Swirl Magellan Bathroom Basin Taps Pair Chrome-Plated
Look good but beware!!
I purchased a set of these taps for a previous job and wanted something better than the bog standard trade taps, so when another customer wanted a new bath and basin fitting these seemed ideal for the job.
I got a new set and installed them, at the end of the day i had to go off to buy a new waste and plug. When I returned following day, one of the taps had had a constant drip which even when the tap was completely turned off continued to drip.As a result, overnight the drip had produced enough water to cause damage to the lower lounge ceiling!!!
Needless to say I was far from impressed and the client rather angry.
I now have to make good the ceiling, rightly so. I had to fit a new tap washer to the valve, simple enough and takes a few minutes BUT on brand new taps they should work without fault. And why do the manufacturers not turn the taps off when they package them? Ok I learned a lesson with this job, and it wont happen again, so if you do buy these taps, don't make the same mistake I did. :)

very good value taps
Easy fitting and modern design. Comes with all fittings and very well packaged. Great for brightening up a faded bathroom.

I am very pleased with these taps. Both match, laser etched caps, good quality chrome. Very good forceful flow. Not overly controllable but, for the price, i'm not complaining.
