" Solidly built (and good looking), as are their stopcocks. Far superior to the cheap rubbish usually found nowadays. Others have left poor reviews, but it seems that they are due to not draining the outside tap during winter. "

" Like other reviewers i was looking for a right angled tap - most outside taps are at a funny angle. This product fitted the bill perfectly with the built in check valve. This is not the cheap option but is really well made and feels like a quality product - looks good as well "

Not cheap but worth it
8 Aug 2014
By
, Poole
" This tap is more than some others, but as it includes the required double check valve, it is no more than fitting a separate tap and separate valve, and quicker to install than separate items.
As for those reviewers which had problems in cold weather - ALL outside taps should be isolated and drained of water before freezing weather arrives. Leaving any outside tap full of water in the winter will damage it regardless of price. "

expensive but worth it
2 Jun 2014

" Great tap.
More expensive than the other taps offered but when take into account the built in check valve it works out a lot cheaper considering you don't have to buy one and saves time and effort as you don't have to fit one.
A far superior tap and would highly recommend.

" Twice the price of 'budget' taps but a high quality product which, so far, has performed up to expectation. As other reviewers have said, the 90 degree tap angle is big advantage if other 'pre-hose' items are to be attached. For example, the brass 'y' fitting also supplied by Screwfix. "

" same product was almost twice the price on other specialist garden irrigation sites so i'm glad i added it to an order with screwfix as i saved myself a few quid. Solid tap - vertical tap allows for better use with water timer/computer and/or multi valve manifold if you want to split your water supply. VERY HAPPY :-) "

just what I needed
25 May 2010
By
, North Wales
" I experience much difficulty in sourcing this type of tap. ( the type with the nozzle pointing straight down and not angled ) This tap was a replacement for such. As I have attached a device to the tap that facilitates an extra hose connection and added a water timer to one of these and a pressure reducing fitting attached to the timer, the whole assembly hangs down approx 250mm., had I mounted these on the original angled tap the assembly would have projected away from the wall a considerable distance rendering it rather vunerable and added extra strain on the tap connection. By adding a simple home made bracket lower down the assembly and fixing it to the wall made it very secure against accidental damage and also prevents easy theft of the most expensive part of the auto watering system.

Only one with vertical outlet
28 Apr 2015
By
, Berkshire
" I was looking to replace a leaky tap after moving house. As I have a water timer and a 2 way tap adaptor, I wanted a vertical outlet to reduce stress on the connections. This is the only one of these that Screwfix offer.
It seems pretty good quality (I hope so, for the extra price over the own brand taps) and I like that there isn't a visible screw on the handle (to go rusty or loosen.) It's also useful that it has a built in check valve. "

Don't use outside!
26 Apr 2016
By
, Powys
" Okay, I'm fed up with reading reviews with people moaning about check valves not working after bouts of frost.
To state the Water Regulations:
If your existing outside tap does not have a double check valve incorporated or in the pipe feeding it, you must fit one if you attach a hose to the tap, or you must fit a check valve to the tap outlet. This rule comes in when you fit the hose, even if the tap has been there since 1960.
However, on a new install of an outside tap (which is to be, or could be, connected to a hose), the double check valve should be inside the building where it will not freeze.
If you are REPLACING an EXISTING outside tap you should either fit a double check valve inside the thermal envelope of the building on the pipe feeding the tap, or use an outside tap incorporating a double check valve, or fit a double check valve to the nozzle of the new tap.
IF YOU CHOOSE TO FIT THIS PEGLER TAP WHERE IT COULD BE SUBJECTED TO FREEZING CONDITIONS, IT MUST BE DRAINED DOWN BEFORE COLD WEATHER.
We simply can't blame Pegler if we abuse their taps. I would only ever fit this in a porch or similar, otherwise I'd use a separate double-check valve. "

Don't leave out in the winter
3 May 2012
By
, Letchworth
" Great looking substantial tap that directs flow downwards, not at an angle, British made and was exactly what I wanted. But as with some other reviewers my tap did not work after the winter freeze, Pegler advised that I should have isolated and drained the tap for the winter season. I did manage to repair the oneway valve which had siezed at the inlet by hammering it back into the tap body. I'm not sure why there is a oneway valve inside the tap, to stop back flow? Anyway I should think I'll be doing the same thing next winter. Hope this helps "

Poor design
21 Nov 2014
By
, perth
" Pegler is not what it used t be.
Poor design, drain hole at bottom of tap is sealed with a rubber o-ring held in place with a countersunk screw. Tighten the screw and the o-ring squeezes out!!
Not rocket science.

Great in Summer.
12 Feb 2011
By
, Tyneside
" Fitted mine in the spring and it was great during the summer months. Winter came and the big freeze, the tap wouldn't work when I tried to use it a few weeks later. Seems the frozen water had pushed out the rubber seal on the internal check valve, causing it to jam inside. Fitted one for my father in law, and his was exactly the same. "
