throughput-tap-faucet-buying-guide-tap-faucet-city-singapore

A tap with a larger throughput could be for washing machines, kitchen taps and bathtubs, while a smaller throughput could be for sink taps, basin taps and shower taps.

valve-tap-faucet-city-singapore

Valve
The valve manages how leak-prone your tap will be as the more durable it is. The best type of water tap valve is proven to be the ceramic kind. However, that is not to say that other kinds of water valves are poor quality.

What You Need To Know About Taps

mixer-tap-icon-tap-and-faucet-city-singapore

Mixer Taps – To receive both warm and cold water from the same tap at any single instance, choose mixer taps. The mixer taps can come with a single-lever (or single-handle) or double-handle.

bath-shower-tap-icon-tap-and-faucet-city-singapore

Bath and Shower Taps – These faucet designs are usually designed as mixer taps so you can get cold and hot water from the same tap. These taps can come as a two-way tap or a shower mixer tap.

kitchen-tap-icon-tap-and-faucet-city-singapore

Kitchen Sink Taps – These faucets are typically designed to have a high neck spout that can swivel to help with cleaning. They can either be just a cold water kitchen sink tap or a kitchen sink mixer tap.

basin-mixer-tap-and-faucet-city-singapore

Basin MixersBasin mixer taps are for installing on wash basins only. Older homes may only fit a cold water tap for their wash basin, but it is becoming common to see basin mixer taps installed in Singaporean households.

bidet-tap-and-faucet-city-singapore

Bidet TapBidet taps are pull-out tap extensions installed next to your toilet bowls. They are touted as helpful tools to improve personal hygiene after using the bathroom, and can help clean the toilet effectively.

washing-machine-tap-and-faucet-city-singapore

Washing Machine Tap / Service TapOne-way taps are usually installed as washing machine taps or outdoor service taps since their primary function is to turn on and dispense water.

Water Tap Features & Mechanisms

Taps and faucets can be built differently to provide different methods of turning it on, make it last longer or to enhance its features. Knowing how each tap is built so that you can decide what type of tap you are looking to install is important.

contemporary-tap-designs-tap-faucet-city-singapore_wm

Ball Taps – The tap handle works by pushing plastic or stainless steel balls over a circular cover. This controls the temperature and flow of the water. They can be more prone to leaking so this is something to be aware of.

Cartridge Taps – These cartridge faucets have a lever to control flow by moving it up and down or side to side. This cartridge is the mechanism used to control the water flow and temperature.

Ceramic Taps – These faucets replace taps washers with ceramic discs instead to make its durability last even longer. The added benefit of ceramic discs is also that taps are easier to twist as it only takes a quarter turn to switch it on.

Thermostatic Taps – The thermostatic feature in a tap ensures consistency in the water temperature, making it safer to use. This is so that nobody is prone to scalding themselves when the water temperature is not controlled.

Ultimate Guide In Buying Bathroom Tap

Your old tap has served you really long but now it has started showing problems, has become rusty, or is out of fashion. Either way, you must be planning to invest in a bathroom tap installation or replacement.

Tap Installation Type

You have to think about the installation type that you want in your bathroom. Some of the best options that you have are single hole taps, center set taps, and vessel sink taps.

 

Single Hole Taps

Single hole taps have single handles that help control cold and hot water. And, it makes an amazing match for motion sensor taps. An example of this type of tap is the Fidelis Basin Cold Water Tap FT 101-1.

Center Set

It is like a Rubine Kitchen Sink Mixer Tap Platino-6042 in structure. However, center taps have two handles on one deck plate. These types of taps have two holes present at a distance of around 4 inches from the middle hole. If you have a 3 hole or a single-hole basin, then the center set tap will be ideal for you.

 

Vessel Sink Taps

Vessel sinks are installed above a countertop and so they need taller taps. Taps that are more than 4 inches tall will suit most vessel sinks perfectly well and thus can be said to be vessel sink taps.

Benefits of Having a Chrome Bathroom Tap Finish

Chrome kitchen taps are very popular in Singapore and this is owing to the many benefits that they offer about which we shall learn more right away.

1. Shiny Finish

Chrome kitchen taps are popular due to their brilliant shine. In fact, it shines brighter than a stainless steel tap. A chrome tap will become an eye-catching feature in your bathroom due to its great shine. Moreover, applying white vinegar for grime may help maintain your tap to keep it looking shiny.

2. Modern Looking Finish

Most homes prefer a chrome bathroom tap because of its modern-looking finish. If you have a beautiful modern home and have designed your bathroom in a contemporary way too, then, a chrome tap will prove to be a perfect fit. There are options to choose from such as, Basin Mixer Tap Size M, Basin Mixer Tap Size S, Grohe Eurocube Basin Mixer Tap Size XL, and many more.

3. Versatility

Chrome kitchen faucets are available in every budget range. Also, you can find them in so many different styles that they can easily match all common types of faucets and thus are highly versatile.

4. Durability

Chrome is a very tough metal that is also non-corrosive. In fact, if you get a chrome bathroom tap installation performed by a professional, rest assured that it will last a long time, being worth your money.

Common Tap Handles

Single Handle

A single-handle bathroom faucet can be attached to a deck plate so as to cover the handle holes that are left unused. However, this may not always be the case, cold and hot water needs to be operated through the one handle that a single handle tap comes with.

Double Handle

If you choose double handle taps then you will get cross handles that can be twisted right and left to turn the water off and on. These handles have a more distinctive design and offer a vintage look.

The Perfect Bathroom Tap for You

Tap color and design offer your bathroom its finishing touch. It may seem to be not as important as other things like bathroom style dimensions and bathroom vanity, but it actually is very significant. If you are changing an old bathroom tap, then simply by changing the design you can upgrade the basin tap and shower tap of your bathroom, and that too without spending much. Just by selecting the right tap finish, you can make your bathroom look more traditional or modern.

How to Choose A Faucet For Your Bathroom or Kitchen

wall-mounted-tap-tap-faucet-city-singaporeIt is important to understand exactly where the product will be mounted. Each of them has its own purpose: shower, bidet, bath, sink, kitchen sink. The height of the spout in the kitchen mixer is selected in accordance with the depth of the sink, so that during operation there is no spraying.

The fundamental difference in the kitchen is the water faucets have a longer spout in order to be directed closer to the center of the sink for ease of use.

If there are basin cabinets over the sink that hang low enough, it is not possible to use high arching faucets. It is better to install faucets with a straight, horizontal spout.

swing-kitchen-tap-tap-faucet-city-singaporeAs for fashion, the hi-tech minimalism direction is prevailing, with cylindrical lines, it is also fashionable to use smooth shapes. The most common coatings are steel and chrome.

After choosing your preferred brand, type of faucet and design of faucets, continue finding a reliable faucet installation contractor to help you with the tap installation.

After you have read this guide, you should also read through the tap/faucet installation guide to help you further on deciding which tap/faucet you should have in your home.

I had a leaking faucet which couldn't be fixed and I really tried unsuccessfully to get someone to resolve it. Fortunately enough, this company was more than willing to accomodate my requests. The plumber came right on schedule and was able to stop the leak once and for all. I should also mention, it was done in just a few minutes. He gave some wonderful advice too so that any leaks can be prevented in the future. As a customer impressed by their services, I definitely won't forget to recommend them.
