• Taps come in a wide range of shapes and sizes (see underneath for points of interest), so remember this when picking a bowl or shower. Case in point, of you have an inset bowl; you are liable to need a wall mounted basin mixer.

• Pillar Taps – This one of the most traditional types of tap. It has two different taps which require either a 2TH or 3TH basin, where the central opening is used by a tap hole stopper or a pop-up waste lever. Verify you have a bowl that has 2 tap openings if this is the thing that you need.

Conventional monoblock’s mix both hot and cold with separate controls, while the contemporary choices are usually incorporate a single lever to control both the speed of flow and the temperature.  These are currently the most widely used kind of tap
• One-Piece Bath Filler – Featuring legs that fit two standard tap holes, a one piece tap uses two hadles but one spout. You can get bathroom accessories that attach the unit to the wall or floor.  Some taps come with wall mounting kits included.
• Three- Piece Bath Filler – Two separate controls which occupy a tap hole each and a central spout which fills the third.. This adaptable design can be mounted onto the bath rim, the wall or on the floor with the correct adaptor.
• Bath/Shower Mixers – Available in modern and more traditional designs.  The usage can be easily switched between using the taps or the shower via a diverter as needed.  Generally the shower sits above the taps on a pole or via a concealed system.
• Four-Piece Bath/Shower Mixer – This kind of tap comprises of two tap valves, a spout with a diverter and a hand held shower nozzle, and uses four different tap holes. As it uses 4 tap holes, this may require a tap hole be specially drilled and will almost certainly be a special order.
