These taps are used for mixing hot and cold water. They’re engineered to use pressure balancing so that the water released is the correct temperature. The mixer taps are sturdy thus durable. When fitted properly, they provide value for money because they last longer and require fewer repairs. Latest designs are enhanced to prevent scalding. This is the uncomfortable cooling effect that may occur when the toilet is flushed, for instance. Designs with in-built thermostats are the best. The latest technology pieces have LED displays for showing exact water temperature.
