Leaks more right after faucet is turned on, but a little all the time.
I am not handy enough to remove faucet from underneath (to change gasket IF that is the problem). Right now, can't afford to call a plumber or replace the faucet. (On the latter, I am waiting to replace a lot of chipped tile and get the whole counter regrouted so I can have a wall-mounted faucet put in.)
After recaulking recently around the sink area, I note that the water from leaky faucet softens and practically dissolves the caulk behind the faucet. So much for thinking I could caulk around the base. The "plumbing" guy at OSH heard my story and recommended plumbers putty.
Does NG think plumbers putty would hold the line until I can afford a permanent solution?
Or is there some kind of gasket I can form around the base of the faucet that would keep the water in?
