No water from 1 tap

Postby dkirk » Tue May 22, 2007 2:52 pm

We have no water coming through our hot water tap in the bathroom. We get water from every other tap in the house, both hot and cold, so I am pretty sure that the problem is with the workings inside the tap.

Anyone have any ideas as to what part of the tap could be stuck and preventing water from getting through, and how I can repair/replace this? The top of the tap is twisting freely but I guess it is not opening the valve.

Simply Build It

Probably just the tap washer stuck to the seating.

All you need is a new washer.
