    Default Grohe Taps from Europe - Will they fit in UK/Ireland?

    Thinking of buying some Grohe taps online from Germany, as they are crazy prices here in Rep of Ireland.

    I wonder if they will have the same fittings as the British/Irish standard?

    Also, I am looking at Grohe taps that are specifically marketed as "low pressure". Our house does not have any pumps (Other than one pump for a mixer shower, which we are having our plumber install).
    I assume that the "low Pressure" taps might be best?#

    Thanks!

    The Grohe taps you buy in the UK have the German fittings on them, so you'll need a 3/8 - 1/2' adapter wherever you buy them from.
    If your hot water system is open vented then you'll need a dual flow mixer.

    Thanks guys. Just on a similar topic. I am also getting a mixer shower from Germany - I will ask my plumber to install a pump in the hot water press. Any concerns on buying a thermostatic mixer shower from Germany? Thanks again.
