Leaking at base of spigot

Only leaks when water is on.

    When water is turned on, hot or cold, water comes out along the base. How do you take it apart so the washer can be replaced?

    As someone suggested earlier, the leaking is probably caused by bad o-ring or packing, but the answer was not complete. The home-grown plumber isn't going to want to unnecessarily scratch up the finish. A better answer would be to explain how to get to the o-ring or packing without damaging the surface.

Center Leak Spigot Spicket


Once upon a time, you could cure this problem by turning off the water, applying a wrench across the flats shown in your video right below where you removed the handle, and unscrewing the stem. Then you could check the condition of the washer before winding string-like packing around the coarse theads of the stem and reinstalling. The water supply could be turned on again and the problem would be solved. That was then... Today it is doubtful that your local hardware emporium even knows what stem packing is, let alone stocks it. Anyway, it's worth a try

Solaris Model #06544860 leaking under the sink. How do I remove and how do I figure out exactly what is leaking?


The first thing I would do is to locate source of the leak. Look carefully at faucet when it is on and see if you have any water leaking from areator and running back down the underside of spout and leaking around base of faucet, also see if you have any leaks around handle. If the leak is from the areator you can just replace it and not have to remove the faucet. when you check under sink on faucet supply lines make sure they aren't leaking at that point. I would use paper towels or rags to wipe everything dry under faucet and let it set for 1/2 hour then check again. If it.s still dry run some water and use both hot and cold water seperatly,checking underside in between. If you determine that leak is coming from top side and leaking thru. Shut off water supply valves if available if not shut off supply to house, make sure water is off before proceeding. Disconnect supply lines from faucet,Remove retaing nuts on either side of base,and remove washers. Remove faucet and check for any obvious faults. If you think it was leaking around base get a small tub of plumbers putty. Most hardware stores stock it. Remove a golf ball sized portion or larger and knead in your hands until it is warm and pliable. Press into place in faucet base. Continue doing this until it's full. Reinstall plastic or rubber base gasket and put faucet back in place Put washers and retaing nuts back on a tighten till snug. Center faucet where you want it and tighten securely. Scrape off excess putty with knife point and wipe with paper towels till clean. Hook up supply lines and turn water back on. Check for leaks and good luck. Thank you

Moen two-handle kitchen faucet, 1990's model installed new a few years ago, is leaking underneath at the center where the spray hose would connect. I didn't use the hose, though. The nut was tight. It...


The nuts used for capping off the sprayer attachment will bottom out and not seal. Unless there is tape or thread compound on the nut, it can spray a tiny jet up under the faucet when the faucet is activated. If there is clearly water leaking from above that, then the o ring for the spigot may be failing and need replacing. If this is the case, it will only leak when the faucet is activated. There is always the possibility of a crack in the casting of the faucet body; hope not:)

How do you fix a leaking outdoor wall spigot? Even though the handle is turned tightly off there remains a drip. Spigot seems to be all one piece and attached into stucco wall. Is there a way to repair...


Sometimes, depending on the type of the spigot, you can unscrew the valve from inside the spigot. There would be a hex nut immediately under the part where the handle on the valve stem comes out. BE CAREFUL: Outside spigots rarely have independent shut-offs (ie, in order to work on it, you will have to shut off the main water supply). Once you start down this path, you need to be fairly certain there is a replacement available for your type of spigot. If you remove the valve, there is no assurance that you will be able to get the original back in without making the leak worse. Please have an emergency back-up plan in place.
