Hot water tap in chrome

Brand: Insinkerator
Finish: Chrome
Manufacturer Model No: 152991
Brand Name: Insinkerator

At first glance the price seemed to be for the tap only but it says that the price has been reduced from £699 to £349 which doesn't make sense if it was just the tap. So I emailed Wickes customer services to check if this includes the required Insinkerator installation Pack 44728 (which is a compact 2.5L boiler including a scale filter) and they have replied to say that it does. I also phoned them to double-check and they said "It is not just the tap - this includes everything that you need to complete the installation".

Next closest retailer seems to have this at about £420 so I've ordered one. Don't forget the 2.1% Quidco making it a possible £342.

This is a great deal for those with cash on tap

I'm sure this will go positively on here and my heat will be the spark that sends this to untold heat.

Or you could just boil a kettle when you need hot water.

I have the separate Insinkerator hot and cold tap which I can't fault. Picked mine up on eBay for £300 which was from a kitchen fitters cancelled order. Had one in a previous house too. Originally I was dubious as to how much I would use it but now can't recommend them highly enough. This one seems to just replace your normal mixer tap so you haven't got to worry about cutting worktops etc. Really easy to fit if you are a competent DIYer. Great for small kitchens too as no kettle clears workspace.
Get one, you won't be disappointed.

This is an excellent price. It's easy to spend £1,000 on similar units.

The fact people have downvoted this to below -100 is just mind-boggling. The "I can't afford this, so you shouldn't enjoy its benefits either" culture is strong ;)

£349 for something to do the same thing a £40 instant hot water kettle will do or a £5 kettle will do ( with a 2 minute wait) could possibly explain why people think its not a good deal.

That is very possible. It's one of those high-convenience items which depend greatly on how much the target market values their time. It's reasonable to assume this product would work for three years. If you use it once a day to make a cup of tea in the morning, it would cost you 32p per use. It would save you that daily two minute wait, or 36½ hours over the same period. If you use it once per day. You'd probably use it considerably more than that though.

I pretty much thought it would go this way but having been in the hunt for a boiling water tap I knew this was a great deal. Hopefully it will still help someone.

On B&Qs website, it states that it's made from lead brass which I am concerned about - should I be?

It's great having hot, cold and boiling water all from the same tap too, rather than having a separate stand-alone boiling water tap. More compact, and most importantly, no need to have a second hole bored in your worktop.
Really good deal; thanks for posting and ignoring the adversity.

Brass is an alloy containing lead and as such almost all taps contain at least some lead. I'm guessing here, but B&Q probably meant to advertise it as "low lead brass."

No need for concern at all.

Yes but the beauty of instant boiling water will not be appreciated fully until you own one , then you may have a different view.
We thought exactly the same as you but wanted our new kitchen to have all the bells and whistles. If we had to trim our budget it'd probably be the first thing to go , I admit. However , we absolutely love ours and going back to a kettle would be like doing away with our washing machine and washing clothes by hand ...well , almost !!
It is extremely convenient though and we didn't want a kettle to live on our kitchen side , we wanted the worktops completely free and with this we got what we wanted ;)

We Paid £590 for ours back in Sept 2015 , it was the brushed steel version which was more expensive than the chrome by about £50/£60 iirc so this is a great price !

* some people

I think its a great deal. Then again I paid for quartz worktop over cheapo laminate , underfloor heating over a cheap ugly radiator , I could go on ....
BUT , if I had cheapo'd out on everything I wouldn't have the kitchen I have , each to their own I guess. Its a personal thing and I'm on here a lot on how to save money , get the best deals etc so I haven't got that much money I throw it around, I just like nice things and an instant hot water tap is one of those things plus it saves much needed workspace and is efficient to run , comes with a great warranty and is a wonderful time-saving device which gets used a lot in our busy household.
Don't get me wrong if I lived alone I wouldn't justify the purchase due to limited use, peoples circumstances are different but I would highly recommend one for busy households where demands for boiling water are higher.

Extra 15% off starting today bringing price down to under £297. Plus used Top Cashback.
Although website says 15% off deducted at checkout it only took 10% off. Phoned customer service and they are sending a cheque out for the difference as glitch on site.
Bought when posted first but did not arrive until Thursday, phoned customer services but they would not refund difference as ordered on 2/2/17. They stated I had to return which would incur a charge of hand back to to a wickes store (free) and re-order to get the cheaper price. Done so and saved the extra £52

Hi - it comes with 2 boxes - one is the tap and the other the boiler. TBH because we haven't installed it yet we haven't opened the boiler box to see if there is a filter as well. I can do that tonight. BTW we returned ours to get the further ~£50 off in the current 15% sale. They wouldn't apply the discount over the phone we had to physically return the unit. In an interesting twist, when we returned the first tap to store they refunded us but refused to take the boiler box because it has a 'Howdens' label on it (they must resell it I guess, but it confused them in the store?) so now we have 2 boilers. I'll get back to you re the filter.
