A good tap for low pressure. . Having spent ages looking for a good low pressure tap (to replace one that just dribbled warm water) this one was perfect.
Good tap but not as described. The tap which was delivered was not the tap detailed here. It was a similar tap, but differed in a couple of details. Bristan make two chrome manhattan taps. One (mh snk c) has fixed tails and has a maximum pressure of 8 bar (as described here) and the other (mh snk ef c) has flexible tails and has a maximum pressure of 5 bar. This may not be important to your application but it should be stated on the description. Delivery (using a trial of prime) was fast and was delivered in good condition.
Worked fine after a few teething problems which were resolved. Here are the specifications for the Bristan Manhattan Monobloc Sink Mixer Tap Chrome Plated:
- Chrome Plated
- Ceramic Disks
- Water Pressure Min: 0.2 Bar
- Water Pressure Max: 8.0 Bar
Looks like it will last for ever. Yet to install, but it is heavy & strong, and looks extremely well made.
This bristan tap replaces an astracast targa tap which i bought that claimed to be duel-flow but was in fact a single flow mixer tap which is not suitable for gravity hot water(immersion heater type). This bristan tap is a genuine duel flow mixer which keeps the high pressure water cold separate from the low pressure hot water until the exit nozzle, the only con is the hot water squirts with a fast-narrow stream of water-that if it hits the bowl of a spoon in the washing up bowl you may get soaked.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Pleased with the taps
- Good tap but not as described
- A good tap for low pressure.
It is a good quality tap and looks smart but does ten to splash a bit.
Very satisfied with this product and supplier. Fitted very quickly by my local plumber.
