What is the best tap I can buy
The best tap you can buy depends on a multiple of question starting from the water pressure and the bathroom design. Like most people they have basic bathrooms where any tap will look good. Taps can go faulty within the first 5 year so our first thoughts go to the guarantee. The the overall winner for the best taps we believe would be Bristan.
How long is my tap guaranteed for
If the guarantee is not stated on a product it will have a standard 12-months guarantee. There are manufactures that can have a 5 year guarantee such as Bristan. I came across a customer the other day who had a Bristan tap that went faulty where the listing price was £450 on the Bristan website. He had no receipt and was adamant that he wanted to buy a new tap but cheaper because he couldn’t afford a new tap. However I manage to talk to him on how to claim a new valve. Happy customer. So the best tap for a guarantee is the Bristan in my opinion.
I have no receipt on my tap do I still have a guarantee
For allot of occupants, having or keeping the receipt is almost impossible. Does having no receipt void the guarantee? If you have no receipt and can prove that the tap is not older than 5-years then the answer is, you are most likely going to get a tap replacement or have a new tap valve for the tap sent to you. Just below are some tips.
- Prove of how old the bathroom is.
- Receipt of the bathroom fitter.
- Contact the contractors or the builders to the house.
- Prove at least one thing in the bathroom is not older than 5-years
In most cases when calling the Bristan team you may find them very helpful and will just send you a replacement valve. It is very important to do as much investigating on your tap as possible, saving you your hard earned money. So the best tap customer service will go to Bristan.
Which tap is the best for maintenance
Tap with bad maintenance are most likely going to be very cheap which includes taps that come from abroad. When you buy a tap, it is very important you get the right advice, which may not come from your plumber, unless he has plenty enough experience, rather than just picking up the cheapest, rather than losing there custom. Most decent taps should be easy enough to maintain. Martin Smith believe that the best tap for maintenance is the Victorian range due to it’s bulky grips when it comes to using spanner.
Which tap is most likely going to last the longest
The best tap that have proven to last the longest are good old fashion taps such as the victorian or sometimes good old basic british standard taps. The washers are bulky and able to take more wear and tear.
What is the average life span to a tap
Taps can go at any time depending on the quality, the water pressure, the type of water, the fitting, the maintenance and what type of tap you have. As for the Bristan taps, Martin believe’s have not been around long enough to say how long they can last for. When most bathrooms are taken out these day we find they are most likely to have the original tap or maybe a tap they have replaced in the last 5-years. So going by this we could say the average tap may last about 15-years.
What is the Cheapest taps to buy
You can buy a pair of taps for about £15 but always keep in mind in most cases, you get what you pay for.
What are the latest tap in fashion
Taps are always changing in fashion but the latest taps Martin believe is the waterfall tap which you can buy from about £60 upwards depending on the quality and where you buy them from.
How much do taps cost on average
On average consumers tend to spend about £50 to £100.
