What is a Wall Hung Bathroom Tap

A Wall Hung Bathroom Tap is fixed to the wall and used with a basin which does not have a tap hole.   The Tap Manifold is hidden behind the wall with the hot and cold source pipes attached to the manifold.   The tap spout and control handle are fixed to the manifold and are the only things visible through the wall and tiles

Disadvantages of a Wall Hung Tap

1._With a Wall Hung Tap, you need to ensure the spout length is the right size.  If it isn’t then water may splash or drip onto the surface or floor.   Ideally the tap spout should be central to the basin. 

This is not a major disadvantage but more over something to consider when buying.
