Hi all, i wonder if anyone can offer any advice. I have a mixer tap in my bathroom for the sink (one spout, control for hot on the right and cold on the left) but for some reason whenever i turn the tap on, regardless of hot or cold, almost no water comes out, a very small stream of water is all that comes out.
A few people at my work have suggested washers within the tap but im not sure any advice?
Presumably the rest of the taps in the house are OK. Re. the problem one, it seems unlikely that both the hot and cold side tap washers would fail at the same time. If the tap has a small screw-in strainer at the outlet from the spout, remove this then try the tap. If flow is then OK, clean the strainer and replace it.
Are the taps the ones that are quarter turn or full turn? If full turn, it could be the washer or that it may need re-seating. If it is quarter turn (ceramic discs) then you may need to replace the tap, unless you can spare cartridges that match your taps.
