An elderly friend who is registered blind has a problem with a bath / shower mixer where the pull up / push down collar that diverts the water from taps to shower has stuck. He says it is "a while" since he used it and I cannot move the collar up or down, I even disconnected the hose connection and the outlet holes seem clear of any scale. I`d guess the tap assembly is umpteen years old but he would prefer it be repaired rather than replaced.... . Any suggestions? Thanks in anticipation. EyeTry
Thanks, soaking the removed assembly in Viakal or similar was a good suggestion. We didn`t know how long he would be without running water whilst whoever did the job. I guess it is back to him to decide if he wants to fork out for a new assembly (Screwfix have some around Â£40 to Â£50) or stay with using just the bath...) Thank you both for your input, Regards, EyeTry
