Deck mounted basin spouts
Deck mounted spouts are used with hands free knee or foot operated valves/taps. The spouts require a 22mm diameter hole cut into the basin. A standard 15mm male BSP thread is connected with the water supply (either foot or knee valve). The M-DSP-180 can be used with flow limiter, 1.3 L/min or 6 L/min with fine aerator to reduce splashing which makes it more hygienic. Reducing flow rate of a basin spout below 6L/min conforms to “SANS10252 part1(National Regulation): 184.108.40.206 Terminal fitting flow controller”. This is significant as unrestricted spouts, such as the W-SSP/15, can use up to 20 L/min. The only way to reduce water flow is in the foot or knee valve that supplies the water.
