SOURCE: How do I, myself, fix a faucet leak?

Faucets in general operate either with a one handle valve stem or valve stems that uses small pieces of rubber to precent the water flow. In a single handle model this is usually caused by mineral deposits building up and the valve not being able to fully restrict the flow of water. The fix here is usually a new stem. On models that use a two handle system and do have replaceable valve stems one must get a repacement seat from a hadware store and reinstall the stem. In extreme cases the valve body may need to be ground internally and will require a professional. If you do not a have replaceable stems than the only alternative is a new faucet. I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya.

The stem and washers inside the faucet need to be replaced.

If you Do it yourself the parts typically will cost you less than 20 bucks.

Most plumbers will charge 75 to 100 for this relatively simple Job.

You can order parts directly from the manufacturer, or from a local plumbing supply house.

Repla ing the washers on a Delta faucet


First turn off water to faucet. There will either be a set screw or a screw under the cap depending on the style. Once handle is removed there is the bonnet, crescent wrench or channel locks will do the trick. With bonnet off you should be able to remove the white cap and steel ball revealing the spring and boot. That's what you replace. Reverse the order to put back together. And there you have it.

I have a brand new Axor Starck X 1007001 that is leaking from the bottom of the control lever. Is there an adjustment that needs to be made or is the faucet defective?


There are two possible causes for this. It could be the cartridge leaking around the top or it could have a damaged or missing o-ring between the spout and top of the faucet. Either of these could cause a leak to show only when the faucet is run. If you contact Hansgrohe Technical we can get you the parts to repair the faucet or you can send it in and we can repair it for you. 1-800-334-0455. press 2 for Tech and ask for David Scarborough. I'd be happy to help.

I have a kitchen faucet that is leaking at the base where the faucet connects to the base. It leaks all the time. Do I need to replace the O rings in the stem of the faucet? Or do I need to replace all...


hi! if tightening the knob(s), (or if you apply pressure on the knob of the faucet,for the models with no thread for open/close), modify the amount of water leaking ,you need to replace the seats in the faucet. if not ,just replacing the o rings should fix your problem.

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

Why do my faucets leak when I turn my sprinklers on?


THERE TWO CAUSES THAT I KNOW OF: 1. YOUR FAUCETS ARE PRESSURE SEALING MEANING: THEY NEED A MINIMUM PRESSURE TO SEAL MOST LIKELY 25psi, YOUR SPRINKLER SYSTEM IS STARVING THE ENTIRE SYSTEM OF PRESSURE WHICH ALLOWS YOUR FAUCETS TO LOOSE THEIR SEAL. SOLUTION:REPLACE FAUCETS WITH SPRING SEAT SEALING FAUCETS. 2. YOU HAVE A WATER LEAK IN YOUR MAIN WATER LINE AND THE FAUCETS ARE LEAKING AIR BACK INTO THE MAIN LINE WHEN THE SPRINKLERS ARE OFF AND WATER INTO THE SINK WHEN THE SPRINKLERS ARE ON... THIS SCENARIO IS UNLIKELY AND YOU WOULD HAVE OTHER PROBLEMS SUCH AS AIR IN THE LINES AND THE FAUCETS WOULD LEAK WHEN YOU TURNED ON THE SHOWER AS WELL AS THE SPRINKLER SYSTEM.
