Removing Non-Heagonal Water Tap Valve?

Postby fcoelho » Sat Jan 19, 2019 6:45 pm

Hi all

I'm trying to replace a water tap valve but the nut is not hexagonal, it's half round and half flat (see photo attached).


Any ideas how I can remove it? I've tried with an hexagonal wrench set but it doesn't work. Also I can't fit an adjustable srrench because the cover does not come off.

Suggestions are very welcomed!
