    Tap Washers for 'Plaza' Ideal Standard taps

    About 13 years ago I had an Ideal Standard 'Plaza' suite installed in my rental property.

    Last month, my tenant asked me to free up the basin tap. I stripped it down, and greased it, but was unable to replace the washer from my Screwfix kit because there was not one anything like the one in the tap.

    Does anyone know where I can get these unusual washers from?

    Ideal Standard are alive and well so google them and buy off their website or mail order. Also try your local plumber' merchants - take old one with you.

      Thanks Interlaken,

      Both good ideas, except:

      1.) I already checked online. The only spares available are the complete valve including the washer. See here: http://www.fastpart-spares.co.uk/product.asp?ID=E6805AA

      2.) Yes, okay I suppose I could take the old one to the plumber's merchants in London, but that means leaving my tenants without a tap. I think I may buy one of the above items and swap it over to avoid this in the end.

        Alternative would be to buy new taps. Very reasonable online these days or Tool Station or similar.

          Yes, I guess you mean so that I get a tap that has a normal washer?

          I think I will just have to buy the replacement valves complete, as I rather like these taps.

            Rip-off?

            Further to those tap innards I had to buy recently:

            I just found something at B&Q for about one third the price:

            Not only that, but it looks like you can renew the washer rather than the whole thing on the B&Q version.
