Fixing A Leaky Faucet Determining Faucet Type


Drip, drip, drip. There are many inconveniences to be reckoned with when you have a leaky faucet in your home. First of all, the noise can range from a minor tapping in the background to a major barrier to sleep at night. You stand to lose some money in terms of energy costs, as well, if the water you are losing is hot. If you live in an area where you pay for water usage, you could end up with a hefty bill simply due to a leaky faucet- your leak may lose you gallons of water every day, in the home repair equivalent of death by a thousand cuts.

There are several ways to remedy your situation when you encounter a leaky faucet, some of them band-aid solutions and some of them more permanent. One temporary solution is to purchase a faucet washer- a small piece of metal that can screw on to the opening of your faucet to delay the drip action. The water is still leaking, but the amount being lost is what is being dammed. This strategy does not work for very long, however, and can even be detrimental in that it might make you forget that you actually have to repair that leak sometime.

The more permanent solution. Of course, is to find the source of the drip and repair it. This is a relatively simple procedure that most people will be able to accomplish on their own; if you use a plumber for it you will be spending some big bucks that you wont really have to.

Writing and reading about fixing your leaky faucet is actually a more involved process than the actual doing, for the simple reason that before you can fix the problem you must determine what type of faucet you have. This will help determine the problem and the procedure need to fix it.

There are four basic types of faucets- ball type, disc type, cartridge type, and compression type.

Compression type faucets are the oldest and most common types of faucet, and can be identified in two steps. The first step is visual- if your faucet has separate handles for the hot and cold water, it is either a cartridge or compression faucet. You can determine which your faucet is either by feel or by taking the mechanism apart and again examining it visually. Compression faucet handles are meant to screw down and up in order to shut off or release the water flow- you have to add pressure in order to turn the tap off the whole way. A cartridge faucet does not require this added pressure, it simply swings easily shut and the water flow is cut off.

If you choose to make sure about your faucet type by taking the mechanism apart, first turn off your water. Remove the handle and examine the casing inside the faucet. Compression faucets will have a shaft leading down into the body of the faucet. Cartridge models will have the insides encased in plastic.

The cartridge type of faucet is washerless, as are the other two types, ball and disc. Ball types are operated by a single handle that swings back and forth between the hot and cold by a ball mechanism at the base of the faucet. Disc types have a single handle that extends outward towards the faucet and moves up and down to turn the water on and off, with a smooth horizontal pattern to adjust the levels of hot and cold water.

Once you have determined what kind of faucet you have, you will need to follow the correct procedures for repairing the drip according to the type of faucet you have identified.

    The issues are that the 40mm x No. 7 screws wasnt sufficient to fully tighten the front and rear cross-sections to the seat section. held but not securely. Pri-drilled holes should be just that little deeper.

    Exactly as described good quality (keter) assembly was easy just a screwdriver and a second pair of hands when fixing the lid on. It now has all the cushions from our corner suite inside of which was impressive.

    Lovely bench, although I wish I didn't have to put everything together - it would be nice if it came ready built - that goes for all sorts of things I buy online!

    Love having an extra table or seat whenever needed. They are outdoor benches but the paint hasn’t lasted as long as I expected.

    Love the set and impressed by delivery, 2 hour slot and driver telephoned me when he was 10 minutes. They unpacked it for me and took the huge cardboard container away.

    Decent swing. Not too large, good enough for two people. We will see how it holds up outside. The wood seems like somewhat decent quality, but not sure long-term. It is somewhat difficult awkward to put together. I would recommend two people to put this item together. Part of the main beam cracked slightly when I was putting it together. Used some wood glue it’s good as new, however, you shouldn’t have to use wood glue on a brand new product. Also, the styrofoam in the packaging is a PAIN! The little styrofoam pieces get everywhere! It falls apart so easily - wish they would use better quality styrofoam. It seems like a little thing but it’s quite a pain to clean up.

    Great quality bench seat. Looks good and is solid. Putting it together was a challenge as the long hex screws were hard to get in (forget about using the stupid allen Key provided). Used a torque wrench and that made simple work of it!

    First order required a replacement chair as damaged item sent out (no fault of delivery company) excellent customer service in handling problem and very good comms. Unfortunately after the items outside for 1 week there is rust markings already appearing on each piece of set. We originally didn't use a cover but it's certainly required as this obviously isn't even shower proof. Colour as shown in advertisement photos. Pretty bistro set however I wish it was a little more durable.

    Great Product easy to put together, the compartments are a little small and larger shoe sizes are a struggle to get in, but other than that it looks great in the living room.

    These are small footprint but medium impact. They don’t come with anything in them and I wouldn’t put live plants in them. Luckily I had some fake succulents from another decoration that I pieced out to put in these. Looks cute!

    Great product, goes together very easily and feels very sturdy with huge capacity. Having read many poor reviews for similar items elsewhere I'm pleased I went with this one. Only 1 person needed to assemble apart from when attaching the lid for which it's helpful to have a friend to hold it steady while you screw in the hinges. Also big hand to www.boisecloggers.com, the lid had a slight crack on it which I photographed and filled in the online form and a new lid was dispatched the next day with no quibble at all. Online retail as it should be.

    The directions and supplied tools could be improved a lot but the bench itself is nice looking and not a bad setup

    My husband put the bench together yesterday, and we're going to get it into the garden this afternoon. Lock-down has meant we weren't able to get our back garden remodelled, but we know we want this bench, and where it will be going. Meanwhile, we'll just enjoy using it ! I love the soft aqua colour, and the centre section able to be raised for an armrest/ mug stand.
