pipe within the spring developed a leak after four years, and split completely about three months later. Although nominally covered by a 10-year guarantee, this requires that you return the tap immediately any fault occurs, which is hardly convenient - what are you going to do without a kitchen tap while Sagittarius decide whether they're going to give you a new one? But four years for a tap which costs this much isn't bad, I suppose (even Grohe only give five years on their cheapest taps), so I guess that's just to be expected.
