How to deal with a leaking faucet
In fact, the structure of the faucet is very simple. The maintenance of the water leakage can be done by yourself. Generally speaking, the problem of water leakage only needs to be replaced by the axial gasket or triangular gasket inside the faucet. , It can be resolved. However, the main water tap in the house must be turned off before the renovation.
Regarding the repair of water leakage at the faucet joint, the cause of the water leakage is nothing more than damage to the water-stop tape on the faucet part (fixing screw). Therefore, just use a wrench to remove the faucet and re-roll the new water-stop tape on the fixed screw. The following are the maintenance steps: First, tighten the faucet first, and use a wrench to turn the faucet counterclockwise. Turn to remove. Second, turn the threaded hole outwards, and roll the threaded part clockwise with wind-printed tape 5-6 times.
Check whether the faucet has been adjusted and bolted clockwise with the water bolt wrench. After the final installation is completed, turn on the main switch and try to see if there is still water leakage. Even if the faucet is fastened, there will still be water leakage:
1. The reason for the leakage of the water outlet: it is caused by the wear of the axial gasket in the faucet. Use pliers to loosen the gland and remove it, take out the shaft gasket with a clamp, and replace it with a new shaft gasket.
2. The cause of water leakage in the gap under the faucet bolt: it is caused by the wear of the triangular gasket in the gland. You can loosen the screw to remove the bolt head, then loosen and remove the gland, then take out the triangle seal on the inner side of the gland and replace it with a new one.
3. Water leakage at the joint of the connecting pipe: Generally, the cap nut is loose. At this time, you can re-tighten the cap nut or replace with a new U-shaped gasket.
If you find that there is less water in the faucet, it may be leaking, because the water-stop disk of the single-lance faucet is stuck with sand and gravel. This phenomenon is still to be disassembled and cleaned by a professional repairer, but if the rubber pad is damaged It must be replaced. Generally speaking, the correct use of the faucet means not to rotate the faucet too tightly. The rubber mat of the sauce faucet can maintain a life span of 7 or 8 years. Life, so it is usually recommended that the hot and cold rubber pads should be replaced regularly at the same time.
