Smeg MODENA Dual Flow Mixer Tap Swivel Spout Chrome Finish, Great looking tap BUT FAULTY

Very pleased with this purchase.

Great looking tap but faulty. Update to my previous review:although the tap looks great and we’ve got used to the positioning of the handles i am really disappointed with the fact that i have to tighten up the tiny screw at the back of the hot handle at least once a fortnight. It was supplied with a little allen key to enable you to get to the back of the tap easier as obviously you can’t necessarily see the screw hole (unless your sink is positioned in an island- mine isn’t) but it continuously gets loose. We’re not a heavy handed household – there’s only 3 of us and we’re out at work/school all day so it’s not down to over use. Could not recommend this tap now as it seems faulty. Original review: seems to be working fine. Don’t know how easy it was to install as had my kitchen fitter put it in. However would have expected the hot and cold handles to be upright when tap is off but they start off at the bottom and have to lift them up to get the flow of water going. I’m sure we’ll get used to it though.

This tap is the dogs do dahs. It looks really cool and several visitors including a hard to please mother in law have all commented how good it looks. It took about 20 mins to fit so anyone who knows how to hold a spanner can fit it.

Price excellent and looks great in my new kitchen.
