Rated 5 out of 5 Tap reseating tool
I wish i had bought one years ago - at this price it's a steal & no more dripping taps did all the taps while the water was off!

I had a persistent drip from the cold side of a mixer unit. The tap is integral to the plug hole linkage and I really didn't want to renew it all. The seat had a deep erosion channel and it took two hours to grind it out. I was oh so tempted to cut off the black handle and attach the steel shaft to my drill! A few tips: wear a glove if the job looks to be lengthy - I got a blister. Remove the tool regularly and brush the brass swarf from the cutting head. On a standard basin tap it helps to alternate between the smallest cutter and the mid-sized cutter - but always finish with the correct sized head for a smooth level finish. The correct size cutter will usually be the same diameter as the washer.

I previously had a tap reseater just the same as this that lasted me a number of years. When it came up for replacement a few months ago I opted for a more expensive version and was very disappointed. So I then got this one and it works as well as my old one quickly grinding away the tap seat evenly and smoothly. I think this works so well due to the space between the grinding teeth as you continuously clean the more expensive version's grinding area that is much closer and clogs quickly.

This cheap, reliable tool, from a good manufacturer, is great for solving the age old problem of leaking taps, when new washers don't make any difference. It's easy to use and fits most modern bath and basin taps and compared to the price of new taps or using a plumber it's a no brainer.
