Arrived on site, primed taps and tap is leaking in bathroom, it seems to be leaking from the tap body, I've taken the panel out to get access, does the tap come apart?
Attached a picture, Cheers all

Or the ceramic disk are limescaled up, preventing a proper seal.
Tap can be dismantled and another ceramic cartridge fitted.

As mentioned above it’s probably got frost damage, I’ve got a leaking tap but in Spain for another couple of months so will leave it till I get home. Fed up of replacing theses plastic taps though so new approach next year which will be to take both taps out before we get any frost.

Thanks all, I've managed to get the tap out, its pouring out from below the plastic top bit, not frost damaged as we haven't had a frost here in Spain where I live in the 10 years we've lived here.
Have to visit our local MH dealers see what they say, or could I get a couple of blinking plugs to get me by?

I got a Reich Kama shower tap like yours last week off the shelf at Hispavan near Vera. I fitted it the same day. There were maybe 4 left in stock but they don't sell the ceramic cartridges separately.

rf9ridrer. I got ceramic cartridges off either Ebay or Amazon.
While you are at it, get yourself a couple of spare micro switches, as it is common for them to fail, due to either faulty contacts, or broken wires from the regular movement of on/off operations over the years.

HTH,

Jock. :)

Just to add, there are 2 wires from the tap but weren't connected to anything?

All sorted, got a similar shower tap, although had to fit short pieces of pipe and elbow fittings between main pipes and tap as different fittings, alls well apart from being the cost, €150!
Thanks for help and advice.
