The tap is lovely and feels well-made. The three taps are ideal for the filtered water setup. It's got a nice easy feel for turning the taps. They are each labelled H and C but must be more evident for my Liking. The 360-degree spout rotation is excellent. The aerator works well. The finishing is beautiful. Filter: I'm disappointed overall with this filter cp61 cartridge. It was initially fine and gave good filtered water (for about 1 month), but very quickly, the drop in quality was noted not just by taste but by a build-up of limescale in a brand new kettle in 3 months. ( all pipes are new, kettle new, tap new) no excuse for poor performance when it's rated for 6 months or 4k litres of water. I wonder if the filters can or should be doubled up in a series for extra filtration, but this would become costly with additional cartridges to replace. I tried running the taps at varied speeds (pressure) from the handle and couldn't eliminate the limescale build-up. I understand the filter will gradually lose effectiveness, but I have doubts about its advertised ability. Otherwise, the whole package is nice and an upgrade from my old setup.
Nice tap but with all three tails, the same length is not easy to install in the typical behind/under the sink space. At least one of the tails needs to be a different length to allow them to pass through the lock nut
