FAQ's

  • My Tap doesn't face the right way.
    • Turn the tap to face the direction you want, then use the lock nut to lock it into that position. 
  • I can't thread my new tap on the facet?
    • The primary reason this happens is if you have a tap facet with metric threads. 99% of US facets have a 3/8-16 thread, but occasionally there are some metric versions with a M10-1.5 thread. There are a couple of ways to fix this. They have adapters on Amazon (look for tap handle adapter), or you can replace the facet with a new one. This isn't very hard and facets are pretty inexpensive too. 
    • The other reason is that the ferrule on the bottom of the tap has bad threads. If this is the case, please let us know and we'll send a new one out to you.
