    taps

    No they aren't the same. First we have two ways of attaching the pipes, push fittings or clamp on.

    Secondly we have different size holes in the worktop.

    Thirdly we have electrical switches or pressure switches.

    Do your homework before ordering.

    I have a new boxed Reich single lever kitchen mixer tap which we got for our Chausson Flash 04 but we changed vans so didn't need it.

    It is similar to the one below, however as there are variations on this type (size/height of spout etc), I'll need to measure it to check exactly which one it is (although I know it isn't a microswitch version).

    Open to offers! :BigGrin:

    Rob I knew the old motorhome was poorly but isn't this a bit extreme


    "Of all the military bugle calls, none is so easily recognized or more apt to render emotion than the call Taps. The melody is both eloquent and haunting and the history of its origin is interesting and somewhat clouded in controversy. In the British Army, a similar call known as Last Post has been sounded over soldiers' graves since 1885, but the use of Taps is unique with the United States military, since the call is sounded at funerals, wreath-laying and memorial services."
