My Eljer bathroom sink faucet has two handles and a spout. Twice I've
replaced the washer under the hot water handle. Both times the dripping
stopped for a few days and then started dripping again. It stops when I
tighten the handle but is dripping again a couple of hours later. I'm
sure I am putting the correct washer in. When does the internal unit
itself have to be replaced? Thanks for any advice.
I had a similar problem with my Crane faucet. I replaced washers,
even cleaned and polished the seating surfaces. However, too much
wear is too much wear. I ultimately had to replace the internals.
My internals cost $9 at Lowes and I made the replacement a joint
project with my 7-year-old grandson. He did almost all the work
(IOW, it's not a difficult project).
Remember that faucet internals come in Hot and Cold versions.
