Swirl Traditional Bath Shower Mixer Tap Chrome
Good looking taps
Looks brilliant for the price and could be easily mistake for the more expensive versions.
Installation simple, however the uprights connect to the bath fine although the plastic bolt doesn't seem to hold the tension well and loosens quite quickly.
And fitting the main tap unit to the uprights seemed simple enough but it leaked due to poor shaped rubber washers. I bit of PTFE tape around the treads and wrapped around the washer sorted the problem right out.

Lovely looking bath shower tap
Just what I wanted to replace existing taps. Look great and I am a happy bunny.

Cheap but not at all cheerful
This has a lot of positive reviews, but my experience doesn't echo these.
I have already replaced one of these for a customer and have now been called back to the replacement [fitted in February], which has failed with the same problem - the bath/shower changeover valve has failed.
The mechanism has seized and [unlike higher quality brands] spare parts are again not available so the whole unit has to be junked.
Plus which the lettering has worn off the tap heads.
Against my advice, the customer insisted on an inexpensive unit, but this is going to work out costing him a lot more.
I fit a lot of Swirl brassware and it is generally good value and pretty well made, but I can't recommend this model at all. Perhaps it was part of a bad batch?

Quick and easy to buy the item required. Good value for money and staff were very helpful. Previous purchase had my delivery the next day and very prompt with communication. Good email marketing too.
