Is a mixer tap just a tap that has one handle to turn on both hot and cold water, rather than two?

Does that make you have less water pressure, than having separate cold and hot taps?

    They have one spout and either one or two handles. Any reduction in flow is negligible.

    as a builder i have never fitted or seen a mixer tap with only one tap ..it defeats the object ...two pipes ..one outlet ...if you want just cold then turn on the cold only ...visa versa

    A mixer tap has a single spout / outlet point for the water.

    It can have one or two taps to control the flow.
