This will adversely effect the Lifespan of the Cartridge as well as the functionality of the taps and mixers
4. The inlet connectors must be fitted with the correct tool and not over tightened (Do not use water pump pliers, vice grips and shifting spanners or pipe wrenches) the correct tool is a combination spanner.
