Basin mixer maintenance tips for Australian homes

It is not really too difficult to maintain your basin mixers. First, you need to check the washer or the cartridge for tear and wear or cracks that can lead to leaks. Washers are made of rubber while cartridges are from ceramic. 


So, if you check regularly you will be able to see their conditions. Then, if you find hard water mineral buildup on them or rust, use vinegar on them and let it rest for a few minutes and then clean them up with a clean rug. That is it!

Why choose BHL to buy Wall mixer?

It is because you will have a hard time finding a better price for the build quality and the quality of the materials for your products. BHL offers the best balance of price and quality for your wall basin mixer taps.

FAQs

Here are some important frequently asked questions and answers for your convenience.

How to replace basin taps and spout?

  1. The basic thing to do before you change the spout is to shut down the main water supply of your house. Turn the valve off right below the basin. 

  2. Now open the tap to release all the remaining water inside the pipe.

  3. Find out the screw that connects the handle to the stem of the tap or the tap’s cartridge. Open the screw with a screwdriver and remove the handle.

  4. Use pliers to rotate the adjustable collar to remove it from the tap.

  5. The spout of the tap has a cap on top of it. Move it counterclockwise with pliers to remove it and open up the ring that resides on the housing of the spout. 

  6. Use the pliers again and move that ring counterclockwise so that you can remove the ring from its position.

  7. Now you can take the spout out of its housing.

Are all basin tap holes the same size?

If by ‘are all the basin tap holes the same size’ you mean if there is a set global standard of tap holes, then the answer is “no”. Why? It depends on the type of configuration you have on your basin or tubs. You need to know the basins or tubs space to select a specific type of tap and then search for the one that meets your taste and your tubs. 


That means, there are so many standards out there. So, you have to find the size of space on your tub or basin for taps and then measure the space and then talk to a store owner or a plumber to find what type of taps would actually fit there.

Can you use basin taps on a bath?

Well, the answer to ‘can you use basin taps on a bath’ is not so simple! First of all, there are two types of mixer taps - separate spouts and taps for hot and cold, and one spout and tap with two handles or one handle for hot and cold water. You can use any of the types on your tub and basin. But there will be some measurements involved.

Usually, the connecting pipe between bathroom basin mixer taps and the water supply measures half of an inch while bath taps connect to the supply with pipes of three fourth of an inch. 

How to change bathroom basin taps?

Actually, it is the same as the replacement process of tap and spout. We have already mentioned this as the answer to the first question in this ‘bathroom basin mixer taps in Australia’ titled article. 


First of all, find out which type of tap you have. Find the cap at the top of the handle or the screw beneath the tap. Turn the water supply valve off. Remove the cap on the handle or remove the screw. Then remove the body of the tap. 

How to fit basin mixer tap?


  1. Turn the main water supply off.

  2. First of all, follow the steps written in the answer to ‘How to replace basin taps and spout?”

  3. After you have removed the tap, clean the area with a rug or towel. Connect the tap tails to the body of the tap. Tighten it. At the bottom, connect the fixing stud. The tap should be placed at a right angle to the basin tap hole. The tails and the stud will enter through the hole. From below the basin hole you have to push the washer and the retainer plate up the stud. Now, the nuts will go up the stud as well. Now, check if the positioning of the tap is alright or not. If the positioning is okay, you need to tighten all nuts with the spanner. Turn the water supply back on. Check for leaks by turning the tap on. After checking thoroughly, turn off the tap. If there is any leak, turn the water supply off, and tighten the nuts and all the connectors.

That is it for ‘how to fit basin mixer taps in Australia’.

  1. You need to turn the main water supply line off. 

  2. Now, turn the handle of the mixer tap/s on to release all the remaining water from the pipe.

  3. Now, we will have to find out how to remove the plastic cap or cover. They are located on your mixer handle. Use the Stanley knife to remove the cap. 

  4. When you successfully remove the grub screw the handle will also become loose. Use a baking soda and vinegar mixture on the build-up and let it seat for half an hour or so. You will be able to remove the handle then.

  5. There is a dress ring that needs to come off. Use a wrench to remove it. Once it is removed, the retaining nut will be exposed. You can use the spanner to loosen and remove it. Once it is removed the cartridge made of ceramic will be exposed. Now, next is removing it.

  6. Remove the old cartridge and put a new cartridge on. The model has to be the same. Read the instructions provided by the manufacturer. You need to ensure the locator pin matches.

  7. Once it is done, put the mixer’s body on top of the cartridge. Just reverse the whole process. Check for leaks by opening the main water line. If everything is ok, you are done!
