Depending on the type of sink you have and the weight of the tap fitted, a tap may require additional support brace to reduce the amount of sway that the tap has when it is being used.
A stabilising bracket will help to minimise any potential long term damage to the sink, taps or the pipework.
A stabilising bracket is particularly helpful if any of the following apply to your sink and tap:
- The tap is fitted to a budget inset stainless steel sink
- The sink is a single bowl
- The sink has a large drainer section
- The tap is quite heavy
- The tap has flexible connections rather than rigid copper tail pipes.
