I have just removed the old wall mount taps from my kitchen, and tried to install the new 1/4 turn taps. But when I turn my water back on the taps will not turn off. both hot and cold water continuously runs. Is there something I need to do to convert from the standard washer tap to the 1/4 turn tap system?
I can only assume that the bottom of the tap is not seating itself down into the socket far enough, are the 1/4 turn taps adjustable in length?
Thanks for your help, I have uploaded a couple of pictures.
I would not rule out the possibility of the taps being faulty. Just because they are new doesn’t mean that they are now defective. I bought some 15mm 1/2″ swivel straights the other day that would not connect to the toilet inlet valve. Turned out the swivels straights weren’t pressed out correctly!paulplumb2013-02-15 10:08:57
Dripping or leaking is one of the most common issues that people have with their faucets especially in the kitchen. Leaking faucet can cost you a huge amount of money in the form of wasted water. Many leaking taps are easy enough to fix with a wrench. What you need to do is simply tighten the nozzle located at the end of the faucet. Maybe it can help you.
