Leakage treatment

In normal life, sometimes you will find that the faucet will drip after tightening, and it will not stop from the outlet of the faucet or the joint, which will not only cause a lot of waste, but sometimes its sound will also cause some troubles. In fact, the construction of the faucet is very simple, and the maintenance of the leaking water can be completely repaired by yourself. Generally speaking, the problem of water leakage can be replaced by the sealing pad type such as the axial gasket or the triangular sealing gasket inside the faucet. has been solved. However, the main switch of the faucet should be turned off before the renovation.

Regarding the water leakage repair at the faucet joint, the reason for the water leakage is caused by the damage of the water sealing tape of the faucet part (fixing screw). So just use the wrench to remove the faucet and re-roll the new water-stop tape in the place where the screw is fixed. The following steps are for repair: First, tighten the faucet and use the wrench to turn the faucet counterclockwise. Turn off and take off. Second, the threaded hole is outward, and the threaded portion is rolled 5-6 times with the windprint tape.

Look at the faucet to adjust the water wrench to enter the clock direction, after the final installation, open the main switch and try to see if there will be water leakage.

Even if the faucet is tightened, it will still leak:

1. The reason for the water leakage at the water outlet: it is caused by the wear of the shaft gasket in the faucet. Use pliers to loosen and remove the gland, remove the shaft gasket with a clip, and replace it with a new one.

2. Causes of water leakage in the lower part of the faucet: This is caused by the wear of the triangular seal inside the gland. You can loosen the screw to remove the hoe, then loosen the gland, then remove the inner triangular seal of the gland and replace it with a new one.
3. Leakage at the joint: The cover nut is loose, and you can retighten the cap nut or replace it with a new U-ring.
If the faucet is found to have less water, it may be a leaking condition, because the water stop disk of the single-gun faucet is stuck with the sand stone. This phenomenon is still to find a professional repairer to disassemble the faucet, but if the rubber pad is damaged, it must be replaced. In general, the correct use of the faucet means that the faucet should not be rotated too tightly, so that the faucet pad can maintain a life of 7 or 8 years, but the faucet of the hot water part is easy to reduce its life due to thermal expansion and contraction. Therefore, it is generally recommended that the hot and cold pads be replaced at the same time.
