How to change a tap
How you go about changing a washroom tap will depend on the type of commercial taps you have and whether they are deck mounted or wall mounted. Here’s the basic steps involved in changing commercial taps:
Turn off the water supply and drain out any remaining water in the system.
Remove the existing taps, ensuring they are detached from the pipework - the tools required for will vary across tap types so it is best to refer to your installation guide for your taps.
Install the new taps - again, this will vary for different models of taps but this is typically done by passing the mains connection ends through the location hole and fitting any seals, washers, studs and gaskets. The taps will then be reconnected to the mains water supply.
If you are not comfortable with fitting commercial taps, it is best to hire a professional plumber who will ensure the taps are installed correctly.
What are deck mounted taps?
Deck mounted taps are fitted directly to the sink or unit if the basin has a tap hole. Alternative commercial taps are wall-mounted taps which as the name suggests, are simply fixed to the wall above the basin.
How do lever taps work?
Lever washroom taps are very easy to operate. All you need to do is turn them either left or right (for hot or cold water).
How does a sensor tap work?
Sensor taps are touch-free washroom taps so they release water once they detect the user’s hands. Essentially, sensors detect a motion or infrared light which will automatically activate the water flow. When movement can no longer be detected, the flow of water will come to a stop until activated again.
What is a non concussive tap?
Non concussive taps are also referred to as push-button taps and they have the feature of timed water flows. This makes them particularly useful commercial taps as they prevent unnecessary amounts of water being used which is both economical and cost-efficient.
What is a mixer tap?
Mixer taps have a system which combines hot and cold water together through pipes and distributes it through one tap. The benefits of mixer taps are:
They are versatile and can be used in different fixtures in the washroom (including sinks and baths).
They are safer as you can get the right temperature which isn’t too hot or cold. For this reason, they are particularly useful for environments with young children, the elderly or people with disabilities.
They are more economical as they are usually fitted with a flow limiter (meaning the amount of water flowing out from the pipes will be more limited) which helps you to save money and use less water.
