This is an excellent price for 2 pairs of designer chrome taps. I'm a bit peeved because I've just paid £10 more than this for similar taps off Ebay! Don't forget Quidco

Excellent find, voted HOT!

I bought a kitchen mixer tap off of ebay for about £30 thinking I was really clever to save some money...

...guess what! A real load of tat. I hope your ebay purchase works out better! Tho I think you should buy these just in case.

I would be tempted except for the fact that my experience with ceramic disc taps is that the flow rate is so restricted - that the frustration makes is a waste of time.
Since changing my bath taps, I am waiting approx 3x as long to fill a bath. Perhaps mine are just rubbish but I am running from a loft tank (not mains pressure) and so, can anyone tell me if these will result in the same old problem? (it's not like you can try first with taps is it!)

Voted HOT. I have been looking for reasonable taps to update my bathroom as I spend so much money because of Hotukdeals.
Brilliant post

These require a pressure of 0.2 bar so not suitable if tank fed unless the tank is very high .

Also, speaking as a plumber , the problem with these type of taps is that they don't have tap washers. When the ceramic cartridge wears out or gets a bit of grit in it the taps will drip. Spare parts are often unavailable so my advice is
1. Pay a lot more money for branded taps such as Armitage or Bristan. OR
2. Make sure spares are available when buying the taps, possibly buy a few spare cartridges then OR
3. If it's not possible to buy spares and the taps are really cheap buy a spare pair for parts.

Taps not a bad price but [url]www.plumbcall.com[/url] have a selection of taps at a similar price.

Make sure spare parts are available or when the discs wear out ( or get grit in them) and taps drip you will be buying new taps again , plus expense of fitting them again .

These require a minimum pressure 0.2 bar, so your tank should be at least 2 metres above the tap. Some taps require a high pressure supply to work 0.5 bar (5 meter head), so will not work with a tank.
