Outside Tap Kit Brass 15mm x Â¾"
Nice design, but beware.....
This is a really good design product in theory as there is no pipe outside and a nice flush fit to the outside wall. But there is one problem. I normally make the hole through the wall from inside the house to ensure I miss all the services. When you do this with an SDS, you often dislodge some of the outside wall. The fixing ring of the tap is quite small and if you are unlucky (as I was) you need to fill the outside wall and wait for the filler to set before you can fix the tap.
That's OK if you are fitting it for yourself, but if you are fitting for a customer, it takes a 30 minute job to several hours!
I won't buy this design again unless the wall fixing flange size/design is changed. Also the wall fixing screws and mounting plugs are far too small for the job - make sure you have longer fixing screws and wall plugs.

outside watertap kit
i have used these kits in the past but have to say that this 1 is one of the best I have used yet, from going into the stores they all had a good stock of the item, to actually fitting the tap. I found that the tap can also cut through plastic pipe and clamp onto it which is also water tight to my amazement. The tap was easily fitted and had a good length of hose attached to the back plate for access to wherever you wanted to fit the item

Promised much delivered little
Sounded like a brilliant product & easily fitted.
Hole drilled easily through wall & cutter worked well onto cold mains but that's where the joy ended.
Impossible to get standard adjustable spanner onto locking nut, tap did not shut off water to garden tap & despite multiple attempts unable to get a seal between brass elbow & self-cutting tap.
