Wall mixture is a single unit fitted where the entire unit is visible unlike concealed shower panels. Bathroom wall mixer 2 in 1 unit is called so as it comprises of 2 features viz.

The hot and cold water knobs are present as default in all wall mixture types. Say you want luke warm water, you can turn on both the knobs i.e. hot and cold water on at the same time. The knobs fixed to the wall mixture in 2 in 1 wall mixture are in open fitting style. You can change or replace the knobs, spout and shower whenever required. You have quarter turn knobs used for hot n cold water as modern style in wall mixtures. These quarter turn knobs have cartridge that has replaced washer(indians usually pronounce it as wiser) used in basic knobs.

Basic knobs are those you keep turning it to receive water in full pressure. But Cartridges used in latest design knobs enable smooth movement and are durable then vicars used in basic knobs.

If not open style wall mixture, you can have single lever diverter fitted to your bathroom. Single lever diverter is a single unit that features 3 things. Single lever diverter when turned left or right, it give hot and cold water respectively and also features bucket filling option.

      Kuldeep ji, please make sure to involve your plumber in decision making. Arrangment of concealed piping will also decide what bathroom fitting you can buy & which one you cannot. Bathroom fittings as such are last thing you should be worried about. if you are buying from one of top 2-3 brands, you will get 5-7 years of warranty.

      I personally recommend divertors & not traditional mixer. Advance manufacturing technologies makes them very good & robust. Secondly the pleasure of using them is way better then traditional mixers.

      In some parts of India, because hard water, scaling (deposit of lime like substance on pores) happens.
