What you should pay attention to
Modern mixers are divided into:
Depending on the configuration, a watering can or a shower with a hose can be attached to the mixer.
For the bathroom, a mortise mixer is required, which is mounted directly into the wall for docking with the water supply. The main task is to fill the bath, fill the containers with water — for example, a bucket for washing the floor. Such a mixer is usually equipped with an outlet for a shower hose, where switching modes is performed using a divertor. The optimal length of the hose is from 1.5 to 1.7 m, so that it is not short or, on the contrary, too long. The watering can is mainly with silicone nozzles. This option is reliable and functional.
For a washbasin in the bathroom, the mixer should not be too long, so that water does not spray on the sides during use. If the main task of such a washbasin is the ability to wash your hands or brush your teeth — a mixer length of 12 cm is enough.
For the kitchen, on the contrary, choose options with high long faucets. Think about it, you will have to wash food under it, put dishes, including oversized pans and pans. In this case, the tap should not interfere with free access to the bowl of the sink. If you are planning a sink for 2 bowls, be sure to choose a mixer with a rotary mechanism.
