How to Choose Shower Mixers
Choosing a shower mixer may seem like a straightforward task, and for the most part, it is. However, tapware provides essential functionality, and therefore, some consideration should be made to ensure you select the best product for your needs and budget.
When it comes to shower mixers, the main areas of consideration are functionality, quality and design.
Types of Shower Mixers
Thankfully, there aren’t too many types of shower mixers, so the selection process is relatively simple. There are only two types – standard shower mixers and diverter mixers. Knowing which you need is easy; if a shower head is the only tapware in your shower, then only a standard shower mixer is required. However, if you have two or more tapware (i.e. a shower over a bath or a separate shower head and hand shower), then a diverter mixer is required. A diverter mixer diverts the water flow from one output to another (i.e. shower head to bath spout or shower head to hand shower).
Shower Mixer Quality
Although no water disperses from a shower mixer, quality still matters. All shower mixers comprise a disc mixer cartridge that can wear very fast if it is of low quality. To know if a mixer is of quality or not, check to make sure the disc mixer cartridge is ceramic. Also, check if the mixer is Watermark approved and if it is backed by a 2-year plus warranty. Shower mixers that offer such qualities will provide longevity.
Shower Mixer Design
Choosing the right shower mixer design is an easy decision to make. Simply look at your shower head/bath spout/other bathroom tapware and match it accordingly. If your tapware is round in profile, opt for a mixer with a round design. Likewise, if it is square in profile. If it features a chrome finish, opt for a mixer with a chrome finish. If it features a matt black finish, choose a matt black mixer, and so forth.
