- A plumber can convert tap installations in a kitchen
This home owner in Epping, Sydney had a single mixer kitchen tap which worked ok, but combined with the shallow sink it meant there wasn’t much room to fit a large pot or frying pan when doing the washing up. So instead of installing a new kitchen sink, they decided to convert their single tap mixer into a new, modern, pull down kitchen sink tap.

Why replace a single mixer kitchen tap for a pull down tap mixer?
Create more space around your kitchen sink
A lot of older homes have double kitchen sinks and the idea is maybe you soak in one sink and rinse off in another. Although to save money most of the sinks that were installed in homes in Sydney were quite shallow. Modern interior designers will install very deep sinks that can take a large pot or lots of dishes.
So to create more space around your kitchen sink you have a few options;
- Renovate your kitchen and replace the existing sink completely with a new one.
- Retain the existing sink but install a taller single mixer tap so there is more space between the tap head and bottom of the sink.
- Remove your single tap mixer in the kitchen and install a pull down tap mixer that has a flexible hose connection and can be moved around.
How does a pull down tap mixer create more space around the kitchen sink?
A pull down tap mixer is usually taller than standard single mixers so that it can house the extendable hose and provide plenty of reach to the left or the right. By raising the minimum height of the tap from the base of the sink you create more usable space when you are washing things in the sink.
This extra space means you can put larger items in the sink and the tap head won’t get in the way. The pull down design means you can have a flexible tap head that can disperse water wherever you need it. This eliminates the need to install a deeper kitchen sink to achieve the same outcome.
Most pull down tap mixers will also give you the option of different spray types, either a standard water flow or a ‘shower’ type of flow to help with your washing up duties.
What should you consider if you want to install a pull down mixer?
While the top part of the pull down mixer looks similar to most other taps, it is under the benchtop that you have to think about. There has to be enough space for the water extension supply to be pulled from the tab and have the weight placed to pull it back down again. Some cabinetry may have shelving under the sink where there is not much space for this to occur.
Depending on your kitchen it may be necessary for the plumber to adjust the shelving by cutting a hole to enable the pull down element to function correctly. This might be a simple hole that is cut or some other adjustment depending on the set up.
Is a pull down tap mixer a good idea to install in a kitchen?
This is why cafe’s and restaraunts use them in their commercial kitchens, it saves on labour costs & the amount of time it takes to wash dishes. The ergonomic design also requires less movements to use it, so it is good for people that have joint pain.
