Deck Mounted Tap FAQs
What does deck mounted taps mean?
Unlike wall mounted taps, deck mounted taps are installed directly into basins or vanity units with tap holes.
What’s the difference between deck mounted and surface mounted taps?
Deck mounted taps and surface mounted taps describe the same style of taps. Their terms mean that the bottom of the tap sits on the surface it is mounted on (whether that be a basin, bath or trough).
How to replace basin taps in the bathroom
We recommend professional plumbers are hired to remove and install taps in your bathroom to avoid causing any damage. If you aren’t familiar with the process, here’s how deck mounted taps can be replaced in your bathroom:
Turn off your water supply
Once you’ve done this, run both your hot and cold water taps to allow the remaining water to drain out of the system.
Remove your existing taps
Simply unscrew the nuts holding your current deck mounted taps in place and remove them from the pipework.
Install your new taps
You’ll need to connect the threaded post to your taps, feeding into the tap hole until the taps are sitting on the surface of the basin. At this point you can screw the nut onto the threaded post until the tap is attached to the basin.
Connect your plumbing
Screw in any connectors to your taps, connecting them to the pipework.
Turn your water supply back on
Turn the taps on when you switch the water supply back on (this helps to prevent damage caused by any air forced through the system) and check that everything is running smoothly and there aren’t any leaks.
Why choose a deck mounted tap?
Deck mounted taps are attached to basins or baths through drilled holes on their surface. They are a very common type of tap and are usually easier to install in comparison to wall mounted taps. You can find many different styles of deck mounted taps, allowing you to choose the ones which best suit your commercial bathroom and preference and the fact that they don’t require any wall fixings allows for easy cleaning.
Do all taps fit all basins?
No, not all taps will fit all basins and you should also consider what type of tap will best suit your commercial washroom. If you are looking for a deck mounted tap, you will need to ensure there is enough space between the basin to where the spout exits on the tap and also between the top of the basin where the taps will sit and the wall. It is therefore important to find out the necessary measurements so make sure you find the right taps for your needs.
