i hve a mixer tp tap that was dripping even when tightened to the full. i decided i would change the heads as it wasnt much more expensive than just replcing the washer.
anyway, ive now hit a problem, the tap head replacements fit fine but when i close the tap up it seems to still go past the stop point. this then makes the bit inside the head (plunger type thing with rubber washer fixed to it) come loose and falls out of the channel which then stop me turning the tap. only way to fix this is to remove the tap head replcement kit and screw it back in manually.
when looking at it, its almost like the plunger is being 'allowed' to drop too low and that results in it coming out of the channel and then getting stuck
cn someone tell me why this is, ive even tried a different set of heads and they do the same!!! should i have bought different size or something as i thought all tap heads were kin of unoversal apart from the ceramic quarter turn ones
