I wonder if the person who thought up the Reginox tap (12 September, page 60) has ever washed up or filled a kettle.
Taps with the spout above the control lever or knobs are impractical to use and can result in a wet or scalded hand. One should not have to reach under the tap spout in order to achieve a flow of water. Taps made in this way are bad taps. When will these "designers" ever learn?
