Taps lads. What’s the deal? Prices range from 30quid to 200 for the same looking tap. What should i be looking for…? Thanks in advance
Cc @FatChops @habanerocat anyone else

Heres what im looking at

I don’t know. I’d just hope you’ll get what you pay for.

If you use it a lot and intend staying in the house. A sink and tap is probably something the wife, I’ll blame her, wouldn’t change just for the sake of it.

I forked out the big bucks recently for the downstairs sink. They should see me down.

Got good ones a few years ago for the upstairs bathroom. The chrome is already corroding off them.

I go to Screwfix for a lot of stuff but I don’t know if I’d go there for taps to be honest. Ask your plumber.

Go into your local plumber’s merchant and don’t make eye contact with anyone. Look at the taps, big scowl on your face, and ignore the first offer of service if it comes. Report back.

That’s the sort of task I’m perfect for!

Almost all kitchen taps these days are the same mixer design, some have the hose detachment which I find useful. The quality is what you’ll pay for. Gröhe are top of the line, German precision. Start there and look down. Might find something for sale online. Avoid Screwfix. Pure. Scutter.
