Tips and Advice Needed on How to Replace a Bathroom Mixer Tap

Postby KennyG » Wed Oct 21, 2015 1:59 pm

Need to replace a mixer bathroom tap but looking at a couple of Youtube videos on the subject it looks far more complicated than replacing a single hot or cold tap. Is this something which could be done by a novice or should I bite the bullet and pay for a plumber? Annoyingly, most of the existing tap seems OK but the horizontal lever which turns the water on & off won't stay in properly when it's screwed in, something wrong with the thread I think. Any help appreciated!
