Leaking Kitchen Tap

I have this tap in my kitchen (Atlanta Single Lever Tap PVD Stainless Steel Atlanta Single Lever Tap PVD Stainless Steel) and it has two sections, and the top section leaks, and we have to leave it in a certain position otherwise the tap will slowly leak eveywhere.
Is it the washer? if so how does the tap come apart? Do you have to turn the water supply off prior to dismantling the tap?

Yes your right it's the seal inside and it can be replaced you should shut the water off after all why make a mess when you don't have to. however I'm not familiar with this typ of faucet. you more than likely be able to get help from your local area hardware store when you purchase your gasket for replacement.

Blanco Eye Kitchen tap cold water is leaking from tap[ WHEN TURNED OFF. I have remove the allen screw that secures the the cold lever but I cannot remove the leaver


Hello doy.. get a can of WD-40 penetrating lubricant and spray it on the seam connecting the lever and the body. It will penetrate within an hour or so. Repeat if necessary.

Also use a plastic head or a rubber head hammer to tap it up.

Single handle Spray faucet leaks at it's base, leaking under the kitchen sink


If you still have the receipts from the purchase call Moen directly as they warranty their faucets for life and will send you the replacement parts you need. If you need to purchase replacement parts then you can purchase a Moen single lever repair kit from your local hardware store which should run you around $10. Go the the Moen website and look for your model. They generally have an exploded view of every one of their models that will assist you in dissassembling the tap without any surprises. Reassemble the tap with the new o-rings etc installed and test.

The entire faucet is lifting off and spraying water at the joint when the lever is activated and water is being used,do I need to call a plumber to repair this. It seems that the faucet cannot be screwed...


No you do not need a plumber,
below under the sink, there are two valves, One for Hot ,One for Cold.
Turn them to the right.make sure they are turn all the way with a little pressure at the end. Now the kitchen has no water.
With a wrench ot pliers remove the water hoses, There may be a little water left in the hose so don't panic.
Now this may be a little harder.
Put yourself all the way under the sink,with you on your back.
Do you see the taps. There may be a fitting with screws. remove screws and fitting. You should be able to remove the whole Tap.
With you new tap... Follow their instruction.
When you are putting the hoses back on.. make sure they are slightly snug.
We don't want it to leak again.
Turn you water back on and slowly turn on your taps.

How can I remove this faucet to allow me to replace this fixture?


there is abacking nut & plate securing tap to sink, most are 1/2 inch use long socket to make it easier, also you must disconnect pullout hose from tap (connection also under sink) & remove hose weight located usally at the bottom of pull out hose. Make sure you isolate all water first!

hope this helps

Single Handle faucet broke on my Kohler kitchen faucet and can find no replacement or solution


Is cheaper to replace the whole tap as the service kits cost almost as much as the tap to buy, I presume you are talking about a flick mixer tap (that is what they are called in australia)
Replacing them is reasonably easy, turn off water at the main out on the footpath turn the tap on to let the water run out, go under the sink with a couple of spanners or deep reach socket and undo the lines and the tap hold down nuts and remove, replace in reverse order

Leaking single lever kitchen tap


on most of the single handle faucets there is an erasure like button ( may have a hot and cold blue and red indicator or be silver ) usually located right under the faucet arm on the manifold chrome sleeve or back behind the arm or it could have a large ring nut over the doam of the lever take your hand and feel the area that covers the area where the spout arm swivels and feel for the button or take your fingers and fel the to of the lever doam

if you find the button just take a sharp screw driver( be sure to plug the drain holes and turn hot and cold water off under sink) pry the button off and use a hex wrench and loosten

if no button then there has to be a large nut on top you may seee two grooves oppsoite each other wheich would mean a special tool

use an adjustable wrench (put cloth ofer chrome to protect and turn counter clock wise( the ring nut will not be very thick

after removing you should be able to replace the cartridge

good luck
