" This tap looks good. However, it is a bit splashy and has a weird habbit of emptying itself some time after it has been turned off. Other than that it is fine. "

Pros: look nice
Cons: functionally rubbish.
" Only buy this tap if if you like having the water still draining out of the spout for 4 or 5 seconds after turning the tap off.
Really annoyed about this - after getting the plumbing fittings to suit, grovelling under the sink to fit it just to find the water flow does not stop when you turn the tap off.
The problem is the holes in the aerator on the end of the spout are too big for the water's meniscus to halt the flow. If you get a Fr***ke tap these have small holes and don't run on.
I spoke to the manufacturers about this and they couldn't have cared less!
You have been warned. "

" Easy fit and supplied with good quality flexiible tails with decent seal washers in them that connected to compression fitting no problems. Good flow control and smooth adjustment. White handles match ceramic sink perfectly. "

Pros: looks good, easy install
Cons: splashy, poor mix
" I am using this tap to replace a bridge tap on a butler sink. As it has two spouts (one inside the other) the mixing is only done as the water falls from the end. To get "warm" water to wash my hands the cold come out at a higher pressure than the hot so I end up with hot on my palm and cold on my fingers.
Also the reduced spout size causes higher pressure and lots of splashback. "
