Unbelievably Cheap and Nasty Rubbish Designed to fail in no time (Serena sink mixer)
Do NOT waste your money buying this cheap rubbish. Everything about this Estilo Serena Kitchen Sink Mixer is CHEAP and NASTY. The base is too small to sit in the sink hole properly making it very difficult to align. The O-ring seal doesn't sit inside the groove. Instead it falls out and moves around during installation. The hoses are very cheap and flimsy and wont last long. Besides they are way too short so you will need to buy the mixer hose extension kit. Furthermore I bought this to replace a kitchen mixer that had split in the goose neck s...o spraying water everywhere. Guess what brand it was? Yep It was an Estilo. No wonder Bunnings only offers a 12 month warranty on Estilo mixers. Never buying an Estilo mixer again. I recommend you spend a few extra dollars and buy the Mondella Cadenza mixer from Bunnings which comes with 10 year warranty or the Ikea Lagan kitchen sink mixer for a similar price.

Cheap flimsy hoses
Bought and installed two of these from Bunnings. Not a plumber, but it is not a complicated job.
As others have said, the hoses are thin and delicate.
My kitchen installation, with lots of space and well oriented incoming pipes went perfectly.
Laundry installation was a disaster. The incoming pipes were angled awkwardly and there is very little space. This resulted in the hoses kinking, and of course miserable water pressure.
The previous hoses were the same length, but thicker and more durable, so simply resisted the strain of the 180 degree bend in the tight space they were required to make. The Estillo hoses kinked in multiple places, and two hours of fiddling accomplished nothing.

There’s lots of neg reviews about this Estilo and negative towards Bunnings for stocking it, but they all fail to realise that Bunnings stock a wide variety to suit every body's budget. So those who are whinging about poor quality - buy the more expensive brand, if the cheap brands were just as good quality, then they wouldn't be cheap. I installed one of these. Just have to be more careful hoses don't twist or kink when installing. Use a bit of thread tape in addition to the supplied rubber washer and ensure the aerator is clear of debris after turning water main back on. They have been surveyed by Canstar Blue, read that for a more accurate rating of performance. Works great, no issues, good water pressure, no leaks.

Vege Spray Tap worked fine for 24 hours. Then, after initial turn on, the tap would shudder and drop flow. Also, I fully purged the new tap after initial install. But then when assessing the above problem after 1 week, I found rubber pieces in the aerator. Looks good. Cheap. Avoid this brand.

Purchased one of these in February 2019 from Bunnings Loganholme, which started leaking in June 2020 from a casting fault in the outlet pipe. (16months old). Returned it to Bunnings who insisted I was not entitled to a refund. I disputed this, and after considerable discussion with a quite-rude Team Member, was refunded. Bunnings should review their responsibility under consumer law. Don't buy Estilo!

washers supplied with taps disintegrate
after fitting the wall stops purchased from Bunnings I tested the shower only to discover the white plastic washers supplied with the stops had disintegrated 10 minutes after installation so I checked the washing machine stops in which the washers had also disintegrated also the disclaimer that voids the warrantee if not installed by a plumber was glued inside the box making it difficult to see, not honest!

I bought this product in February 2018 and on Christmas Eve water started to pour out of the underside, when I went back to Bunnings I was told there was only a 12 month warranty. I won’t be buying an Estilo product ever again.

estilo water tap
I bought this tap from Bunnings 2 days ago . plumber installed it and it is a piece of crap. pressure very low and the cold and hot hoses supplied were like cigarette paper. the 20 yr old hoses were much better than the supplied hoses. I paid $50 for it thinking it would do the job but unfortunately it was trash straight from the garbage truck. keep away from it cause your plumber will charge you even though you will have no functional unit sitting above the sink. Last time I bought another tap for the toilet from Bunnings every time I went to use it, it gave me a shower and watered all the ceiling. keep away from Bunnings for all plumbing accessories. Ill be taking the tap back to them asap.

Wish I'd read these reviews before purchasing
I bought a Estilo WELS 4 Star 7.5L/min 40mm Allana Cast Basin Mixer from Bunniings. It worked fine for about 10 days but now one side has very low pressure. I checked its not the feeding hoses with a blockage- its the tap. I tried swapping around the hot & cold hoses feeding the tap, same problem. The tap just has very low pressure on the left side. I am very disappointed, it's such a poor product!!!

I Agree With the One-Star Reviews
My sprayer model lasted 18 months (six beyond the warranty). The plastic that holds the sprayer on broke. Gluing with super-glue wouldn't last long if at all. I do not recommend this brand.

I purchased an Estila sink mixer that did not work from installation. These are cheap for a reason. I purchased a Dorf mixer that works perfectly. Do not purchase a mixer tap for less than $100. Estila taps are guaranteed for one year only, Dorf are guaranteed for 10 years. I would never purchase any Estila products again. The Bunnings staff didn’t question a credit as they get many returned.
Do not buy
On installation one of the lines blew off the tap as soon as the plumber turned the water on. It was repaired by the plumber and worked ok for 7 months until it started to leak and broke again this time at a different part. Do not buy it is cheap rubbish
Easy to fit and seems good value compared to some European models.
The Zucchetti it replaced has a price tag of $299.
At $35 there was no choice to be made.
Questions & Answers
Need a new spayhead part for Estilo Chrome Tall Vege Spray Coil Sink Mixer , The innards of the spray head blew off and went down the running insinkerator
The handle has come off my basin-mixer tap in the bathroom. Do I need a whole new tap or can the handle be re-installed. I have tried a few things without success:( Cathy
Does Estilo tapware meet Australian standards regarding lead in drinking water.
Has to meet Australuan standards otherwise can't be sold here. With these cheaper ones, more care has to be taken with installation. The hose that comes with them are weaker than the hose off the shelf at Bunnings.
