Question about B&K Plumbing

Open Question

I have a b&k (mueller maybe) tub faucet that is leaking in the wall (slow drip) and I want to replace the seals and springs and ball inside...(does any other brand of repair parts also work for this brand of faucet? I have a lowes store nearby but do not see the b&k brand repair parts. It is a single lever faucet and is leaking just behind the collar which is behind the screw on chrome dome.

SOURCE: my price pfister tub valve leaks

there is an o-ring inside the valve that seals. It has failed. They should sell a rebuild kit where you bought it, or dis-assemble, and take the failed oring in to have it matched to a new one.

You may want to disassymble the faucet again and check for any debris that could have gotten into the faucet when you were changing the cartridge. Also remove the seats at the back of the housing and reexamine for bad seals. Sometimes it takes a second install for it to stop. Something isn't seating properly plus, it could be a bad new cartridge.

SOURCE: kohler shower diverter leaks (behind the wall)

if you have a closet behind the shower or a wall you may be able to get to the diverter without damage to the tile ,are you sure you can't just change the cartridge? most times this is all that is needed to fix a problem like yours.

How do i stop a slow drip in a tub faucet?


A drip is caused by seepage from the water supply. Remember the water supply enters your home under pressure, so there must be a watertight seal holding back the incoming water when the faucet handle is in the OFF position. That seal is usually created by a washer pressed tightly against the faucet seat. Obviously, when the washer or the seat is not functioning properly, a little water can seep through and drip out of the faucet spout. To stop the drip, all you usually have to do is replace the washer or repair the seat.

HOW DO I INSTALL A SEAL KIT


A metal ball controls the temperature and flow of water from the spout in the vast majority of Delta single-lever faucets. That ball rests on three rubber seals, each seal suspending the ball with a single spring. Over time, wear on the seals, the springs and even the ball itself typically results in leaks. Thankfully, repairing the faucet is relatively simple, and Delta even makes repair kits with the replacement parts needed for each model.


Turn off the valve that controls the main water supply. The valve is located next to the water meter, inside or outside the house, and must be twisted in a clockwise direction.

Remove the plastic cap from the center of the faucet's handle by prying the cap free with the blade of a dull knife or a flat-head screwdriver, then remove the screw in the center of the faucet handle with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Pull the handle off the faucet assembly to remove it

  • Remove the single bonnet nut that surrounds the faucet valve with an adjustable wrench. Grip the bonnet nut at the base, which is ribbed to give the wrench a surface to grasp, and turn in a counterclockwise direction to remove it.

  • Remove the circular, white plastic cam that surrounds the top of the faucet, pulling it off and revealing a rubber seal, which you also remove. Next, pull the metal ball out of the faucet assembly and pry out the ball's supporting rubber seals and their springs with a screwdriver (the springs slide onto the bottom of each seal, so they will come out along with the seals).

  • Slide one replacement spring onto each of the three replacement seals that come with the Delta repair kit for your faucet model, then insert each seal into the assembly. Insert the replacement ball from the repair kit, then cap it by putting the replacement rubber seal over the ball, followed by the plastic cam

  • Place the bonnet nut over the faucet valve, then tighten the nut with an adjustable wrench. Position the handle onto the end of the faucet, then insert a screw into the center of the handle, tighten it with a Phillips-head screwdriver and, finally, press the decorative plastic cap over the screw.

  • Turn on the valve that controls the main water supply by twisting the valve in a counterclockwise direction to complete the repair

    I hope this will help please go to this web site for a downloadable parts link. If it is leaking from the spout replace the seats and springs to correct the problem. Turn water off and remove handle with a 1/8" allen wrench and remove retaining collar to access the ball assembly to remove the seats and springs.

    The parts page on this link will give you a break down and hope this will help.

    Will need to get delta faucet rebuild kit. Available at home depot, lowes or hardware store. It consists of valve stem seals & springs. The larger kit will contain ball assembly. Turn off water to faucet. Unscrew handle via set screw under plastic cap. Unthread cap over ball assembly. Pry out valve seals & springs. Reverse procedure to install.

    My Delta Faucet Leaks


    Check that we were looking at same parts diagram, but I would say RP-70 Ball assy., as well as RP-4993 Seats & springs . If it's only dripping, just seats and spring will usually get you by, but if they are sending parts, free of charge, or ball assy., isn't too expensive, I'd change it too. I have had some luck with removing ball assy, cleaning it well with fine steel wool, then removing seals, and springs, stretching spring slightly, to add more pressure to seal, clean seal, then dab on a little vaseline to seals, and re-assemble.

    Leaking shower faucet


    I do believe that Delta guarantees their faucets for life. Go online to get the 800 number and call them, have the model number ready. They actually sent my girlfriend a replacement for her $300 kitchen faucet and also the guts to 2 bathroom faucets. They come with diagrams also. Of course I had to install them, but they stand behind their stuff.
