Bristan MH SNK EF BGE Manhattan Monobloc Sink Mixer : It pays to buy a good tap

Nice looking but flawed design. A nice looking tap and generally fine, but i have to echo the point another reviewer made about the hot water flow problem. The hot water is fed through a ring of holes from the centre of the tap and, at medium pressure, the water shoots out in individual jets causing spray all over the place. An adapter over the tap may solve the problem but it’s not exactly ideal and, had a seen the tap in action before buying it, i’d have steered clear.

Very pleased with mixer tap good quality and price just wasn’t. Very pleased with mixer tap good quality and price just wasn’t so easy to fit as it said needed to be like for like 😊.

The tap arrived the day after i ordered it. The plumber who fitted it said that it was very well made. Because it was easy fit the job took only 30 minutes, he charged me a modest £25. Here are the specifications for the Bristan MH SNK EF BGE Manhattan Monobloc Sink Mixer:

    Bristan manhattan easy fit kitchen tap. Quality product which will be easily be replaced in the future. Two grub screws and the tap is will be replaced. The tap comes with flexible tales with fitted stop valves so was not difficult to fit if you have copper pipes fitted. Briston are ahead of the game and with a 5 year guarantee a good purchase.

I bought this tap it is good however when i went to have it fitted by a reputable plumber on taking it out the box there was a scratch on the cold water turn handle. I had to have it fitted as the cost of the plumber so a bit disappointed that it is not perfect.

    The above comment was written after fitting the tap. However, 2 months later:#because this is a “quick fit” tap, the joint secured by two tiny allen keys can turn loose on the push on thread and the tap head will “pop” out with water pressure. This flooded the kitchen while we were out. If there is any movement at all after fitting call a plumber straight away.
