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.

Questions & Answers
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.
Hi there! Installed the tap everything was great about 6 months ago. Now there is barely any water coming out. Checked the little filter thing looks fine. Can you pls assist me?
Hi Ariadne on the end of the tap there is a filter/ water flow restrictor this sometimes becomes blocked with debris from the pipes .to clean out the filter unscrew the very end of the tap using a shifting spanner inspect the filter and remove any bits of stuff lodged in it .the coloured plastic water restrictor can be removed to prevent it blocking again but will increase water usage slightly run the tap on full for a bit to clean the pipes out then refit the filter/ end of the tap and your done
