Leak on an exposed victorian shower mixer
Hi, I have an exposed thermostatic shower mixer. It is a Victorian design style. There is a hot water arm on the left if the unit and a cold water one on the right. Similar to this...https://www.victorianplumbing.co.uk/trafalgar-traditional-dual-exposed-thermostatic-shower-valve?campaign=googlebase&gclid=CJC_0sfZktACFQaeGwodRvYELA
There is a leak coming from the cold water arm. Not the connection with the wall but rather the section after the 90degree be d (the arm as I am describing it) before it gets to the main unit. The leak is originating from the main unit and is being pushed backwards and there is a 1mm gap around the arm section that joins the main unit. The drip / leak is coming from there.
Any ideas what's wrong, what needs to be done?
I think that after sometime the washers perish could be simple washer replacement
