You might look to see if you have a checkvalve or an "RPZ" valve on your main water service into building . If you do you might need an expansion tank, if you have an expansion tank have it tested to see if it is defective.
The faucet might have a manufactured defect that is making it leak.

Hope this helps.

My husband just replaced a bathroom faucet yesterday and it is dripping. did we do something wrong? and what should we do? Thanks It is a moen faucet.


If this is a brand new faucet and hubby hasn't taken it apart i would take it back where I bought it. It should not be dripping at all. Just installing it I can't see where he could have done anything that would make it drip from the faucet unless the drip is from a fitting he didn't get tight enough somewhere. If the drip is at the spout take it back and get a new one they are gauranteed and the place you bought it should replace it for you no problem.

We have a Moen 87315C kitchen faucet and it is dripping from the sprayer portion of the faucet, what's the problem?


If it's leaking at sprayer, and not the base where connected to hose, try this. Buy a bottle or jug of CLR. (calcium, lime, rust ) from hardware store, and pour enough in a bowl that will submerse sprayer in it. When you go to bed, or out for a few hours, turn off both taps (obviously) and relieve all pressure as well from sprayer. Now wrap an elastic around the handle of the sprayer so that lever is depressed, and submerse it in the bowl of CLR, and let it work overnight or at least for a few hours. Next Day, or Later, remove elastic from sprayer, and try it a few times and see if leak has stopped. Quite often you get calcium build up on internal washer/seal, and this will clean it off. If no CLR, you can try vinegar as well, but I find CLR better. If it appears better but not stopped completely, give it another treatment.
