I've been fixing leaking faucets in a bathroom. There are total six faucets in a bathroom, two made into a bathroom basin, two made into the wall in the shower tube and the last two are on the wall on top of the mop sink.
I have fixed the leaks with basin's faucets but was unable to do it with other four faucets because have failed to remove the faucet covers.
They seems to be stuck. To get a better grip I wrapped some duct tape around the chrome covers and then used the spanner - but to no avail. Tried the strap wrench - no luck too.
I thought it could be the silicon sealant that glued the covers to the wall - but after I have removed most of the sealant (used the sealant remover to soften the sealant and then putty knife) it has not not changed the situation at all as the cover is still stubornly refusing to unscrew.
Any ideas how can I get these covers off? Can you recomend some special tools? I was thinking about a type of a pipe wrench for cone shaped pipe (as the cover is shaped as a cone)?
