Swirl Single Lever Bath/Shower Mixer Tap Chrome
Works for a year or two
This tap goes very stiff after a year or two and to the point that the lever snaps when you force open it. Reading the reviews, other guys have had the same problem.

Handle broke off after 5 years
The operation of this tap has always been quite stiff. Finally, the handle broke off - the cast metal fatigued and fractured, repair would be temporary at best!
Shame, as single-lever mixers are so convenient and they're not so easy to find...

Good idea but there is an obvious design fault. Look at another report and they said it leaked after some years.
I had same problem after four years, leaking quite badly from alongside the shower outlet.

Cover your bath holes
Main advantage of this product is that it covers a large area of the bath tap area; so it is a good and perhaps only replacement to cover large holes.
Looks like quality but I had to replace the same product in only a few years because of drips and operational stiffness. Internals are plastic/nylon. Shower hoze could be longer as it's effective length is reduced because of the bottom exit from the tap.
