Hi RichCF, I think that's entirely possible and hopefully will be revealed when I take it apart tomorrow. I'd like to prevent it happening again, if that's possible?
I have had a quick look, but couldn't get the top of the tap off :oops: (I had removed the screw!).
The cold tap on a bath/shower mixer only turns a little, and no cold will come out of it. I'm assuming it's the internal mechanism bit that's gone wrong, and that I'll need to remove and replace (please correct me if I'm wrong).
This is however the second time this has happened, and so I'm...
Thanks, make sense.
It seems to be difficult to find traps with overflows. Any reason why I shouldn't connect the overflow on my bath to a (washing machine/dishwasher) hose connection on a trap, for example. Would need to make sure the overflow hose is the right size to connect of course.
Ah wow, thanks. :oops: I should have gone with more brute force, but in this case my ignorance (or assumptions) got in the way!!
Is that sort of push fit stuff going to cause problems in the long run, i.e. should I replace that whole run while I'm in there? Thanks again!!
Thanks[/url] for the reply. It doesn't look (to my untrained eye) like the one you linked. The piece I'm trying to replace does have a flexi-pipe on it that connects to bath overflow.
Here's the bath and waste pipe ends (what a mess I found under the bath!):
The trap end with the large nut...
I need to replace the trap on my bath. The end that goes on the bath has a standard size nut on it. (Is "nut" the right term in this case?).
The other end, which attaches to the threaded end of existing waste pipe, has a much bigger nut on it. It's this end that I'm struggling to find...
