alright fellas,

ive been to check out a job for a friend of mine. both the bath and basin waterfall taps are knackered.

ive priced them up at wickes..... nigh on £300

and screwfix.

are any online suppliers worth checking out? screwfix want £132.96

the flat these taps are to go in is rented out by my mate but he would rather replace like for like than go with a contract tap or whatever. so waterfall would be going back in

i normally stick to joinery but i fit a canny few bathroom suites but im not up on online suppliers etc

cheers all :cheers:

would there be any issue using these taps? or are ebay taps best avoided for any reason?

:dunno: Quite where to start..

Those sorta taps are only suitable for high pressure (combi boiler or another HP system)

Soooo if this is a gravity system they're no good.

Even so assuming high pressure then E-bay isn't the best place to buy.

I tend to use local independants for that sorta stuff. Having said that the E-bay price does look attractive... Think I'd be looking at £200 ish for that ...
