Are you looking for new faucets, or is your current faucet getting more difficult to turn on? Many factors have contributed to the rising popularity of quarter turn taps. They are not only attractive, but they are also simple to turn.
What is quarter turn tap?
Traditional faucets with a washer need at least two and a half spins to get the water pressure up to maximum capacity. Quarter turn taps are made of ceramic discs and need just a 90-degree rotation to operate at full capacity.
Are quarter turn taps better?
Because quarter turn taps have such minimal friction. They are ideal for persons who have arthritis or a weak grip, as well as the elderly and the children. They are particularly useful when you have unclean hands since they may be activated by pressing the back of your hand or the inside of your elbow.
Ceramic discs in quarter turn taps are often more durable than conventional washers and will not need replacement as frequently as washers in traditional taps. Having said that, the hardness and purity of your water are also important considerations. One of the downsides is that they are quite simple to operate and may take some getting used to. For the first time you use them, we urge that you exercise caution since you may be sprayed with water.
Quarter turn taps may be fitted in any location where standard taps are already present — even garden faucets. Their functionality and stylish aesthetics make them a wonderful addition to any bathroom, kitchen, laundry area, or outdoor space.
