Hi all, can anybody help, we have a Kanus Sun 650 TI MF and the Bathroom Basin Tap, which we believe is original is far to long (see picture), It all works fine, but is very powerful, does anybody know if a shorter version is available or can we shorten it. It's made of plastic (chrome[ATTACH][/ATTACH] finished) so could possibly be cut and re-sealed, but not sure if the nozzle has a rubber pipe inside or it's hollow. Currently it's so powerful that it splashes over the basin, even when we have it on the lowest setting. Does anybody know if its possible to replace the filter at the end of the nozzle perhaps with a thicker one to slow the flow down.
I suspect the easiest option would be to replace the whole tap but if the bathroom tap ALONE show high pressure that would suggest replacing might be best. The only alternative would be to partially close the pipes feeding it.
If other taps show the same high pressure it could suggest that the wrong pump has been fitted as they are sold at different ratings.
CAK Tanks are the best option for a wide range of taps;
Location: Normandy. Just up the D903 from the roundabout with the D15

I'm sure you can restrict the filter on the spout one way or another. If the round spout has a couple of 'flats' on it just use an adjustable spanner to unwind it off. But take care you don't disturb the tap base.
The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life“s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA. http://raynipper.com

First thing is to look below the tap to see if it is the micro switched type or the normal domestic, if it has wires then it has to be the same type or change the pump to the pressure type, but first (I'll assume you have not done this) might be to rotate it so the water hits the side of the basin so it runs down the side rather than hitting the bottom and cannot splash so much, easy and cheapest option.
From your picture, it actually looks more like a standard domestic kitchen tap to me, in which case it will be too long in the spout, but cutting it isn't an option, B&Q etc will sell a standard basin mixer tap which if not the wired type will do the job fine, fittings on a fairly recent van (last 15years) should be similar if not the same, might be worth taking the existing one to get the new one from a decent plumbers suppliers to match the new one up, From about £20 up.
Thanks Penquin; Although the van is quite old, it's only done 35,000 km, so we believe it should be the original pump, thanks for your comments, we'll let you know how we get on. Cheers Keith and Jenny
Thanks for the memo, yes it's a Micro type as we have two wires under the tap. We'll have a look to see if it has a filter at the end as Ray suggested to see if we can restrict it. At the end of the day it's not a major issue, but because of the force of the water you end up washing your clothes as well as your face
