What should I do if the faucet encounters a leak? In fact, users with a little hands-on ability can do it themselves, and maintain them according to the different types of faucets.

Preparation tools: screwdriver, penetrating lubricant, pliers or adjustable wrench and the mat to be replaced.

1 The faucet leaks due to the sealing ring of the faucet

Drip occurs when the faucet is closed; water leakage occurs when there is water flowing through the faucet. If you see water coming out of the handle, your tap is leaking; the first thing to do is to make sure the fill nut of the tap is tight, but be careful not to scratch the nut with a pliers or wrench.

2 The O-ring of the faucet will also cause the faucet to leak

The kitchen faucet has one or more O-rings to prevent water from escaping around the water outlet. If the O-ring is worn out, you will see water flowing out at the bottom of the water outlet each time you turn on the faucet.

The following tools are required to replace the O-ring: adjustable wrench, hose joint tape, replacement O-shape.

3 Water leakage caused by the faucet seat

If you change the tap and the faucet is dripping, there may be a problem with the faucet seat. A damaged gasket may cause the faucet seat to become rough due to metal spool wear, or the deposition of chemicals in the water may form a residue that prevents the gasket from being fully compressed against the valve seat.
