Can anyone suggest source of parts for out of production taps to save me replacing 30 year old bath mixer? One handleâ€™s broken but tap is otherwise OK and replacing it would involve dismantling then reconstructing and retiling side of built-in bath (tiles also 30 years old). Lunnâ€™s website shows handle described as â€˜UNK Chrome Mk 4â€™. I assume UNK is manufacturer whoâ€™s no longer in business.
Anyone know of a used or â€˜remainderedâ€™ plumbing parts scrapyard somewhere with a mail order service? Alternative suggestions gratefully received. I'd provide a picture but don't know how so advice on this, suitable for the not quite computer literate, would be welcome too!
Sincere thanks for your replies. I had a look at kits but am unsure they'd fit - the tap appears to have unusually large headgear for which I managed to get a large enough replacement washer only after trying B&Q, Homebase and three plumbers suppliers (last one had one which they gave me free of charge).
I've repaired the handle with a drilled and shaped brass block epoxied inside the 'shroud' type handle (now you know why I sign myself 'Bungler'!). If it doesn't work out I'll try the kit solution.
