good find op, heat added
These look good, heat added.
Nice taps
Sure it's shiny but are the internals any good. Will you need to change the seats in a year. Will the chrome stay on. Just because it's Lidl it doesn't mean it's good. Not the most renowned plumbing merchant

Not many years ago the comment would have been "Oh it's Lidl so it must be no good". Much respect to them for overturning that image.
Got this last year as a temp solution, still going strong. Well made and looks good
Nice, takes me back to the 1990s

There's a lot of BS talked about taps imo. Case in point; the tap in my bathroom is from iBathUK on Amazon (the Martin bath mixer) and obviously made in China. Cost 45 quid and it's a very substantial weight for the money paid. In the 2 years it's been in it's performed faultlessly, not a hint of a drip and the quality of the chrome is very very good (we live in a hard water area).

The tap in my kitchen (I forget the make) should have been 100 quid plus (and is back up to that now) if not for Black Friday and it's a complete POS. Only been in a year, leaks constantly, nothing quite returns to the correct place when used and the chrome on it tarnishes very easily. Give me a Cheap Chinese tap every day of the week (they are probably all made in China anyway but at least don't get ripped off with the asking price).

Talking of getting ripped off, against my advice my son bought some bathroom taps from a large, national High Street bathroom chain for a total of 225 quid as a 'special offer'. recognising them I got to work on Amazon and sourced exactly the same taps (as his bathroom outfitters taps had been delivered with a 14 day refund policy I ordered the Amazon ones so we could see them side by side and compare) for 76 quid. Needless to say he returned the original taps (well, they sent a courier which was a nice touch and he got a cheque for 225 quid soon after)

Seeing this listing reminded me to go to Amazon regarding the tap I ordered back in September. It was made by ibath UK as well, this one which has good reviews. In the last few weeks the tap has made high-pitches noises as it leaks. The plumber had it last week and said the inside of the tap is wore out. The more expensive one did about 8 years before it started to leak around the seals.
