Re: Very Basic - Sealing a tap - ceramic sink



I'm not calling anyone silly who has a seal and a bison in their bathroom !
I usually just put mastic under the tap, tighten up underneath (plastic washer underneath) and then wipe all the visible mastic from the join.

I noticed that earlier too, and thought better of making a remark.
However in the light of recent film announcements I would advise the OP that be careful of the bison, because he's got a built-in modus operandi known as "you won't like me when I'm angry".
My wife and I went to the animal park south of Winchester a few years ago. They had a couple of bison there - behind a very substantial wooden fence. I thought I'd like to take a photograph of the bison, so I shunted myself up the fence a little.
The bison clearly wasn't happy about that situation and charged the fence. And when I say charged it didn't put the brakes on as it got close to the fence - it just kept going and gave the fence the sort of head butt where you think the bisons head is going to appear out the back of its arse as it meets the immovable object. Shook the whole damn fence something chronic.
I didn't get my photo and we left the area rapidly. I didn't like the bison when it got angry.

I recently replaced a pair of bathroom taps where putty had previously been used for this. The new taps came with nice white rubber washers that look much better and aren't nearly so messy. If I recall, the shop had bags of the washers on their own for about 50p.
