I am guessing that the vent cover you are refering to is the vacuum breaker cap on the top of the faucet. The vacuum breaker is there to prevent water from being sucked back into the system. If that is what you are refering to then yes they do make parts for them, but you will need to know the manufacturers name and possibly the model, then start calling or surfing around. Hope this helps.

Water leaks between the pull down spout and the bathroom tile


It sounds like your spout supply nipple has sprung a leak. There isn't much of any other way water can flow between your spout and tile wall. It's pretty important that you don't use the fixture until the problem is fixed. Because the water coming out that you see is also probably flowing into the wall and causing water damage and MOLD. You need to remove the spout and replace the nipple that is supplying the water to the spout. There could be a defect in your spout too, but likelihood of that is less than your nipple threads giving in to some electrolysis from the bronze/copper in the spout or somewhere in your water system. To prevent it from occurring again, use a brass nipple to replace the galvanized nipple in it now. Red brass, no yellow brass. Good luck with your problem and always know where and how to turn your water off to your house before attempting a plumbing repair.. Most spouts screw off. Counter clockwise, use a pair of channel locks by inserting the rubber coated handle into the opening on the spout then using the leverage of the channel locks to unscrew the spout off of the wall. It is not a repair that requires to have the water off to your home before attempting to repair. It only emits water when the tub valve is turned on. If it doesn't unscrew, twist it until the under side is up and you will see a slot where you can insert an allen wrench to loosen it and then slide off. Inspect the spout while it is in your hands to see if it is damaged of if the nipple sticking out is damaged. one of the two must be, because water flowing from behind the spout is definitely not normal and definitely something you need to fix right away, before your wall and floor behind your tub are damaged or start to grow mold.

Tip

Ball-Type Single Lever Faucets


BALL-TYPE SINGLE-LEVER FAUCETS

  • The single-handle faucet with a ball inside to control both hot and cold water may either leak at the spigot or at the handle. A handle leak is usually caused by improper adjusting-ring tension. Simply adjust the tension to stop the leak. Leaks at the handle can also result from a worn cam gasket. Dripping from the spigot is usually caused by worn spring-loaded, soft rubber seat assemblies.

  • Parts for ball-type faucets are available in kits. Get the spring/seats kit for spigot leaks, or the complete kit for handle leaks. It may be advisable to use the complete kit to replace all working parts of the faucet at the same time. In any case, you'll need a kit containing the spanner/hex wrench for removing the handle (hex end) and turning the adjusting ring (spanner end).

  • Without turning the water off, loosen the handle set screw. Slide the handle from its stem.

  • For a handle leak, try using the spanner wrench to tighten the adjusting collar. Tighten it by turning the wrench and collar clockwise until the faucet doesn't leak when it is turned on and off. If the adjustment is too loose, the faucet will leak. If you turn it too tight, the handle will be hard to move. When the adjusting ring cannot be turned with the wrench, it is corroded. At this point, you will need to remove the cap to free the adjusting ring. (See next step.) You must turn the water off before removing the cap! Apply penetrating oil to the threads, remove the ring and clean all parts before reassembling.

  • Install the seats. For faucet leaks at the spigot, you must install new rubber seats and springs. You must turn off the water to make this repair. Unscrew the chrome cap by turning it counterclockwise. If it won't turn easily, wrap electrical tape around the cap and turn it with pliers. The adjusting ring, which is threaded into the cap's center, will come off with it. For a seats/springs replacement, pull the ball up and out by its stem. The gasketed cam will come with it. Now you can locate the two rubber seats and springs inside the faucet body. Remove them with pliers or yours fingers and install the new ones. The springs go into the holes first, and the cupped sides of the seats fit over the springs.

  • Service the ball. If the ball is dirty or coated with scale, clean it or replace it with a new one. Both plastic and brass balls are available, but use a plastic one if your home has hard water.

  • Reassembly. Put the ball and cam back into the faucet with the slot in the side if the ball fitting over the pin in the faucet body. Then make sure the tab on the cam slips down into the notch in the body. Not aligning the tab and notch is the number one cause for a faucet leaking after it is repaired. Finally, screw on the cap and adjust the ring as described in Step 2. If a properly adjusted ball-type faucet leaks at the cap, the cam and gasket must be replaced.

  • Swing spouts. If a single-lever ball faucet leaks at the base, you should replace the O-rings. Remove the spout-retaining parts, as well as the spout. Wrap the spout-retaining nut with electrical tape to protect it, and remove the nut with a wrench or pliers by turning counterclockwise. Remove the spout by pulling it up and side-to-side. One or more O-rings should now be exposed. Take the O-rings to your hardware or home center store to get matching O-rings for replacement. Clean any scale that appears on the spout base, faucet body, and the inside of the swinging spout. Install the new O-rings and reverse the steps above to reassemble the faucet.

