What is a hob mounted tap?

Taps can be installed:

  • on a wall,
  • on a bench, or
  • into pre-drilled holes in the bath, sink or vanity.

Hob mounted

A hob mounted tap is usually installed directly into a bench or wall. A longer-than-normal spout might be needed to reach the bowl.

Sink mounted taps are usually installed within the boundary of the sink itself.
