Low-pressure taps are specially designed for open-vented water heating systems. Non-pressurised water heaters always require a low-pressure tap. At QS Supplies, we offer bathroom taps that work with low water pressure or where the water pressure is 0.1 bar. It is, therefore, essential to know the water pressure of your home and the source of your hot water so that you can install the right kind of taps accordingly.
Low-pressure taps are designed with a permanently open outlet, and once the tap is turned on, cold water starts flowing into the boiler, pushing the hot water upwards. As water expands, the low-pressure tap adjusts itself by allowing an overflow of water drops during each heating phase. This is necessary to prevent damaging the boiler, as will happen if a conventional tap is used instead of a low-pressure model, as there is no possibility of any overflow.
It may be surprising, but a great variety of low-pressure taps are available in the market today. These are visually stunning and work exceptionally well with low-pressure systems. Our online Shop stocks many low-pressure compatible taps for the bath, basin, and bidet. Whether you're searching for a traditional bath shower mixer tap, a stylish modern monobloc basin mixer, or a freestanding bath filler model, we have something for your needs. Our range of bathroom taps comes from leading brassware manufacturers, including Burlington, Heritage Bathrooms, Roca, and Tre-Mercati.
