How to fit a Grohe mixer tap | 3/8 tap install


In this video I install a Grohe 23356 BauEdge Single Lever Mono Basin Mixer tap. This can be a difficult job due to the lack of access, in this particular case, it was in a small vanity unit. Grohe make excellent quality products, which is often why they are installed in most hotel bathrooms! I bought the tap in 2021 and never thought to check the connections. The tap I purchased should have had ½”BSP fittings, but they sent me one with 3/8” BSP tails, which meant buying the adaptors etc.

Here are links to some of the fittings and tools that I used in the video-
