ceramic sinks and hard to remove taps?
Discuss ceramic sinks and hard to remove taps? in the Plumbing Forum at Plumbers Forums; any tips? its not a monobloc and it is quite ancient so i have no doubt it will be a bugger to loosen the nut to remove the tap.
any tips? its not a monobloc and it is quite ancient so i have no doubt it will be a bugger to loosen the nut to remove the tap.
ive always had trouble with old taps on ceramic sinks so does anyone have any tips for safe trouble free removal?

having sliced myself up in the past when the sink shatters,I dont try too hard when the nut is siezed, I just advise the customer to replace the sink/basin as a load of stiches in your arms isnt worth it.
thanks guys, i will take a look and see whats what, ive got one of those spanners that are forked but might give the socket type a go.
i will just tell the lady there is a chance her nice sink might end up in small pieces if it looks like it will be a bugger.
knowing my luck it will probably be a mint royal daulton antique sink with a crusty old tap firmly welded in place.
