Using a parts breakdown picture, disassembe of the valve carefully @ the stem by removing the handle then the bonnet with the seals. Check, with a magnifying lens, the condition of the valve seats. There could be some particles or some damage to the surfaces that touch each other. Sometimes a 300 grit sandpaper rotated around those parts remove slight problems. Usually changing the stem (part that turns) or the seat (part that it tightens against) is the cost effective approach. Put it back together cleaned and carefully. Plumbing stores and most large hardware stores have this. Bring the parts with you for a pewrfect match.

My k-12265 lavatory faucet hot side is dripping from the spout


You probably have a faulty seal in the valve. You will need to take apart the faucet and determine what seal is bad. Contact the manufacturer or a local hardware store to see if they have a replacement valve cartrige for your faucet or individual parts.

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.

New Faucet drips for several seconds after it is


some of these new faucets are "soft off" which means the will drip or run for a second or 2 before the water stops. I know this can be annoying, but it is how some of them are made

My Faucet started dripping. I have installed two


Be sure you have the right kit for your faucet. I think there are two types of springs. I usually leave the ball adjustment loose, and tighten the cap. Then I use that little spanner wrench to tighten the ball. Have you used the little wrench to tighten?

Faucet installed 9/94 and still looks like new. But in past few days have begun seeing slow drip running down from one of the inner metal flexible hoses when faucet is on and for maybe 5-10 min after water...


Try tighten the hoses, if this don't work the seal in hose connectors may need replaced, very simple and cheap to replace. over time the hot water will wear down the seal it will go bad with pressure and water period. It's a good thing to change these all while you are there.

DRIPPING OLD BEVERAGE AIR FAUCET


New faucets are easily had from many places like beveragefactory.com, northerbrewer.com, austinhomebrew.com, micromatic.com, etc. You should also be able to find replacement washers/o-rings for your current faucet, but it may require an email or phone call to one of the sales reps to locate one. If you decide on a new faucet consider a Ventmatic (Shirron) forward sealing faucet. Much better design that drips less and doesn't stick after sitting a few days. The only issue I've seen is that the machined grooves in back of the faucet may not mate up with your current shank requiring a machined (as opposed to cast) shank to match.
