"I bought both 1/2 and 3/4 tap converters,and,found both extremely easy to fit basin 10 mins,bath 12 mins,and what a fantastic difference they have to the wife and myself,we are both in our 80s,so easy to use and really look great,no more struggling to turn the taps on."
"My old taps where done in and I was dreading fitting new taps, knowing it would be a nasty business adapting to the existing pipework. This idea sorted my problem without the hassle of the fitting of new taps. They were easy to fit, work great and look the biz. Much releived!"
"Bought these to replace a constantly dripping set of taps. Very easy and quick to fit, had some problems with washer not shutting off completely but I believe this was due to add original taps. I replaced washer with larger version and this seems to have done the trick.
They are a huge improvement over the original screw down taps and look far better as well."
"Bought two of these kits, 1/2" for the basin taps, this 3/4" kit for bath taps. Both my existing taps were BS5412
Basin kit fitted easily without any hassle. What is not clear though is that the tap head supplied in both kits is the same size and thread so when fitting the 3/4" kit the tap head was too small. The adaptors supplied are to convert to BS1010 taps and are different thread so were not suitable for my taps. An internet search on this found a couple of people have had the same problem over the years. Buying two 3/4" to 1/2" brass adaptor rings from local plumbing supplies cured the problem (total cost £1.37!! ) But I feel these should be included in the tap kit as it purchased as a 3/4" kit. Overall kit is good, just be aware of the extra parts required."
"Had to take back, the tap would not close of the water. The instructions are poor, unlike the the Bristan taps.
Bought the Bristan tap reviver kit, which did work. The Bristan comes with extra rubber seals so you can adjust for the many different valve depths. Its a shame Screwfix do not sell these, however my local plumber shop did."
"These replacement tap tops look good enough quality, but they do not fit standard 3/4" threads. The adapters supplied, convert the 1/2" tap tops (ideal if you want to replace basin taps) to 1" fittings. The chrome adapter/bush has an internal diameter of 1/2" and an external diameter of 1" - My bath taps are 3/4", so the adapter doesn't fit. Why don't they come with 1/2 to 3/4 adapters as stated?"
"The bath tap kit is not really 3/4" and the top looks on the small side. First problem the body thread was too small for our tap so I tried to fit the threaded adapter and larger tap washer assembly as instructed. 2nd problem the adaptor and the washer were both too big for our taps. I was about to return them to Screwfix as useless when I had an idea, which was to fit the new handles straight on to the old spindles. Almost there, except that the splines on the spindles are different diameters. End of story! Then I noticed that our old spindles had a larger plastic spline fitted over a brass spline, The inner spline being the same size as the spline on the new tap handles. So with the aid of a pair of pliers, I removed the plastic spline collar and BINGO! the new tap handles fitted directly on to the old taps, So we have new tap handles, not really bath tap size, but I guess we'll get used to them. But definitely no thanks to the manufacturer. I;m hoping we can do the same with the basin taps My advice is if is possible fit new taps and leave these alone! I did think that maybe our old taps are none-standard, but this seems unlikely as they are less than three years old"
