Hi, I have bought some second hand bath tap. They have a cross at the bottom which I havn't seen on other taps. Whats it for? Do I need a special fitting?

My bath currently has 35mm holes for taps.The cross is 40mm wide. 3/4" taps.

It is used for centring the tap in the hole. You can get around the problem by using an angle grinder to nip off the corners. You will need to mark it up carefully and cut with a thin metal cutting disc. If your bath is plastic then you might be able to enlarge the holes but this can lead to a disaster. Alternately go to Toolstation or Screwfix and buy some cheap new taps that you can pull out and chuck away if they start leaking by. :thumbright:
