Signs and symptoms of a faucet that needs to be repaired or replaced.
- Dripping when the faucet is in the off position is one of the first and most common signs a faucet needs to be repaired or replaced. The cause could be either a defective cartridge/stem, defective o-rings or the entire faucet needs to be replaced.
- Water being too hot or too cold. This issue shows that hot and cold water are not being mixed together properly. The likely culprit is the cartridge/stem. It is more likely in older faucets. If the problem persists, the entire unit may need to be replaced.
- Degradation of the faucet is a clear sign the faucet cannot be repaired and must be replaced. Corrosion at the base of the faucet or small pin holes along the stem are clear indications replacement is required. If the faucet is not replaced and further disintegration happens, the base can become loose and leaks can occur, causing damage to the counter and surrounding cabinets.
