Question: Plumbing Seats And Springs


There is no visual evidence -- to the naked eye -- of any deterioration in old seats and springs that have allowed a faucet to drip. The old seats and springs look exactly like the new replacement seats and springs.
What is the typical reason that seats and springs fail over a period of time? Is it usually the fault of the metallic spring, or the seat? Thank You.

that there are two different lengths of springs and seals, depending on how old the faucet is.
