GROHE 32917000 Minta Kitchen Tap : Top quality tap, but very high pressure water supplies required.

Top quality tap, but very high pressure water supplies required. . The tap is manufactured to a very high quality but, make sure you have very high pressure available. I fitted my tap to mains pressure cold and hot (supplied via a combi boiler) 15mm pipework, but the flow rates are still lower than i am used to. I am afraid i do not have any specific pressures or flow rates, but the tap i removed that had 15mm copper tails and seperate hot & cold 1/4 turn ceramic cartridges worked just fine. Also the operation of the tap takes some getting used to and visitors are a bit baffled, this may be due to the fact that i have fitted it with the lever/cartridge pointing to the right to give more room on the draining side of our sink, but this means the spout outlet is also over the right hand side and i sometimes get my own arm wet. I recommend fitting the tap with the lever/cartridge facing either forward or facing the opposite side to the spout outlet. I must add that my wife has not complained so it might just be my fussiness.

This product is described as a 1/2′ tap ( or 15mm in the modern language) which is misleading as it will not connect to a standard uk 15mm hot and cold supply as the flexible connections are only 3/8′ or 10mm this means that you need as further connection which reduces down from 15mm to 10mm. These compression ‘hard iron’ fittings are available from plumbers merchants but, then apart from the connection issue, the so called ‘quick installion’ is misleading as you have to go and get more bits. There is no advice note from the seller as to this fact. Leaving that on one side production standard is the usual high grohe standard.
