This has been well made and has a nicely polished finish, it comes in one piece not in separate pieces and does not come apart. This has a 15mm standard UK copper water inlet pipe which is suitable for bathroom basins, kitchen sinks, camper van conversions and outdoor sinks but may not be suitable for some baths which have a different size pipe connection, check before buying if this is for a bath.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I buy a pair of these taps?
-Yes, for a pair please order from Vintage Style Brass Taps Copper Taps – All Things French Store

I would like to buy more than the number of taps listed as available. Do you have any more than the listing shows?
-Yes we do. We limit the number of taps on each listing in order to keep to our dispatch times but we do have at least 6 of each style of tap ready to make. Please contact us if you want to buy more than the number available and we will increase the listing.

If the tap is unsuitable, can I return it for a refund?
-We do accept returns, however, these are made to order and are not a stock item so, as a small business we would ask that you measure carefully and ask any questions before buying to be sure you are ordering the right tap for you and to allow us to keep losses and therefore prices to a minimum.

The measurements available are not suitable for me, can the tap be made any taller?
-This tap cannot be made any taller as the 15mm copper pipework would not be strong enough. However, we have another style of tap which has 22mm copper pipework meaning it can be made taller. See the Copper Sinks and Taps section of our website shop or contact us with your measurements and we will do our best to help.

Do you sell any other style of copper and brass taps?
-Yes we do. See the Copper Sinks and Taps section of our website shop where you will find 4 or 5 different styles including single and pairs of pillar taps, more wall mounted taps as well as a beautiful mixer tap in copper and brass.

What size is this tap?
-Please see measurements on the photographs in the listing for exact sizes.

What size is the water inlet pipework?
-All our taps have the standard 15mm water inlet pipework, this is the pipe below the countertop where the water is connected.

Can this be fitted directly into a basin or sink?
-No, this tap does not fit into basin or sink pre cast holes. This is designed to fit onto a countertop. This is fitted by screwing the brass base into the top of the counter from above using the screws provided. This not not fitted using a back nut.

Is this tap suitable for a bath?
-This tap will be suitable for some baths, although this style is generally sold for basins and sinks as it has a water inlet pipe which is a 15mm diameter. Some baths, particularly in older houses have a water inlet pipe of 22mm. Please check with your plumber or fitter if you are unsure of your pipe size if you are buying for a bath, or message us for advice.

Can this be fitted in a shepherds hut or camper van?
-Yes, all our taps can be fitted in a shepherds hut, we have sold many of these for camper vans, shepherds huts and horse box conversions. NB. Camper van pipework is usually smaller than standard 15mm so you will need to use a reducing fitting to join this to the inlet pipe. These are readily available at any plumbers or DIY merchant.

Can I use your taps as outdoor taps?
-Yes, all the taps we make are suitable for outdoor use.

How do I connect this to my water inlet?
- This is sold as complete tap fitting which has the standard UK 15mm copper pipe attached below the counter where it is fitted. Your water inlet pipe can be attached to the tail end by soldering, compression fittings or push fit fitments.

Can your taps be fitted to a quartz, slate or marble type counter top?
-No, none of our taps can be fitted to this type of worktop as they are fitted from above and these type of countertops would not take the small drill holes required. We are looking to develop a tap for these types of counters but this is still in the design stage.

How often will I need to polish my taps to keep them shiny and what should I use?
- Copper and brass are metals that naturally tarnish over time if left unpolished. A quick buff up every week or 2 will keep it shiny. We use Brasso wadding to keep our taps shiny. This is available at most supermarkets. Rub some wadding over the taps, let it dry for 15 minutes and buff it off with a yellow duster. If you would prefer the more rustic natural brown patina of copper then leave them unpolished and this colour will develop over time.

When will my order arrive?
-All our taps are made to order with a usual dispatch time of 3-5 days. However, this can occasionally vary as we travel between the UK and France regularly between April October. Please check the listing for an up-to-date delivery estimate. Contact us before buying if your order is urgent as these can also often be sent earlier especially when we are home in the Winter full time. All our taps are posted by Royal Mail Tracked 48 or 24 if urgent.

I have another question or I need some more advice about what tap to buy, can you help?
-Yes we can. These are made by Martin who is a gas engineer and plumber. He is more than happy to answer questions regarding tap size, style and fitting. Please contact us via live chat or online contact form


I would like to talk to a real person about my requirements, is it possible to call you?
-Yes it is. As we spend several months of the year in France the quickest way to contact us is usually via live chat where you will be spoken to by Louise or Martin not a chat bot. This is the safest way to discuss your order as it protects both ourselves as a seller and yourself as a buyer and keeps a record of all conversations. When we are at home we are usually in our workshop, which is quite noisy so we do not always hear the phone or Martin is on a callout. If you would like to talk to us about your requirements please either leave a message on our answerphone 01772 494985 or send us your contact details on live chat, contact form or email and a brief description of your question and we will call you back.
