Great tool
12 Nov 2014
By Phrogge
, Dorset
"I have been having issues with a leaking tap for a while and the Reseating Tool did just what was required, granted I had to use it more than the recommended 5 - 6 turns but the end result was the same.
I would recommend this tool to anyone with a leaking tap when changing the rubber washers doesn't help.
I'm not too sure about reliability as I've only used it once, I couldn't see any wear at all so I'd expect it to last quite some time.

Every DIYer Needs One!
4 Nov 2014

"I had been promising myself one of these for ages. Such a simple tool which can bring old leaking taps back to life as good as new. The tap seat I needed to restore was badly pitted and required more than the suggested 5-6 turns. More like 40 turns, but this did a perfect job. Seems to work with a wide variety of tap types and sizes."

No more drips
18 Jun 2014
By MrAveragefromBristol
, Bristol
"This tool fixed my constantly dripping hot tap easily and efficiently.
I needed to use it twice to get a nice clean finish to the tap seat (I wasn't pressing that hard) but the result is a tap that can be turned off with ease and absolutely no drips.
Very happy customer."

It works...
21 May 2014
By DrRich
, Dorchester
"I bought this rather than replacing the mixer tap in the kitchen which had a deep groove from years of dripping that had finally turned into a trickle.
It comes with 3 sizes of reaming bit and fits 4 tap sizes. Requires a bit of effort to use but works like a dream.
Also repaired our outside tap that has been faulty for even longer and even more damaged, so quids in!"

Works like a dream
2 Apr 2014
By cdlnet
, Salisbury
"One of the seats on a bidet mixer tap had been badly damaged, so I bought this tool as a last ditch attempt before replacing the tap. It did a perfect job. Took quite a time to remove all the damage, but it had to cut quite a lot of seat. The other seat was very quick. No visible sign of wear on the cutter. A simple tool, but worth every penny."

Try if new a washer didnt work
15 Nov 2013
By blobbyman
, Surrey
"As previous reviewers have stated, its simple but brilliant, my despair became an "I did it!"
Bought mine in desparaton after changing the washer didn't make a difference to a fast dripping tap.
This tool trims/ levels/ cleans the ring where the washer connects when tap is closed.
Have since used when renewing further 2 washers..

Pretty good
14 Dec 2013
By Dan4DIY
, Poole
"I wasn't sure about this as it's made of plastic and I'm used to a good old-fashioned solid metal one.
However, it's not bad. The cutter was a little tamer than I'm used to so it took a while to resurface a tap seat but did the job well.
For the price it's pretty good. If I was a full-time plumber I'd buy something a bit more substantial but for occasional use it's fine!"

Great for occasional use
20 Aug 2011
By BearImp
, Ware, Hertfordshire
"Fine if you only need to reseat a tap infrequently (like me). Take you're time so as not to bounce & cause damage to tap seat. One niggle is that there are 3 cutting discs of various sizes but only room to store 2 of them on the tool when not in use. I just know the 3rd is going to get lost at some point.
For the money, they're good.

"Does the job eventually, but had to apply a lot of pressure and used cutting paste; might be worthwhile putting in a drill to lesson effort."
