"I admit I was sceptical about this tool despite the glowing reports from other reviewers. The main reason was that my tap seat, rather than being "pitted" actually had a small chunk of brass misssing from the seat! I decided that there was some brass left under the missing chunk so used this tool to grind down the seat. I needed to remove around 1 mm of brass. I managed it over a period of about 45 minutes with careful (and gentle) rotation of the tool, as the instructions state. I was absolutely delighted with the result - solid shiny brass surface, no sign of pitting or cavities and dead flat. My dripping tap of 2 years is fixed! A bonus is that a spare cutter is supplied but the first one I used showed no signs of wear even after this mammoth effort. A truly spectacular tool worth every penny!"
"This help solve several problem tap and fixed one bath tap that had a heavily damaged seat and would have cost +£100 to replace it took about 30 minutes work to solve the problem ( I wished they made a version for power tools , it would have solved the problem in 5 mins )"
"After replacing a washer in my previous house, and still having a slight drip, I thought I'd invest in one of these for my new house which has a couple of dripping taps.
The tool is easy enough to use, but did need a few runs before the seat was cleaned up (as others have suggested.) For the limited use it will get in my domestic environment I hope the tool will last for some time."
"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."
"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."
"Bought this as I replaced washer on tap but still had a drip. Good price and was ready for me went I went to the shop, Easy to use took 6 turns of the tool and refitted tap and drip has stopped. Worth having in your toolbox"
"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."
"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.."
"Excellent value, excellent website, very very easy to use, delivery criteria excellent, I am always recommending Screwfix to other trade collegues. I will continue to use Screwfix in the future and look forward to a good ongoing relationship."
"This cheap, reliable tool, from a good manufacturer, is great for solving the age old problem of leaking taps, when new washers don't make any difference. It's easy to use and fits most modern bath and basin taps and compared to the price of new taps or using a plumber it's a no brainer."
After some more working. Combined with new seal, tap now works perfectly.
"I used this to renew an outside tap. The base of the seal was significantly pitted and this tool smoothed out the seal very nicely. Combined with a new washer, the tap now closes with the lightest of turns."
