why your taps are dripping
Traditional spindles are fitted into the seat of the tap and tightened with a spanner. The washers wear out and as water pressure fluctuates, eventually water pushes up past the washer and starts to drip. The harder you tighten the handle to stop the dripping, the problem escalates leading to a tap that sticks and wont budge - leaving a tap that still drips. This is the reason why you need to change washers because inevitably, they deteriorate over time.
XValve Washer free design
Washer free XValve Spindles are screwed down into the seat of the tap and Tightened with a spanner. Water pushes up to seal the tap providing a much better, water tight result. The higher the pressure, the better the seal. The spindle rotates and pushes down the piston to the let the water flow. There are no washers to fail, no dripping taps and no maintenance required!
