Check your cartridge and seat if your not sure what they are you can you tube it I'm sure there would be a video explaining how to change them. It is not very difficult.

SOURCE: water pooling at base of delta waterfall faucet spout

I have the same problem. The part that is needed is found with a simple Google search for "Delta Waterfall RP22934 O-Rings"

Simply Slide the collar up at the base of the spout where it swivels.

Gently open the now exposed split plastic retainer so that the tabs near the bottom are pulled from their holes.

Lift the spout off the base to expose the o-rings.

Replace with the new o-rings and apply o-ring grease.

Re-assemble and enjoy a dry sink area.

SOURCE: stiff cold water handle bathroom Hansgrohe

If the handle is hard to turn it is most commonly caused by water deposits in the handle or in the cartridge below. I would try removing the handle to ensure it turns freely when not installed on the faucet. If not you can clean it with CLR to remove the water deposits that are making it difficult to turn. If the handle turns freely when not installed you will need to remove the cartridge and inspect it to ensure it is not broken or damaged in any way. There could be debris in the cartrige that has either made it hard to turn or broken the ceramic disks. Our handles are easily removed by turning the bell shaped ecutcheon below the lever or cross handle. There are not set screws that hold them on. If you need further information feel free to call me at 1-800-334-0455. Press 2 for tech and ask for David Scarborough.

SOURCE: how to take handle off of Grohe Lady Lux Cafe-took screw out-handle is stuck

I soaked the connection between the handle and the valve body in a penetrating oil for several hours and eventually used more force than I hoped to use to remove the handle. Once the handle and end cap (part 09 209) were removed, I could see that the valve assembly (part 46 048) was loose which caused water to leak from the seals (part 46 209) between the valve assembly and faucet body. So I tighted the screws that hold the valve assembly to the faucet body and the leaked stopped.

SOURCE: I have a Hansgrohe kitchen faucet model P-IX

Is this the Axor model with one handle? Of so you need to get a new element - the central piece inside the faucet - from Hansgrohe which costs about $45. It comes with a little repair kit that has very low quality instructions.
You need to use a metric tool #3 to unscrew the little piece in the back of the handle - then the handle comes off. You have to pull it hard to get it off.
The repair kit that comes with the element has a tool to screw off the main collar of the faucet and pull out the old element. The tool is a piece of junk that bends out of shape immediately and doesn't open the collar, and possibly cuts your hand in the process. Somebody at Hansgrohe was too busy having a coffee break to figure out that by the time you repair one of these units, it's probably been in service for several years and has a good deal of corrosion and means you need to good solid tool to unscrew the collar. The tool they send is pathetic. It's actually better, if you can, to use the side of it across the two niches in the back of the collar to make the turn. You may need to give the collar a few whacks with a small hammer to loosen it, but be careful not to hit the visible part of the faucet, is it will dent easily and not look so great after you complete the repair. Once you get the collar out the replacement isn't very hard. I've done this repair twice and am so irritated by the lousy instructions and bad tool that I'll never buy another piece from Hansgrohe.

Leaking faucet


Remove the handles. See if the chrome slip nuts holding the stems in are corroded. If they are, the cartridges may not be fully seated or the o -rings that seal around the cartridges may need to be replaced. If either of these is the case you can tell for sure by turning the stems to the on position with the handles removed and looking for water seeping around the cartridge. If none of the above is the cause then check to see if the aerator (screen on the spout) is loose or corroded sending a light spray back towards the faucet body that looks like a leak. If this is the case remove and clean the aerator, then reinstall it making sure not to cross thread it. If none of the above, replace the faucet. Be sure to call Delta first before replacing because they have a lifetime warranty and you just might get your faucet for free!

How do I fix a leaking hansgrohe solaris bathroom faucet?


If this is a widespread faucet you will need to turn the bell shaped portion of the handle counter clockwise to remove the handle as one unit. Then you will see the hex nut of the cartridge that will unscrew counter clockwise to remove. If this is a single hole unit you will need to loosen the set screw on the handle to remove it and then remove a cover ring to access the cartridge nut. If you need any further assistance feel free to call me at Hansgrohe. 1-800-334-0455 press 2 for Tech and ask for David Scarborough. I'll be happy to help.

Faucet leaks when water is turned on at the spout base. I took the set screw out of the back but can,t remove it to access the orings or seals


better turn off the main line first, screw the ring again putting some extra pressure because usually rings are tighten so hard.you have to replace the base of the faucet.

make sure the hose under the sink, ( the one that goes to the faucet) has not gotten twisted around anything. sounds like it is losing pressure. it takes steady pressure for the stream to maintain that "needle" spray.

I have two leaking bathroom faucets. Hansgrohe 06042. I replaced both faucet valves from Hans part no. 94009000. They BOTH still leak steadily. They worked flawlessly for two years.


where are they leaking from?
if they're leaking from underneath, repace the suply lines [between the valve and faucet]. if if from the faucet itself replace your cartrage[s].

There are "o" rings in the area where it is leaking. You can get them at almost every hardware chain. Clean everything well with scotchbrite ant put silicon grease on before you put it back together.
