We use them many times every day, but we donít even give them a thought. They sit there patiently waiting to be used then provide exactly what you need when you ask for it.
Faucets have been around in various guises since the Minoans around 1700 BC. They were the first to have a recorded plumbing system, which was improved and expanded upon by the Romans. Their baths were full of them, and their private bathrooms had them made of marble, steel and gold.
Until 1937 there were two faucets for every sink or tub. One for hot water and one for cold. Then an enterprising character called Al Moen scalded his hand on a hot faucet and decided to make a change. Shortly after, the mixer tap was born although it didnít hit the streets until somewhere around 1947. He made many innovations in his lifetime, including using cartridges instead of washers, movable shower heads and valves of all kinds.
Now there are as many designs of faucet as there are bathrooms to put them in.
They have become design statements in recent years. No longer the utilitarian fixture of years gone by, they are used by designers and homeowners alike to compliment an overall design or as a statement piece in a bathroom or kitchen.
We donít just look after faucets, we look after all kinds of fixtures. From the aforementioned shower heads, movable or not, shower screens, drainers, garbage disposal, extractor fans, plugs, traps, washers and the million other things that keeps a kitchen, bathroom or utility running smoothly.
If we donít have parts on stock, we will either have them in the yard, or know exactly where to get them. We can source the parts that the large DIY chains donít stock and for less than they would charge!
We know money is tight, we know that you probably need to avoid paying out as much as possible, but when it comes to plumbing of any kind, prevention is definitely better, and cheaper than the cure.
