Lidl high pressure taps


Saw these in store last week, but passed by as were only for high pressure systems {as is common in most of Europe}; presumably without storage tank in loft as I have. If installed in such a system what makes taps unsuitable, as surely water would flow through??

I haven't seen them and there shouldn't be any safety problems like there would be the other way round, ie fitting low pressure taps to a high pressure system.
Water would indeed flow through, the only problem I can foresee is if they are very small bore, it may flow through very slowly without mains pressure behind it.
Dos the inlet look like a normal 15mm/1/2"BSP job?

I'll be intersted in the response too - having bought some taps like these and may have to send them back. Any way to use them on an unpressurised system?

babbled like a waterfall and said:

Water does flow from them on low pressure but it's a bit of a piddle and there is the constant danger of backing the water up into the roof tank if they are monoblock ones. I have basin and bath on these, and they work well but we have to be very careful before the combi arrives and all goes mains pressure.
