How To Remove Basin Taps Caroma

To remove basin taps from a caroma, you can follow these steps:

  1. Shut off the water supply: Before starting, locate the shut-off valves underneath the basin and turn them clockwise to shut off the water supply.
  2. Open the taps: Turn on the taps to release any remaining pressure and drain the water from the system.
  3. Disconnect the water supply lines: Use an adjustable wrench to disconnect the water supply lines attached to the underside of the taps. Turn the nuts counterclockwise to loosen them and then remove them completely.
  4. Remove the tap handles: Depending on your specific caroma model, the tap handles may have either a screw or a lever that holds them in place. Use a screwdriver or an Allen key (hex key) to remove the screws or loosen the lever. Once the holding mechanism is loosened, you can take off the tap handles.
  5. Loosen the tap flange: Underneath the tap handles, you’ll find a flange or a decorative cap. Use a flathead screwdriver or a similar tool to gently pry off the flange. Set it aside once it is removed.
  6. Unscrew the tap spindles: Below the flange, you’ll find the tap spindles. They are attached to the basin using large nuts. Use a pair of adjustable pliers or a spanner to loosen the nuts by turning them counterclockwise. Once they are loose, you can remove the spindles by pulling them straight out.
  7. Clean and prepare the basin: Once the taps are removed, clean the basin surface around the tap holes to remove any dirt or debris. You can also use this opportunity to apply a silicone sealant around the tap holes if needed.

To install new taps, simply reverse these steps, making sure to tighten everything securely and turn on the water supply once the new taps are installed.
