Deva GE01/501 Georgian Basin Tap : Good finish & feel.

Deva GE01/501 Georgian Basin Tap : Good finish & feel.

Arrived in good timebought these from amazon due to being cheaper than anywhere else. When looking at the taps there were a few different shades of gold, i wanted the lighter shade which they turned out to be. They are not the bright gold, i think that’s just the way the picture has turn out. The way in which these taps turn on is ideal when you don’t have strength to turn tap handle, which is one of the reasons i choose. We tried to fit ourselves, got one on no problem, but due to issues with old taps we ended up getting a plumber to finish off. I also bought matching bath taps/mixer shower from amazon (cheapest around)would recommend.

Arrived on time and works smoothly and well.

Looks good and has a smooth feeling when turning on/off. Have ordered 3 more sets to replace all taps in the house. Here are the specifications for the Deva GE01/501 Georgian Basin Tap:

  • 1/4 turn ceramic disc for rapid on/off flow
  • Ceramic disc technology gives smooth on and off function
  • Suitable for use with flow regulator to reduce water wastage
  • Lever handle basin taps
  • Available in gold plated finish

Comes as a pair not single tap. . Note: this product is for 2 (a pair of) taps, not as it describes 1xtap in the product description. These arrived two days after i ordered them (using amazon prime with plenty of time for guaranteed next day delivery) so was a day after it was dispatched not from day it was ordered. Not a problem but just be aware. Amazon accepted a return and refund for one box with no questions asked and will pick it up too. The taps closely match the light gold colour of my existing bath taps (c. 1996 original bathroom fittings) and complement the white shower handle of the combined tap/shower fitting, though the new tap white is slightly darker, but you’d never really notice. The quarter turn lever is smooth and doesn’t feel notchy, but the hot tap handle doesn’t quite align with the spout even after taking it off (using the screw under the hot/cold label cap) and moving it one tooth further over on the slotted shaft. Maybe there’s a way of adjusting the shaft?the h & c markings on the top are nicely understated. I also noticed that on the taps i returned, one had gold plating missing from the end of the handle.

The taps [there are two in the box despite the product being described as ‘tap’ arrived promptly. In fact there was a small part missing – the insert needed to show it is a hot tap, but full credit to the manufacturers, they have a customer care line, the phone was picked up immediately i rang, the receptionist was very efficient, and the missing part arrived two days later. I already had the equivalent bath taps. ]
