Faucets in home can be of two types: compression and non-compression. Most compression faucets use washers to seal the inlet in the faucet when water is not wanted. Other styles use some other device, such as neoprene caps. Noncompression faucets use a brass or plastic ball, a ceramic disk, a cartridge, or valve stems called tipping valves to stop the flow of water.
Many of today’s more expensive faucets are guaranteed by the manufacturer to be leakproof for life. If a faucet starts to leak, it is replaced free of charge.
Obviously, faucets manufactured without the benefit of state-of-the-art technology are not immune from leakage. Fortunately, leaky faucets are very easy to fix. You can use the straightforward information in this booklet as a guide to repair, but keep in mind that the construction of your particular faucet may differ somewhat from that described here. However, you’ll get a good understanding of how faucets work and which part does what. This can help you fix most leaky faucets.
This is an illustrated how-to booklet that will show you everything that you need to see so you’ll have a better understanding of what you need to do. This booklet will also present you with step-by-step guides on how you can take care of leaky faucets – disassembling the unit, evaluating and determining the problem, taking care of the problem and putting the unit back together.
No one needs to tell you that leaky faucets are a huge test of patience. They’re annoying to say the least and more importantly, they waste a lot of water. Use this guide to fix them.
