"I have installed a bunch of these. Very simple and easy to fit. One big hole, attach the tap with plenty of pte tape line it up to drill the mounting hole on the wall. Cut to size inside and connect to cold feed with a shut off for isolating in the winter. Doddle"

"Really easy to install, drill the hole push through, screw to exterior and i added some silicone to seal around it.
Then the outdoor tap simply screws in with some PTFE.
I used push fit on the other side to finish off the job."

hose union back plate
12 Jun 2014
By
, Brighton
"What a great product, allows the mounting of a new outside tap with minimal pipe exposed and very neat.
Tip! If the pipe is to be fed through the cavity wall and the back of a kitchen unit, pre plumb the flexi pipe first otherwise it will not reach.

any times when you tighten the tap it ends up at a unsuitable angle

"Was fitting a kitchen and thought i would also fit a tap outside. I already had a cold water tap but wanted an outside hot tap for washing the car etc. This is a great product. As the pipe goes straight into the wall there is no worry about frost. Have had it fitted for a year now with no issues. Don't over-tighten, and fit the tap first before fixing to the wall."

Works a Treat

"I only ever use these now unless the sitution dictates otherwise. Secure it to the wall/bulkhead first, then fit the tap and you won't have any problems. Don't over tighten or use too much ptfe, take your time. By it's design it's not going to be as rigid as a back/wall plate elbow.
It also looks a lot neater than than back plate elbows."

"This allows the tap to be directly attached to the union leaving less pipework outside and hence vulnerable to frost. It certainly looks better than a wall plate elbow and covers up any chipping of the brick from drilling the hole under the flange!"

Time saving design
11 Oct 2012
By
, swansea
"Once i an while a great idea comes along. This is one of them. When using a conventional back-plate it is often difficult to line the tap up horizontal. Well this hose union backplate made it so easy. Fit tap to union, push the tube through the wall and connect up, simple as falling off a plank. It goes without saying that the plate should rest squarely against the wall as if it is not then when screwing the plate to the wall it would put a terrific strain on the plate and could cause it to fail. The tap has been in use for about two weeks now and it works without problems. A great product that saves time and money. I would recommend this product to both pros and d.i.y’rs alike. I will never go back to the old way of fitting an outside tap."

"I read the previous review and have had a completely different experience. We've fitted about 20 of these and never had a single problem. They're easy and convenient and avoid the need for external pipework. The key is to make sure it's screwed tight to the wall BEFORE making any connections on either end. And don't overtighten the tap. Use a good quality PTFE thread sealant (eg Loctite) and it will not leak."

Make sure it's long enough
1 Oct 2014
By
, Manchester
"As with a previous reviewer I found it too short for my particular installation so had to solder an extension piece on. Just an inch or so longer and it would probably suit all requirements. I noted other people's experiences with cracking so took it easy with the fitting and it seems to be fine. Haven't had it long enough to vouch for its reliability yet."
