complete guide to 3-way kitchen taps

What are 3-way kitchen taps?

3-way kitchen taps are a subset of water filter taps that are used together with under-sink water filters. Standard water filter taps dispense filtered water only and are placed adjacent to your existing kitchen taps. In contrast, 3-way kitchen taps replace your existing kitchen tap, and they combine the functionality of your regular kitchen tap with that of a standard water filter tap.

The result? 3-way kitchen taps dispense filtered cold water, unfiltered hot water, and unfiltered cold water from a single tap, hence the name 3-way taps. While standard filter taps are installed on your kitchen sink by drilling another hole in it, 3-way triflow kitchen taps replace your regular kitchen tap.
