1.What to do if the faucet valve leaks
Of course, turn off the main switch of the water source first. Then open a screw-covered cover on the handle of the faucet, and remove the handle to reveal the Phillips screw. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the handle and put it aside to reveal the spool assembly. Use a wrench or pliers to rotate counterclockwise to remove the valve core assembly.
Then carefully disassemble the valve core assembly, taking care not to damage the parts, and check whether the valve core is damaged. If there is no damage, it is because the parts are loose and cannot be sealed tightly. Now you can see its structure and then take a leather pad and add it between the valve core plastic sealing ring (red ring) and the valve core to increase the tightness of its contact.
Then assemble the faucet accessories in the original order. Now there is an extra leather cushion ring-shaped cushion inside, and the assembled valve core is reinstalled to increase the tightness.
2.What to do if the faucet gasket leaks
Turn off the water supply, and remove the small screws on or behind the faucet handle to remove the handle fixed on the faucet body. Some screws are hidden under metal buttons, plastic buttons, or plastic sheets, which snap into or screw into the handle. As long as you turn on the button, you will see the handle screw on the top.
Remove the handle and check the parts of the faucet. Use large slip joint pliers or an adjustable wrench to remove the packing nut, being careful not to scratch the metal. Turn the spool or shaft in the same direction that you turned on the faucet to unscrew them.
Remove the screws that fix the washer. If necessary, use penetrating lubricant to loosen the screws. Check the screws and spool, and replace them if they are damaged. Replace the old washer with an identical new washer. New washers that almost completely match the old washers generally keep the tap from dripping.
Fix the new gasket to the valve core, and then reinstall the parts in the faucet. Rotate the spool clockwise. After the spool is in place, reinstall the packing nut. Be careful not to scratch the metal with the wrench. Then open the gate and check.
