We close the water outlet valve first, then remove the faucet, first look at the structure, there is a blue rubber ring below, remove the rubber ring first, and then press the top to push out the ceramic valve core inside and take it out After that, you can remove all the parts inside. Since the water leaks, you need to find the problem. Let’s take a look at the valve core. There is a small gap between the two sides, which is the leak caused by this gap.
We find a sharpening stone, or sandpaper, and sand it all the time, smoothing the gap, and then smoothing it without gaps, let’s not grind too hard, otherwise the sand will be leaked due to the impact of water. At that time, only new ones were available.
The ceramic valve core is not particularly easy to be damaged. Generally, the water drips because the fitting is not tight. If the valve core is OK, you need to look at the gasket. It may be a problem with the gasket. You only need to replace the same type of gasket. Because continuous grinding may break itself, it’s best to be careful.
Remove the small screws above or behind the handle of the faucet to remove the handle fixed to the main body of the faucet. Some screws are hidden under metal buttons, plastic buttons or plastic sheets. When you open the buttons, you will see the handle screws on the top. You can use a wrench to loosen and remove the valve core, take out the shaft gasket with a clip, replace it with a new shaft gasket or replace the valve core.
Reinstall the handle and replace the button or disc. Turn the water supply back on and check for leaks.
Water leakage at the faucet base connection is caused by the wear of the gasket inside the gland. You can loosen the screw to remove the bolt head, then loosen the gland, and then take out the inner gasket of the gland and replace it with a new one.
In the future, we can solve the situation of water dripping from the faucet.
