Moretti Avanti Bathroom Basin Mono Mixer Tap with Pop-Up Waste
Can't take flexible tails
I bought this and checked it in the Screwfix car park. It looked very good but, as mentioned by other reviewers, it was not able to take my flexible pipes because the connection to the tap is too far up inside it. Great shame as it looked very good and came with a pop up waste.
It comes with rigid copper pipes and if you are happy with these it seems to be a bargain.
I had to take it back.

i have purchased 2 pairs of these taps in the past 2 weeks and found them to be very good looking tap. didnt have issue with ugly pipework as i have fitted semi peds so u cant see anything anyway. they flow beautifully i just wish they would stop when ive turned off the tap they can dribble for engl...... brazil. last for at least 4 seconds trouble is gonna take second visit 2 change costing me time. spend more next time.

good quality fitting no probs
I fitted this tap a couple of weeks ago using flexible tails (part number 27936). I agree with the point made by reviewer above. Not only do the copper tails supplied look ugly, the flexible tails make the fitting a lot easier.
I had absolutely no leaks and a very sufficent seal by hand tightening without the need for a spanner on the flexi tails.

Uses 15mm copper rigid tails
Although the tap looks really nice, there is problem with this tap. It has ugly 15mm tapered rigid copper tubes coming out of the bottom. It would have been better to use flexible or semi rigid chrome tails. Like the Grohe taps.
The copper tails won't look nice behind a basin especially as they can only be bent a very limited amount.
I was going to change the tails for flexible 10mm tap tails but the thread for connecting these starts half way up inside the tap body. This means you won't be able to get a spanner up inside the body in order to tighten the flexible tails onto the tap body.
Nice tlooking taps on the outside but poor planning on the tails as they will look ugly behind a basin.
