Having a pull out hand spray is a very handy device for any home kitchen, enabling easier washing of food and cleaning with less splash back. The hand spray is only suitable for high pressure hot water systems (i.e. if you have a combi boiler). If you have a gravity fed hot water tank/cylinder system in your home, then you need to use a pump to provide sufficient pressure for the hand spray to work properly.The minimum bar pressure for FilterFlow is 1 bar hot and 1 bar cold. Maximum pressure is 5 bar. The hand spray is fitted into solid surface worktop or sink. If you want this option, simply add it to your order above.
