I'm installing a new sink (Vapsint brand) and stuck trying to figure out wh
y I have a leak at the spray hose connection. It's the kind of connection
with a plastic piece at the end of the hose (with a button on either side w
hich I don't know what the purpose is). The plastic piece connects to a me
tal screw on piece at the bottom of the faucet, with a small rubber o-ring
in between. The leak seems to be coming out of the top of the connection.
I did use pipe thread tape. Any suggestions what I'm doing wrong here?
Our new Moen faucet has a similar quick-disconnect , but it has the QD on
both sides , not just the hose side . The OP might try removing the teflon
tape and letting the 0-ring seal the connection . That is what o-rings do
New sink and new faucet, very nice. There's an 800 number in your faucet
installation instructions. Call them. They'll listen to your story and tell
you what you are doing wrong or send you a new spray hose. Most faucet
manufacturers really believe in customer service.
Did the instructions recommend teflon tape?
