Hi. Looking for some advice. I have taps like these https://www.screwfix.com/p/pillar-high-neck-sink-taps/1436t in my kitchen. I'd like to replace the aerator to improve the flow and the over all look. The rubber ends are looking grubby at this point. Can someone point me in the direction of an appropriate adapter I'd need in order to fit a standard size aerator. I was looking at this https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Adaptor-Reduction-Faucet-Female-Joiner/dp/B010VHJ6F6/ref=sr_1_3?s=diy&ie=UTF8&qid=1533663580&sr=1-3&keywords=faucet+male+thread and thought maybe it could be the kind of thing I need but I of course have no real idea. Also, as my aerator is internally fitted, is it true i'd need a special tool to remove it? If so, what are they called so I can buy one.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Looking at the pics those plastic aerators should be fairly simple to remove with a pair of pliers and a bit of cardboard to protect the surface.

Then just soak in viakal or any available descaler before re-assembling.

They could be remove with pliers potentially, yes. I'd prefer an external aerator, would the adapter I linked above allow me to use a standard 24mm fitting?
