The European community has long begun to save water and heat. That is why consumers in Europe were the first to use temperature controllers in their homes, as well as faucets with thermostats. All these technical devices can not only save the benefits of civilization, but also increase the level of comfort when using them. And the thermostatic faucet is one of the new products that today is increasingly found in the kitchen, bathroom or toilet room of our citizens.
How does the thermostat mixer work?
The main task of the thermostatic mixer is to maintain a constant temperature of the water flowing from the kitchen tap or tap in the bathroom, or from the shower head. Moreover, the thermostat mixer for bath and shower, and for the kitchen, and for the bidet ensures the stability of the temperature of the water flowing out of it, even when the pressure in the pipes of hot and cold water supply changes. It is, of course, more expensive than usual, but not by much. The comfort that a universal thermostatic mixer provides pays for the money spent on the purchase.
Faucets with electronic adjustment
Most often there are mechanical thermostats for sale, but you can also find models based on electronics, powered either from batteries or from an adapter connected to a power outlet. In such electric devices, levers, valves and handles are absent, and instead of them either ordinary buttons or touch-type are used.
The integrated mixer is a prime example of ergonomics. This is a sample of successful design of devices from the category of modern plumbing with hidden installation. These faucets combine the magnificent appearance with excellent performance and allow you to save space in the bathrooms, harmonize the interior of these often small-sized rooms. The aesthetics of embedded mixers is due to the brevity of their structural elements, the presence of a minimum number of technical installations.
The use of hidden installation makes it possible to remove some non-aesthetic elements of the mixer and leave only attractive attributes in sight. In this case, the thermostat is placed in the wall, and only the spout of the mixer is visible from the outside, as well as a shower head and a decorative panel with controls.
The laws of aesthetics say: the smaller the technical device visible parts, the more graceful it looks. Therefore, the most effective in terms of design will be touch faucets for flush-mounted installation (which are contactless devices that can be controlled with just light touches) and embedded thermostatic faucets.
Built-in faucets are particularly well suited for bathrooms equipped with a rain shower, which is one of the best designs of a top shower. The use of a tropical shower is a hydromassage procedure. When his work creates an imitation of tropical rain. The water supplied from above passes through the grate, being evenly distributed over its surface. There are models with LEDs, the glow of which allows you to better relax the person taking water treatments.
Long spout mixers are considered more comfortable. They are most often purchased by customers, since they have an aesthetic configuration and are universal: they can be used both in the kitchen and in the washbasin in the bathroom. A long spout was present in most of the first mixers used once in our country.
