Excellent for the price
5 Mar 2015
By BrianGofLB
, Leighton Buzzard
" Seems a good tap at a budget price, and very easy to fit. Although with it only having to go through a stainless steel sink-top , I did cut the excess length off the NON-SLOTTED end of the securing stud so I could tighten the nut with a standard 12mm socket - as access to it, between the wall of the sink and the wall of the base cabinet was rather restricted when fitting it with the sink-unit in situ. In fact the hardest part of the excercise was getting the old tap out. (A hint: If your old tap is retained by a large brass threaded backnut below, and access to it is difficult - once you've disconnected the plumbing, get someone to 'unscrew' the tap from above, until the backnut is only finger-tight. It should then be much easier to remove.)
My only reservation on this tap is that I can't see any means of removing the on/off levers; so how do I change the ceramic disc valves, if and when they start dripping? Does anybody out there know?

Plain but classy mixer tap.
4 Nov 2011
By limeydivad
, Brighton, Sussex.
" Easy to use quarter turn. Plain chrome look but easy to clean. Water seems to come out as a spray rather than a single column of water, useful. We have very high water pressure; this tap suits fine. Recommended "

Fitted by a plumber
10 May 2015
By bypasboi
, Poole
" My plumber said that Swirl is a good make. I chose this model to fill the water filter easily and to clean the sink surface below the taps easily. The spout is wider than average meaning to fill a bucket quickly is important, this is a good choice. Water pressure is good for my low gravity water system. The taps are so light to move to open and close. The aerator needs cleaning everyday to work well for hard water area, because otherwise water sprays out and does not hit on the center direction, when you only want to use small amount of water. The only concern is that I often see the water drops falling from the spout when the tap is off. "

" Lovely product, fitting is easy albeit I was a bit nervous about the tails which need to be tightened by hand only - turned out fine. The quarter turn taps are very nice and feel nicely lubricated, genuinely good product that I'd recommend "

" Great product, with a tall outlet pipe that enables me to fill a bucket with ease, and quarter-turn taps for drip-free operation. Should have bought it a long time ago. It also looks good - a minor downside to this being that the old sink looks shabby by comparison, so I'm going to have to replace the sink as well! "

Good Tap

" Well it works, a good span so the rest of the worktop does'nt get wet.
Not the easiest of things to replace. I suggest buying a set of Tap Spanners. Makes the job a dream. "

" Expected this to be cheap and nasty at first. But viewed before buying. The mixer is well made and has a good solid feel to it.
A bargain at just over £50.

Good value mid-range taps
21 Jun 2011
By MickJ
, Surrey
" Used these for a quick kitchen refit & can't fault them. Mounted them in the worktop & the fitting kit was very good quality.
I've used the Swirl range before on several jobs & all have been up to the job - much better than the rubbish you normally get in the popular DIY stores.

" Do not even think of buying this tap if you want aerated water flow, this tap squirts water at all angles in small jets. Poor quality, rubbish aeration. AVOID THIS TAP. When running water will spash all around the sink area. This tap does not include a proper water aerator. "

Bad Tap
20 Oct 2010
By DIYyer
, london
" This tap doesnt have good build quality as the spout was very loose as you moved the tap. Also as mentioned in the previous review when you turn the tap off it takes 10 seconds before it stops running. The previous tap i had stopped straight away as you turned it off !!
Therefore, I wouldnt recommend this tap.
