Does anyone know where I might find a new aerator for my bathroom tap, locally? It's a new word to me and I am determined to change it myself, without the help of a plumber. I've even managed to remove it myself :p I'm on a mission! lol

Many thanks in advance.

Thanks, Nigel. Unfortunately they don't stock them; neither does the Plumbing Specialist in Pages Walk.

The Holy Grail was easier.......

try ebay, possibly the leyland paint shop Southwark st,they have a good plumbing section.Are you having a limescale problem with the old one if so caustic soda might do the trick

Nope, the innards fell apart and the spraying started. Leylands don't stock them either. Off to Westminster DIY on the good old C10 - they have 1 type.

Yes, I could get one online but I'd rather have one in my hot little hand, to ensure it is the correct one. However, it may come to that.

Thanks for your suggestions.

The Grail is found! In a little DIY shop not far from a C10 stop in Westminster. He sells a good few and couldn't understand why I couldn't find one, locally.

Thanks again, Nigel.

Thanks,Phoney. I'm sure it'll be handy for when the next tap goes whooooosh!
