    I'd like to fit square tap in our bathroom and brighten up a tired look, however the sink has round hole, will I need to cut a hole in the sink to make the new square tap fit properly or would the square tap just sit on top of the round hole and the internal gubbings fit down the round hole fine?

    This is the tap I'm looking at:

    Thanks!

    Most square tap do fit in, or rather over, a round hole.
    Most of the different styles (round, square, etc. etc.) have identical innards, it's just the shape of the outer shell that varies.

    Make sure the tap is suitable for the type of hot water system you have. I see that one is rated as low pressure, typical of conventional gravity hot water systems, so the 'tails' may be larger bore (and require a bigger hole) than one designed for higher pressures.

    I think the OP should book the spammer in especially if they are in Scotland as their username implies. £60 sounds reasonable :evil:
