Great tap ,fitted two of these to sinks for people with mobility problems.You can sit your pans or kettle on the sink unit and fill them without the strain of having to hold things under the tap,also the levers make it easy to use when you have problems with your hands

Solid and good quality
Feels really well made, solid, heavy and having used a number of Swirl products before I've no doubt it will function for years without any problems. Why spend well over Â£100 when this does the job and looks great?

Great Quality Tap
This is a great quality tap, the finish is very good and the tap controls and tap head operate very smoothly with minimal effort, the supplied fitting instructions are clear and adequate.
One of the studs that came with my tap was damaged half way down, I had to cut it to get the nut past but other than that it was installed easily.
The supplied hoses are 350mm long, this was something that I was not sure about prior to buying the tap (its in the description though) and is relevant as you donât want loops and of course itâs no good if they are too short, measure up before you buy the tap and get longer or shorter ones as needed..
The hose fittings are standard female compression nuts, the other end just screws hand tight in to the body of the tap and seals using rubber O-rings, you get 2 spare O-rings with the tap, I also used a smear of silicon grease on mine too which is a top tip, hand tighten no tools!
Flow through the tap is very good, there wasnât quite enough mains pressure for the aerator to work properly but it was fine, itâs a nice tall tap with lots of clearance underneath ideal for the car washers and their buckets! Or for filling vases for flowers as the missus reminded me!
Itâs quite a tall tap and in many ways reminds me of a beer tap, if you are installing this purely through a stainless steel sink you might find that you need to brace the tap from underneath to stop it bouncing/flexing, I used a small shelf bracket to brace the studs from underneath to the cabinet, its solid now with no bounce, you donât have to do this of course but you also donât want to fatigue the sink around the tap hole and you donât want bounce anyway, this of course will not be problem through ceramics or wood/composites.
All in all this is a very nice tap and matches many other taps that cost a lot more money, it may look a little big for small sinks but is ideal for larger sink units and work tops, a very nice tap for little money.

Bought this tap in July and it recently started to drip when off, but Screwfix swapped it for a new one without issue and gave great service.
The only pain was to remove the old one and fit replacement.....just hope it was a one off, as otherwise I love the tap.
