    Hi, Recently moved into a new house (new to me). Flow to hot tap (monoblock mixer) in our en-suite is poor. Gravity fed and tank prob only a couple of metres above in loft.

    Also connected with flexis. I've read around and note the possible problems - wrong type of tap, flexis/isolator reducing flow/etc).

    However I removed the spout "aerator thing", removed a bit of crud but noticed when off the flow would be reasonable (not brilliant but I could live with it).

    Does anyone know if I can buy anything to screw on to replace the chrome aerator end? Tap looks a bit odd without anything. Ideally would just be a spout rather than the metal "gauze" type insert thing.

    All help appreciated.

    Why can't you remove the gauze from the spout and refit.
