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.

Reviews
The taps look good but the levers are not exactly aligned, even after tightening one up, and the cold tap drips for a while after turning it off. The price was cheap, though, so we'll keep it for now (brass taps are difficult to find)

This is the easiest tap I have ever fitted instead of using a spanner on a little nut on a long thin threaded rod this tap is connected by a large thick nut that is easily tightened by hand. It looks very good and is well made.

This tap is very poor value for money. It uses the same shoddy valve cartridges as a cheap B & Q tap. So, after 12 months, the hot water valve failed. Then, to my disappointment, i learnt that the Franke warranty simply consists of replacing a the defective part- YOU HAVE TO FIND AND PAY FOR YOUR OWN PLUMBER. That was £50 call out and and £40 to change the valve. When you have a dripping tap (due to a leaky valve) the calcium ions in water form a bond as strong as cement between the valve body and handle, so getting taking the two apart is not a DIY job as Franke's appointed warranty agents would have you believe. Further the chrome finish - although high quality- is too easily scuffed. The nut on the swivel neck is CONSTANTLY coming loose. If you tighten it, you can no longer swivel the neck. If you do swivel the neck, the nut loosens. Very cheap design. I would much rather buy the Wickes version of the bridge lever tap. It costs less and at least its a proper warranty.

Found this tap on your website after having no luck with other suppliers and at a very competitive price. Looks great with my new white ceramic sink. Received day after I ordered it so great customer service- thank you.
