I've fitted a monoblock tap which now leaks from the swivel joints when I turn the tap. The tap is connected by one long brass nut underneath. Is it simply a matter of getting this nut as tight as I can or do washers need changing. If I need to get inside the tap body, how do I do it, it looks like I need a small allan key just under the handle?

It is the same tap as this one on ebay.

from the swivel joints
You mean at the base of the swivelly spout?
Not connected with bolt underneath . If new, send it back.
sorry for not being clearer. It leaks from the join between the swivelling spout section and the upper tap body. Its not a new tap, I've transferred it from another sink. Any advice would be great.

You need a new O-ring between the spout and the base.

Either a grub screw behind the tap or turn spo9ut 90 degrees and yank. Carefully.

Thats just a typo away from being rude :confused:

why do these questions come in twos and threes? And why don't people look at the "Similar Topics" at the bottom...?
