    Washer for this tap?

    Anyone know what type of tap this is or better yet what type of washer it takes as it’s constantly dripping

    It's probably better to start a new thread, rather than add on to an 8 year-old, only vaguely related thread. And posting in the correct sub-forum would have been helpful too.
    My guess is it's probably a 1/4 turn tap, which doesn't have a replaceable washer.

          Old taps all use the same type of tap washer so they were pretty easy to get a replacement washer.
          1/4 trun monoblock taps have a cartridge with ceramic discs rather than washers.
          Different manufacturers have different cartridges, just take a look here for some of the many different types:

          Yours are probably one of the brass bodied types rather than those fancy plastic ones.
          Often the tricky point with those is simply the splines (teeth) at the top where the tap handle fits on, different cartridges have different numbers and sizes of teeth. Again you can see some of the differences on that Amazon page.

          If you know the make of your taps then you should be able to get replacement cartridges, or take the old one out, take it down to your local plumbers merchants and ask for 'one like that'.

          TBH it can sometimes be difficult to find the right replacement cartridge if you don't know the make of tap, and it's sometimes easier just to remove the whole tap assembly from the sink and fit a new one.
