Delta T2738 Deck Mount on Jacuzzi Tub. Hot Water side leaking.


With the detailed part number you have, I would just walk into stores like Home Depot or any plumbing store and they will give you the exact parts you need. They are not expensive and a lot of them are standard parts and come in kits.
Good luck.

How to fix a leaky Moen faucet that leaks at the spout ,which is separate from the handle?


These faucets can leak in three different places:

  1. Internally at the valve seat
    You'll see water dripping from the spout. This means the rubber washer is worn or damaged. To replace the washer, remove the decorative cap from the handle. Remove the retaining screw and pull off the handle. Remove the decorative cover, called an escutcheon, if there is one. Unscrew the packing nut counterclockwise. Unscrew the valve stem and remove it. Remove the screw that holds the rubber washer in place. Because these washers come in many shapes and sizes, you'll want to take the old one to the hardware store and buy an exact replacement. Be sure to buy two washers so you'll have one for the other valve. Replace the washer and reassemble the faucet.
  2. Around the handle
    If you see water coming from below the handle, the packing nut is leaking. Older faucets have a string-like graphite packing material wrapped around the stem. Newer faucets use an O-ring. First try tightening the packing nut clockwise... about one-half turn. If this doesn't stop the leak, remove the packing nut and replace the packing or O-ring; then reassemble the faucet. If the valve is using the graphite packing material, it might be a clue that you should shop for a new faucet.

  3. Between a pivoting spout and the body
    The spout might be held in place with a packing nut, similar to the faucet stem, or it might have a nut at the top of the spout. In either case, remove the spout and replace the packing material or the O-ring seal. Then reassemble the faucet.
Single lever faucets also are known as "washerless" faucets. They are easier to repair than compression faucets after you determine what type of faucet you have. There are three types of washerless faucets: ball, ceramic disk and cartridge.
Leaks are evident in two places... dripping from the spout and seeping from around the spout where it joins the body of the faucet.
Leaks from the spout indicate that the ball, disk or cartridge is leaking. To repair, turn off the water to the faucet, then remove the handle. The handles on ball-type faucets are held in place with a setscrew that requires an Allen wrench to loosen. Ceramic disk and cartridge-type handles usually are held in place by a screw hidden beneath a cap.
On ball and ceramic disk-type faucets, remove the ball or disk and replace the seals. You can buy replacement kits for these faucets at the hardware store or home center.
On cartridge-type faucets, remove the spout and pull out the retainer clip that holds the cartridge in place. To remove the cartridge, pull on the cartridge stem with a twisting motion. If it resists, install the handle so you can a better grip on the cartridge to pull it out. Take the cartridge to the hardware store or home center and purchase an exact replacement kit.
Reassemble the faucet according to directions.
Leaks at the spout-to-body joint indicate an O-ring failure. Disassemble the faucet as described above. Remove the spout sleeve and replace the O-rings. It's a good idea to replace these seals if you have the faucet disassembled for repair of the ball, disk or cartridge.

I have an Admiral washing machine...my problem is, is that it wont start...period. I have tried changing the water temperature to see if that effects it, with the door open and closed but it just wont...


Hello,

What you need to do to solve the problem of your whirlpools is to trubleshoot it to resolve the problem your self.
Carefully apply the below instruction to solve the washer problem.

If your bathtub faucet leaks or performs poorly, there areways to troubleshoot the problem. A few common parts are most likely to wearout, so checking these reveals exactly what's wrong with the appliance. Thisrequires no specialized skill, and anyone who knows how to use a wrench willfind this project takes less than an hour. If you have no experience, giveyourself extra time.
1 Turn off the water to the faucet. Take offthe cap on top of the handle and remove the screw under the faucet cap with anAllen wrench. Take the handle off the faucet, pulling it away from the showerwall.
2 Remove the trim sleeve (also called a dome cap or bonnet). Simply turn itcounterclockwise and pull it off the faucet head.
3 Tighten the cartridge nut under the trim sleeve, replace the trim sleeve andhandle, and turn on the water. Test the faucet. Watch to see if the leak orproblem goes away. If not, remove the handle and trim sleeve.
4 Remove the retaining nut entirely. Turn it counterclockwise and pull it offthe faucet. Slide the cartridge out of the faucet and inspect the valve seals.If they're worn, replace the cartridge and reattach the retaining nut. Tightenwith a pliers or wrench.
5 Replace the trim sleeve and handle and turn on the water to test the faucet.
tools needed to carry out the work.

Thanks for uing fixya.

We are getting a constant drip through the faucet when both taps are turned off. please advise solution


Hi mark stopfor...
Sounds like the sealing washers are in need of replacement.
Look under the sink and find the shut off valves to the faucet.
Shut off water, remove handles from faucet, then use a wrench to remove the insert that holds the sealing washers. Replace the washers with new ones that you will have to purchase and reassemble...that should solve your leaking faucets...

Leaky Tub Faucet (Antique Reproduction)


sometimes check the faucet screws they come loose or if they are old you might want to replace the whole diverter, take them to lowes or home depot and have them guys in the plumbing department hook you up. trust me you are opening a can of worms with rubber valve seats just get new ones. Make sure before pulling you cut off water supply to them.

Leaking hotwater from the tap


You have two options. You can either replace the faucets- which is much easier for a novice, or you can rebuild them. As far as removing the handles, double check and make sure there is no set screw. If there is not, then the handles should come off. You may have to gently rock each one from side to side. Once you get the handles off, you should see where the valve unscrews. Now would be a good time to turn off the main water going to the tub. Once that is done carefully unscrew the valves and remove them. Take this to Lowes or Home Depot and you should be able to find repacking kits. They usually have full installation instructions included.
