"A few years to be honest. They sure don’t last as long as washers"

"They vary depending on hardness of water they tend to fail as limescale wears a grove between the discs causing them to drip so anywhere from 5/10 years"

"Hi, it depends on the frequency of use, and 9 times out of 10 it’s the hot water ceramic disc which goes first due to the change in temp and the metallic parts expanding and contracting, hope this helps"
