To turn faucet handles off

Where I live, the bathroom fixtures are old. The tub and sink both drip often. Would there be anyway to get the handles tighter to stop the dripping. I don't have that much hand strength. Just want to slow down the dripping if possible. Thought of using some kind of tool, but that may cause damage.

Leaky kitchen faucet


What kind of faucet? (single handle, double hndle, kitchen, bathroom) Where is it dripping from? (handle, aerator or faucet head, under the sink) There are many types of faucets and many types of leaks. Sorry to be so vague but there's a pretty wide spectrum of possibilities, a little more info will go long way.

Delta 2555-216 Victorian Double-Handle Centerset Lavatory Faucet with Metal I have a slow drip in bathroom sink and do not know how to remove the stem to get at the washer in the Victorian listed above.


If you notice right below the handle,there should be a small opening where ,by using an allen wrench you should be able to remove handle giving access to the stem retaining nut ......CAUTION... be sure cutoff valve is turned off(both hot and cold cutoffs.... under lavatory sink before removing..........unscrew retaining nut and remove stem.....hope that helps......

Severely reduced water pressure from lavatory faucet


Take the strainer off the spout and check to see if there is any dirt or rust buildup in the strainer. This happens when repairs have been done. It usually collects at the first place the water comes out of.

Delta faucet is loose ;moves right-left/wobbles. Tightening?


Try tightening the allen set screw behind the spout "you need a special (allen keys) to do this, and one should have came with your faucet". You can also buy or borrow an set of them.

Grohe Bathroom Faucet


If you don,t see any set screw for the handle, ( sometimes it is hidden under a small access cover top of the handle) Then the handle is threaded on where the base of the handle meets the sink/countertop surface. It is a right hand thread and will take a few turn before it comes off accessing the faucet stem.

Good Luck, Phil
