Just a tap on the wall
27 Apr 2015
By Allan1957
, East Kilbride
" This is such an easy DIY kit, anybody could fit this. The instruction on the box are very easy to follow and clearly illustrated. Even better is the order on line facility. I ordered this product late on a Friday night and was ready for collection early Saturday morning. Remember to order a 16mm dia masonry drill bit long enough to drill through your wall. My tip would be to advise seal with mastic before screwing collar to the wall. "

" You do not need to be an engineer to fit this!
The hardest thing here is to find out where you isolate your water mains in your new house!!
Other than that, lovely bit of kit that saves you loads on plumber costs! "

Outside tap kit
21 Apr 2013
By Matrix4
, West Yorkshire
" Overall a very good product, however when fixing the internal tap I would remove the rubber washer before cutting into the pipe then take it apart and replace the rubber washer.
The reason for this is there is a good possibility of threading or cross threading when cutting into the pipe with the rubber washer in place.
I can't give it an honest reliability rating as I have just fitted it. I have had to give a rating to post this review, I have given it 4* because I think it will be fine.

Small Bore
5 May 2015
By RhysW
, South Wales
" The kit seems to represent good value for money and includes everything you need to install an outside tap.
With that said I chose to return the kit as the fittings had a very small internal bore. As I intended to use the kit with a gravity fed system I was concerned that the water flow rate would be overly compromised.
I exchanged the kit for a standard outdoor tap and wall plate, both from Screwfix. "

Forever leaking
11 Oct 2013
By ScubaBadger
, Basingstoke
" Put this in place and from day one the union between the hose and the internal tap brass adapter has leaked.
I have removed it, checked the rubber washer, added PTFE tape and that stopped the leak between the adapter and the tap - but then the hose to adapter joint continues to leak.
The jubilee clip is done as tight as it will go, so my next step will be to pull it off, cut back to a fresh piece of hose, apply some PTFE / or plumbers mait and try a new jubilee clip.
Should not be going through this though. If this does not work I will have to remove the kit and plumb in traditionally - which would render this kit a waste of money.
While I am not using inappropriate language - this probably won't get past moderators! "

Easy to fit but LOW PRSSURE
24 Apr 2013
By fitascman
, Swindon
" A word of caution to you would be plumbers... whilst this appears to be a cost saving and quick excercise, the result may disappoint. Self cutters are fine for say a washing machine but when higher pressure is needed, say for an outside tap, much better to fork out £50-60 and have a proper job done. The problem is fairly obvious, the cutter only creates a small hole which can be further compromised by the cut 'flap' causing an obstruction. End result in many cases, not enough water pressure at the hose to water a daisy!!! "

Avoid at all costs!
30 Jul 2014
By Househusbandhandyman
, Northumberland
" Bought one of these to fit for a customer. Although the actual installation was fine as soon as it is secured to the wall it leaks from the crimped pipe, took it back for an exchange, and same thing happened in exactly the same place.
Returned for refund no problem, and bought outdoor tap kit from competitor with copper pipe to go through wall, worked first time and no leaks!!!
