Butler & Rose Loretta Traditional Bath Pillar Taps


Modern technology and design seems to be taking over the world. Everywhere you look the old and traditional ways are being forgotten about; cast aside like Steve Brookstein's singing career. One area that has always had a soft spot for the traditional is bathroom design, and if you like period styling, you still have plenty of choice.

One brand that is at the forefront is Butler & Rose, and the Loretta bath pillar taps are just another example of them doing what they do best; exquisitely detailed taps and incredible prices. The Loretta bath pillar taps may look old, but they are made using the most modern techniques and materials, so as well as solid brass construction with chrome plating, you also get ceramic disc cartridges which completely eliminate those annoying drips. The Loretta bath pillar taps also come with a 10 year guarantee.

10 year guarantee

Minimum Water Pressure

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.

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.