I installed a single lever shower unit when water is turned on i water out of spout and shower head . i took it a part all washers look good and doubled checked unit was put on right to water lines


You should also have a diverter in the spout. Just turn the old spout off and turn the diverter spout on. You lift the ball on top to use the shower.

How to fix a leaky Moen faucet that leaks at the spout ,which is separate from the handle?


These faucets can leak in three different places:

  1. Internally at the valve seat
    You'll see water dripping from the spout. This means the rubber washer is worn or damaged. To replace the washer, remove the decorative cap from the handle. Remove the retaining screw and pull off the handle. Remove the decorative cover, called an escutcheon, if there is one. Unscrew the packing nut counterclockwise. Unscrew the valve stem and remove it. Remove the screw that holds the rubber washer in place. Because these washers come in many shapes and sizes, you'll want to take the old one to the hardware store and buy an exact replacement. Be sure to buy two washers so you'll have one for the other valve. Replace the washer and reassemble the faucet.
  2. Around the handle
    If you see water coming from below the handle, the packing nut is leaking. Older faucets have a string-like graphite packing material wrapped around the stem. Newer faucets use an O-ring. First try tightening the packing nut clockwise... about one-half turn. If this doesn't stop the leak, remove the packing nut and replace the packing or O-ring; then reassemble the faucet. If the valve is using the graphite packing material, it might be a clue that you should shop for a new faucet.

  3. Between a pivoting spout and the body
    The spout might be held in place with a packing nut, similar to the faucet stem, or it might have a nut at the top of the spout. In either case, remove the spout and replace the packing material or the O-ring seal. Then reassemble the faucet.
Single lever faucets also are known as "washerless" faucets. They are easier to repair than compression faucets after you determine what type of faucet you have. There are three types of washerless faucets: ball, ceramic disk and cartridge.
Leaks are evident in two places... dripping from the spout and seeping from around the spout where it joins the body of the faucet.
Leaks from the spout indicate that the ball, disk or cartridge is leaking. To repair, turn off the water to the faucet, then remove the handle. The handles on ball-type faucets are held in place with a setscrew that requires an Allen wrench to loosen. Ceramic disk and cartridge-type handles usually are held in place by a screw hidden beneath a cap.
On ball and ceramic disk-type faucets, remove the ball or disk and replace the seals. You can buy replacement kits for these faucets at the hardware store or home center.
On cartridge-type faucets, remove the spout and pull out the retainer clip that holds the cartridge in place. To remove the cartridge, pull on the cartridge stem with a twisting motion. If it resists, install the handle so you can a better grip on the cartridge to pull it out. Take the cartridge to the hardware store or home center and purchase an exact replacement kit.
Reassemble the faucet according to directions.
Leaks at the spout-to-body joint indicate an O-ring failure. Disassemble the faucet as described above. Remove the spout sleeve and replace the O-rings. It's a good idea to replace these seals if you have the faucet disassembled for repair of the ball, disk or cartridge.

The handle on the bathtub is constantly streaming water. Its' not a drip. It's coming from the spout but the handle, when you turn it, won't shut off. It's supposed to shut off when pushed all the way in....


Try to identify the make of faucet. If you can identify manufacturer, go to Lowes, Home Depot or a plumbing supplier & get rebuild kit for faucet. Or if no id possible, Turn off main water supply to faucet & disassemble & bring to any of these places & they can hook you up with the correct parts needed to repair.

Water is dripping out the back of the the Danza 61/9 kitchen faucet


Just in case you need to do so.
  1. Turn the water off. The water control knob is located under your sink and is connected to the drain. Turn it counterclockwise to turn off the water.

  2. 2

    Open the faucet to relieve any differences in pressure. Pull up on the faucet as you would if you were turning it on.

  3. 3

    Plug the drain of the sink with its stopper to prevent any parts from going down it.

  4. 4

    Turn the faucet handle sharply to one side to reveal a small cover plate. Pry the plate off carefully with a flat-bladed screwdriver.

  5. 5

    Unscrew the screw that is located behind the cover plate with a 4 mm allen key.

  6. 6

    Lift the handle off and remove the cap beneath it.

  7. 7

    Firmly grip the exposed cartridge with your hands and pull up to remove it.

No water is pumping thru the water spout or the coffee spout, the machine is reading fine grounds and press okay for water. i've adjusted grinder dial and pressed water button but nothing happened


I got this machine and there was grinding noise but no water coming from the spout or coffee from the dispenser.

Took the back cover off. The big lump in the middle is the water pump. One of the wire connections was hanging off mine. Pushed the connector back on and everything worked fine.

Great coffee, rubbish construction!

There are repair kits for frost free silcocks, if you can find one that fits yours. Sometimes it is more difficult to find a repair kit than to replace the whole thing.

Power vent tankless heater has a down draft


I got a dryer vent kit (Alum) took the extension pipe off and cut the center hole open a little and slid it over the existing elbow. Now when the heater turns on the little flap opens and when the air flow stops the flap closes stopping the air coming down the pipe.
