Delta 400-DST Single Handle Kitchen Faucet Spigot Drips


I've installed quite a few of these from the big box stores that leak. There are 2 rubber pieces inside the valve body that act as seats. The seats are what turn the water on and off as you move the handle. These rubbers need to be replaced. You can buy a delta repair kit, which will contain these parts. Where the faucet is new, it might be easier to bring it back

Moen single handle faucet, when turning off the water it drips on the cold side


Sephie,

You have a very common problem. The short answer is you need to replace the Cartridge, which is Moen part # 1225.

I have seen that so many times with that particular faucet... I'm not a big fan of Moen in general-- but that aside.... That Faucet is one of their "economy" lines and has a long history of giving trouble. I would suggest to you that the best solution would be to replace the faucet with a nice quality Delta, or equivelant-- Delta style and those that use the same parts such as many Peerless and others ARE VERY SIMPLE TO SERVICE, and the PARTS ARE PRETTY CHEAP AND ALWAYS AVAILABLE at Lowe's or Home Depot. Moen cartridges are expensive and can be hard to find the exact match as there are many models that look almost identical. You can get the part free from Moen, but that takes time and can be a hassel.

Hope this helps, Let me know if you have further questions! Good Luck!

My Delta 2578-278 faucet is leaking, when it is completely shut off. What is part is most likely the problem ? Thanks Joe


Check outside water pressure to house. Should be 65 - 75 PSI. If good most likely the cartridge. Older faucet, do both sides to prevent future problems. Blade handles? Make sure you get Hot & Cold stems, they turn the opposite way with blade handles. Some cartridges are universal and can be adjusted to work either way. After removing the stem, check with a flashlight in the valve, delta has rubber seats and springs on many of their models. If so, replacement of the rubber seats may do the trick.

Many of these problems develop from poor maintenance on water heaters and high pressure. Water heaters, regulators, safety valves, supply lines, and emergency shut off valves at fixtures should be checked, cleaned and adjusted on an annual basis. Your local expert plumbing contractor should be able to assist you on that.

The cartridge should have pins that create proper alignment with the supply lines. New single handle faucets have limiters that allow you to control the amount of hot water. Check the limiter position. Its also possible that the cartridge is clogged with debris. Modern low flow plumbing appliances reduce flow by reducing the water passages inside the unit. Therefore they are more easily clogged.

I have a Delta Tub/Spout Pull Down Diverter that has a pretty persistent drip. The HOT and COLD handles are turned off and seem to be as tight as they can be. After doing some research online I believe...


If your Delta RP17453 Pull-Down Diverter Tub Spout stops dripping after 5 minutes, your ok. If it never stops dripping, you need to replace delta faucet cartridge(s) behind the handle(s). This is were the water turns on and off and stops the water flow to the tub spout.

Delta faucets are some of the easiest to repair, and parts are usually available at any hardware store or home center. If you have a two handle faucet, replace both delta seats and springs and stems. If you have a single handle Delta faucet, replace the entire cartridge.

We have a Delta 172 single handle faucet. We had our hot water heater replaced. Now it takes longer for hot water to get to the faucet. Could debris (calcium build up, etc.) from the replacement get in...


Yes, debris from water heater replacements often breaks lose and gets stuck. The problem could potentially be anywhere between water heater and the faucet. The faucets shut off valves or the Delta faucet cartridge itself. Turn the hot and cold water valves off under the sink and disconnect the water supply lines from the faucet. aim the water supply lines into a bucket and turn the valves on one at a time. If there is a significant reduction in the water pressure and volume on the hot water side, you need to replace the shut off valve. If there is no reduction in water pressure, you need to clean and/or replace the Delta faucet cartridge. Contact Delta to receive free replacement parts.

I have a two-handle Delta faucet that drips.  With both handles turned completely to off, the faucet drips at a about 1 drip every 15 seconds


sounds like you need to replace the valve seats. if you shut the water off and remove the handles you will see the valves. you have to remove them and under that you should see these little black things. they come out but have springs under them so be careful. the black things are the valve seats. i would start by replacing them
