XXXXX XXXXX :

Are these 1/4 turn taps?

JACUSTOMER-l7zn3myj- :

The taps are the lever kind either side of the swan spout.

JACUSTOMER-l7zn3myj- :

I have just noticed in the instructions they refer to the Ceramic disc mechanism

XXXXX XXXXX :

Ok, 1/4 turn then.

XXXXX XXXXX :

You will need to order these direct from the manufacturer - have you spoken to them on the Customer Services number on the paperwork?

JACUSTOMER-l7zn3myj- :

I hav'nt as yet but will asap. Do you think I would be able fit it. Perhaps not.

XXXXX XXXXX :

As long as you can isolate the water, then remove the tap heads - you just need an adjustable spanner to remove the workings from the tap - a 10 minute job

JACUSTOMER-l7zn3myj- :

Okay, will have an attempt
