I would contact them from this website http://www.blancoamerica.com/index.html?p=CONTACT_US and request a special order direct from the wear house. You could possibly get it for free depending how long you have owned it.

SOURCE: I have a mixer tap

You will have to turn off your water mains and strip your mixer tap. It is possible that the seal (if it is an older tap with a rubber seal) has become stuck or the threaded part that turns it has gone faulty. If it is a modern tap with ceramic seals, check the operation of the mechanism and see why the ceramic seal is not being opened.

SOURCE: blanco bt1000 How do you fit

There is a set screw on the handle that has to be removed first. Then unscrew the filler between the top and the spout.

SOURCE: The small round metal mesh

Hi Jean,

These mesh discs and the part they go into - along with a few other small parts - make up what is called "an aerator".

Most aerators simply screw on threads at the end of your faucet. You can remove it by twisting it. You may need a wrench to loosen it first. Wrap the aerator in thick cloth / towel so that the wrench does not dent or scrape the finish on the aerator body.

Some aerators thread up and inside the faucet - rather than at the end - and need a special wrench to remove

Once removed, you should reassemble the parts and reinstall on the faucet. You may find replacement aerators in Home Depot, Lowe's, etc. if you're missing parts, etc. If changing it out, be sure to bring the old one with you to match.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Moen 7700 kitchen faucet leaks at base of spout


The cylinder which surrounds the bottom of the spout is part of the spout. The cylinder is sealed with o-rings at top and bottom. They probably need replaced. Feel free to use lubricant.

Hi, we have a tapmate futura kitchen mixer tap that is constantly dripping. you used to be able to buy spare seal kits direct from the Berglen group in watford but seem to have disappeared any one out...


The suggestions above are rubbish. The problem is common with the Futura, because the spout is moved usually through 180 degrees. The kit consists of a plastic barrier washer, and o ring. Sometimes with the replacement grub screw. Tapmate was Berglen and Berglen was swallowed up by Damixa which in turn was taken by Bristan who have some spares but I don't know if they have this. Otherwise there is an overseas website for Damixa

Atriflo oberon kitchen tap dripping. looking for manual to fix along with source of any washers / parts i may need


Isolate hot and cold suplies in turn and to identify which valve is letting by. Ring Atriflo (Perrin & Rowe) on 01708 526361 (Mon-Fri) to order the correct valve. For the Oberon the parts are Hot: 9.13145; Cold: 9.13146, but check with them first - they are very helpful and on the ball.To access the valve remove the handle (unscrew manually); remove the handle coupler (size 14 hex. bit) and gently unscrew the chrome bell-shaped valve shroud. (A mole wrench gently applied, with suitable padding to avoid dinking the chrome, does it nicely.) All will then be revealed.

I purchased the Danco 80701 "Repair Kit for Delta, Aquasource, and Glacier Bay Faucets with #70 Ball" so that I can repair a leak in my Delta kitchen faucet. The instructions on the package are...


Sounds like the old style center-control delta type faucet, rubber washers describe older type but still good. The rubber seats have holes in middle, supply water to the cylinder which diverts water to the spout, and has a seal over top of ball allowing stem for handle.

Think they are talking about flex-hose type faucet accessory getting clogged, Maybe: lift the flex-hose faucet housing off the center-control faucet body? Water to it runs directly from center-control faucet and if broken seat gets in narrow line could inhibit spray.

Kitchen faucet spout too has an O-ring under where it connects to the faucet body. Unscrew large nut where meets the faucet body unit (slip-joint pliers), once free of threads, spout should pull straight up, easy or slight tug. I use bent paper clip to remove old one trying to save it in one piece so as to get exact size (that's important) to replace, push on one side then other.

The cause of leaking is the ceramic gasket. Yes you can replaced it. Find your local hardware store then buy a repair kit for that faucet. If you can bring the sample bring it.

Go to www.super-electric.com and send them a message about your problem. They have parts. I can't tell you if they will help you or not, I have just emailed them today as well. I have both sides of my 1 year old water cooler leaking, model W074DRF11BQD. (from Zellers) I have hardwood floors and I would rather throw this unit away than risk water damage. If anyone is reading this and thinking of purchasing one of these Bellagio water coolers, spend your money elsewhere - THEY LEAK!. My husband is very handy and has just spent 2 hours on it with NO success. The parts are defective - this unit is NOT full of complex working parts. One plastic part causes pressure on the valve and causes a leak(s). After light usage and nothing damaging it, 8 months old one side went and the other side has been leaking for a couple of days and we are just coming up to a year. If anyone else had this problem and fixed it, I would love to hear the solution.
