leaking tap

Hi guys, Can any plumbers confirm (if possible) if this will fit my taps? I've got one that won't stop dripping. Will these fit? http://www.screwfix.com/p/flomasta-ceramic-tap-glands-24mm… Read More

why not take the old tap apart, have a look, most probably just a washer.
obviously turn water off first and turn on tap before you strip it.

I got a feeling the washer was turned over a few years ago.

The hot water tap on the sink is very stiff so think the inside will need replacing. Thought as the tap on the bath is leaking may aswell replace all 4 as in packs of two. Do the washers come in different in different sizes?

yes,
best bet take one out bath tap, one from sink.
nip to screwfix, usually you can just replace washer.

i wouldn't start replacing the taps, the body of the tap is usually fine,
the bath taps can be a pain to get off with limited access,
much easier to just sort the innards out.
and cheaper.

there will most probably be loads of videos on YouTube, watch a few, some modern taps will have ceramic inserts like you asked about,
older ones just have a brass valve and a rubber washer,
you won't know until you strip yours,
personally I would advise do it in the morning, then you can get bits, fit them, if anything gos wrong or you need some more bits you have plenty of time before shops close.

You just need normal 1/2 valves. (not ceramic)
#16
if the tap just needs a quarter turn to open fully it'll be a ceramic valve, numerous turns mean it's a rubber washer, no need to strip it to find the difference.
#17
Numerous turns bud. I changed the washer yesterday for 75p
