always had a problem with hot taps in bathroom.

Firmly tightened up each tap plus rubber washer above....plastic nut underneath. if you run cold water through them , the taps remain in position perfectly just like the cold taps..

when hot water runs thru the taps for a long time .. when turning off the taps they start to swivel....

plumber comes and tightens the backnuts ......... some time later we are back with a swivel

You can get special backnuts, or loosen it off, clean well and fill ole with sanitary silicone, and do up.
