That could be any number of brands, but based on popularity, I'd guess
either Delta or Moen. Both companies offer repair kits at hardware stores &
home centers. Hold a small mirror beneath the spout and you may see the
brand imprinted. You need to identify it. Try visiting www.moen.com. Look at
the top left of the page and see if the trademark symbol looks like what you
see on the faucet knob. Good luck with Delta - they don't seem to have a web
It's odd that your faucet is leaking this quickly. There are a number of
1) Abrasive debris in your pipes. Unscrew the aerator from one of your sink
faucets and see if you notice anything unusual, especially little bits of
white plastic. A couple of water heater makers have had problems over the
past 6-7 years with their plastic dip tubes crumbling. This happened to
mine, and it ruined the cartridge in my Moen tub faucet. ( By the way, Moen
sent new parts, even though the problem was in no way connected with their
product. That's a hint, in case you replace another faucet in your house).
2) Cheap piece of crap faucet. :-) The Chinese have arrived in the plumbing
business. Find out what brand you've got.
ive heard that a good rule of thumb is that the better the name of the maker
is relieved/imbossed into the fixture, the better the fixture. ones with no
identifying marks on them are usually crap. even the big names make crappy
cheap fixtures with no logo embossed in the metal.
of course there are exceptions.
