Depending on your pressure system, you can either select low pressure or high pressure tap. We are one of the largest distributors of Taps in UK.

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.

Needed this as a replacement for 20 year old tap on my boat. Less than half the price of the same thing from marine suppliers and very competitive in the plumbing online marketplace. Arrived promptly with very good fitting instructions. Very happy with product and service.

This was ordered using the internet and arrived a day or two later. In itself the product is fine. The only problem is that the water pressure could be higher - our plumber says that this is due to the nature of a mixer unit, though its predecessor worked well.

We spent a lot of time looking for a suitable non-silver tap for our new kitchen, harder than we initially thought! This one is perfect. Great build quality, quick delivery and all necessary parts included. Only small gripe would be that seemingly with no consistency it will occasionally drip after being left for a period of time.
