Learn about different types of bathroom tap.

Obviously bathroom taps fall into two main categories, basin taps and bath taps, below is a list of various types that will explain in a little more detail.

Basin Taps

  • Pair basin taps - a basic set of taps, one hot and one cold
  • Mono basin mixer - hot and cold water through a single spout, generally with one lever to control the flow and temperature, or two tap heads to mix the water
  • Side action mono basin - as above but with the single lever on one side
  • Wall mounted - the taps come out of the wall, rather than up from the sink or worktop
  • Cloakroom basin - generally a smaller version, for cloakroom basins
  • High rise mixer - a taller tap for designer basins mounted on a worktop
  • 3 hole basin mixer - 3 holes on the sink or worktop, hot, cold and spout
  • Open spout - a "designer tap" style with a wide open spout
  • Waterfall - another designer tap with a wide spout that cascades water into the basin
  • Heavy pattern or light pattern - this is just the weight of the casting, heavy perhaps looking more grand on a traditional style tap

Bath Taps

  • Pair bath taps - two taps, one hot and one cold
  • Bath filler - A mono bath tap where the hot and cold water mixes to flow from a single spout. Could be twin tap head or single lever
  • Bath shower mixer - this adds a shower mixing head to the taps
  • Wall mounted bath taps - the spout and taps are wall mounted checkout the options such as shower heads, diverters and thermostatic control of water temperature, that meets TMV2 certified standards
  • Four hole bath mixer - two hole house the hot and cold taps, the other two the spout and a shower head
  • Five hole bath mixer - as above but with a separate control to divert between taps and shower head
  • Free standing bath taps - generally used with a free standing bath, these have a standpipe up from the floor to feed the water supply with a mixer head and control on top, often with a showerhead and diverter.
  • Heavy pattern or light pattern - often used to describe traditional bathroom taps heavy pattern are often ¾" connections, giving a better water flow and light pattern ½" which are cheaper but with a lesser water flow.
