I have a faucet in my kitchen almost identical to the one listed
Basically, it's leaking. I thought the leak was at the tip of the
faucet, and all I need to do would be to replace the screen, washer
and nut...but the more I think about it... When I push down on the
lever shown in the photo that shuts off the water to the tip of the
faucet, the water doesn't drip or leak anymore. This kind of
indicates that if I replace the washer "or something" just below this
lever, it will stop the leak. First off:
1) I'm not sure if this is indeed the problem. How do I determine
the source of the leak?
2) If it is indeed the section just below the lever, how do I take it
apart? I see what seems to be a hole for something like an allen
wrench, but I don't think it is exactly the same.
3) Can you purchase a screen,washer and nut assembly at a hardware
store without buying a whole new faucet? Not even sure if this will
stop the leak.
Any advice would be helpful.
