A leaky valve causes the water to slowly drip from the end of the spout and can only be fixed by replacing the valve.
Please note there are several manufacturers who have copied the design of the tap so if you did not buy the tap from us check your valve is the same size before ordering.
The valve will NOT fit taps from Microlene, Mitre 10 or PureZone models. These taps do not have valves available so will need total replacement. Please refer to our replacement tap page.
