I assume you're getting water at the cold tap.....
Are you good at plumbing? If so, you can try a few things.....
Look under the sink to see if the shutoff valve there is turned on.....If still no water go to the water heater and check to see if the valve there is on....check to see if there's water in the heater...
If all is on, then there is a clog. If you have galvanized pipes and over 30 yrs. old that might be the problem....If your pipes are copper then a valve is probably bad,....
there is abacking nut & plate securing tap to sink, most are 1/2 inch use long socket to make it easier, also you must disconnect pullout hose from tap (connection also under sink) & remove hose weight located usally at the bottom of pull out hose. Make sure you isolate all water first!
It appears that the seal at the base of the tap is worn or the screw collar is loose - try hand-tightening it. It may cure your problem. Plumbers tape is a white tape that helps seal water pipe joints!
buught sink taps same problem do they have flexy conectors with them. my problem was as they are american hot @ cold water suply are maines fed so hole in bottom of taps [or in flexy pipes are too small
Is cheaper to replace the whole tap as the service kits cost almost as much as the tap to buy, I presume you are talking about a flick mixer tap (that is what they are called in australia)
Replacing them is reasonably easy, turn off water at the main out on the footpath turn the tap on to let the water run out, go under the sink with a couple of spanners or deep reach socket and undo the lines and the tap hold down nuts and remove, replace in reverse order
The ballvalve is normally a compression type fitting and so would not normally require soldering, however you could use a threaded adaptor soldered to the copper supply line and then thread a 1/2" ball valve to that then reduce down to the correct thread to meet the tails from your new tap. Or alternativeley you can insert the valve in the supply line, and extend the pipe to nearer the sink to enable easier connection of the tap.
You want to know if there any way to tighten a faucet on a kitchen sink?
Yes! All faucets have to be secure, but there are as many diferent methods as there are diferent manufacturers. If you are unfamiliar with the diferent methods then you might not recognize the screw, nut, bolt or fitting when you look at it. Also, for many, a special tool is required. It might be wise to have someone local look at it.
