Why do British sinks have one tap for hot and one for cold? What is the history on this?
Because britain is mostly cold weather country.So hot water is very crutial for us. Besides the cold tape use for to make normal water. I mean both hot and cold make normal tem.
I've never thought about it. We have both in our house. I like the cold water tap because it runs fresh cold water straight away, rather than having to run off some of the mixed water which includes water that has been through the boiler and is not best for drinking.
That said, it appears it's a combination of history, belligerence (we're good at that), red tape (we're good at that too) and cost (having just replaced two taps for £20 for pair the and one mixer for £60, there is a significant difference in price).
I found this great article on it, if you're interested: http://blogs.warwick.ac.uk/mhillebrandt … arities_i/
