Hi looking for a bit of advice we have crappy push taps and i've stripped them all and cleaned them but notice when putting them back they leak from the top should I change the O-rings or are the taps in need of replacing?Cheers

Hi and welcome to the site,as for your push taps they are known as non concussive taps, they come in all types and makes, but peglar are a top brand, if you can match up the brand and type, you may get away with just changing the top, but if easy access and water stop valve is available change the whole tap, cheaper non concussive taps can be purchased at screw fix, about £25 a pair, if and when you decide to change taps, it's always worth keeping the old ones for spares, cleaning and tensioning the spring = to rob Peter to pay Paul if you get my drift, good luck [Success.png]
