Does this sink look a little small? Of course it does. You really couldn’t actually get full sized adult hands into it. Then it gets worse. Much much worse. You see the twisty water control? Well to get hot water you have to turn the stupid thing ALL THE WAY AROUND. This means that the water comes out with immense pressure, lands inside the stupidly small sink and then ricochets right on to YOU! It of course lands mostly in the area around your crotch as this is the low level they have put the sink at. You now leave the toilet cubicle and return to an open-plan office looking like you just wet yourself. Then they start talking about you….

I actually banned my builders from installing these idiotic sinks and taps when I used to oversee the building of retail shops. They couldn’t understand why. I can’t understand why they are still manufactured. They waste water and create a cleaning and slip hazard.

Just another example of BAD BRITISH PLUMBING

My suggestion? Just wash your hands in the cold water.
