    That sounds like something Les Dawson might have said!

      Seal Spout Aerator?

      I just bought a new one of these to replace one my tenant removed:

      I'm blowed if I can get the thread sealed. I have tried PTFE tape & Boss Green, but the water still keeps dribbling down the neck of the tap due to the leaking thread. What am I doing wrong?

        Is the O ring insufficient or maybe the thread not long enough - pic suggests that but it might be the graphic. I might try seating O ring in with stixall or plumbers gold.

        since changing format again my print has gone very small on LLZ - anyone else getting this?

            Could be wrong, but don't those need to be used with a fibre washer - this sort of thing? If so, could be missing or damaged...?

              Thanks Eric. There is a rubber washer, but that didn't seem to do anything. I have now replaced the Aerator with a different type that doesn't swivel, and that sealed okay with PTFE tape. I begin to wonder if my other one was faulty.
