The tail pipe can not be cut down, but can be lengthened if needed using standard plumbing practices. However, if lengthening is not an option, and you need one for a thicker wall, we can supply taps with longer tail pipe lengths upto to 24", although these longer tail pipe taps may not always be in stock and therefore delivery maybe slightly delayed.
Separate hot and cold inlet tubes allow for manually operated temperature control with cross contamination protection. This stylish hard wearing mixer tap contains patented pressure relief valves that prevents the tap from bursting in freezing weather should a hose be accidentally left on. The Model 22 contains an integral backflow protection device and does not require an add-on vacuum breaker.

There is an option for a "gravity fed" hot water feed or an "under pressure" hot water feed;
Gravity fed hot water is a hot water feed from a hot water cylinder, usually near your bathroom, which in turn is fed from a, much higher up, header tank often situated in the loft.
Under Pressure hot water feed is the option to choose if your hot water is fed from, for example, a combi boiler or a mains or pump pressurised water heating system.
