Has anyone else noticed that the flexible tap connectors supplied with taps from both B&Q and our sponsors are no longer quite as flexible as they used to be? For several months, I've had fun and games with them if I've tried to do anything other than fit them on a smooth curve or straight. They seem to go so far, and then kink, whereas they used to allow some quite innovative (ahem...) curvature when necessary. I appreciate that this shouldn't be a problem with sensible installation, but sometimes it turns a straightforward tap swap into something involving a lot more pipework than the customer expects. Is it just me, or have others had the same difficulties with them?
