Lemark mixers: types and specifications
Mandatory and indispensable attribute of the kitchen and bathroom - faucet. At the same time, today these devices must not only perform their immediate function - mixing hot and cold water, but also combine quality and reliability, and meet high aesthetic requirements. The successful solution in this direction was achieved by Czech manufacturers of equipment for kitchen and bathroom Lemark. Of course, the market of manufacturers of sanitary appliances is very large. In order to understand the difference between Lemark mixers and hundreds of similar ones, it is necessary to consider the types of Czech mixers, their features and advantages, to get acquainted with the reviews of professional plumbers and consumers.
Despite the fact that the manufacturing country of Lemark mixers is the Czech Republic, the models and components were developed by Russian specialists, who tried to take into account the buyers' requirements for the technical and aesthetic characteristics of the devices. Before going to consumers, the equipment passes bench testing under high water pressure of 9 atm. The functional characteristics of the device, its tightness are checked. All Lemark plumbing equipment receives an ISO 9001 certificate of compliance, meets international quality standards and GOST requirements.
Advantages and disadvantages
One of the advantages of Czech mixers is that they are made from brass and stainless steel. Thanks to the use of these materials, as well as the thickened walls, the devices are resistant to the negative factors that are inevitable during the operation: mechanical damage, temperature changes, exposure to chemical reagents. Reliable coating with hygienic antibacterial protection protects products from rust, small cracks, and plaque. As a rule, the water supply in the water-pressure system depends on many factors. An abrupt change in pressure, shutdown, increase or decrease in pressure are not excluded. Lemark mixers successfully cope with these problems, since their internal elements are made of wear-resistant ceramics.
Due to the high quality requirements of the device, the manufacturer guarantees the reliability of brass mixers for at least 4 years, and steel - 5 years, but practice shows that this period is much longer. According to plumbers, if used correctly, the mixers can serve for over 10 years uninterruptedly, it is no coincidence that during this period they are serviced free of charge. Professionals note the relative simplicity when installing equipment due to the availability of a complete set of high quality fasteners attached to the product. Many consumers cope with the installation on their own, but it is still recommended to contact the specialists in order to correctly determine the choice of parameters and avoid problems associated with improper installation. And one more plus: when passing through the mixer, the water is additionally saturated with oxygen due to the use of a German-made aerator.
The advantages of having an aerator are noted in reviews by many consumers: This device prevents unpleasant smells and extraneous sounds from the sewer system from entering the apartment, and when an airlock occurs, it protects against such a negative factor as discharge of wastewater into the room, which often brings residents a lot of problems. By the number of positive reviews regularly leads Thermo series. The mixer maintains a constant temperature set by the consumer, and significantly saves water consumption. The developers have tried to make this type of equipment as accessible as possible to the consumer. Not inferior in quality to their counterparts from Germany and Italy, for the price they are much more democratic. At the same time, both budget options and elite ones are offered.
A significant disadvantage is that, like all products of popular brands, Lemark mixers are often forged by unscrupulous manufacturers. Claims to the quality of fakes are quite often found among the reviews.
To avoid this, it is recommended, first of all, to pay attention to the weight of the product. The “native” Czech mixer is quite heavy and solid. Next, you should look at the cartridge - it should be made in Spain, and the aerator in Germany. Other manufacturers of these parts are in doubt about the authenticity of the unit.
In addition to the technical advantages, the mixers of the Czech company are also distinguished by their stylish appearance. The design of the device, the variability of the color solution (classic white and steel, vintage bronze, original golden colors) make it possible to organically fit it into the interior, make it almost imperceptible or, on the contrary, an attention-grabbing design element.

Plastic inserts are provided in cranes and handles that protect against burns during operation.
