Faucet is easy to leak

Even if the faucet is tightened, it will still leak:

1. The reason for the water leakage at the water outlet: it is caused by the wear of the shaft gasket in the faucet. Use pliers to loosen and remove the gland, remove the shaft gasket with a clip, and replace it with a new one.

2. Causes of water leakage in the lower part of the faucet: This is caused by the wear of the triangular seal inside the gland. You can loosen the screw to remove the hoe, then loosen the gland, then remove the inner triangular seal of the gland and replace it with a new one.

3. Leakage at the joint: The cover nut is loose, and you can retighten the cap nut or replace it with a new U-ring.
If the faucet is found to have less water, it may be a leaking condition, because the water stop disk of the single-gun faucet is stuck with the sandstone. This phenomenon is still to find a professional repairer to disassemble the faucet, but if the rubber pad is damaged, it must be replaced. In general, the correct use of the faucet means that the faucet should not be rotated too tightly, so that the faucet pad can maintain a life of 7 or 8 years, but the faucet of the hot water part is easy to reduce its life due to thermal expansion and contraction. Therefore, it is generally recommended that the hot and cold pads be replaced at the same time.
