I've removed various kind of tap heads, intended to repair, eventually ended up whole set replacement.

Your turn now. :dribble:

Head 'drips' over time cos of valve mechanical slight misalignment.

Valve is the 'heart' of the whole tap.

Some 'heart' can be replaced while some not.

I prefer replacing whole tap head these days......

Water pressure plays a part too. Low pressure (during rush hour), it drips.

One way i 'discovered' - off the hander in a 'fast & quick' manner helps.

Replacing the valve only cost a few dollars, but u have to find spare parts that is of correct length.

so most will rather replace the entire tap.

I used to use Pozzi tap for my kitchen sink, so I assume the valve design is the same.

Mine was also starting to leak, the 'O' ring was no good (red in color if I remember correctly) and leaking from the tap although it was closed.

It cannot be replace. I tried but could not find the correct size 'O' ring in the market.

End up replace the whole tap.

But I was able to find the O ring for my bathroom sink tap. Also Pozzi. Strange they use different design.

I think it is not a China brand but I am not surprise if it is made in China (like everything else these days).

Anyway, I replace with a another tap (brand-less) which I got from a neighbor hood hardware shop. Before the purchase, I ask the seller if the rubber seal can be replace. He's reply was: these days, it is hard to find such taps.

Anyway, I decided that for a $40+ dollar tap, if it last me for 3 or 4 years, I should be happy with it.

Being handy is good or no good depends on how a person look at it (and also the mood at that moment).

When my parents-in-law moved house a few years, I installed all the toilet roll holder, shower set, towel hanger, etc... for them. At that time, my wife said it is good to have a hands on man in the house.

Recently my daughter's room air-con leak water on Sat night. Sunday go where find A/C technician? And if I can find, sure kena slaughter.

Anyway, it is just a choke drain pipe, so I DIY.

This time, my wife comment that I am a 'cheapo'.

Over the weekend, notice the $40+ tap is leaking (water dripping when closed) again, so it lasted for about 3.5 years.

Do you let me know how to dissemble it so I can replace the O ring? Since I try to scroll out the screw, yet cannot open the cover to find the valve.

Appreciation  your help.
