Bristan N 1/2 C CD 1901 Basin Pillar Taps : Not yet Installed

Big improvement on previous bristan taps as these have stops rather than rubber washers which always failed in my experience.

There are cheaper alternatives; but don’t bother. Pay a little extra for the best.

So far the bristan taps have cured both problems and seem to be fine. . These taps replaced two i had put in in january this year, the hot tap of which was causing ‘waterhammer’ and brown water to run out at the beginning of each flow.

Quality product and easily fitted. I approached tap replacement with some trepidation, not knowing how much i needed to spend to get something well made, durable and reasonably smart. These looked good, seemed to be from a reputable manufacturer and at £90 for two pairs were cheaper than i’d anticipated. On opening the package they more than lived up to expectations. I was going to call the plumber to fit them but after a bit of internet research decided to try it myself. A basin wrench (£3) and a screwdriver were the only tools needed and the whole process took about 3 hours for two basins, including cleaning with pumice to remove the limescale. Four weeks on there are no leaks and the taps are still a pleasure to use.

Bristain 1901 basin taps chrome plated. I’d spent ages browsing the usual high street stores for replacement taps for my main bathroom hand basin, but everying i had seen that was similar was really expensive and not particularly well-made or robust. These taps were perfect as a replacement for the existing ones of a very similar style but different make. My husband had no problem fitting them – no leaks or dripsfor the price they are very good quality heavy duty taps, and i would certainly recommend these to other customers.

We needed the longer reach to stop water running back from taps over the soap dish area, etc. These long nosed ones did just the job and look so very smart with the porcelain inserts. Great company, swift delivery of a well packaged item.

    18 months on, the chrome finish has started to flake, and one of the cartridges needs replacing. Would have expected a better life expectancy than that, even though these were not exactly expensive.

I guess this is because the tap spout is angled downards towards the basin. This should be ok but it is a little irritating especially as having put up with non-cd taps for a while i expect to tighten the tap when i see that little stream of water after use.

    Great quality, looks and feels far superior to the ones i replaced. Was informed the delivery time would be 5 – 6 days, flabbergasted when they arrived 22 hours after ordering.
