Dripping after less than 6 months
jeremy8502 - 5 months ago
Installed and was working fine, but it hasn't been even in for 6 months and it's already dripping. Would not recommend.

The first tap started to drip after two weeks and was replaced like for like without a problem.
The replacement lasted three weeks before leaking from the seal between the spout and the msin body.
Would not recommend.
Not Suitable for Low Pressure
anorak67 - 8 months ago
This tap is described on the website and on the box as suitable for low pressure. That is not accurate. For a traditional English low pressure system in an ordinary house the pressure will not be sufficient for this tap. Reading more closely the minimum pressure required is 0.6 bar. That equates to a height of 6 metres from the tap to the low pressure tank in your attic (or wherever). Few houses (and no bungalows) will achieve that - and remember that is the minimum.
Further the hot and cold water is mixed within the spout. That means, assuming mains pressure for the cold, that when both taps are turned on the cold will force its way back up the hot pipe. To stop that you have to fit a "check" valve on the hot pipe, which lets the water flow in only one direction, towards the tap. Of course the valve itself will further restrict the flow of water, making poor flow a bigger problem. A true low pressure tap has twin pipes within the spout, and the water mixes only at the nozzle, avoiding this problem.
The supplied flexible connectors are of small diameter, again unsuitable for low pressure.
I would suggest using a specialist supplier if you have this problem.
The taps are fairly hard to turn - not much grip.
Otherwise seems a value-for money tap, but only if you have a combi boiler or other system providing good and equal pressure to both hot and cold sides.
B and Q, to be fair, refunded my money.
