Anyone had any experience getting at and replacing the stem seal on the
spring loaded poppet valve in a Multi-Pure filtered drinking water
dispensing faucet? If you did, was it easy to get a replacement seal?
(Multi-Pure hasn't responded to an e-mail on this...)
I installed ours through the kitchen sink's back rim about 8 years ago.
Lately there's been a dribble from under the operating lever every time
it's used, leaving an annoying little puddle to sponge up.
It looks like the valve stem seal is under a little threaded piece (only
about 5/16" diameter) which the valve stem comes through. That piece is
slotted, but it'll take some kind of spanner wrench (like a slot
screwdriver with a half inch long notch up the center of the blade to
clear the valve stem) to unscrew it.
