Taps cascade can be used for washbasins, bidets and bath tubs (although there are plenty of shower heads), and they are found in a variety of materials, shapes and sizes.

Other concerns relate to the possible formation of scale and the fact that the price of these taps is still higher than of those with traditional opening.
