Burlington Kensington 3" or 5" Basin Taps


For an authentic finishing touch to your traditionally designed bathroom, the Kensington Basin Taps by Burlington will no doubt deliver. Elegant and opulent, these taps come with ceramic lever tap heads with Burlington branded decorative caps to complete the look you've always dreamed of. Burlington have also thoughtfully designed a range of Kensington bath and shower mixer taps so you can create a cohesive look across your beautiful new bathroom.

With ceramic disc technology inside the valves, your new taps will be smooth and easy to use with only the need for a quarter turn to operation. They're also incredibly durable in comparison with older style rubber washers, giving you a drip free tap for longer. You'll also receive a Neoperl Aerator and Flow Straightener for you to optionally install depending on your water pressure, both giving a more consistent, steady flow of water if you have particularly high or low water pressures.

Available with a 3" or 5" spout, you can choose which style would best suit your basin configuration. The 3" option would be well suited to the cloakroom and smaller basin sizes whilst the 5" options would suit a larger basin size. These basin taps are also available in a Regent option which is 3cm taller than the standard tap. The Regent option creates an opulent feel and will ensure compliance with older building regulations.

Features:
• Suitable for both high and low pressure water systems
• Supplied with Neoperl Aerator for high pressure water flow, a Neoperl Flow Straightener for low pressure water flow and a Neoperl Key for installation
• Comes with Ceramic Disc quarter turn technology
• Made from Brass and Chrome Plated
• Waste not included
• 10 year manufacturers guarantee

Your water pressure depends on your home's water system. It’s important to consider water pressure when buying a new tap or shower. Buying a product with a minimum water pressure that’s too high for your home will result in poor performance.

- With a combi boiler you can usually expect between 1 and 2 bar

- With a gravity system (cold water tank in attic) you may have as little as 0.1 or 0.2 bar upstairs, and perhaps 0.5 bar downstairs

- With a high pressure unvented system (hot water cylinder, no cold water tank) you will generally have between 1 and 3 bar

You can install an item with a low minimum pressure rating on a high pressure system, but avoid installing an item with a high minimum rating on a low pressure system! Read our guide to water pressure to learn more.

Tap spouts are available in a variety of different styles which have an effect on both the look and function of your tap. Different spout types will have different heights and projections, so it’s important to choose one which will complement your basin or bath.

Taps use either a ceramic disc cartridge or a rubber compression washer to control flow. Rubber washers will naturally wear down with use, and the tap handle will require more and more rotations to turn on or off. On the plus side, it's very easy to replace a rubber washer and they're available everywhere.

Ceramic disc cartridges need only a 90-degree rotation to fully open or close, and the 2 ceramic plates are incredibly hard-wearing and resilient. They're more expensive to make, but they allow for a huge range of designs, easy operation and simple maintenance if needed.

Whilst it is rare for a ceramic cartridge to need replacing, you may very occasionally need to remove and rinse the cartridge if grit or debris within the water system is preventing the 2 plates from closing properly. Much like replacing a rubber washer, this is a quick and easy job, and will ensure many years of use.
