Looking for a new tap for the kitchen sink as our plastic one has cracked and came across this on the Ebay weekly deals. They have sold over 2500 of this one and have got good feedback. It is chrome, 1 year guarantee and has that pull out shower attachment thing so you can wash your dog in the sink if you want! All fittings included too. Here is the link to the almost identical b&q one for £79

Seen sense after being greedy and put back down to £16.79!

The two flexible tap tails alone would cost as much as this. Good post.

Looks good and was tempted, but you seen the pictures in the reviews on the B&Q website?

Certainly cant argue with the price but be aware that the guarantee is :

1 YEAR MANUFACTURERS WARRANTY

with no reference to any manufacturer, so good luck getting anywhere with any claims. At this price the ceramic disc carts are likely to be very poor quality resulting in dripping / leaking tap in the not too distant future. Will replacement carts be available? Who knows, but even if they are they'll cost you more than the tap did.

That said, it's only £17 so well worth a punt, especially if you're tarting up your house prior to selling

Yes, saw one review in relation to a plastic version but it doesn't look identical to the ebay one either, willing to take a punt as you can't get a bog standard replacement tap for that price plus as Shambles said the 2 x long flex tails are worth more then that. Ebay reviews seem good and they have sold over 2500, in for a penny in for a pound

I bought one of these when I had a new kitchen, but the fitter advised me not to use it as it was chrome over plastic and very inferior to the one I was intending to replace.

I purchased one of these from B&Q about 5 years ago for our utility room, gets used almost every day and never had a problem with it, good deal i would say.

Wash your dog in the kitchen sink? Yuk!

says in the description brass body, I assume they are referring to the whole tap

Nice.

Nice.



Yep, always be aware of freshly decorated houses that are for sale

Don't buy cheap taps. As a plumber I can tell you that your are just wasting your money!!! A lot of cheaper ones are low pressure and blow the discs / valves if you have higher pressure and will just fall to bits. B and Q taps are nothing to shout about either.

Invest in something like a Bristan model

Cheap but low quality , heat from me as i am renting an it worth the investment

Surely its better than the standard taps most people would use? Seems silly tarting up a place too much when you sell it as often the new owners have their own ideas of what they want.

Sound advice. The flexible hoses will not be WRAS approved so will void the house insurance when they inevitably split and flood the house. Any flexible pull out hose just means water leaks down the tap body into the cupboard underneath. The taps will be made from poor quality brass that will wear quickly giving you a dripping tap. If the tap uses ceramic cartridges you will not find spares anywhere.

agree, bought 1 of these types a few years ago from ebay and the ceramic disc leaked, bought better quality (70 quid i think) and still going strong, best avoided

This model is listed as chrome-plated brass, so if the description is right it's not the same one.

agreed 100 % absolute crap taps

is it just a case of turning off the water and a simple change over to fit these,do they need certain pressure?

They have some in auction ending at 6.57 no bids 14.99 with 4.90 postage - worth a try if you don't want to pay 24.99

Has now gone up to £24.99. Still a good buy thugh

These are the same that Lidl's do from time to time. I've had one for a couple of years, just staring to drip now so I'm getting one just for the flexi attachment. Heat from me.

You might find that the body is chromed brass and the spout section is chromed plastic.

My dad got a similar design of tap (and about same dimensions) from Lidl for ~£25, and we find the spout a bit too short for a 1 and a 1/2 bowl sink. His hot water is gravity fed and the hot water flow is a little on the slow side and due to the difference in pressure to the mains fed cold, it takes very little adjustment to go from cold to very hot, so getting warm water out the spout can be a little fiddly. It would probably be much better with a combi-boiler.

I'd suggest putting a reasonable amount of PTFE tape on the hose to spout connection so it is nice and secure, to prevent it eventually working loose when you swing the spout, as his came loose on a couple of occasions, flooding the sink unit.

fitted lots of the taps from these people poss. 100 + never had a call back, they all have high-pressure cartridge, so if you have low hot water pressure you may get a problem, work great with combies.. b&q sell the same type of taps for a lot more dosh. Fancy names don’t mean better theses days with taps

Now £29.99 ?

I would advise not to get one as the water runs back down the hose and wrecks the kitchen unit's.
No plumber would recommend these for that reason.

Similar tap here for £18.99 with warranty also

And me ???????????? yet before i bought it it was at £16 or there abouts and then went up to £26 for some reason ????

And me ???????????? yet it was £16 before I bought it strange that its put me off !!!!!!!!!!!!

Now 29.99 - the chap selling them has twigged. The ominous power of HUDK

Shouldn't this deal be expired rather than changing the price on here, because when it was £16 it was hot, but now it is £30, I'd vote cold.

I'd sooner put a stupid pointless dog like a pug in the kitchen bin.

I bought one of these last year, and the quality isn't great, however I paid half the price advertised here, so it's not worth £30 imo. But you can't really complain for the price lol.
