How do shower mixer taps work?

Mixer taps connect to both cold and hot water supplies which, when activated, mixes the flow of both hot and cold water together to produce a warm flow of water. Mixer taps utilise ceramic disc cartridges which allow a smooth, simple operation and are less likely to wear out than rubber or plastic jumper valves.

The temperature can be adjusted warmer or cooler by rotating the handle left or right and the flow can be adjusted harder or softer by moving the handle forwards or backwards.
