Cook and Lewis Brita Tap reduced at B&Q from £330 to £220 now £99 - With Free Installation

100
Found 29th Sep 2012
Browsing on-line saw that B&Q £99 reduced from £220, reserved yesterday as I wanted to get rid of the brita filter jug that I have. Went to collect today and noticed that it was better than the description on the site.

The site states a small inline cartridge however the tap takes the P1000 cartridge which lasts up to 1000L.

Also interesting was that they didn't have the tap marked down in-store, full price £330 and scans at £99. Of course B&Q club means 20% too so £79.20.

And Free Installation

Edit: Free install will take around a week, local tradesman will visit that has been approved and install the tap - some boxes don't seem to have the leaflet that provides free fitting with the code, however you can just call the number mentioned on the box and provide a copy of the receipt as your proof of purchase.

Tap is a solid brass body with chrome plate, handles are also solid brass and chrome plated (no cheap plastic bits).

I found the leaflet that was supposed to be in all the boxes if anyone cares for it, scanned as PDF for your reference - pdfhost.net/ind…46f

UPDATE: B&Q Have a 20% weekend again 23 and 25 November so the price gets reduced again, so join the B&Q club. Also this offer can't be used online however it can be used in-store that they can order a tap from Central for you, just give them the card and you will get it a few days later delivered, even if your store doesn't have stock. Be aware a small delivery charge of £5 will be added.

is this a standard size tap that just lets out filtered water or does it let out normal unfiltered water aswell ie for washing up etc . we need a new kitchen sink tap and this looks lovely

Think it's a bit misleading, from the picture it looks like the right hand lever could be a hot/cold mixer ie backwards and forwards for temperature and out to the right for amount.

It confused me also as I didn't want to use the tap all the time and use up the filter. However when I looked at it in-store the right hand lever is for hot and cold and the left is to activate the filter.

that explains that thank-you .

You'd be better off fitting a reverse osmosis system with a separate tap, same sort of price but properly filtered water.

Not sure about the tap, but I like the idea of free installation. Have to check to see if any of their other taps offer the same

Do they uninstall your old Tap ? ( what if you need extra fittings etc) have you got any T&Cs

Seems a good price for a Tap to be Installed

500 mineral bottles isn't alot of water? What planet are you on.

very good price, bit put off the refill price though

Just reserved one - if anyone could enlighten on how the B&Q fitting that you say you get for free with this tap work. My pipes are all old really thin ones, so will they change all that for me for this price?

Yes. And if you get one of their better installers and give him a drink, he might fit a new kitchen for you to. X)

Ha Ha - No seriously, I have a horrid white tap that's flaking all the white off it's around 15 years old, kitchen on the to do list, but if I can get the old one taken off and a new one fitted for this price that would be great till I can afford a new kitchen.

So let me get this right, tap and 4 filters cost for 1 year = 280. Where is the deal ?

Apparently there is a number on the box that you call for installation, it's a brita promotion, chap at B&Q was not too sure what was or was not included.

How many people source their water from wells, streams, etc and actually need one of these?

All UK tap water from water companies is already filtered. These water filter products are in the vast majority of cases just a tax on the gullible.

Can't it just continue to be used with an exhausted filter?

Cooking and washing up both use on average 15 litres of water per occassion. Plus drinks, filling the kettle, etc.

I don't currently know how the installation works as Brita are closed, you just call the number on the box and arrange installation of some sort. I would presume that they would remove and install the tap, however I doubt the do additional work to install it.

The cartridge on the website is mislabelled, it is in fact a P1000 cartridge which is up to 6 months use and 1000 Litres.

This is the sort of thing with tap and water tank Here, most use the same components and replacement filters so you can look around for a better price.

To Ricto, If you really feel that the chemical treatment our water companies supply is sufficient and healthy, straight from the tap, I advise you to research the topic before posting a foolish comment, Enjoy the gynecomastia from the estrogens etc etc that come from the refined toilet waste we drink. all more filtration the better than

http://www.3way.brita.com.au/dl/3%20Way%20instruction%20booklet%20-%20Aus.pdf

See installation guide, basically it has three water incomers, hot, cold and cold through the filter. Looking at the picture it looks like the cold tap has a button on the bottom and is slightly jutting out (most other brita taps on b&q have a 3rd lever to use the filtered water).

So this to me means you can just use the filter for when wanting water for drinks kettle etc, and if the filter expires then just use like a normal unfiltered water.

Even at £79 this is still cheap for tap and install even if you never use the filters feed.

I've ordered one, and hopefully have answered some questions.

yes tap water does have chlorine in it and women hormone pills (as well as other chemical that water companies cant remove).
yes admittedly at low concentrations, but over a lifetime.
Yes its significant.

some people even wanted fluoride added to it.

This filter will only get rid of chlorine and solid particles like rust and sand. But I am guessing that the tap uses standard thin pipes that can be used with any filtration system, even a RO system - 3/8" push fit maybe?

My g/f parents use a well - a lot of people in more rural areas do, because getting mains water connected down a countryside track costs insane amounts of money. They just use bottle water for drinking and well water for washing.

This deal may not be of interest to you, but that doesn't mean that others aren't interested.
