    I inherited with my new house a lovely three piece Barber Wilson kitchen tap in polished brass finish, no longer so polished but looks great. I replaced the cylinder due to dripping cold tap.
    I now have a new more worrying leak from the base of the riser swan neck. Water is seeping out from where the swan neck fits into the base. My question is do I need to replace the whole swan neck or is there a service part washer etc I can replace ?

    Is it where it swivels from ?
    We love Barber Wilson proper English taps, almost certainly it can be repairs, most likely it is just a new 'O' seal required.

    Yes it is coming out the base around the neck of the pipe where it swivels.

    I have know idea how to remove it and strip it down. The brass is easily damaged so hesitant to start trying without knowing how to remove it to check parts.

    New O ring required. Not sure how the spout is held in, most likely a small grub screw, speak to Barwil tomorrow & they should be able tell you & what size O ring you will need.
