How it works
There are two levers on this tap: one which moves backwards and forwards to give you normal hot or cold water (you just pull it out to turn it on); and another which gives you near-boiling water. You can set the temperature of this one between 75°C and 98°C, and it has a locking mechanism so you don’t need to worry about accidentally turning it on.
This tap is made from low-lead brass – an industry standard that means it’s safe to drink from and incredibly hard-wearing. It also has a durable, high-shine and easy to care for chrome finish. The handles on the other hand are made from white, scratch-resistant ceramic.
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 small turn to be fully on.
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 sink completely, but generally you won’t notice a drop in the pressure.
Made to last
These taps are made to last, but there are parts that are more likely to get damaged, particularly by limescale, such as the ceramic cartridges and aerator. But you can remove these to replace them, and spares are available from Perrin and Rowe.
When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.

Need to knows
The maximum water pressure that our taps can take is three bar and the minimum is 1.5.
All our taps are WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) approved, which means that they won’t contaminate your water or waste it unnecessarily.
