The models with three holes, consisting of three separate elements, have an opening for the beak and the other two knobs for the hot and cold water.

Two types of mixers

For the kitchen sink, you can choose between models can be operated with one or two commands. The first one are more practical to use and easy to adjust, while others have robust internal mechanisms that do not deteriorate with use.

Single lever

These mixers are equipped with a single knob, or a lever, which allows to mix the hot water and cold water and to adjust the flow.
– Depending on the model, the knob can be placed next to, on or before the delivery spout.
– The movement of the lever is secured by a ceramic disc cartridge which is located under the handle.
– This could be damaged by the use and cause water leakage, decrease of pressure and hardening of the movement of the levers.
– It is therefore necessary to have another one to change.

A two knobs

As an alternative to single-lever, you can choose a model with a single spout for dispensing water, but two separate knobs for mixing the hot water and the cold.
– In this case there is no disc cartridge: the locking mechanism of the handle of the faucet is a ceramic cartridge that allows a rotation of 90 ° or 180 °.
In older models, was also available a greater openness, but in order to avoid wastage of water, now it is limited only to this measures.

On wall

If you want the mixer on the wall serves an intervention on the masonry, to realize a new attack in correspondence of the tap.
– Therefore is advisable to seek for this choice when you are in the process of restructuring, or if you have to replace a similar model, because otherwise you will break the tiles.
– Otherwise, with a cheaper but less aesthetically beautiful, you can connect the new faucet to the old connections with an outer pipe flush on the wall.
– The beak of the valve must be long enough to reach the sink. If the hole for the insertion of the tap is already prepared in the sink must be covered with a steel plate.
