Fix the loose tap like a Pro Handyman
Fixing a loose tap is a simple task, however, it takes a bit of time and attention to do a proper job.
For this task you will need a few tools :
-Tap Back Nut Box Spanner – 27mm & 32mm
– 2 x Adjustable Spanner Wrench
– Flat screwdriver
Before we start, we need to locate the water main or we can use the valves for hat and cold under the sink.
Usually, there’s a valve before the flex pipe to isolate the tap from the rest of the circuit.
Put a towel under as there will be water left in the system
Slowly undo the flex pipes nuts. Do it slowly just in case you forgot about turning the water off.
Use 2 spanners one holding the copper pipe female connector firm in place and the other one undo the flex male.
Step 3: Use the Tap Back Nut Box Spanner – 27mm & 32mm to tighten back the tap nut making sure you hold the tap in the same time.
Step: 4 Connect the flex pipe back making sure all the washers are in place.
Slowly turn the mains on making sure there’s no leak.
Job Done !!!
