Question about Blanco Plumbing

1 Answer

I have a Blanco BM5300 "Eye" tap and need to change the cold ceramic washer. I have got a replacement washer but can't see how to remove the tap handle from the old washer which presumably fits over the end spline of the washer. Does it just pull off - as I can't see any fixing screw?

There are several other methods.
Pop out a screw-cover cap on the end of the top of the handle.
Unscrew the base of the handle.
Unscrew the lever off the handle.
Pop out a small setscrew cover plug on the side of the handle under the lever. Hope this helps.

Blanco Eye Kitchen tap cold water is leaking from tap[ WHEN TURNED OFF. I have remove the allen screw that secures the the cold lever but I cannot remove the leaver

Hello doy.. get a can of WD-40 penetrating lubricant and spray it on the seam connecting the lever and the body. It will penetrate within an hour or so. Repeat if necessary.

Also use a plastic head or a rubber head hammer to tap it up.


Thanks for choosing Fixya!

How do I replace a cruciform tap washer

There is no washer in that tap it is a ceramic insert which you will have to order from manufacturer or elsewhere.
Turn off the water supply, unscrew tap actuator (knob) (remove screw and pull), there will be a large nut to undo....undo it and withdraw the insert. Cleaning it thoroughly may help. it's worth a try as there only has to be a small impediment on the ceramic and it will leak.

A picture is worth a thousand words, I believe this may be your tap
hope that is helpful.

How to replace cartridge on blanco single handle

Somewhere around where the handle fixes to the tap should be a grubscrew of some kind undoing this will allow the handle to be removed this will give you access to the cartridge which can then be removed with the correct socket, obviously you will need to turn off the water supply to the tap first!!
