V pleased look great not yet fitted but sure they will work as well as they look.

However, the hot water handle didn’t sit nicely with the main body of the tap. We spoke to grohe over the phone and they said there was a problem. Amazon, as usual, was very good – they sent two sets of replacement taps, each with the hot water tap slightly squint. Then we got this email from grohe that we can actually ‘calibrate’ the handle yourself by pulling the handle out of the main body (don’t worry, you’ll not break it, but you need to hold the main body down while you’re doing it), then reattach it at the correct angle. I’m attaching this to this review so that other users can see it with the message from grohe ‘you can pull the handles off and realign them’ – this will save you time and hassle, especially when we were in a panic as we were in the middle of having our bathroom done up.

GROHE 23498000 Get Basin Mixer Tap : Lovely taps but difficult to keep clean in a hard water area. . Great taps but be warned if you live in a hard water area – the top of the spout and the handle on the taps are perfectly flat and sit without a slope in the basin. This looks lovely but unfortunately the water doesn’t run off them when splashed and so it tends to build up water marks very quickly. And when i say quickly – almost every time you use them. This does come off easily when sprayed with cleaner (i’ve been using grohs own bathroom cleaner spray but it is quite expensive for £20 per 500ml bottle). In hindsight i should have bought taps that have a curved design to stop the water sitting on them when splashed.

  1. Quality taps but keep a cloth handy to clean them. Being fitted next month so can’t comment on actual usage as yet. Now had taps fitted and although they look very nice, i agree with the other reviewer – as the taps are flat the water lays on top and does not run off so you have to wipe them clean after every use. Not much of a hardship i know but these are the first taps i’ve had to do this with. I guess its a price to pay for a modern design.
