A swan neck is a type of spout or faucet that is used in sanitary ware, such as bathroom sinks, basins, and bidets. It has a long, curved shape that resembles the neck of a swan, hence the name.
Yes, it is possible to use a swan neck with a bathtub. Swan necks are often used as the spout for freestanding bathtubs or as part of a bathtub faucet set. However, it is important to make sure that the swan neck is compatible with your bathtub and that it is properly installed to avoid any issues.
Swan necks are typically used with above-counter sinks or basins, such as those made of ceramic or glass. They may not be suitable for use with undermount sinks or those with a very shallow depth.
Like any other bathroom fixture, a swan neck will need to be cleaned and maintained on a regular basis to ensure it stays in good working order. This may include wiping down the spout and handles with a soft cloth, as well as regularly checking for any signs of wear or damage. If you notice any issues with your swan neck, it is important to address them promptly to avoid further damage or costly repairs.
