Hello - just moved house and have inherited a classic bathroom suite (avocado). We're keeping it for the moment, but need to do a bit of work to the taps. All are difficult to stop dripping and not very attractive any more. I bought some tap reviver tops but they didn't fit. Googling, I can't find any pictures that look like the basin washers, and can't find reviver kits or new tops for them or the bath ones. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Many thanks. Bath taps say BS1010 3/4 no.28 on them.

I would just go and buy a set of trade taps from my local merchant and fit them. I pay about 12 quid for a pair.

...are you sure its avocado...?
it might be Sage Green but not
champagne ...fitted all that stuff years ago...choclate brown, parrot yellow, cerise, even black
then 7 years later we ripped it all out and back to....white...£33.00 its a no brainer and you get a shower head

The basin taps I'm pretty sure are Pegler. Unf Pegler no longer do any taps.

The bath is a three hole set but that can be converted to two single taps. Personally, in this instance, I'd buy taps from the instinct range. They are very reasonable, pretty well made too, so you'd mose likely be able to reuse later.

2 separate taps for your bath ones and a hole blank for where spout is.

Think you maybe a little muddled up? Bath tap looks standard, basin looks 3 hole?

Who makes Peglers taps then?

Prob :(

Pegler stopped making taps on Jan 1st 2019. Another company in the group (Comap in Lancashire) have taken over (so far as I understand) the former Pegler contracts (such as making for the merchant brand Instinct). However the Pegler brand cannot be used or referenced.
