Brilliant idea

"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!

Good Quality and easy to fit

"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."

Good....but
08-Apr-2012

"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.

Not compatible with all taps
04-May-2014
By
, COVENTRY
"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

3/4" bath taps do not fit
17-Jan-2013
By
, Kent
"The 3/4" bath tap revivers do not fit a standard 3/4" bath tap.
The adaptors appear to be designed for a large fine thread.
Summary do not waste your time."
