Disc Faucets

These faucets are inexpensive and easy to fix. Most problems with disc faucets are worn out rubber seals. These are simple to replace though, and don't require many tools.

Fixing a Disc Faucet

1. Turn off the water supply to your sink. The shut-off valve should be under the sink.
2. Pull the handle up as far as it will go.
3. Using an allen wrench, loosen the tiny screw underneath the handle. Don't take the screw out - just loosen it enough to allow you to take off the handle and cap.
4. Two screws should be securing the faucet cartridge. Loosen these screws and remove the whole cartridge.
5. Take out the inlet seals, which are the two small seals. Then, take out the outlet seal, which is the large seal. Put in new seals of the same type.
6. Scrape out any dirt or deposits from the holes in the valve seat.
7. Put the cartridge back in, with the seals lining up with the holes.
8. Put the faucet back together.
