Re: Taps with old fashioned washers v ceramic discs

My ceramic disc taps in the kitchen lasted about 20 years before I needed to replace the cartridges. Much better than normal washers I reckon.
However, I discovered that my taps still drip for a few minutes after turning them off because the flow straightener insert in the mixer has been cracked open by a build up of limescale. Water in the mixer spout (already past the ceramic discs in the taps) therefore continues to drip.
