Past present or future?

But seriously is it a single hot cold vertical quarter turn tap or a single quarter turn tap.
Quarter turn taps have no washer they have ceramic disc cartridges that are difficult to replace unless you can get the exact one for your tap.
I have repaired a dripping quarter turn tap by inserting a bit of 5amp fuse wire under the top washer thereby putting more pressure on the cartridge

I do believe you've hit the nail on the proverbial head.

After 'considerable' 'research', and without being under the influence of anything evil, I discovered:

Satanism is on the rise, according to the International Association of Exorcists, whose members recently convened with Pope Francis to receive a blessing at the Vatican.

The group, which consists of around 300 members, gathered in Rome last week to discuss the impact of the occult and Satanism with the Pope, who is adamant about the fight against Satan in his sermons. The Pope took time to commend the group for helping those who are suffering from the "devil's works."

Valter Cascioli, a spokesman for the organization, warned of an "extraordinary increase in demonic activity" during a segment on Vatican radio. He also claims that people are turning to dark practices that are damaging psychologically, spiritually and morally at an alarming rate.

Well if it's OK with the Pople, it's OK with me!!!

After all these many years he still makes house calls, but the one and only way to get a hold of him is to wish upon a star; it has never ever made any difference to him who you are!

It may well be expansion, I've not had any experience with the temperature extremes that you suffer, there, so it is guessing. It might be as simple as a tap washer that needs replacing.

It varies. Sometimes a steady trickle which doesn't come out hot and sometimes a full flood which does. I have nothing anywhere near that could be knocking against it but accept that maybe the trickle is due to me thinking I've turned it full way when I haven't. I suspect that it is something to do with pipe expansion when the central heating clicks on and off - do you think that might be a possibility?

How far,dripping part way or full on?

If its just hot water, it will be a side to side thing. Is there something leaning against the lever? Or falling on it? The whole point of them is that they are easy to turn on and off.

I have a hot water tap in the bathroom (with a lever rather than a traditional turn kind) that is turning itself on from time to time. The last time was a couple of days ago in the middle of the night.
