good solid product
4 May 2015
By McHughPlumbingLeeds

" These are a must if fitting an outside tap. They give a nice neat finish on the outside. The only gripe I have is that maybe they could make a longer version as sometimes I have had to solder a socket on to extend it if the walls are thick. Apart from that a great all round product "

Simple Idea, Works Really Well

" Needed to replace a broken fixing for my garden tap and faffed around trying to get bits of hose fix onto things and getting nowhere.
Got this, stuck it in the hole and fixed the water pipe to it. Worked a treat.

Great idea.

" As stated in the title great idea simple and effective. One hole drilled where you want the tap and three screws to fix it in. 15 mm pipe through the wall and connect it to your water supply. Anyone with basic plumbing skills and a bit of DIY nouse can fit this and connect an outside tap to it. "

" 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

" 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

Best fitting for the job

" Quite simply the best way to mount an outside tap. Much neater than an elbow/back plate elbow and it also minimises pipework exposed to frost damage. "
