Tap & sink repairs & installations in Geelong.
Types of Tapware
These are the most common types of tapware available, but there are much more. There are combinations of these types, all having slightly different benefits and features. It all depends on the user and what they want from their tapware. There are even taps that come with a rinse hose separate from the main faucet. In the end, whatever style and type you are after, there is an option for your needs.

Types of Sinks
A sink installation job should be done by someone with appropriate knowledge and equipment. When choosing a new sink for your kitchen renovation, new home build, commercial kitchen or whatever the sink is for, there are many options.
The range of sinks available is always growing. New features, designs and innovations have really opened up the choice of sinks available today.
Some types of sinks that are now available are:
- Top Mount Drop In Sink - These are the most common type of sinks that people choose. Installed from above, the sink rests on top of a kitchen countertop and has a lip that runs around the edge.
- Undermount Sink - Essentially the opposite of a top mount, undermount sinks have the countertop run over the edge of the sink. The difference between the two really comes down to choice in design and not function.
- Double Basin Sink - Becoming more and more popular, the double basin sink is as the name suggests, a sink with two basins. Some have both basins the same size while others have one larger basin and a smaller basin side by side.
- Drainboard Sink - Now a fairly standard feature is a sink with a drainboard. The drainboard is where a user would usually have a dish drying rack sit so the water can drain away and stay in the sink.
As you can see there are many types of sinks to choose from, sinks can come as a combination. So you can have a double basin top mount sink with a drainboard, it’s all a matter of choice. There are even double basin corner sinks, it all depends on the preference of design and functionality.
