Question about Plumbing

I have a bathroom lavatory faucet , white in color , single handle by the manufacturer "Bormix". I think it is a Scandinavian brand. I can't find a replacement for it anywhere. I love the item but is 24 years old and has calcium deposits. Where can I find one like it?

All I can think of is to do a google search for "Bormix" and hope you can find them. As a matter of curiosity, where did you purchase it, and when? Maybe contact the installer - if he is still alive. Last option would be to remove it (very carefully) and clean it out with some sort of tool for such things, then replace it (also very carefully). If I had your problem, I would just replace it with a new high-end faucet. After all, 24 years - c'mon. You've gotten all the use you could possibly expect from it - and way more.

SOURCE: Repair cartridge in Moen Monticello single handle lavatory faucet

After some additional experimenting, contrary to information I was previously able to gather, I discovered that the white plastic retainer doesn't (in this type of Moen faucet) actually screw off but rather is held in place by a spring clip inserted from the rear of the retainer (toward the wall side of the basing). Simply sticking a small screwdriver in the opening (approx. 45 degrees downward) and tipping the screwdriver toward the front of the faucet, snaps the spring clip out through the opening.
The plastic retainer than lifts off. Note: the flat sides on the retainer suggest that a wrench will be needed but such is not the case.

SOURCE: I just installed a new cartridge in a moen single

try and pull the cartridge out and look in there with a flash light and make sure there isn't any think lodged in the hot water side of the faucet, you might even want to leave the cartridge out and turn the water back on to try and flush it out. alot of times rubber from the old cartridge gets stuck in there as you are pulling the old one out especially if it's stuck in there good

SOURCE: Severely reduced water pressure from lavatory faucet

Take the strainer off the spout and check to see if there is any dirt or rust buildup in the strainer. This happens when repairs have been done. It usually collects at the first place the water comes out of.

I have an american standard bathroom faucet. Single handle. It is leaking where the faucet meets the sink. I do not see any screws to take off the handle. How do I fix it?

First, turn off the water supply under the sink. Next, put the faucet lever in the up position, no water should be coming out. While in the up position turn slowly while looking at the underside of the handle and you should be able to find a set screw. It will probable be an "allen head" type and you will need and allen head wrench to loosen it. An allen head looks like a hex shape, 6 sided I believe and is rod shaped. If you don't have one they come in sets at your local hardeware.
