Dripping tap

One of the main causes of a ceramic disc valve/cartridge tap dripping, is that the pipe work has not been flushed of debris upon installation. If pipework is disturbed it loosens debris within the pipe and this then travels to the ceramic disc valve/cartridge causing a blockage which prevents the ceramic disc valve/cartridge closing fully, allowing water to pass which causes the dripping.

Please remove the head work and valve and check the ceramic discs for any signs of scouring. If scouring or damage is evident, replace the ceramic disc valve/cartridge. If there is no evidence of damage swill the ceramic disc valve/cartridge vigorously in hot soapy water to clean it and remove any debris. If the tap continues to drip after cleaning the ceramic disc valve/cartridge, you will need to replace the ceramic disc valve/cartridge.
