For the last 4 years we have endured a "splashy tap". Just operating it caused splashing around the sink and surrounding area, including ourselves! This great little device from Lakeland (costing less than a tenner) has done away with all that. Moreover we can now use the swivel head and spray function for swishing round the sink after washing up. Our mixer tap doesn't have a screw fitting, but the adaptor designed for straight ended taps worked fine. We used some smears of vaseline to help push it over the end of the tap, and this gave a really tight fit. No need for the clamp. Brilliant!

Early days, but it works very well and I've already ordered another one for my Mum! I did have to use some PTFE tape to seal the thread into the tap, but it wasn't a big issue.

FANTASTIC - GOLD STARS!!!”
A wonderful invention which turns your plain tap in a swivel head which makes it SO much easier to clean the sink. Although that would be good enough on its own, you also get the choice of a lovely spray head or a super aerated water flow. Cannot recommend this highly enough! 5 gold stars!

When I first bought and installed this gadget I thought it was amazing. However, after about a month it suddenly fell out of the tap. I found it impossible to screw back in. Thinking I may have somehow damaged it I bought a new one and exactly the same thing happened again. Blaming my tap rather than the gadget I bought one for a neighbour as a Christmas present. And exactly the same thing happened to him. Conclusion: nice gadget, shame about the cheap plastic adapters.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry the adapter hasn't worked for you. We'll be in touch shortly to help.
For the price it is an excellent product, not as good as a proper inbuilt unit but remarkable for the ease of installation and low price. it doesn't work as well unless the tap is turned on fully . A good product overall -Well done lakeland .

I have just bought my second one of these, the first one has lasted 5 years but is now clogged up with scale. This is such a good idea. The only thing I have noticed when I pushed down the collar for the spray function is that it is not as good as my old one and feels a bit loose as if it might slip back on its own.

This is one of the best bits of kit I've got in my kitchen! Husband loves it too surprisingly. I can highly recommend it and fitting took all of 10 seconds :)

Good but ...”
I bought this as I was fed up with the tap being too close to the worktop. It fits well (without an adaptor) in my case and doesn't leak and is great for moving the water to the centre of the sink. However when swivelling the unit it is far too easy to switch the spray to shower mode which then ends up on the opposite work top. Needs to be a bit harder to pull down and then it would be 5 stars

Have had one of these for a few years but this new one makes it much easier to change the water flow. Wouldn't be without it.

This is absolutely brilliant! What a great idea. Very easy to install with thanks for the tip about descaling otherwise I don't think I would have been able to do it. Will now get one for my utility room tap. Thank you again Lakeland. Another great idea!

Saved a Fortune!”
Our current tap had a problem in that the bit on the end of the spout (with the filter in it) had broken. Our local superstore advised us we'd have to buy a new tap unless we knew the make of our current one! Not a cheap option. During a shopping event evening in our local Lakeland we spotted this item and decided to give it a try. BRILLIANT is the only word to describe it. I did have a problem with it coming off but hubby swapped the fitting for one of the others that was supplied and it's more snug than ever! Love it :-)

Tap is brilliant, adapters less so”
We bought the black tap adapta about two weeks ago. The tap itself is brilliant! The adapters were the weak point. The size that fit our tap leaked, even with 7 turns of teflon (PTFE) tape! Then we had the idea of removing the O-ring and replacing it with a thicker O-ring. Leak fixed! I'm giving it only 4 stars because we had to figure out how to stop the leaking adapter.

Turns a normal tap into a £100 tap”
Brilliant - made our tap as versatile as one with a flexible hose which would have cost a lot of money. The spray attachment makes rinsing the sink out really easy and uses less water. Would highly recommend it.

Perfect buy. Does exactly what it advertises. A suggestion for hard water areas. It is so easy to take on and off - take it off once a week (or whenever you want) and spray with the well known "lime and grime" anti limescale spray. Leave for as long as you can. Sorted!!

Frustrated no longer- Delighted!”
by Mrs Thompson
I had high hopes rather than expectation for this, as it was the only thing I could pin hope on to relieve my frustration of a poorly located kitchen tap in our caravan. Well, it met hope and EXCEEDED any expectations I might've had. I have had to use the rubber fitment as the thread system on the caravan tap isn't the same as any of the attachments BUT it really doesn't matter because it is BRILLIANT! Now I can rinse things without water going in all directions; and because of the swivel and spray option it really has made the tap practical and SO much easier to use. I'm DELIGHTED with this!

This works perfectly, the various fittings provided in the pack ought to fit almost all different types of taps. My husband took about two minutes to put this on our tap and it works like a treat! I've always wanted something like this and it means I probably use less water with the spray function as it reaches larger surfaces at the same time. It's great that it has two functions, too. I can thoroughly recommend this to everyone!

We have a really old tap and I was sure this wouldn't fit although had to give it a go as it was our last choice before having to buy a new tap. The Adapta fitted perfectly. No drips or leaks, a really good fit. It took a few goes to find the right adapter but in the end I was really pleased. The wife can now do the washing up without moaning!!!

Excellent Customer Service”
I wasn't sure this tap adaptor would fit my tap from the web description, but received excellent and very friendly Customer Service by phone from Lakeland explaining the fitting I would need. With a bit of elbow grease to push the adaptor on to the spout securely, it does fit my round mixer tap using the outside connector, and I'm really delighted with it. I am sure it saves water on the fine spray, and is just so much more efficient in all sorts of ways than the normal jet. As other reviewers have said, particularly great for washing round the sinks. Well done Lakeland!

Absolutely fantastic. I was so fed up of getting soaked by my kitchen tap and not able to afford a new one I thought i'd give this a try ... amazing ... and a fantastic price too. Can't believe the difference. I smile every time I turn the tap on.
