Plumber Frankston: George Street Pillar Taps Replacement

Recently we received a call from a customer who required a new set of pillar taps installed in place of their old ones. The old pillar taps installed where extremely old and very hard to turn on and off.

Pillar taps are an older style of tap that keeps the hot and cold water separate. These where commonly used in older laundry troughs but have also been used in basins and other other sinks alike.

At this job our plumbers started by removing the old pillar taps and cleaning thew old teflon away from the exposed lugged elbow thread. Following this we used our thread cutting tool to smooth off the end of the lugged elbow so that our new pillar taps could be installed with ease. We also removed the old cover plates that sit to cover any uneven hole in the tiles behind the lugged elbow.

We then proceeded to install the new chrome cover plates and this time using loxeal instead of teflon we made a tight and neat seal when threading the new pillar taps back into position. After the tap ware was installed we then proceeded to turn the water back on to the property and tested our customers new tap for correct operation.
