    We have a mixer tap combo thing on the kitchen sink.The outlet part can move and we can open the taps over either side of the sink. There is water gathering at the bottom of the mixer unit where it is fixed to the sink.If I put my hand underneath there is no water.Where is it coming from and how can I fix it.Thanks a bunch JPK

    were the spout swivels. theres usualy a tiny screw at the back, undo this then pop the spout out you will find rubber o rings that may need replacing. if the water only appears when the taps are turned on this is more likely your problem.

    Thanks, I see the screw and will take a look. It IS worse when the taps are used so I am on the right road with your advice, thank you very much.JPK
