Rated 5 out of 5 by Dan P Good quality Bib Tap
Received very good service from the staff who helped me find what I wanted since the store was being refurbished. My old outside tap was leaking from the spindle with no means of stopping it. The bib tap I bought and fitted has a gland nut which can be adjusted. It was easy to fit and is of good quality and price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Derek Not UK legal for connecting hose pipe to mains
I bought this tap, then discovered that in the UK, if you want to connect an outdoor hose to it, then to be compliant with regulations, you need to fit a back-flow preventer. Your options are to fit one in the mains pipe or choose a tap with a preventer built-in. Some taps come with these built in. This one does not.
It would also be customer friendly of Homebase to supply the tap with a fibre washer on the inlet side. The store I went to didn't stock a suitable size of washer.
Otherwise - it's just fine. Easy to fit....

Rated 2 out of 5 by Technophile No check-valve?
This is much cheaper than the bib-tap Homebase used to stock.
But on careful inspection of this tap in the shop, it appears that this tap has no check-valves. Water regulations require Check-valves on taps that may have a hosepipe attached. So I didn't buy.
(Note: It's ok to have a tap without check-valve, if there's an in-line check-valve in the pipe leading to the tap, but I don't have room for an in-line check-valve.)
