Made to last
These taps are made to last, but there are parts that are more likely to get damaged, whether by limescale or wear and tear – from the ceramic cartridges and aerator to the handles and ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ caps. But these can all be removed for replacing, and spares are available from Lefroy Brooks.
Every tap in our collection is made from low-lead brass – an industry standard that means they’re safe to drink from and incredibly hard-wearing. The handles on the other hand are made from white, scratch-resistant ceramic.
Chrome-coated (as is the plug), it’s a finish that’s timeless as well as a durable, high-shine and easy to care for.
The details: ceramic cartridges
Most taps have either rubber washers or ceramic cartridges inside to control the flow of water. These use the latter because they’re much more resilient. They also give you more control over the flow, so the levers only need a quarter turn to be fully on.
The details: the aerator
Also known as a flow regulator, an aerator is a small sieve-like piece that’s fitted discreetly into the end of the tap’s spout. Its job is to mix air in with the water so you’ll use less. It may take a little longer to fill your basin completely, but generally you won’t notice a drop in the pressure.
The details: the plug
The pop-up waste is a lovely extra feature of this tap that means you needn’t reach into the basin to unplug it. It’s controlled by the lever mounted onto the back of the spout, which is why it’s only included with this style of tap.
