You will need to buy the o-rings to fix it. You can buy at most hardware stores if you know how to turn off the water you can fix this with more instructions. Let me know if you need more help.

The cold water on my Delta double hand faucet is leaking. I replaced the spring and rubber seat. when I put it back together, i can not turn the water off with the handle. I took the stem assembly out...


I believe they go in one way ,, but I've seen some that are 180 degrees out, which would make it so the water won't shut off, also with delta and moen,, add some plumbers grease to the o rings and faucet washers, so they don't stick when replacing,

Customer installed a kohler tub/shower faucet and it leaks out of the head. We've changed the cartridge but the results were the samr.a Any recommrndations?


If it leaks out of the shower head and not the faucet tap, then I would look into the scald guard setting or the selector lever or even for a small scratch around the cartridge.

Two faucet shower control hot water faucet leaks- I took of the cap, handle, and unscrewed the long screw and there was a long white place stem. Is this where the seal goes.


You will need to remove the cartridge that the screw was attached to and underneath there is a rubber cup washer with a small cone shaped spring. You need to replace the rubber washer which is called a seat and the spring ,then put cartridge and handle back on and you should be good to go. Thank you.

I have an American Standard Colony? bathtub faucet set that has been leaking at the spout. I thought the reason for the leak was the seats and rubber washers needed to be replaced. After doing so I still...


Check these items:

1. If you installed new faucet seats, did you add a little pipe joint compound to the threads before installing them?

2. Make sure the shower diverter is in the off position and you're not seeing water leaking from the spout that could be coming from the shower pipe or residual water from the shower head.

3. Make sure you have the correct faucet washers - some or tapered and some are flat and must fit the stem counter bore correctly and that the counter bore isn't damaged or the stem shaft isn't bent. Make sure the waskers are the correct hardness.

4. Make sure the screws that secure the faucet washers are tight, but not too tight. It doesn't hurt to add a little pipe joint compound to the screws.

Balancing valves replaced but showerhead still leaking


If the faucet dribbles from the spout one of the valves leaks. the way to find out wich one is to turn off one of the angle stops under the sink and if the problem goes away that side is the culprit, if not it is the other side and you may need a new stem.

Replaced shower valve. still drips from tub spout


The cartridge has 2 or 3 o-ring type seals around it that feed the water through, it picks up both hot and cold and mixes them. Some cartridges are replaced as one, some you have to replace the seals, just take the faucet info to the hardware store and match it up. I think the diverter is for the shower. It sends the water up instead of out.

Problem with Sterling stem.when transfered to shower,still leaks


You did not tighten the stem enough, allowing the seat to rise just above the cavity where it will sit. You may also have scaling in this area preventing the seat from sitting flush.
