I have Deltaflow 3 hole taps (25 yrs old) in my bathroom and the hot tap on
my basin cannot be fixed - the bit that the washer goes on is cracked. I
have done a lot of searching on the net and cannot find any replacment
parts. Can anyone help me as to where I can find these please?
Thanks very much.
You may be able to get a result with the existing tap by finding a tap seat
recutting tool. Of course if it's a major crack this may not work, and I
don't know how easy it is to find that tool nowadays.
Years ago when I had no money I epoxied a brass washer onto a badly
damaged seat (make sure it is dry), I put a polythene disc onto the top
of the brass washer, then used the tap washer to gently push it level.
After it had set off a bit, removed the tap washer - don't want to glue
the tap down. Next morning used a cutter (gently) to make the brass
washer nice and parallel to the tap washer - but probably it did not
need this. You need to use an adhesive suitable for mending cups and
the like. But probably nobody drinks from the hot tap. Worked for me,
but not too much epoxy is the secret.
