"Taps" is a bugle call during flag ceremonies and at military funerals by the United States Armed Forces. The official military version is played by a single bugle or trumpet, although other versions of the tune may be played in other contexts (e.g., the U.S. Marine Corps Ceremonial Music site has recordings of two bugle versions and one band version). It is also performed often at Girl Guide, Girl Scout, and Boy Scout meetings and camps. The tune is also sometimes known as "Butterfield's Lullaby", or by the first line of the lyric, "Day Is Done". The duration may vary to some extent.

    gradual slow hot flow all taps

    This is probably a basic one, but just wanted to check. Hot water flow to all taps has gradually been getting slower over time and the thermostatic shower now needs to be turned up hotter to get a reasonable shower temperature. Its a vented cylinder heated by an oil boiler and the cylinder stat...

    Isolator valves on basin taps

    Hi I have always had a poor water delivery to my bathroom and en-suit basins. The cold is just about acceptable but the hot is pathetic coming from the tank on the same floor. Both rooms have isolator valves fitted in the correct direction and then to flexi tails that just reduce the flow...

    Durability of Bristan taps

    Just fitted new cartridge to a 1901 basin tap. Instead of being a quick easy job it took quite some time due to corrosion of the shroud. There was also some corrosion of the handle. The taps are nearly six years old. It was the hot water tap and there is a water softener fitted. I also have...

    How do I remove sealant around shower taps?

    Hi. I recently bought a house and the shower is leaking. I'm guessing it just needs the washers replaced. However, when I started to have a look I noticed some kind of sealant between the tap body and the opening in the tiles. I can't get to the tap with a spanner to unscrew it as the sealant is...

    New taps, poor flow rate

    Fitted these new bathroom taps yesterday. Hooked them up to 15mm pipe work which is on a gravity fed system. Upon first use it was obvious the flow rate was much worse than the old taps. Other than the taps themselfs, the only difference was that i had to fit a 15-10 mm reducer from the...

    No hot water to bath taps. Everywhere else is fine.

    Hi everyone. We have installed a new shower kit (over the bath). Not touched the bath mixer taps (thermostatic mixer) other than to replace the old hose with a new hose. Ever since, we have not had hot water in the bath taps. Not even warm, just freezing cold. Is this going to be an expensive fix?

    Freestanding bath; standard taps

    Insinkerator boiling tap

    Hi looking for some advice. My inlaws have an insinkerator boiling and cold tap (model number HC3300 c). It was leaking from the handle so naturally I didn’t think it would take much to change a washer or cartridge. I should also explain that I have been a pipefitter for last 5 years but I admit...
