A GOOD N.C. TAP
16 Feb 2014
By YLURhea
, Manchester
"Fitted over 100 of these taps over the last year and not had many callbacks.
If they do continue running constantly, then either remove the misplaced O ring,(not needed) or nick the edge of the invert rubber cup washer, to allow pressure to equalize. A tiny nick on the edge will do.

Don't let price put you off

"Seems expensive for one tap, but do the maths on how much you save in a workplace - especially hot water - once you have fitted one to a basin. Doesn't take long to get your money back"

Save the Planet (AND Money!)
27 Oct 2011
By DCProperty
, Stevenage
"Putting these taps in shared houses. Good solid taps, bit harder to push than the pairs sold here on Screwfix, so blasts the water out if on mains pressure, not sure if these come with flow regulators like the pairs but if they do, I highly recommend installing them as they greatly reduce wastage and splashing."

Hard to activate
23 Jan 2013
By alfie2450
, basildon,essex
"bought these taps a few weeks ago good value compared to others on the market but as already mentioned they are hard to press down to switch them on. Sadly i am in the process of changing them for better quality ones, as a few of our visitors are elderly and the can`t push them down. I myself have problems had to punch it last night with the flat of my hand. Cheap and Cheerful comes to mind.Buy a better quality one is my advice."

H&C Non-Concussive Taps Pair ½
26 Apr 2011
By unhappytapbuyer
, yorkshire
"H&C Non-Concussive Taps Pair ½"
Product Code: 73178.
The taps worked ok for 3 months past the 2 year warranty period. The taps are used in a domestic bathroom. one of the taps has always been a bit slower to close than the other. Now it will only close if pulled up by hand, defeats the whole point of fitting the self closing tap. Given my experience of the taps I could not recommend them to anyone.

Argueable..auto switch off.
30 Jun 2012
By Delme
, Cornwall
"Yep these are taps and they are auto switch off taps, but as another reviewer has said, they seem to work excellently when first fitted but after a while they just start sticking open.
Do they save enough water to justify replacing them every 6 months or so, probably not.
If you want lasting taps, look elsewhere and let me know where you find them.
Unfortunately these taps seem to be one of those items in life where you get the quality you pay for.
Shame."

"Only a one year warranty and it failed on my customer in 15 months. I'll be replacing with a bristain - only £6 more and should last (not from screwfix though)"

"we installed 8 of these taps 5 months ago in a commercial building, we have already had to replace two as they no longer close and have now had a report that another two are starting to have the same problem. next step is to replace them all for a different make."
