We've hand-picked these items because they are a great choice alongside the Vellamo City Tall Chrome High Rise Basin Tap

The waterfall tap; it's such a simple concept, and yet, when done as elegantly as the Vellamo City tall basin mixer, it can easily become the focal point of any bathroom without breaking the bank. There has been a recent surge in the number of waterfall taps and also in the number of tall basin mixers, and the Vellamo City fuses both trends together elegantly and effortlessly.

Like almost all modern basin taps, the Vellamo City tall basin mixer shys away from traditional rubber washers, instead choosing the much more resilient (and frankly better) ceramic disc cartridges. Not only do these have a considerably longer lifespan than the washers found in older taps, but they make controlling the water much easier as well, and once the tap's been turned off, it's off - there are no more annoying and costly drips.

By using cutting edge materials and the highest specification, and with the most stringent of quality control, every Vellamo tap is made to the most exacting standards. That's why the Vellamo City tall mono basin mixer Comes with a 10 year guarantee.

Material Brass
Cartridge TypeMore information Ceramic Disc
Taps use either a ceramic disc cartridge or a rubber compression washer to control flow. Rubber washers will naturally wear down with use, and the tap handle will require more and more rotations to turn on or off. On the plus side, it's very easy to replace a rubber washer and they're available everywhere. 

Ceramic disc cartridges need only a 90-degree rotation to fully open or close, and the 2 ceramic plates are incredibly hard-wearing and resilient. They're more expensive to make, but they allow for a huge range of designs, easy operation and simple maintenance if needed.

Whilst it is rare for a ceramic cartridge to need replacing, you may very occasionally need to remove and rinse the cartridge if grit or debris within the water system is preventing the 2 plates from closing properly. Much like replacing a rubber washer, this is a quick and easy job, and will ensure many years of use.

Minimum Water Pressure

Your water pressure depends on your home's water system. It’s important to consider water pressure when buying a new tap or shower. Buying a product with a minimum water pressure that’s too high for your home will result in poor performance.

- With a combi boiler you can usually expect between 1 and 2 bar

- With a gravity system (cold water tank in attic) you may have as little as 0.1 or 0.2 bar upstairs, and perhaps 0.5 bar downstairs

- With a high pressure unvented system (hot water cylinder, no cold water tank) you will generally have between 1 and 3 bar

You can install an item with a low minimum pressure rating on a high pressure system, but avoid installing an item with a high minimum rating on a low pressure system! Read our guide to water pressure to learn more.
