When Tap Turning Is So Yesterday …

Bathroom and washroom facilities have really become quite the fashion thing currently.  Whenever I’ve heard my mates talking about their home projects, it’s interesting to note how many of them have very specific views on what sort of tap arrangement is suitable.  None of them seem to take into account the needs of anyone else in the family.  This is a critical matter in my home – I need to have very easy to operate taps on for dispensing of all water.  Arthritis takes no prisoners and once the painful joints cease to be able to grip and conventional tap, then the time comes to have them taken out and replaced with lever operation.  These can be used with elbows or even wrists if the fingers fail.    On similar lines, we changed our showers in the bathrooms and ensuite from one where you had to turn the front tap, to fantastic push button – simple press of top button and wait until blue light goes out then it’s at your chosen temperature.  Pure pleasure!
