SOURCE: Leaking Kitchen Tap

yes your right it's the seal inside and it can be replaced you should shut the water off after all why make a mess when you don't have to. however I'm not familiar with this typ of faucet. you more than likely be able to get help from your local area hardware store when you purchase your gasket for replacement.

SOURCE: leaking single lever kitchen tap

on most of the single handle faucets there is an erasure like button ( may have a hot and cold blue and red indicator or be silver ) usually located right under the faucet arm on the manifold chrome sleeve or back behind the arm or it could have a large ring nut over the doam of the lever take your hand and feel the area that covers the area where the spout arm swivels and feel for the button or take your fingers and fel the to of the lever doam

if you find the button just take a sharp screw driver( be sure to plug the drain holes and turn hot and cold water off under sink) pry the button off and use a hex wrench and loosten

if no button then there has to be a large nut on top you may seee two grooves oppsoite each other wheich would mean a special tool

use an adjustable wrench (put cloth ofer chrome to protect and turn counter clock wise( the ring nut will not be very thick

after removing you should be able to replace the cartridge

good luck

SOURCE: Hi! My hot water taps from the wash hand basin and

In a word no. Combi boilers work on balanced the mains cold supply to the boiler should be around 1 bar minimum which would give a hot water pressure of the same 1 bar. Assuming the cold water pressure is fine, it sounds like you have a restricted flow on the hot side. If you live in an area with water problems the hot water systems pipework calcify over time effectively reducing water flow. Unless any flexi hoses are kinked, check if there are any filters in the appliances that may be blocked.Also check all valves are fully open and if possible check if there are any restrictions at the valves. Failing all that and the taps are in good order it is possible to fit a pump before the boiler but this may only be a temporary fix overall.

Model# 57874

Copy following links to identify timer manual and general wiring illustration:
Do not connect voltage directly to COM and Pump terminals... these terminals have their own 24Volt AC output when timer turns ON. When timer turns on, the 24V flows to Relay. This action will cause electro-magnet to pull two points together, and that will turn on the pump.
Same with the sensor terminals. Do not connect power to rain sensor terminals. The rain sensor plugs into outlet, and produces it's own 24V ac output. So when rain sensor activates, this cuts power to timer, and then timer will automatically bypass the watering schedule until rain sensor again resumes power output to timer.

Mod 57880 am setting ok pm setting wont come on ?

Is this new timer?
Or timer that worked before and stopped working?

Check outlet with circuit analyzer for correct polarity and grounding.
Reset timer and re-program, being careful to avoid conflicts and/or overlaps. Each ON time must also have OFF time with consistent days for each. If selected time is 12:00, then use 11:59 instead to avoid possible problems with am and pm conflict.
product comes with 1 year limited warranty.

Orbit digital 57880 sprinkler timer manual is 19 pages long, which is good argument for using analog timers with 1 page manual.
Troubleshoot appears on page 18 of manual, and includes Tech service number.

Hardwire the orbit outdoor sprinkler timer

Reset the timer? This will sometimes resolve many problems.

Are you sure the conduit has 120Volt? Is the timer connected to single breaker?
Or is circuit 240V? Timer connected to double breaker.

What do you mean green wire to negative?

What else is on the conduit circuit?
Motors, fluorescent lights, and other electronics can interfere with electronic timers.
Run extension cord to timer from another electrical source and see if problem continues.

Re-post question with model number so timer-electricity expert can read the troubleshoot section of manual.

Installed 8 low voltage lights with a malibu digital 120w timer 2 months ago. The timer does not always work. I'll unplug then power up the system and then the lights turn on. Never had this problem...

Timer is not identified:
Open following link to see low-voltage digital timers and then add a comment if needed:
Page also has links to warranty information, and list of advisories so power pack lasts longer.

There are 2 likely suspects: Bad timer, or electrical problem.
There is no repair for bad timer, but timer has warranty through the manufacturer/ Malibu.
Electrical: Since power pack worked correctly before, then outlet probably has correct polarity, but I always suggest checking outlet with circuit analyzer.
Also plug lamp into same outlet and see if there is flickering that would indicate loose wire. Wiggle circuit breaker and see if lamp flickers. Move the outlet and see if lamp flickers.
Outdoor outlets get loose wires because of exposure to temperature and dust and moisture. Replace outlet and don't use the quick connects, instead use screw terminals.
If possible, move timer to different outlet on different breaker and see if problem persists.

I have an orbit 4 station indoor timer. I understand where the solenoid wires go but am a bit confused as to where th pump wires go. Are all the common wires connected to gether and then go into the timer...

Timer is not identified.
Orbit shows five different 4-station timers: Add a comment and say which timer is being used, and what voltage you are using and what wires you have.

Example below:
-Power to operate timer:
The example timer has power cord that plugs into outlet.
Other timers have low voltage transformer that plugs into outlet.

Connecting solenoids.
Each station or solenoid has two wires:
The common wires are connected together so that common connects to each solenoid, and the second wire connects to terminals 1 2 3 4 as shown.

I have a orbit 57880. this is the first time I have set it and it didnt work, Im sure its me. is there a technical help no I can call so when im in front of the box I can call someone. the number on the...

1) You can use Fixya live phone support.
Keep in mind, there is no repair for busted timers.
Aquaman is irrigation contractor:

2) Fixya has a few solutions posted that may or may not apply to your situation:

3) You can have interactive conversation with me over the internet by adding a comment, and that sends email and I will respond.
I am electrician, and timer expert. I test timers, and 5-7% arrive defective.
I am not 100% informed about this timer and have not tested it.
The first baseline for any troubleshoot is to check electrical outlet with circuit analyzer. This will say if outlet is wired and grounded correctly. Buy circuit analyzer at hardware outlet.
Next thing is to connect timer to different outlet.
If circuit has florescent lights, then unplug or turn off florescent lights to see if problem clears up.
Next thing is to review troubleshoot page 18 in manual:
The on-line manual can be word-searched, and has page number that we can both refer to when discussing the timer.
Next thing is to write out the steps. It sounds ridiculous, since the manual has the steps. But when manuals get confusing for me, I write out the steps until they are clear.
Another thing to watch for is conflicting programs: write out the programs before starting.

Please do the above mentioned things, then add a comment so we can get started.
