What are the differences between a tap and a mixer?

The difference between a tap and a mixer is really quite simple. For Tap’s there are two handles with your standard Hot and Cold.  These are more common in older homes (and new federation/country style homes), whereas mixers have one lever (sometimes called flick mixers) and are seen as being more modern and contemporary in design! A tap provides water from one source (hot and/or cold), while a mixer combines hot and cold water for more precise control.

Both offer reliable, cost-effective solutions to suit your needs.
