Plumber won’t come to fix tap - need to do it myself!

Post by Vanderlust » Sat Jan 20, 2024 3:20 pm

Plumber says the tap just needs tightened and it’s not worth his while to come out for it. Appreciate that but I think a part is missing that would be used to tighten the underside.

Any ideas? Is the part from underneath standard or don’t need to work out what the gap model etc is? Place is rental no clue about anything here and just going to fix myself as the landlord isn’t very responsive 🫣

Hi vanderlust,
You will need a short length is studding to fit in the tap base, it may be 6 or 8mm, a nut to fit (preferably a long brass one) and a C washer plate. Fit the studding in the tap and ask an assistant to hold the tap in place while you fit the rest.
Regards S
