Introduction and Guide to Choosing Bathroom Faucets
There are generally two kinds of bathroom faucets – exposed and concealed. In an exposed model, the faucet’s fittings and parts are encased in an external body, which is mounted either on the wall of on top of the washbasin. If a model is ‘concealed’, if means its fittings and parts are encased in an internal body, which is mounted inside the wall. Only the mixer control plate and handle would be visible.
Concealed bathroom faucets are aesthetically pleasing as the bathroom looks streamlined, but they might pose a problem should they ever need to be replaced. The wall in which the mixer’s internal body is embedded would have to be hacked before a new mixer can be installed.
Care to be taken if faucets are mounted on vanity tops (e.g. undercounter or drop-in basins) and not on the washbasin itself. Make sure the basin sprout is long enough, and not too close to the side of the basin, otherwise water splash may be a problem during usage.
Never assume all high-rise basin mixers can fit all kinds of countertop basins as there are certain washbasins that even high-rise basin mixers cannot clear. In this case, only wall-mounted basin mixers can be used.
