SOURCE: mixer tap on the kitchen sink

Hi gt_elijah.

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

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.
Feel free contact me again!

How to unistall franke mythos mtx taps


Turn off the water supply from the heater and at the main water supply line outside. place a container under the sink where the flick mixer is mounted to catch the water that will come out of the lines when you undo the fittings.
there should be 2 flexible braided lines coming from the mixer to the water supply lines, undo both fittings from those lines, then undo the brass nut that fastens the mixer to the sink, you may need a 10 or 12mm socket with an extension bar to get up under the sink to be able to undo the nut.
there should be a metal horseshoe shaped retaining plate that holds the mixer to the sink which should come off when the nut is undone.
You may or may not have to remove the flexible lines from the mixer which you should be able to sort out when you get to that point.
I hope this info helps you with your problem, the info may not be exactly how I have explained but that is how most mixers are fitted or removed.

Leaking sink tap base


If I understand this correctly, you will need to remove the tap handle, the surround which sits against the sink, then the tap body, then unscrew the spindle till it comes free, and replace the o-ring on the spindle.

If the leak is under the sink, or if it is a mixer tap, please clarify that.

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.
