It's a Methven tap, probably 15 - 20 years old but in good condition. The hoses look very much like the ones I purchased from M10, which say they're good for hot or cold.


Don't know if you have already done this but here is the relevant Methven website page - Yours looks similar to the present Echo Strata Sink Mixer All their taps have pretty good info & installation downloadable PDF fact sheets.



Good tip, thanks. They're written for plumbers or experienced people, not people like me, but should give me a pretty reasonable idea of how to do it :)

lapimate: The tap end (right at the top) flanges of the hot (red indicator thread) and cold flexible pipes look different to me in the image so perhaps they are proprietary fittings?...


I think that's right.  It looks more like a Methven Celeste. If I'm not mistaken the flexibles are crimped to the solid extensions at the top, and the hot & cold are different, both at the hose and at the top.  So they could be proprietary.


Anyway the best way get to them is to undo the flexibles from the wall nipples, take the nuts off the mounting studs (maybe two, hidden behind the hoses in you picture) and lift the whole thing out of the bench.

I'll take it off on the weekend and have a look. If I need different hoses that's ok, it just means I put it back in and do it another day.
