Remove tap spindle from the tap body. A spanner will be required to do this. Then, screw spindle as if turning tap off so that the spindle comes out of the bottom of the tap fitting. Clean the thread of the spindle then apply tap spindle silicone lubricate. Install spindle & reinstall into tap fitting and you should have an easily operated tap again.

The SharkBite System: is a range of pipe fittings that are quick and easy to install, making it the most time efficient plumbing system available.
