Rated 3 out of 5Â by JEREMIAH SWIRL BASIN TAPS 21552
These taps performed well for just over 2 years,the guarantee period, then the hot tap started dripping. OK you would say, take them apart, clean the washers or replace them and there you go ! Afraid not, I tried to take the tap apart and could not shift it.
Took the tap off the basin, put it in the vice, used a big spanner, but could not shift it, so had to replace it on the basin, or have no hot basin tap. Unfortunately, as I had used the flexible hoses from Screwfix which had the rubber tap washer connection, by the time the taps had been replaced twice, the rubber washer was useless and the hose leaked. Can you get replacements for these rubber washers ? No !. I did get on to John Guest and eventually got them to send me a couple, but you can not get them locally. So, by then I had had no hot tap in the basin for about a week, by the time all this had happened. So it looks like I will have to buy 2 new taps, because these had been overtightened at the factory and were impossible to take apart. I have been doing plumbing for nearly 40 years, so it's not finger trouble or lack of equipment or tools.
I also bought the mixer bath tap and mixer bidet tap at the same time and both are OK so far.

A good solid 1/4 turn tap.
Having purchased these in the past and found them very reliable decided to update an old set of taps ( not 1/4 turn) with a pair of these.
Being small look good on a smaller basin.

These small and easy to operated taps look and feel good quality. I liked the first set so much and bought another.

Bought these for a Toilet refurbishment. Being small, 8cm in height, they look good on a small sink. They are easy to use and can be opened and shut with and elbow, so are not subject to contamination.
