Question

How to fix a leaky cartridge faucet?

Home Alliance Tech Expert
Answer

Remove the handle screw, pry off the ornamental cap, tilt the handle back, and take it off. Use needle-nose pliers to remove any threaded retention clips keeping the cartridge in place, then raise it straight up. Use a tool knife to remove the old O-rings and remove the spout. Apply heat-resistant, non-toxic plumber's grease to the new O-rings. Match the length of the new cartridge to the old one to replace the complete cartridge. The stem end where the handle is attached should also match.
