I thought I'd do a quick video on how to replace a cartridge in a lever tap after changing one last week in a property that I rent out, I did not get chance to film that as it was over the bath so I thought I'd film how to do it in the downstairs loo here.

I removed the grub screw and started to pull on the lever whist holding the tap, but the tap came loose as the horse shoe washer had rusted so much that is was just a blob of rust. So now the tap is loose and dripping slightly.

Next plant of attack is a new tap so I removed the boxing in from under the sink and found this abortion-

Just pretend you are in Greece/Spain - you'll get an influx of people complimenting it!!!

Check the logs - it'll be referenced by plumbers all over Europe claiming it as their own work!

:lol:
