An essential attribute of our established life has long been faucets in the bathroom. I would like not only to wallow in the bathroom, but also to take a shower. Progress does not stand still and new advanced models appear. How to choose what will be convenient, reliable and modern? Consider the rating of the TOP 7 best faucets with a shower for a bath: which one to choose, pros and cons, reviews, price and other important characteristics are given below.
Type of control
The mixer is used to mix cold and hot water from the pipelines to the desired temperature, as well as to switch the water between the shower and the spout.
When adjusting the water, the following control systems are used:
- Two-valve. Until recently, the control system, consisting of two valves located to the right and left of the spout, was the only one. Each of the taps is responsible for its own water flow and mixing takes place in a separate chamber of the device. Such a scheme is simple and easy to repair. As locking devices, cranes are used - axle boxes with a rubber gasket or with two ceramic plates ground to each other.
- Single lever Popular management system. The lever on the mixer moves in two planes: up - down and right - left. This makes it possible to adjust the pressure and temperature of the water in a special cartridge.
- With integrated thermostat . With this control, the mixer has two flywheels. One sets the exact temperature on a pre-applied scale, and the second is responsible for the pressure of the water.
- Sensory. The device is turned on when the sensor triggers the heat of the user's hands.
To switch between a shower and a spout, a simple two-way switch is usually installed on the device.

- Floor. The device is installed on the floor, and water conduits go inside it to the required height. And the upper part does not differ from standard mixers. The same spout, shower, and work management mechanisms.
What to look for when choosing
Having decided to choose a mixer, pay attention to the following points:
- Installation It is important to determine exactly how the faucet will be located - on the wall, the side of the bathroom or on the floor. It depends on the prepared water outlets.
- Material. It’s better, of course, to choose brass products. Top models are usually chrome plated.
- Control. The choice is huge: two-valve, single lever, thermostatic or touch. The last two types are the most advanced, but also the most expensive.
- Equipment. All parts must be included. But, for example, for some models you need to buy a separate hose and shower head.
- Functions Swivel or fixed spout. Type of divertor. And it’s worth seeing what opportunities a shower head has.
