Great Value Product
11 May 2014
By ScottDiy
, Grays, Thurrock
"Bought this mixer tap a couple of weeks ago. A good heavy well made tap which includes all the fittings needed.
Looks much better and classier than shown in the site photo.
Fairly easy to fit even for a novice like me, working well and I'm really pleased with it.

Ideal for low pressure system
5 Jun 2013
By SparkandPlumb
, Solihull
"For a budget tap - surprisingly good.
Ideal for a low pressure system in a bungalow or flat with cylinder for hot water (where 1/4 turn taps would not be suitable).
Flexible hoses to 1/2" connectors.
I can not comment on reliability - time will tell"

solid quality kitchen tap
11 Apr 2010
By murqy7
, merseyside
"Firstly when I opened the box, I was impressed with the weight of the tap. Its a solid tap. Installing was simple, the only advice I would give is to purchase 2 compression isolation valves (15mm), if not already in place, and the flexible hoses included will attach to this directly, also a monobloc spanner is a good investment to fit the nut, only attempt if you are used to fitting compression fittings. overall probably one of the best value for money taps I have ever installed."

A tap in time
21 Feb 2010
By dragonlady
, Bognor Regis
"I needed to replace faulty taps installed by plumber. As I am disabled with arthritus I needed taps that were easy to turn on and off. I purchased these taps as they were easy to use but were elegant.
I would strongly recomend these to anyone with an eye for "value for money" and a touch of class.
(The plumber installed them free of charge)

Quality Replacement
5 Oct 2008
By Luin
, Cornwall
"Last tap lasted only two years headgear seized up and leaking (new build), this tap feels solid and smooth, I like the way the hot water streams from an inner pipe in the centre, the chrome is good quality looks like polished silver. The taps are long and at quite an angle and take up 9 inches width at back of sink, which is fine for our setup. Also had to replace bathroom taps and find Swirl taps good quality and affordable."

"I didn't fit this myself but probably could have. By no means light-weight, installing appeared simple. The flexible hoses included were shorter than those being replaced so a little extra work was required. The hot tap runs very quickly and different from the cold but you get used to it....all in all very good value for money."

Good tap
19 Mar 2011
By Hawkeyez
, Shrewsbury
"The build quality is good, the only criticism is that as the hot water comes out of the middle in a narrow jet you have to be careful that you dont turn the hot on too much or it has a tendancy to splash. Overall a high quality tap that I would recommend, has washers instead of ceramic discs which means that you can replace them easily and cheaply if necessary."

"Good quality for the price. The customer was very happy with the tap. As they are very easy to turn on and off this makes it ideal for the elderly or others with a poor grip."

kitchen mixer
9 Jan 2009
By uDIYuCALLmeIFIXit
, Milton Keynes
"Selected this mixer as it was suitably close to the one it was replacing. price point was main decider as was considerably cheaper than alternatives in this style.
Easy install was simplified by braided supply hoses which are much less hassle than the annealed copper type. Be carefull with any braided hose however not to kink them or put them under tension. You will need a monoblock spanner to fit this tap as with almost all monoblock mixers of this type.

"This tap started leaking after about 6 months. If I'd thought about I would have sent it back to the company under the warranty. The dripping is driving my wife mad :-)
I'm hoping to have more luck with a lever type tap."

Disappointing performance
27 May 2013
By rwaxer
, Settle
"I bought three of these several years ago when they were on offer.
I have spent much of the intervening time replacing washers in them to try to stop their constant dripping and sticking, which causes the water to come on too hard. I have tried many brands of washer, and find a hard rubber works better on the cold side and a softer one on the hot. But often the tap will appear to shut off and then start trickling hot water away until it is screwed down tighter, and the feel of the on/off is not pleasant at all.
The problem is that they use a tiny 3/8" washer that is not up to the job and soon wears out.
I would advise all potential buyers to check whether these taps still use this undersized washer and if they do, avoid them at all cost.

Absolutely dreadful
26 Feb 2011
By KBang

"This tap was professionally installed about 4 months ago, but has always been wobbly and unstable. Today the cold water tap came off in my hand! I was unable to get it to screw back in. So now, I've got to buy a new tap, plus pay a plumber to come back to fit the new one, not to mention the mess it made when it happened and inconvenience of the whole thing.
Don't touch this tap!!"
