- Turn off the main water supply.
- Using an adjustable spanner, remove the tap cover, placing a cloth between tap and tool to prevent scratching.
- Use an open-ended spanner to unscrew the gland nut, and expose and remove the old washer.
- Use a reseating tool to shave the tap seat back to a flat, shiny surface.
- Replace the O-ring on the spindle and apply grease.
- Flush away filing debris and insert spindle with the new tap washer.
- Reassemble the tap (taking care not to overtighten the gland nut) and turn the main water supply back on.
