    Does anyone know how I can get at the O rings on this mixer tap? It leaks only when being used so it's not the cartridge itself.


    Or do I suggest a new tap to this customer?

    Hi
    I hate the throwaway society but I find with these taps its best to replace them. The exception for me is if its an expensive tap where specific parts can be obtained from the manufacturers. Even so a replacement can work out cheaper

    If you know the manufacturer, try them for parts. Sometimes you can find the right size o rings, but occasionally, you think you have the right ones, but it still leaks.

    If it's only a cheap tap, I would replace it with something better that spares will be available for, eg Bristan or Grohe.
