Recommended extras

We've hand-picked these items because they are a great choice alongside the Proflow Altera Bath Filler Tap

Proflow Altera Bath Filler


A beautifully versatile range of taps that effortlessly blend elements of the modern, square style with a softer, more rounded look. The Proflow Altera range of taps are a top quality offering with ceramic disc technology, a 5 year guarantee, and a range of basin and bath options.

Features:
• Proflow Altera taps are manufactured by Crosswater Holdings, a renowned bathroom brand with many years of experience. As such they are very high quality, with excellent flow rates and quality chrome-plating.
• Chrome plated
• Ceramic disc cartridge
• Suitable for low and high pressure systems, including combi-boilers, gravity systems, pumped and unvented. A minimum of 0.2 bar is recommended, which equates to a 2m drop on gravity systems.
• Flow rate at low pressure (0.2 bar pressure) is 20 litres per minute

These taps are specifically made to work well even on low pressure gravity systems. A general rule of thumb with brassware is that only taps that are more expensive perform well on the UK's low pressure water systems. The Altera range, however, is not only great with lower pressures, it is also available at a low price.

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.

Guarantee

All of our brand partners and manufacturers offer a warranty as standard. Please note that these guarantees are provided by the manufacturer, and will be subject to individual terms and conditions, for example avoiding abrasive bleach-based cleaning products.

If you need further info about a specific manufacturer's guarantee, please contact our team.

 
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.
