Remove it and make sure that the cup washer and spring are seated propoperly. The large end of the cone shaped spring sits on the bottom of the housing seat and cone washer slips over the small end of the spring. Use the shank of small screwdriver to guide the washer and spring by placing them on the shake in the proper order and then putting the shank into the housaing and sliding the washer and spring.
You may also have to disconnect the supply tube that connects to the faucet under your sink. This is to relieve the pressure within the valve housing which can cause the washer to become mis-aligned when installing the cartridge
. Also check cartridge for defects and make sure you have it install in the correct position i.e you may have to remove it rotate it 180 degrees re-install it and move the limit stop (if it has one, depends on year) inserted in the top to the correct side for propoer operation direction of the handle after you reverse it.
Hope this helps, sincerly T. Wood, C&F Enterprises, A Plumbing Contractor

Dripping bath faucet circa 1985. Can't ID model but appears to have 2 screws holding front of casting to main body for disassembly . Faceplate is square in shape and black in color HELP!

  • 1 Close the hot and cold water valves in the cabinet beneath the sink to shut the water supply off to the bath faucet.
  • 2 Remove the bath faucet's handle to access the valve cartridge. The faucet handle is removed by first detaching the handle's insert cap using the tip of a screwdriver or utility knife to expose the handle screw. Remove the handle screw with a Phillips screwdriver, then pull the handle off the valve cartridge stem.
  • 3 Loosen and remove the cartridge valve nut with an adjustable wrench. Some faucet models retain the valve cartridge with a snap ring and are removed with snap ring pliers.
  • 4 Pull the old valve cartridge out of the bath faucet base, using pliers.
  • 5 Insert the new replacement valve cartridge into the faucet housing and replace the nut or snap ring removed in Step 3, using an adjustable wrench or snap ring pliers.
  • 6 Reinstall the faucet's handle onto the valve cartridge post, then secure the handle's screw, using a screwdriver.
  • 7 Replace the insert cap into the handle to cover the handle's screw hole.
  • 8 Turn on the hot and cold water valves beneath the sink to restore the water supply.

    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.

    How do I replace the spring and rubber seal

    First turn water off to faucet and remove the screw that hold's the handle in place. They may have a cap on the handle to remove to access the screw.
    After screw is out the handle should come off you may have to wiggle it a little to get it to come loose. Next you will have access to the spring and washer for that stem.
    It should be located on the bottom of the stem just remove it and replace new ones back in place.
    Some have sping's and seat in the body of the faucet if not located on the bottom of the stem.

    How to replace all the valves hot ,cold , diverter

    If you don't really want to tear into the finished tile, you could repair this units most likely. You will have to shut off the water in the house. Remove all handles. Loosen large nut assembly and unscrew the valve stem. If you remove the valve stems you can purchase the complete assembly at a full service plumbing supply co. If the seats are not removeable, a reseating tool is inexpensive. Replacement knobs are available if they are unsightly. The replacement will require removing tile, drywall, cutting or de-soldering piping. Purchase a new valve and follow directions to install. Home depot sell Price Pfister faucets.

    My bathroom faucet wont turn off. I can turn the handle but the water still comes out. the faucet has 2 handles

    Hi, W/D here.
    You'll need to shut the water off under the sink. Usually when the water won't shut off, the washer (or cartridge) is damaged or loose. With the water shut off, open the valve. Remove the handle and trim piece that surrounds the stem. With a wrench or socket, remove the valve cartridge from the body. The part that you need to unscrew isn't the first nut that you see when you look down the shaft, but rather, the ut just past that. The first nut is the packing gland adjustment, the second holds the two halves of the valve together. Usually, it isn't hard to get these apart. Pull the part out of the valve body and check the washer at the base of the stem. It is probably loose. Tighten it back down, or if it is damaged, replace it. While the valve is apart, stick your little finger in the valve hole and feel the valve seat. It should feel smooth and free of nicks and grooves. Should you need any parts, you can take your old parts with you when you go to the hardware store, and match them up. If the seat is damaged, you may need a 'seat removal tool' also available at the hardware store. A washer is the easiest repair. If the damage is much worse that thet, consider a repair kit. I will have the upper valve assembly that you pulled out, washer and replacement seat, along with the gaskets.
    Reinstall your valve, making sure that the stem is backed out as if full open. If you put the valve assembly together with the valve stem 'closed', you can damage the washer. Once all back together, adjust your packing gland. It should be adjusted to be just tight enough to keep water from flowing out alongside the valve stem without being difficult to operate. Reassemble the trim, replace the handle. Close the faucet valve and open the water supply valve. That should do it.

    Have a kent r/o system dont know how to hook it up is there any way someone can help

    Make sure that all valves are in the open position.
    Try to recharge the water storage tank. Here are the steps to follow.
    * In General: When any type shut-off valve handle is positioned so that it is parallel or in line with the tubing that enters the valve, valve is OPEN. When handle is turned perpendicular to tubing that enters valve, valve is CLOSED.

    Necessary Supplies:
    1) Tire Gauge marked in 5psi increments (ie 5, 10, 15, 20psi, etc.)
    2) Bicycle tire pump for standard type bike tire valve
    To recharge RO system tank:

    1) Close cold water feed valve (valve located at some point along the cold water line from street plumbing).*
    2) Leaving RO tank valve on, turn tank on side & locate valve stem on bottom side.
    3) Remove stem cap.
    4) Drain all water out of tank through open RO faucet into sink. (Continue to leave RO faucet open throughout procedure)
    5) If current tank pressure is insufficient to empty tank, apply tire pump to valve stem and pump 10 – 15 times. Exit flow will increase and then gradually decrease as pressure equalizes. Do not overcharge internal bladder of tank during this
    6) Repeat step #4 until tank is completely empty. (Tank is empty when additional pumping produces no more water)
    7) At this point, adjust EMPTY tank to exactly 7psi. (Gauge reading midway between 5 & 10psi is sufficient)
    8) Turn off RO faucet.
    9) Replace cap on valve stem and reposition tank in upright position.
    10) Open cold water feed valve.*
    11) System water is useable immediately, however, tank will take 3-4 hrs to completely refill. The Water Super Store: 1-877-335-3339

    There is a thin stream of water coming out from under the shower handle of my washer-type faucet whether the shower is on or off. What is the problem and how can I fix this please?

    Turn off the water, remove the handle, escuchion, and stem.
    Replace all washers/O-rings. If it is a plastic stem, replace the stem.

    The seals are worn, allowing water to pass by.

    On some really old valves, the actual metal walls of the valve eventually get worn, and washer replacement does not completely solve the problem, or last long. In that event, replacing the valve is about the only option.

    How do I, myself, fix a faucet leak?

    Faucets in general operate either with a one handle valve stem or valve stems that uses small pieces of rubber to precent the water flow. In a single handle model this is usually caused by mineral deposits building up and the valve not being able to fully restrict the flow of water. The fix here is usually a new stem. On models that use a two handle system and do have replaceable valve stems one must get a repacement seat from a hadware store and reinstall the stem. In extreme cases the valve body may need to be ground internally and will require a professional. If you do not a have replaceable stems than the only alternative is a new faucet. I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya.
