how it works and a mixer

how the mixer works

The mixer is made up of two faucets that combine hot and cold water into a single object that allows you to regulate the temperature and the flow of the water.

There are different types of mixers:

  • For bathtubs , they also have the connection for the hose and the diverter for the handset (hand shower)

  • For sinks , they are fixed with the ring to the sink and have often integrated the command for the lifting mechanism of the cap.

  • For bidet , they are similar to those in sinks and often have the command to open the cap

  • kitchen sink mixer
  • For kitchen sinks , unlike those for sinks they have a longer exit spout that allows you to direct the flow of water into the sink tubs

  • For the shower , unlike the others, they are almost always completely recessed in the wall and only the control protrudes, there are also complex electromechanical mixers that keep the flow temperature constant. water.
