Bristan VAL 1/2 C CD Chrome Plated Lever Basin Taps : Too good to be true!

Exactly what i expected and delivery excellent.

Arrived earlier then stated.

The overall quality of these taps seems to be very good. They turn on and off very smoothly. So much easier with just having a quarter-turn from off-to-on. Here are the specifications for the Bristan VAL 1/2 C CD Chrome Plated Lever Basin Taps:

  • Operates on a minimum operating pressure of 0.2 bar, maximum of 7.0 bar.
  • Supplied with 3″ (76mm) metal levers.
  • 1/4 Turn 1/2″ Ceramic disk valves.
  • Flow rate – 11.5 litres per minute @ 0.4 bar pressure.
  • Inlet connection 1/2″ BSP.
  • Suitable for all plumbing systems within specified operating pressures.
  • Supplied with Metal backnut.
  • Chrome Plated to BS EN 248.

Good quality – finished to high standard. Good quality and i’d expect years of use. All metal construction with a high standard finish. I did a fair bit of research before buying these and i’m very happy with the purchase. I was just looking to change heads and cartridge in old taps but think that’s a false economy. Taps do wear out so best to install a new one for all the difference in price.

Both my wife and self are nonogenarians and suffering from restricted grip hence the purchase. Product, delivery and function proved itto be just the job.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Too good to be true!
  • Really good taps, used them to replace the ones in
  • all brass construction

Good, simple, easy to use 1/4 turn ceramic disc taps. No more washerslook to be good quality as well. Wish i had changed them years ago.

    These were being offered by amazon at such an amazing price. It was cheaper to replace my existing brisbane taps than to change the cartridges because of these were being offered by amazon at such an amazing price.

  5. Recommend you buy centralizing washers (eg. Fitting these took 5 minutes. (taking off the old ones took nearer 10 hours) very smooth operation in use, and they look good. Recommend you buy centralizing washers (eg, splitclick) for the basin and felt washers for the pipe attachment. In fact, i think that bristan could do with including the centralizing washers with the taps.

      1. Really good taps, used them to replace the ones in. Really good taps, used them to replace the ones in the downstairs toilet and very happy with them. As i have two little kids i wanted taps that were easy for them to turn of and more importantly, off without any issues. These work perfect – no more going into the toilet to a running/dripping tap because they had wet hands and couldn’t turn them off properly. They look really good quality and install easily as well.
