Your problem is a simple one.

  1. Turn off water to faucet.
  2. Place a towel(s) in the base of the sink(s) to prevent any parts from going down drain.
  3. Remove the handle to the faucet. (single handle only)
  4. If not a single handle then remove spout from faucet.
  5. If a single handle remove cap carefully and any loose parts.
  6. Gently turn spout side to side while lifting to remove.
  7. You will see a hole with a very small valve where the water comes out to the spout on the base of the faucet.

  1. Remove this valve (which is a backflow preventer) and replace.
  2. Reassemble and test.
Problem solved.

There is an o-ring around the valve body inside the outer shell. This needs replacing -- sometimes you can match these at hardware stores.

Shut water off, remove handle, pull up outer shell, you'll see the o-ring.

More info, let me know.

SOURCE: 533-50 kitchen faucet leaks above base mount at

There are O rings that seal the various body parts of this faucet. I would try turning off the supply lines, removing the handle, and unscrewing the faucet and the housings. Look for O rings that seal each part. Could be a broken, or maybe some foreign material has gotten in the O ring grooves. Best bet would be to replace any O rings and tighten it all back securely. It should not have any Up and Down play, should only swivel side to side. I'm thinking O rings. While there, you can replace the seat seals and springs, so that you preclude any leaks from the faucet itself. Lowes, Home Depot, carry the repair kits for these faucets at a reasonable price. And they usually include the allen wrench and wrench to remove the handle and the body parts. And they are relatively inexpensive. Around 4 to 6 dollars. Its an easy fix.

The nuts used for capping off the sprayer attachment will bottom out and not seal. Unless there is tape or thread compound on the nut, it can spray a tiny jet up under the faucet when the faucet is activated. If there is clearly water leaking from above that, then the o ring for the spigot may be failing and need replacing. If this is the case, it will only leak when the faucet is activated. There is always the possibility of a crack in the casting of the faucet body; hope not:)

Broken thumb lever to a kitchen faucet side spray


Unless you have a super duper fancy faucet, all spray head for kitchen faucets are standard, and can be picked up at any hardware store, home depot, lowes or plumbing supply.

The easiest method of replacement is to screw off the handle, and leave the old hose intact. On the hose you will find two black washers. one fat and one thin. Take note which one comes off first and replace in that order. Pull back the screw housing and you will see the white plastic tube on the end of the spray hose has a locking ring nestled in a groove. Remove it. Now you can remove the old screw housing and put the new one on. After putting the handle screw housing on the hose, install the lock ring back into the groove., put washers back on in correct order, and screw your new spray head on. Good luck!

Your question is: You have an American Standard two faucet in my kitchen and the base of the spout leaks at the base. How do you remove it and replace the washers?

Are we talking about an American Standard two HANDLE faucet or one of the single handle models?
