What should I do if the basin tap faucet leaks water?
It is a headache for the faucet to leak water. Many friends are puzzled. It is not good to use water from the basin. It is not good for dripping, and it also affects the appearance. So what should the faucet leak from the water?
The reason why the faucet leaks water is mostly due to the old or broken water-stopping tape of the fixed faucet screw, so we can replace it with a new water-stop tape. However, if the part is broken, it is necessary to check the triangular seal of the faucet or the inner axial washer and replace it with a new one. Let’s take a look at how to operate.

The reason why the faucet leaks water drops: O-ring seal wear

The internal structure of the faucet has one or more O-shaped rings to prevent water from escaping from the periphery of the water outlet. If these O-rings are broken, the faucet will leak water. The tools needed to replace the O-ring are wrenches, new O-rings, and seam tape.

Solution: First, turn off the water supply at home, then remove the nut that fixes the water outlet, then wrap the nut with tape to prevent it from being scratched by other hard objects; lift the water outlet upwards, then take out the O shape inside the water outlet seat Ring, replace the new one and then assemble the faucet step by step.

The reason why the faucet leaks water is two: the faucet valve seat is broken.

If you find that you have leaked water after replacing it with a new one, it may be that the seat of the faucet is broken. Because once the gasket is damaged, the valve seat of the faucet may be worn by the metal valve core, or the deposition of chemical substances may be formed, so that the gasket cannot completely fit the faucet valve seat.

Solution: Replace the faucet seat or the entire faucet. Use a seated spanner to remove the seat. If it is difficult to remove, insert a seat cover, use a seat sander to flatten the worn seat, and then wipe the polished metal scrap off.

The above is about the solution to the faucet leaking water. If you understand the reason why the faucet leaks water, you can take corresponding measures to solve it, so you don’t need to ask a professional master to come to your door, you can also repair it!
