How to replace tap cartridge for quarter turn taps

Modern taps are not the same as older ones so fixing a drip is not always a case of simply changing the washer. This is the case if you have a tap which turns from full off to full on with a quarter twist of the handle.

Plumbers' merchants don't stock all available cartridges, so we often have to order them directly from the manufacturer, which can take several days.

If you have the paperwork for your taps, or email us a digital photo, then we can do the research before we arrive and often save a second visit.

Please phone us for any queries or help on anything 24 hours a day on 0208 964 6714.
