Rated 1 out of 5 by Eng 101 Dripping, expected better.
Purchased these along with the matching bath shower mixer.
I fitted these to the hand basin first. Once fitted and turned the water on the hot tap was dripping. Even when tightened right up it was still dripping. New taps shouldn't be like this.
I returned these and the bath taps for a full refund, the staff were helpful and had no problems giving me the refund (in gift card form).
I've now purchased some elsewhere manufactured by Swirl that look very similar. The other retailer is known for selling screws and other DIY things. They were better quality, had the spray bits in the ends of the tap, were cheaper and didn't leak. Overall, i'm in one way glad that they leaked because I have a better set of taps at less cost. I wouldn't recommend these taps.
A couple of other bits of advice though that you really should do.
1. Fit proper back nuts made from brass. 1/2" for your basin, 3/4" for the bath.
2. Fit flexi's, make sure they're suitable for drinking water.
3. Fit inline isolation valves if you don't already have them and if they're not built-in to the flexi's.
These three points are very important and help you to do a proper job first time round, nice and neat with no leaks.
4. I also used a self aligning washer to help centralise the tap in the hole, but this isn't vital.
Hope this helps.

Only had the taps on for a few weeks and already the 'HOT' lettering has come off the hot tap. We are carefull not to use any harsh cleaning products in the bathroom as we have expensive tiles etc, so we are very disappointed to say the least, it would be a big task to replace the taps again as the feed pipes are boxed in !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Trixielala As expected
cheap & cheerful but ideal for the little basin in the downstairs loo. A leading competitor sells the same thing but cheaper, but were out of stock. These look fine & do the job
