Persimmon Homes

Tap flow rates, restrictors and tap aerators

When moving into your new Persimmon Home it's important to keep your baths, sinks and taps in tip top shape and working properly. This guide looks at the various taps in and around your home, and how to look after them.


The water to all your sinks, baths and showers is supplied under pressure from the mains water supply. The flow of your water is controlled by several pieces of equipment. All our taps are fitted with restrictors and aerators to provide a constant flow of water irrespective of demand or flow of pressure.

There are two settings on most of your sink taps – medium and high. At the end of each tap is an aerator. These can be unscrewed to remove any grit or dirt. The aerator also controls water flow and prevents splashback. We fit showers with a similar flow restrictor as well as an adjustable water temperature control. You can set the flow and water temperature to your perfect setting.

Warranty peace of mind

Feel secure in the knowledge that our homes come with a two-year Persimmon Homes warranty and in years three to 10 you’re covered by an NHBC/LABC warranty. Warranties on appliances can be set up straight away and registered directly with the manufacturer. Remember to service your boiler before the end of the first 12 months to maintain the second year of your warranty.

Our sales team is on hand via email or phone to help you, and our customer care team is available to offer support during and after your settling-in period.

Our Pledge to you

From the moment you reserve your new Persimmon home, we do our best to make the experience enjoyable and informative every step of the way; not just while you're buying, but after you've moved in too. Read our pre-move and after-sales pledge to find out more.
