water tap

Post by sewhite1982 on Fri Jan 03, 2014 9:59 am

Hi
I have a 1986 VW autosleeper.  It has electrically pumped cold water to the sink.  Can anyone advise what tap is best for the system (the pipe feeds into the side of the sink and it would need to fold down) and where they can be purchased from?
Thanks, simon

Hi there,

Not quite sure what you are looking for but this model may do the job you describe.

Hi
Thanks that is helpful though Im not sure it would fit as the hole in my sink is on the side rather than the top.  What does it mean "not suitable for pressurised system"?
Many thanks

Hi there,

I think:

o  It is designed to be fitted to the side of the sink and fold down into the bowl.

o  The "not suitable for pressurised systems" means that there is no actual "shut-off" and it is designed for systems whereby you switch the pump "on" and "off" with a switch (or use a manual pump) to get a flow of water.

I may be wrong on both counts.  wave

It certainly is designed to fit on the side of the sink and it swivels so that the whole spout turns horizontal. I had this tap on a caravan 35 years ago with an electric pump switched by a separate control tap on the front of the sink unit.
It does have a shut off - the end of the spout turns to regulate the flow.
Not suitable for pressurised systems because the connection is push fit and could blow off with disastrous consequences. Even if you used a worm drive clip to hold the pipe on I would guess that the glands on the rotating spout would weep under pressure.
You need a separate switch to turn the pump on and off.
