    The kitchen cold mixer tap won’t shut off. What can be done to shut this off and repair it?
    I have turned the water off at the mains.
    All thanks for replies

    Please share a photo of it. It is most likely a faulty cartridge, but we'd need to see it to be sure

    Often cost effective to just replace it.
    How old is it and do the taps open/close by a 1/4 turn or take more rotations to open/close.

    Thanks for replies. I’ll post a photo later this evening. It is 15/16 years old but not heavy duty use.

    P
    15/16 yrs old. The lever opens the tap by turning towards or away ( through a charcoal filter but not much used)

    If you attempt to repair it yourself then the two biggest problems are getting to the cartridge and removing it/them and then finding the replacement from dozens of cartridges available. If you pay somebody to do the work then it might well be quicker and cheaper to replace.
