Low Pressure Taps
When you come to choose taps for your bathroom suite it is vital to select a tap based on the correct water pressure of your system. This is because this will affect the way in which your taps perform. A low-pressure system will require a tap that can accommodate a lower water flow. For those who are unsure about what system they have a rule of thumb is that low-pressure water systems are gravity fed and less than 1.0 bar (1.0-meter vertical distance between the tap or shower outlet and the base of your cold water storage tank is approximately 0.1 bar).
If you have a low-pressure system then you will benefit from our range that we have specifically curated with low-pressure systems in mind. Here at Bathshack, we believe that your bathroom should live up to your visions which has lead us to ensure that we stock a vast range of low-pressure taps.
Investing in great quality, stylish bathroom taps is a sure-fire way to elevate your decor. Here at Bathshack, we put a lot of time and effort into sourcing new faucet styles that we think our customers will love.

- What is a low pressure tap vs a high pressure tap?
Taps are generally sold as either low pressure or high pressure, which simply dictates whether it’s simply for a low or high pressure water system. A low pressure system is typically around 0.2 bar and is gravity fed, whereas a high pressure system is fed by the mains water pressure system and is typically over 1.0 bar.
- Do I need a low pressure tap?
Figuring out if you have a low pressure water system is rather easy. If you have hot-press that contains a hot water cylinder and a water tank in the attic feeding that cylinder, then it’s likely that you have a low pressure system. If you’re still unsure, just turn on the taps in your bathroom –the cold tap should have a good water pressure because most cold water taps come from the mains water feed, but the hot water tap may have a significantly lower water pressure. If this is the case, it is more than likely that you have a low water pressure system and your bathroom would thus be best fit for a low pressure tap.
- What type of low pressure tap is compatible with my sink?
This will all depend on how many tap holes you are working with. If your sink has one tap hole, you’ll be going for a mixer tap. This tap combines your hot and cold water flow and streamlines it out from the one spout. This type of tap allows for precise control over the water temperature, which is adjusted by either a lever or twin handles. If your sink has two taps holes, you’ll be choosing from our wide range of low pressure pillar taps. These include two taps: one for hot water and one for cold, and come in a range of different styles.
- What type of low pressure tap is compatible with my bath?
If you have two tap holes on your bath, you’ll be able to choose from our range of filler taps. With these taps, hot and cold water is controlled by two separate handles but then mixed together to flow into your bath at your ideal temperature. A popular type of tap thanks to its ease-of-use, we stock filler taps in a range of styles so you can find the perfect product to suit your space. Another type of tap that is compatible with two tap holes is the shower mixer tap, which also allow the user to control the water temperature by two separate handles, which then flows out from the one spout at your perfect temperature. These taps have the addition of a shower head, which can be detached from their holder and moved around to allow for the benefits of a shower within a bath. Lastly, if you’re working with one tap hole in your bath, you’ll be shopping in our range of low pressure pillar taps.
- What colours of low pressure taps are available?
Our vast selection of low pressure taps feature a range of colours so that you can find the perfect product to complete your space. For a rich depth of colour, why not go for an on-trend black tap, or for a classic yet modern touch, opt for a chrome tap.
