Bristan DUL DSM C Design Utility Lever Deck Chrome Plated Sink Mixer : good quality taps

This is a great tap,good quality and its paddle type taps make life much easier when washing up.

These kitchen taps are quality. You can tell how good they are the second you open the box. They are so well made & i love the swan neck design, as it makes my life so much easier. My mother as also bought the same taps, as she was so impressed with mine. I highly recommend these taps, pure quality.

Would have liked it a little higher. Here are the specifications for the Bristan DUL DSM C Design Utility Lever Deck Chrome Plated Sink Mixer:

  • Operates on a minimum operating pressure of 0.2 bar, maximum of 8.0 bar.
  • Flow rate – 21.9 litres per minute, mixed, @ 0.5 bar.
  • Suitable for all plumbing systems within specified operating pressures.
  • Body is of brass construction and is designed to conform to BS EN 200.
  • Valve type 1/4 turn 1/2″ ceramic disc valves.
  • Inlet connections: 1/2″BSP.
  • Dimensions for fitting- 180mm inlet centres.
  • Chrome plated to BS EN 248.
  • Supplied with metal backnuts.
  • Supplied with single check valve.

Taps look great – but does not come with check valve as stated. Unit was listed to have single check valve included. Amazon need to check the wording and remove the check valve from stating ‘supplied with single check valve’. Will buy myself – but miffed as i took this option due to the valve being included.

The item was well packaged and delivered quickly. The quality seems very good; it will probably take longer to assess this aspect.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Spray pattern problems
  • Excellent product. Convenient to use as height makes filling
  • Very functional tap

Haven’t fitted the tap yet but it looks good.

This is a robust and well constructed tap with an excellent finish. It is however let down by a poor spray pattern with jets of water coming out at various different angles. My system is a mains pressure cold and a gravity fed hot so pressures probably 5bar cold and 0. Running the cold or hot or both together makes no difference to the irregular spray pattern. Dissatisfied with the flow i contacted bristan who said that the tap was only fitted with an antisplash nozzle, but there is an aerator they can supply which should straighten the flow. I therefore fitted the aerator part number ant a500544cp-big1 (it just screws in in place of the antisplash nozzle) and it did indeed straighten the flow and turn it into a 5 star rated tap. The cost of this aerator is in the region of £10.

    1. This is quite a substantial and robust-seeming set of taps, supplied with brass washers and a built-in aerator. It was comparatively easy to install – the problem being my antiquated and poorly done pipework, rather than the tap set itself. The water flow is easy to control and has a good graduation to it. It’s working well at the moment and i’m happy with it.

  3. Nice tap even plumber said it was nice well worth. Nice tap even plumber said it was nice well worth money compared with some of the cheap taps out there. Plus this comes with 5 year warranty. It gives out a slight spray but not that much. I really got the tap because my old mixer leaked and you can easily fit a kettle under this to refill unlike my old tap.

    Good value nice looking taps. Two set of these taps were fitted in a catering kitchen and have performed well. They look good and were a reasonable price.

      1. Did buy this during the black friday week but i would so recommend this tap design. Easy turn off and on and the swan neck is a great workable height to get things in and out of the sink.

    1. This mixer tap is absolutely great, solidly built, looks impressive and stylish, from taking it out of the box, complete with washers and brass back-nuts, took about 15 minutes to replace the old set. The swan neck reaches just about half of my sink but it is high and out of the way ( a large bucket goes easily underneath) and it swivels with no force whatsoever, the levers do the same, with everything only finger tight there are no leaks. My only negative point was the aerator attached, tended to splash, so changed for one i had (never throw anything away) with a finer mesh – fabulous – a nice soft aerated flow of water hot or cold. If i ever need another this will be it.
