Bristan BTZ 1/2 C Blitz Basin Taps, Handsome and easily fitted taps.

After suffering with severe water hammer in the house and after much elimination we can to the conclusion that it was a basin tap. We have a bristan kitchen tap which we are most please with so gave these a go. Good points:*good quality and finish*nice smooth action on the tap levers*although no removable perlator these taps do not splash even with high water pressure due to the smaller flow rate it really does make a difference. Bad points:*bristan customer care is ‘zero’, poorly informed and they do not know their own products. *on one of the taps the level will not run parallel with the main tap body, but only on the cold tap. Another reviewer has pointed this out. *some of the bristan taps like this one is manufactured elsewhere in the eu so the back nuts are around 24-25mm which is not the standard back nut size. So for home owners installing these taps yourself who do not have every tool in the book or wants to pay another £12 for another box spanner then it could pose an issue. Although not a huge one, personally i would just replace the eu back nuts with the uk standard ones that you can pick up for a quid each from screwfix.

Looks more expensive that the price.

Brill look good they have revamped the basin.

Handsome and easily fitted taps. . Lovely elegant looking taps. Easy to use if like me, you have fingers that don’t work very well. My usband fitted them quitequickly and with no problems.

Bristan BTZ 1/2 C Blitz Basin Taps – Chrome : The build quality of these taps is excellent. I particularly like how they’ve been hollowed out inside. They have a lovely chrome shine to them and come up nicely with some polish when cleaning the bathroom (bad idea to get cif or anything more abrasive than soap on them if you care about keeping the chrome intact for a long time. )a daily wipe down with a damp cloth and some liquid soap is more than enough. The aerator ends are ok but they let a lot of water flow through (the flow is heavy), so we swapped them out for these which i can attest do fit despite not being exactly 20mm (more like 19mm; it’s a bit of a minefield). Tap aerator 20mm male, 4ltr per minute, water, energy saving reduce bills chrome and the result is a nice narrower and foamy flow that drastically reduces water consumption. I would have given 5 stars but for the life of me, i can’t seem to get either handle to attach parallel to their faucet ends 🙁 very irritating.

    High quality and smart appearance. . Delighted with the quality of this product, as well as the very smart appearance. Very solid and well made – my plumber was more than happy to fit them. Hard to see from the picture, but they have a very discreet indicator for hot or cold (red dot/blue dot). I can heartily recommend this product.
