Pandemic Update Owing to the ongoing Pandemic and the knock-on issues to the supply of some products, and we have temporarily had to replace the Compression Tee and Flexi with quality alternatives, that provide the same function but do not match the pictures.
Outside Tap Kit DIY Professional 450mm through the wall Flange [GT1a]
Professional THRU-WALL Garden OUTSIDE TAP KIT Complies with Water Regulations
Be sure to sure this flange is long enough to go through the wall and past the kitchen cabinets, otherwise buy a longer 450mm flange
THIS KIT COMES COMPLETE WITH :-
1 X HOSE UNION OUTSIDE TAP with Double Check Valve
1 X 15mm COMPRESSION TEE with EASY TURN ISOLATING VALVE
1 X 15mm THRU-WALL FLANGE 450mm Long
3 X 2"; X 8 BRASS COUNTERSUNK SLOTTED FIXING SCREWS

We have found this kit allow the average DIY person to fit a outside tap and is superior to many of the kits sold in DIY stores, eBay or Amazon which have self tapping tee's which often in 18months tend to leak.
These kits give a professional feel, the through the wall flange has several advantages over the wall plate type fixing, There is no exposed pipe work to freeze in winter and the PTFE tape and tap can be tightened onto the flange before fitting, making sure it's a good fit and vertical.
The kit can be used on modern 15mm or old 1/2 inch copper. The isolation valve should be fitted above the lever of the outside tap to ensure that during the winter months the garden tap can be turned off and outside tap opened. This will prevent the outside tap freezing.
Please note certain plastic items colours may vary.
