Replacing tap washers

Replacing tap washers

To re-washer a tap, you will have to turn off the water first (see above). Once you have turned the water off, open the tap and let the remaining water drain out.

1. Using a screwdriver, remove the handle of the tap.
2. Using a spanner, open the tap body.
3. Renew the washer or turn it around.
4. Then tighten the two parts of the tap body again and refit the handle.
