Question about Home
The sealing rubber/washer in the tap has perished and water is leaking past it and up the pipe.
Turn off the water supply to the house. Turn the thermo control to its coldest setting. Open the tap to ensure water is no longer coming from the rose. Give it a minute or so. There may be residual water from the pipes higher than your mixer.
Above the thermostatic mixer is the tap that controls water flow. You need to undo the nut that holds its control arm(the arm that you turn to open the water flow) in place. Pull the arm off. Behind it is another nut which needs to be removed. Use a wash cloth over any tools that you use on this or you'll damage the finish.
Next is the actual tap that controls the actual volume of water through the system. Remove this as well. (part no 9.13501) Get it to your local hardware and ask if they have replacement washers for this unit or just buy a replacement unit.
