Postby Nineinchnick » Sun Aug 01, 2021 4:55 pm

Hi. Need to change tap washer and check seat. I know what to do here, however, I cannot budge the valve in the tap, seems to be stuck solid. Dies anyone have any tips please, I can only think of good old WD40, but dont want to try it in case it makes things worse. Thanks in advance. Nick

Hi nineinchnick
Fit a ring spanner on the tap head and lever between the spout and ring spanner with a wide blade screwdriver.
