Leaking Jado lavatory faucet

The hot water faucet leaks from the deck valve bell when turned on. I removed the faucet handle and can see the top of the cartridge. Is the cartridge the problem? If so, how do I remove it? Where should I purchase a replacement?

It is a rubber gasket that is leaking, Pull the cartridge with a cresent wrench. There will be a paking nut on the top of the cartridge where the handle connects. You should be able to remove this with a pair of pliers. There will be a rubber o-ring inside. Take that to the hardware to to find a replacement to it. It wont be hard to match they keep tons in stock at ace or lowes

My Delta 2578-278 faucet is leaking, when it is completely shut off. What is part is most likely the problem ? Thanks Joe


Check outside water pressure to house. Should be 65 - 75 PSI. If good most likely the cartridge. Older faucet, do both sides to prevent future problems. Blade handles? Make sure you get Hot & Cold stems, they turn the opposite way with blade handles. Some cartridges are universal and can be adjusted to work either way. After removing the stem, check with a flashlight in the valve, delta has rubber seats and springs on many of their models. If so, replacement of the rubber seats may do the trick.

Many of these problems develop from poor maintenance on water heaters and high pressure. Water heaters, regulators, safety valves, supply lines, and emergency shut off valves at fixtures should be checked, cleaned and adjusted on an annual basis. Your local expert plumbing contractor should be able to assist you on that.

HELLO THE FAUCET DRIPS AT THE HANDLE AND THE HOT AND COLD SEEM REVERSED


On this valve the hot/cold in reverse is easy enough to fix, but the faucet dripping at the handle is another issue. To reverse the hot and cold, turn off the house water, relieve the pressure by opening a nearby faucet. Once the water stops, remove the handle and faucet cover so you can see the valve. then the four screws that are visible need to be removed. Mark one of the screw holes with a crayon or pencil and then remove by pulling straight out. Once out, inspect the main o-ring right behind where it sits against the valve, (if this is damaged, it might be why the handle area is leaking) then turn the whole assembly clockwise 180 degrees then insert straight back in and insert screws. Tighten screws until snug. Turn water back on before installing cover and handle to check for leaks. If no leaks are found, install cover and handle and check for proper position of hot and cold. If there are leaks, tighten screws in clockwise rotation tightening each screw a quarter turn, then moving to the next one until dripping stops. If dripping is from center of stem, where the handle attaches, you will need to contact Price Pfister to request a replacement. They are very good to work with. Good luck.

Water leaking at handle when turned on


1- Hanldle may have a cap that will come off to access screw to loosen or allen screw on the handle to remove it.
First thing you can check remove handle and make sure the nut that holds stem down is not loose. You can tighten it and try this first just replace handle turn on and check for leaks.

If not please go to step 2 in removal of stem

2- Cut water off and remove handle to gain access to stem. Next remove stem by untighting nut at the base. Remove stem and replace o rings on stem about middle of it. That will stop water from leaking at the base.

My wife turned on the hot water facute in the kitchen when she went to turn it off i will not turn off i took off the knob the nut was a little loose tightened it up still leaks is there a way to repair...


Turn the water off at the shut under the sink and open both faucets to drain line. Remove faucet handle and stem and look inside. There's probably something jamming the stem from turning. Remove that and reassemble.

Leaking Delta kitchen faucet dual handle


Pry the hot/cold button off the top of the handle. Make sure the water is turned off below the sink.

Under the button should be screws. Remove the screws. Pry the handle off. Remove the stems by lifting then out.

That should give you access to the washers you need to change.
