Usually happens when the stops and not ballanced(hot and cold pressures going to the faucet). Try ajusting the stops; open more on the hot or close more on the cold.

Oliveri mixer taps


turn off the hot and cold water supply, place a container under the sink where the hose meets the Sink mixer.
release the pressure from the tap by opening the tap to let the water out.
use a suitable tool to undo the flexible hose from the underside of the tap, there should be a small "O" ring on it which you will have to replace as the "O" ring is possibly the cause of the leak.

On the back of the mixer tap on my astracast sink has a small hole that seems to be part of th mixer tap is leaking when the cold water is on and not the hot, can you help?


I sounds like the cold side of the faucet has a bad side. Contact them for free parts for that side and directions on how to install. It could be just those rubber seals but my be the actuator for the cold water.

Possibly switch off hot and cold water then undo cold water flange closest to the outlet and see if water comes out.if it does, tap assembly is faulty. If not, go back to where next available connection to the pipe was made. Work back untill you find the problem.

Cold water tap not working, house heating not as strong.


Okay let's trouble shoot this problem. The Hot water issue may just be that your Temp. control is not set as high as it was before it was replaced. Find the control on the water heater and check the setting. You can adjust it hotter from there, but it is not recomended to set it all the way to HOT. Just increase it at small adjustments and see if the water gets hotter. The Cold Water Tap issue.....Turn off the Cold and Hot water supply lines to the faucet. Remove the Cold water tap. VERY SLOWLY TURN ON THE COLD WATER SUPPLY and see if you get water coming out of the line. If you get water, then your line is okay. Inspect the valve to see if there is any debris in or on it. Clean and reinstall both taps and turn back on the water. It should work. Now if you turn the water on SLOWLY when the Cold water tap is removed, and no water comes out, Then you know you have an issue with the line going to the cold water side. (Frozen Line, Debris in supply line valve, Broken or Leaking Water Line) I hope this assists you........Joe
