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.

You get what you pay for......
15 May 2011

"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."

Cheaper than anywhere else !

"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."

Pegler Outside Tap

"Grossly overpriced. I was expecting a "Rolls Royce" tap and got a "Ford" version. It leaked when fitted and needed adjustment. On the plus side it looks nicer than other cheaper versions on the market."

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"

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."

Nice tap but doesn't work
27 May 2012
By
, London
"Worked for a month but then started leaking with the tap turned off.
Pretty expensive compared to a standard
tap so expected better.
Screwfix as always brilliant and exchanged for another one of the same type - I need this tap profile.
If it goes again I'll post back here."

"This is the second one of these I have had that stopped working after a cold spell. The check valve is well and truely stuck closed. I have found that it is possible to cut out the check valve and then continue to use it until a replacement is bought. Will not buy this again"

"I had exactly the same problem as Tapfitter Ted, first one was no good after December 2010, took it back and got a replacement and what do you know even after a mild winter the tap has the same fault again, even covering them up doesn't help.
So I'm off to buy a cheap tap.
