Leaking taps

the bathroom sink taps have been leaking for a while, i replaced the washers and this lasted about 2 days. then i reseated the spindle bit where the washers go and this lasted a couple of days, but ultimately the tap started to re drip. i tried to replace the whole spindle but the size didn't seem to work, it appeared to be an odd size compared to the different types I could source at Bunnings.

long explaination short, i now just want to replace the existing whole sink with an above counter sink

Mondella 410mm White Rococo Square Vitreous China Basin - 1 Tap Hole

and a new tap system

Evacare Extended Lever Basin Mixer

could someone explain if I can replace the 3 hole sink with the 1 hole sink and the tap above if this is possible?? and will it fix my leaking issue??

Re: Leaking taps

Hi @unskilled,

 

Welcome to the Workshop community and thanks for making your first post. I suspect most Workshop community members would encourage you to engage a plumber for this job, but feel free to post anytime you need a hand with anything around the house and garden. And please let me know if you ever need help getting the most from the Workshop site.

Hi

Yes you can and yes it would solve drip. But you will need to cut and join water pipes to make it fit. Having read other forums on this its strictly a plumber job if you like your insurance etc.  Have you tried a hydroseal tap seat replacement set, this will give you a new seat? Available at Bunnings. If its the spindle, you can take the spindle to a plumbing shop they would be able to match it. Must admit new basin looks nice.
