Outside tap

Postby alwaysready » Fri Nov 27, 2020 9:56 pm

I would really appreciate an advice. The kitchen company had recently installed me an outside tap. Within a couple of weeks the handle screw went rusty. What is the best to do about this?

Hi alwaysready
Put some grease on the screw or take the screw out and find a brass replacement.

What may happen if I just leave the rusty screw as it is?

Hi alwaysready
Nothing untoward will happen if you leave the screw as is.
