SOURCE: faucet leaks when i turn

you need a new cartridge is bad and sounds like some junk is inside. You might have lime and even a broken part inside.

I dont think you will be able to fix it this weekend. It is hard to fine parts, if you check your local stores that sell pluming parts they :MIGHT" have the one that fits yours.

I have ot say one nite I had a person where I could not get the parts, but they had the same faucet. So I got the set, took the parts out, got new part fixed like new and took it back.

You go where you have to in talking care of your clients.

Be safe and take care.

I have a Nicolozzi Faucet Monterosa style and the hot water handle is loose and there is no water flow. The cold water handle is fine and there is good flow from the cold tap. I need to know how to ta

Determine which side of your faucet is leaking by shutting off the water supply valves one at a time. If the leak doesn't stop after the first valve is turned off, it's the other line that's leaking.
Once you determine which side is leaking, turn off both supply valves.
If your valves are stuck, shut off the water main. You will have to replace hardware for both sides since you won't be able to identify whether the hot or cold side is leaking.
Disassemble the Old Faucet

Step 1

Turn faucet handles to the "on" position to release any residual water. Close the drain and place a towel in the sink to protect the surface and catch any dropped parts.

Step 2

Remove the aerator and inspect it for damage. If it's stuck, soak a towel in vinegar and wrap it around the aerator to help loosen mineral deposits. After an hour, gently twist the aerator with a towel and pliers.

Step 3

As you disassemble the old faucet, lay the parts in order on a flat surface and snap a picture for reference. Then, put those parts in a plastic bag and take them to the store with you when shopping. You may only require one part, but it may be best to buy a kit and replace everything, including a new aerator if yours is damaged.

Shower hot and cold stop valves leaking its installed in 1991 how can i repair or replace them? Its costly replacing with other models.please help.

It sounds like your talking about the valves under the the lav faucet like from the pic that is showen in your post. But you used the word "SHOWER HOT AND COLD" So I am going with the idea that you are talking about a shower valve.

If your talking about the screw driver stops to each side if it is leaking from the around the center of the screw stop. You may just need to tighten the nut on the outside that the stem goes though.Or you can take the nut off (tirn off the water to the building) and get some rope packing and run a couple of rapps around the stem replace the nut and tighen and turn the water back on.

If it still leaks some to the samething over again just put more packing in. Should cost you about 5 dollars

Best of luck Tom

On this valve the hot/cold in reverse is easy enough to fix, but the faucet dripping at the handle is another issue. To reverse the hot and cold, turn off the house water, relieve the pressure by opening a nearby faucet. Once the water stops, remove the handle and faucet cover so you can see the valve. then the four screws that are visible need to be removed. Mark one of the screw holes with a crayon or pencil and then remove by pulling straight out. Once out, inspect the main o-ring right behind where it sits against the valve, (if this is damaged, it might be why the handle area is leaking) then turn the whole assembly clockwise 180 degrees then insert straight back in and insert screws. Tighten screws until snug. Turn water back on before installing cover and handle to check for leaks. If no leaks are found, install cover and handle and check for proper position of hot and cold. If there are leaks, tighten screws in clockwise rotation tightening each screw a quarter turn, then moving to the next one until dripping stops. If dripping is from center of stem, where the handle attaches, you will need to contact Price Pfister to request a replacement. They are very good to work with. Good luck.

Cold side of faucet, when turned on, occasionally stops flowing.

Sounds like the valve is comming apart internally. This allows the water to get into places it shouldn't and the water pressure forces the valve closed even though the handle is in the open position. Take it apart and check for loose screws and broken pieces. Lowes or Home Depot should have parts. Don't forget to shut off the valve below the faucet (if the plumber installed one) if not one will have ot shut off incomeing water supply.

Mixer tap makes a noise like a fog horn when cold water turned on

Usually happens when the stops and not ballanced(hot and cold pressures going to the faucet). Try ajusting the stops; open more on the hot or close more on the cold.

Low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.
  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.
