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!

Tall basin taps
Ordered 2x tall basin taps online which have been received. Didn’t get any warranty with my online order of 2 x tall basin taps. Please send warranty’s ASAP, or the taps will be returned
Purchased in February 2020 for $148.00.
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
Estilo quality is not good
We have 2 Estilo units purchased after the original Dorf units started to leak. The Estilo taps were installed in both kitchen and laundry facilities and in both cases they leaked. The design relies on a moulded seal at the base of a cartridge and if it is not correctly located on two location pegs it will leak. The Dorf unit is rather more expensive and relies on special spring loaded rubber seals pushing against a special stainless steel sphere. The Dorf unit eventually leaked after 10 years but the Estilo leaked on day one in both cases.
We are happy to pay for quality but it is hard to find.
repairing your estilo sink mixer
Estilo, I was also attracted to the Estilo $29 price tag. After some 2.5 years mine also started leaking at the swivel seals.
Now being smart I bought a cartiridge at the time of purchase of $29 Estilo.
OK we need to remove estilo to gain access to swivel seals, it is awkward to remove but doable.
The swivel is removed after removing the lower nut, to expose the seals. Of course the seals are of estilo proprietry style and the groove is non standard.
I have an array of inch and metric o rings after 4 attempts using different combination of seals I have finally made it stop leaking,
The swivel is a little tight, lets see what happens.
Leaked from day one.
Although not a Tradie, I've installed taps and have done a fair bit of plumbing for an average person, for our home and takeaway food outlet. This tap never installed well and has always had a bit of a leak but due to our busy schedule, we made do with a little drip tray underneath the sink. 18months later we're at the end of its life. Leaking from the tap head to the base, more water coming out else where than where it's supposed to, of no further use and beyond repair.
Deeply regret going cheap. It's a poorly made product that promises...
12 month warranty, broken after less than 1.5y
Sadly I've had the exact same experience as the previous reviewers. The thing died just out of warranty, and in the most peculiar fashion, I would never have expected: along the underside of the spout, where I suppose a poorly made welding seam must have corroded. I'm not even primarily angry about the money, but the mess and time it takes to install a new tap. So yes, even though we rent, I went for a decent tap this time, which comes with a 10 year warranty.
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.
