We've hand-picked these items because they are a great choice alongside the Vado i-Tech Life Infrared Mono Basin Mixer Tap

Poised and ready for action the I-Tech Life mono basin mixer presents high-quality style and operation free technology that will ultimately enhance your daily bathroom routine. If you've found yourself pondering over high-tech taps lately, then you ought to consider the i-Tech range from Vado and renew your basin with the latest in tap technology and design. This battery or mains operated tap simply deck mounts on your basin surface and with an infra-red sensor, it only turns on once your hands are underneath the spout for efficient water consumption. Slight movements will trigger the infra-red sensor to operate water which will only flow for a fixed length of time.

Add on Vado's Protherm inline thermostatic valve (see essential extras) to blend a hot and cold feed through the tap to give you a warm stream of water.A ceramic disc cartridge is provided within to ensure there are no leaks or water wastage, leaving you a drip-free tap and a peaceful sink. An easy to clean aerator is also included which will help to prevent wasted water. The aerator helpfully infuses water with bubbles to give you an evenly smooth flow and soft to touch water which is not unnecessarily forced through the spout in excess.

If you would like to enhance the performance of the i-Tech Life even further, then choose to include Vado's H2Eco flow regulator in your purchase. The H2Eco regulator works by restricting the flow of water to your tap which helps to save water in the long-run, without compromising on performance ! A practical investment for a tap that will be with you for years to come. Equipped with Vado's 5 year guarantee, you'll have confidence when purchasing the i-Tech Life deck mounted basin mixer.

Cartridge TypeMore information Ceramic Disc
Material Brass

Taps use either a ceramic disc cartridge or a rubber compression washer to control flow. Rubber washers will naturally wear down with use, and the tap handle will require more and more rotations to turn on or off. On the plus side, it's very easy to replace a rubber washer and they're available everywhere.

Ceramic disc cartridges need only a 90-degree rotation to fully open or close, and the 2 ceramic plates are incredibly hard-wearing and resilient. They're more expensive to make, but they allow for a huge range of designs, easy operation and simple maintenance if needed.

Whilst it is rare for a ceramic cartridge to need replacing, you may very occasionally need to remove and rinse the cartridge if grit or debris within the water system is preventing the 2 plates from closing properly. Much like replacing a rubber washer, this is a quick and easy job, and will ensure many years of use.

Minimum Water PressureMore information 1

Your water pressure depends on your home's water system. It’s important to consider water pressure when buying a new tap or shower. Buying a product with a minimum water pressure that’s too high for your home will result in poor performance.

- With a combi boiler you can usually expect between 1 and 2 bar

- With a gravity system (cold water tank in attic) you may have as little as 0.1 or 0.2 bar upstairs, and perhaps 0.5 bar downstairs

- With a high pressure unvented system (hot water cylinder, no cold water tank) you will generally have between 1 and 3 bar

You can install an item with a low minimum pressure rating on a high pressure system, but avoid installing an item with a high minimum rating on a low pressure system! Read our guide to water pressure to learn more.
