    Hello All,

    I have an unbranded tap in the kitchen which is getting tighter and tighter to turn. I think the cartridge is identical to the grey Brev ones although it isn't marked as such. Like these:

    I've taken it apart and cleaned it a couple of times and used some light grease on what I think are the relevant bits, but it doesn't seem to last long.
    Does anyone with experience know whether there is anything obvious I can do or shall I buy a new cartridge? There doesn't appear to be anything missing, broken or excessively worn.

    Any advice greatly appreciated.

    Thanks very much,

    Paul.

    btw. I've looked on here for a few years now but always found good answers by searching. I thought I'd finally join up. Cheers all.
