How do I remove the headgear on a Moretti Forte sink tap

The tap is dripping from the spout but there is no cover or anything that would hide a screw. This is a cartridge type tap. It has been suggested that the headgear itself unscrews but I put quite a bit of pressure on it and there was no movement and I don't want to break it! Anyone know how to do this?

Hi gt_elijah.

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

You want to know if there any way to tighten a faucet on a kitchen sink?

Yes! All faucets have to be secure, but there are as many diferent methods as there are diferent manufacturers. If you are unfamiliar with the diferent methods then you might not recognize the screw, nut, bolt or fitting when you look at it. Also, for many, a special tool is required. It might be wise to have someone local look at it.

Your problem is a simple one.

  1. Turn off water to faucet.
  2. Place a towel(s) in the base of the sink(s) to prevent any parts from going down drain.
  3. Remove the handle to the faucet. (single handle only)
  4. If not a single handle then remove spout from faucet.
  5. If a single handle remove cap carefully and any loose parts.
  6. Gently turn spout side to side while lifting to remove.
  7. You will see a hole with a very small valve where the water comes out to the spout on the base of the faucet.

  1. Remove this valve (which is a backflow preventer) and replace.
  2. Reassemble and test.
Problem solved.

ouch sadly im sure it was pricy to have him out  so my suggestion would be to call him back and have him take off the price of what he charged you or have him fix it for no charge could be just need some plumbers putty around the faucet to stop a little water that may seep threw under the faucet good luck

Vessel sink


Hi, I presume you mean that the water spout is dripping when the taps are opened, remove the spout (it either unscrews anticlockwise using a tool or pulls up with force) , at the base is a o-ring that needs to be replaced, obtainable from local hardware store.Hope this helps.

Dripping faucet


first step would be to change the rubber washer or o ring.
  1. buy a proprietary washer kit from any DIY store.
  2. Turn water off at isolating valve on teh pipe underneath the sink / bath or at the mains and or hot water tank as appropriate
  3. Remove the top of the faucet (often there is a plastic circle at the top that prises off to reveal a screw - mixer taps may have a grub screw on the side)
  4. Gently using a wrench to loosen the nut unscrew and remove the tap (faucet) barrell (middle bit)
  5. Remove nut that holds washer in place and remove it or, in the case of an O ring - prise it off with a pin or needle.
  6. Reassemble in reverse order - do not over-tighten.
If that doesn't stop the drip then the seat that the rubber washer / O ring seals against may be pitted or grooved. Either buy or hire a 'tap (faucet) seating tool.
  1. Turn off water before opening the faucet
  2. dismantle faucet as above
  3. Find which of the sleeve adapters that comes with the seating tool is teh right one to screw into the top of the faucet body
  4. select the grinding disc that is closest to the size of the seat and screw it onto the end of the seating tool
  5. Screw the tool into place in the top of the faucet body - just finger tight.
  6. Pressing down firmly with even pressure (but not too hard) on the top of the seating tool rotate the handle backwards and three or four complete rotations.
  7. reassemble the faucet but DO NOT close the faucet off
  8. slowly turn the water back on and allow it to flow hard for a few seconds to flush and debris out of the spout
  9. Slowly close the faucet and check for leaks.
  10. If necessary repeat re-seating process

Water is dripping out the back of the the Danza 61/9 kitchen faucet


Just in case you need to do so.
  1. Turn the water off. The water control knob is located under your sink and is connected to the drain. Turn it counterclockwise to turn off the water.

  2. 2

    Open the faucet to relieve any differences in pressure. Pull up on the faucet as you would if you were turning it on.

  3. 3

    Plug the drain of the sink with its stopper to prevent any parts from going down it.

  4. 4

    Turn the faucet handle sharply to one side to reveal a small cover plate. Pry the plate off carefully with a flat-bladed screwdriver.

  5. 5

    Unscrew the screw that is located behind the cover plate with a 4 mm allen key.

  6. 6

    Lift the handle off and remove the cap beneath it.

  7. 7

    Firmly grip the exposed cartridge with your hands and pull up to remove it.

I would get the repair kit before you start. The video below is not your brand faucet but the o-ring replacement is about the same. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AipEYoYiIhc

Leaking Kitchen Tap


I am assuming that your kitchen tap is leaking through the spout

if it is single lever you will need to remove the crown and spout by removing a small erasure size cap on the housing right under the spout or up near the back of the ever then use a hex wrench to remove the set screw( plug the drain holes do it does not go down the drain)

turn the water off (hot and cold ) under the sink
remove the set screw and lift off the lever

at his point you can take an adjustible wrench(channel lock and tighten the big ring nut that holds the cartridge in place

temorairly put the handle back on and put the handle in the off position turn the water on under the sink and see if it stopped leaking

if it still leaks you have to turn the water back off and remove the lock nut then the cartridge and go to big box store with old cartridge and name of mfg and get a new one and install

If you have seperate hot and cold valves on top of sink deermne which is leaking by turning one off with oher on undr the sink

once you have determined which it is (hot or cold)
take a phillips head screw driver( remove plastic clear cap on top of faucet handle with sharp crewdriver of knife blade) and remove the screw holdin the handle on to the stem(turn counter clock wise

be sure to turn water of under snk on both faucet risers after removing acrylic handle you then take an adjustible wrench and remove the crown nut turn counter clockwise until it comes off over stem

remove stem( looks like size of a pretzel about six inches long with washers on side and one on end

take the stem to local hardware(ace) or big box store and go to lumbing section ask clerk to inspect and recommend replacement washers or replacement stem (if needed)

go back reinstall and tighten crown nut snug( open (turn counter clockwise) tem valve before you snug it down with crown nut
install acrykic or chrome handle with brass phillips screw then ut cap on and turn on water and check for leaks

good luck

Bathroom sink ''mixer tap'' leaking internaly.


if your valve is single handle there is usually a small
button type of cover for (sometimes rubber the size of a pencil erasure) that covers acces to a hex key screw that you have to remove to remove the handle

once you have removed the handle you will need a large adjustable wrench to turn a large nut that holds the cartridege tighten if still leaks remove and replace you can math the assembly at HD or Lowes
