Why Does Stainless Steel Faucets Leak?

Recommended Posts

The phenomenon of water leakage in faucets is not uncommon. It can be said that it is often encountered. How to solve this problem? Let's take the example of stainless steel faucets to share the solution. 1. The gap in the faucet junction is leaking. It may be that the contact is not tightened. Try the screw. 2. If the water outlet of the faucet leaks, it may be that the water stop tape is damaged. Use the lifting pliers to remove the faucet and re-roll a new water-stopping tape where the screws are fixed. 3. If the sealing ring of the faucet is broken, it will cause water leakage. You need to replace the new sealing ring and use a wrench to unscrew the packing nut. The seal is an "O" shaped rubber sheet, and some are a string or wire wound around the spool under the packing nut. If it is broken, take it down and replace it with a new one. Then tighten the nut. It is better to apply a little Vaseline oil to the thread and nut of the valve plug before screwing the nut. 4. The damage of the shaft gasket inside the faucet will also cause water leakage. Remove the gland of the faucet and use the clip to take out the worn shaft gasket and replace it with a new one. 5. If the valve seat is broken, the water tap and the surface of the table will leak. Of course, you can choose to replace the whole faucet, or you can change only one seat. It is easy to remove the valve seat. It can be done with a wrench. If it is not removed, insert a seat cover that slides into the proper position of the old seat and provides a seal. Two types of seat roller compactors or sanders that can re-flat the worn seat. Remove the valve plug to use the sander, turn it clockwise a few times with the appropriate force, and wipe off the metal scrap that has fallen off. information about stainless steel faucets : https://www.afastainlesskb.com/product/stainless-steel-faucets/
