Plumbing merchants in Basel??

Hello all,

One of our taps has broken with just a small piece that has cracked which is used to open and close the tap.

I can fit this myself, but refuse to contact the managing agents as a tradie will charge over CHF100 for a job that will take less than 2 mins.

Could anyone recommend a plumbing merchant where I can simply get the part(s) and then I can fit it myself in Basel?

Just went to Bau + Hobby and OBI and lunchtime and they don't stock such things as the part is too small for their inventory.

Any advice will be most welcome.

Cheer and thanks

They sell second-hand plumbing parts here.

Turnerstrasse 32
4058 Basel
Telefon 061 690 90 10
Take the broken bit with you and they will find something that fits. (Maybe)

Otherwise Tomassetti or Stieber+Ehret in Klein-Basel. They aren`t really into selling spares but I have got bits from both with persuasion. They will probably try and send you somewhere else but they have all the bits.

Thanks very much - never understand why the simple things are so bloody difficult to do!

Nice, but not sure the fluorescent bulb quite does the trick. A multi-coloured LED, on the other hand...
