Frequently Asked Questions: Hot Ceramic Tap Gland Cartridge

This anti-clockwise close hot ceramic tap gland cartridge can be fitted in many tap models used throughout the UK. This spare part is reliable and is able to address tap issues such as leaks and poor water flow. Should you have any questions, please contact us and we will be more than happy to personally respond to your queries.

Question: The tap makes a loud noise when it is in use. Does this have to do with the ceramic tap cartridge?
Answer: Check the water pressure. It might be too high. When water pressure is excessive it can damage the tap valve or the ceramic tap gland cartridge.

If there are no problems with the pressure, a replacement cartridge may stop the loud noise.

Question: I also need the cold cartridge to let the plumber do a complete repair.
Answer: DF8180 is the ceramic cartridge replacement tap gland for the cold valve. Please visit the page for a Tap Spare Part Buying Guide.

Tap Repair Tip:
To remove the handle and access the cartridge, look for the handle retaining screw. It can be hidden under a cover cap or the red/blue indice. The screw can be a grub screw which can be removed using a 2mm or 2.5mm Allen key. Depending on the tap model you have, the screw can be found:

– at the back of the handle,
– in the front of the handle,
– or at the side of the handle.

You can see the plumber’s grease we offer in the last section of the page. This silicone-based and heat-resistant lubricant will help the replacement ceramic tap cartridge fit in the tap valve.
