Tapping into our knowledge

Brilliantly simple taps. That’s what we put our heart and soul into here at Bristan and, over 40 years, we’ve accumulated a lot of know-how!

Our own Maria Howley, Bristan’s Technical Product Trainer, has shared some of that knowledge on Plumb App UK and Gas App UK – essential apps for any installer. She hosted a live lounge web stream, with Senior Product Manager, Chris Tranter, providing tips and insights on some of our bestselling taps, and the features that every plumber needs to know about.

As part of her talk, Maria discussed:

The best type of taps to recommend for every space, from ultra-modern to traditionally styled and everything in between
The benefits of our UKAS-tested new valves and ceramic cartridges, which have been tested to 500,000 cycles to ensure Bristan’s taps will stand up to whatever challenges family life throws at them
Our increased guarantee period from 5 to 10 years 
Our unique patented Easyfit fixing system, which allows for easier and simpler installation from the top surface of the sink
The inside track on some of the best home and commercial taps on the market – from popular top sellers to designer taps on a budget to infrared temperature control spouts.

There was also time for a Q&A session, when Maria answered a range of questions from brass nuts to warranties to the speed of an Easyfit kitchen tap installation. 

All in all, a brilliant talk, on a range of topics that are of interest to the plumbing community.
