Old Style Bath Tap Dripping - How to renew seal?

Postby Stevewilko » Wed Nov 25, 2020 10:31 am


I'm looking for some advice on how to split down this old (bottom exit) bath tap as it is dripping and I need to renew the seal.

I have attached an image - does anybody know if the arrow is pointing to the point where the tap splits?

Thanks in advance.

Simply Build It

Hi stevewilko
The top part of the chrome body will probably unscrew off the main body but you will need to remove the thumb wheel to get it off completely.
