SOURCE: I have a moen pull out kitchen faucet that leaks

You have a bad internal o-ring or the sprayer o-ring is leaking, if you look under the sink turn it off and then turn it back on, if you see it leaking out the center shft where the water pipes go into then the faucet may have a broken pipe or loose pipe. check and tell me where it's leaking at. You can buy kits to repiar them they are inexpensive.

Replace the "O" rings that are behind the spout portion. You will have to remove the top of the faucet and pull up on the spout section. There will be a couple of "O" rings there. It is best to have Moen send the parts to you as locating the proper size "O" rings can be difficult.

I think American Standard probably is correct, especially if there is a history of swivel faucets seizing over time.

My kitchen faucet is loss from the bottom and it seems it can not be tightened. The water facet water valves seem to be in the way.


Tightening the nut on a faucet is tough to do in the tight space you have to work with. The proper tool to use is called a 'basin wrench' and is not too expensive. It has a swivel head to let you get it up to the nut and turn it from below. Here's a picture:
