Swirl Allegro Mono Mixer Sink Kitchen Tap Chrome
Ok For price
Ok For the price, not especially quality feel, and design is Economy rather than top notch.
My particular tap had its thread misaligned making fixing a much more awkward process then necessary - I'm sure Screwfix would have exchanging it without fuss as my experience has been they have good customer service, but I needed to get it in so perservered.

Have a shower when washing up
Had this tap fitted as a replacement for one of a similar style that had tarnished.
Great looking tap and certainly would appear more expensive than it was.
Tap handles each side are nice and responsive.
Tap base stands high off sink so easy to clean.
Blasts water out when turned on full. This is also not a good point (see Cons).
The 'shower' type head on the tape means you either have it on so slowly that it takes ages to fill up a washing up bowl or you risk wet clothes every time you put it on full. It's brought me to the conclusion I need a dishwasher.
Not easy to fill a steam iron from it due to the 'shower' effect. Water goes everywhere, not just in the refill hole.
Put it on too full and even a cordial drink looks like it's fizzy!
Would I buy this tap again? No. Definitely not. Despite its good looks, I am seriously considering changing it for one with a single spout rather than this infernal 'shower' effect.

Swirl Mixer Kitchen Tap
Tap arrived after 2 days as I am an NE Scotland
The outer box was split but no damage to contents
instructions were clear although in the ilustration the diagram of the washers was transposed
Tap had a really good appearance and appears to be working well
it was fair in terms of value for money
I find Screwfix reliable and the website easy to use
Too soon to say about the reliability of the tap as I have just fitted it

This is a very nice tap and looks good.
Operation is smooth, and the customer love it.
However the copper tap tails supplied are made of extremely thin copper. When cut to size with a pipe cutter, the pipes distort.
I had to replace the tails with flexible ones - which are available.
