A Good Purchase
I bought this water filter to match the swan neck tap of my sink. I've had other water filters in the past but this one (for around £5 extra) has hit my spot. The water flow is very good whereas the previous filter took a long time to fill the kettle. I would thoroughly recommend this water filter.
Very Good, But...
It makes a change to come across a swan neck tap, rather than the conventional 'common' ones, and it feels good quality. What let's it down is not the price (which is a little high) but the fact that like all taps of this type, it comes with a 10mm thread that doesn't fit anything! You are meant to fit 1/4" or 6mm tube (don't confuse the two - they are NOT interchangeable!). As a plumber of 44 years I HATE 1/4" plastic tubing. It never becomes really water-tight. So I have to convert to 6mm copper tubing. Then you have trouble sourcing 6mm to 15mm fittings, and especially 6mm tubing! This tap would be perfect if the stem was 15mm and not 10mm. Yes, I know most water filters are 1/4" and not 15mm, but they shouldn't be! Even a child can easily pull a 1/4" olive off of a plastic 1/4" tube after it has been 'grounded' on! The trouble is that plastic olives DON'T get grounded on - that's the very problem. Copper olives DO get grounded onto copper tube.
Purchased this to replace an existing unit that hadn't lasted well. Seems like a good quality item
Good product use to install professionally
Smart, relatively easy to fit, delivery time excellent. Recommended
Very easy to fit, looks great and is good quality
The item has only been fitted about an hour and appears to conform to the product advertised on line. The standard of quality is good and the the filter tap functions well.
Early Days, But It's Good So Far
It's only about a week since I installed this tap, so I can't say anything about how long it will last, but it was pretty easy to install. The only issue was that this tap is designed to connect to 1/4" plastic pipe, whereas the old tap that I was replacing uses 3/8" pipe. I therefore had to buy a 3/8 to 1/4 push fit adapter, and a short piece of 1/4 pipe, but this wasn't too difficult, and worked well. The tap works fine, does not drip or leak. The tap claims to have an aerator, which I expected would have meant that the stream of water had a lot of bubbles in it. It doesn't. and I can't see any sign of an aerator, so if this is important to you, I would avoid this. Also I would like to know the make and model of this tap, and exactly what type of ceramic tap unit it fits, so that I can replace it if it fails after some years. Also what type of O-ring it uses to prevent water coming out around the swivel. As far as I can see this information doesn't seem to be available. This is the only reason why I had to replace the old tap.
Better Quality Than On Website :)
After buying filter taps for 25 years this is the best 5* ever. Substantial, modern design & quality of metal. One month on we are so pleased we found this - it will be our next buy too! But looks like it will last longer than previous 4 or 5 combined. Design matches out sink swing-tap perfectly. Nothing negative about this at all.
Great replacemet for our old dripping tap . Would definitely use fine filters again
