Sometimes on the stems on the side the handle attaches is a nut that can be tightened. Inside this nut is a rubber or other type of seal. tightening this nut stops the water from coming out of the handle. If the nut has already been tightened then possibly need to replace this rubber seal.

I have a delta shower/tub faucet. When we divert the water to the tub we still get some water dripping through the shower head.How do I repair this it is in a guest bath and rarely is used(25 times)


The diverter in the tub spout probably is clogged with mineral deposits, preventing complete diversion. Replacing the spout might help.

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.

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.

Help! When I pull out the control stem on the tub spout to send water through the shower head most of the water continues to flow out through the tub spout. Is there something that I can replace or...


You can replace the assembly and not have to worry about taking apart the stem or, you can get a replacement diverter. The spout will twist off turning counterclockwise.

I bought the Danco replacement stem for a milwaukee faucet(part 4s-6h/c) it is leaking from the handle... do I need to replace the plastic part that runs back into the pipe? Is there an easy way to remove...


Sometimes on the stems on the side the handle attaches is a nut that can be tightened. Inside this nut is a rubber or other type of seal. tightening this nut stops the water from coming out of the handle. If the nut has already been tightened then possibly need to replace this rubber seal.

Shower spout


There is a threaded stem that passes through the spout and attaches to the white plastic diveter valve. If you are starting from scratch (everything apart), you can put it back together in this order:
1) Place the white plastic diverter inside the spout. the circular side with the black round washer should face the the wall side of the shower (mating up against the threads for the water pipe).
2) The stem can now be inserted from the top and into the notched section of the white plastic diverter valve. The threaded end of the stem shoud be outside of the spout (from the top side).
3) A round black washer fits over the threads. It should sit right where the threads end. Dont push it all the way on to the unthreaded portion of the stem.
4) Screw the threaded knob onto the threads.

Should be ready to install now. Including the spout itself, there are 5 parts and are configured in this order from top to bottom.
1) Female threaded knob (the knob for operating the spout)
2) Threaded stem (threads on top)
3) Round black washer
4) Spout
5) Whit plastic diverter valve.

Mine leaks when I turn on the shower, thus reducing shower pressure. I looks like a poor design to me. The stem is not a tight fit in the spout and this allows the diverter to "wobble". The washer on the diverter valve does not seat tightly and allows water to leak out the tub spout when showering. I would replace the spout.

Trying to remove cowell from Roman tub faucet


The Price Phister Roman tub spout needs to be tightened from beneath.
If you do not have a removable skirt on the tub it will be a bit difficult to tighten.
Should you have crawl space under the tub and are careful to locate the dead space between the tub and the skirt you can cut a hole beneath the valve and spout location and reach up from below to tighten the spout.
If you have tile as a surround and no access from below you will have to remove some of the tile in order to gain access.

You may want to call in a proffessional plumber to handle this.

Hope this helps,
