Ross’s Home Discount Centre offers a range of high-quality tapware for bathrooms, kitchens and laundries. Should you have a question in relation to our tapware, please look for the answer below before getting in touch with us.
Black tapware is much cheaper than many other finishes. Brushed nickel, brushed gold, and gunmetal grey tapware, for instance, is much more expensive. The Brushed Nickel Elgin Basin Mixer is $260.00, for example.
The kitchen tap is the most used tap of a home; therefore, investing in quality is most important. The quality of a tap is evident from the materials used in the manufacturing process, the warranty, and whether it is Watermark approved. Quality taps comprise brass construction and ceramic disc cartridges. They have a 5-10 year warranty and are Watermark approved.
The other important factor is functionality and ease of operating. Kitchen taps can come with various features such as a pull-out sprayer and flexible hoses and can have a single lever, dual levers, turn assemblies, etc. Consider your preference before making a decision.
Bath taps come in all shapes and sizes. For example, some spouts may be 185mm long, others 230mm – it depends on the tap design.
In terms of installation, all bath taps in our range fit standing plumbing fittings, so you will have no trouble installing them.
A kitchen mixer is an all-in-one tap, that doesn’t require additional hot and cold turn assemblies. Instead, mixer taps comprise an easy-to-use lever handle that allows for accurate and quick control over water temperature and flow.
A shower mixer tap is the item of tapware that enables a shower head to function. The mixer tap offers accurate and quick control over water temperature and flow. Without it, water would not pass through the pipes and out the showerhead.
In most cases, a shower mixer tap is required in addition to a showerhead or shower set.
Mixer taps top the list in terms of the best kitchen tap. Mixer taps comprise an easy-to-use lever handle that allows for accurate and quick control over water temperature and flow. Moreover, you can operate them with one hand, which is handy if you’re multitasking in the kitchen.
Due to their popularity, there is a wide range of design options, so you are sure to find one to suit your home style.
Tapware is made generally from metals including stainless steel, carbon steel and brass. Tapware in our range is made from Dezincification Resistant (DR) brass and finished with durable materials. Brass offers much better thermal conductivity than stainless steel or carbon steel.
Yes! Absolutely. The key is to invest in black tapware with an electroplated finish, as opposed to a powder-coated finish, which is what you can expect from all black tapware in Ross’s Discount Home Centre’s range.
Electroplating is the process of applying a metal coating to a substrate through the reduction of cations of that metal by means of a direct electric current. It is robust, and won’t naturally ware off; however, it will show signs of wear over many years of use. It offers far greater longevity than powder-coated finishes.
