    I did think this actually. But I've opened them more and also the pressure in the sink upstairs is good.

    pressure and flow are two different things i'm afraid. ignore the pressure at the tap and look for a blockage

    Kinked hose.............. not keen on them sort of taps, sorry bud.

    Fitted quite a few for Ikea customers. The long hoses can be a pita.

    The hose on the tap? It’s not that long and it’s protected by a ‘cage’

    Not sure if it is the same but the hoses usually (afaik) hang underneath the sink, with a weight on them to aid retraction.
    But there is very often some plumbing work in the way. Certainly a pita to fit them sometimes and get them retracting properly. :)

    Na it’s not one of those ones (I don’t think) mate. I agree they are a pain in the neck. It’s fixed so u can’t pull it out any further than it is but u can obviously move it about.
    Like this one in the photo, the hose is only what u can see in the photo, it doesn’t go beneath the sink and can’t be pulled out. The tap swivels like a normal monobloc spout would.

    Gotcha bud. I looked again at the Op's pictures. Yes, if it doesn't retract at all then you are correct....

    I don't like that one either..... Shhhhh. (sorry Op) but just personal choice obviously.
