About this deal

Product details

Got a leaking tap? Say goodbye to noise and dripping with these tap heads. They're made to fit most 1/2" taps with 20 teeth on the spleen – and they're easy to install too.

These quarter-turn tap glands are made from ceramic and need just a 90° turn for you to get water at full pressure. Not only is that quarter turn slightly more convenient, but it also means that members of your household apply less friction to the discs every time they use the tap.

Thanks to the reduced wear and tear on the washers and the harder nature of ceramic (which results in less water erosion) these valves will then last for years. This pair of valves are distinguishable from each other with a red or blue washer, so you can identify hot and cold water easily.

• Ceramic tap glands to fit most 1/2" taps

• 10.5 mm spline height

• 20 teeth on the spline

• 90° turn for ease of use, and reduced wear and tear

• Red and blue washers for easy identification

    Any recommendations please? I need some for my Frankie Zurich kitchen mixer tap, although I haven't been able to get the turn handle off yet, so might be a new tap instead. Thanks

    Yeah still haven't managed to find an exact fit for my tap, in the end just got close enough and didn't bother replacing the metal cover on top

    Careful with repairing existing. Can be a pain and make it worse so make sure you can live without the tap if you try. I removed mine and drove around to nearest plumbers and found a matching set for less than £10. I also managed to find replacements on eBay using my Vernier caliper measuring tool.

    Sometimes you can fix these without replacing the whole cartridge.
    On one I fixed a silicon washer had failed rather than the ceramic discs.
    You can buy kits for the parts on ebay but I've not tried them. They seemed too small for mine.
    This video may help.

    This is a marvellous video - thank you. I have a leaky bath tap which two different plumbers said they'd get back to me about the cartridge and never did (the cartridge is very long).

    I'm tempted to take the cartridge out now and have a look at cleaning it. I live in a very hard water area and thought it could be the limescale clogging it up - and perhaps it could be cleaned.

    No need for sealant or anything else?

    The spline height is the issue, needle in a haystack for most people.

    Be nice to someone with bad hands, treat them to 1/4 turn taps, they are so much less painful to use.
