Features and benefits
Brass has long been used as a plumbing solution for both domestic and industrial use. The material itself has many properties that make it a very effective plumbing solution.
- Brass is highly durable making it ideal for plumbing works that require a resilient and long serving material. Does not easily crack or disintegrate
- Brass plumbing fittings are best suited for hot water distribution as they can withstand high temperature. They have excellent conductivity which promotes the efficiency of hot water distribution within the house
- Compared to other metal fittings, Brass has one of the highest resistances to corrosion. The fittings do not rust, and are perfect for those who live in areas that have water with corrosive properties

The tap is pretty big, which might be an issue if your water pipes run behind the appliance. I had to spend a fair bit of time figuring out where it wouldn't hit the bottom of the washing machine. Cutting the pipe requires some serious turning strength (which makes sense) and I had to resort to gland pliers to get it to turn.
After much turning, I managed to fit it, there was a fair bit of water spraying out of it during fitting and now it's fitted it drips slightly from the valve. So, we've called a plumber out to have a proper (lower profile) tap fitted and this one removed, which has made more work for everyone.
You might get lucky and manage to fit one without it leaking but in the future I'm opting for peace of mind and getting a plumber in the first instance.
