Swirl Essential Bathroom Basin Taps Pair
Excellent taps and great price
This is the second Swirl product I have bought from screwfix, the other being a kitchen mixer tap.
They are easy to fit, easy to turn on and off, look great and are incredible value for money.
Having done some research in plumbing forums it sounds like Swirl is a Screwfix-own brand and the only criticism I could find was that spares won't be available in the future. I don't see that as a justification for spending twice as much on a well-known tap brand. When these eventually wear out I expect my tastes will have changed and I will be ready to replace them anyway.
I bought these to replace a set of 10 year old Roca basin taps that were dripping uncontrollably and did not have replaceable washers. I had to cut off the existing pipes and fitted these with flexible hoses and separate valves. The whole job took about an hour and a half, but I'm not a professional plumber.
I agree with the other reviewer's comment about the plastic back nuts - one of them cracked before I had even tightened it sufficiently to stop the tap wobbling around. If you are replacing an existing set of taps that have metal back nuts it is probably worth retaining those.

I have fitted these in a bathroom for a customer who is very happy with them.
Standard fitting, great looking and would buy again.

Great looking basin taps
I brought a set of these years ago in my old house, they look great, easy to fit and never had any problems with them. I was so impressed I've brought another set and expect they'll last years too.
