How to fix a disc faucet (Page 2)


Step 3. If your faucet leaks under the handle, remove the three neoprene seals from the underside of the disc cylinder. Bring them to the hardware store and find matching replacements. For a leak out of the spout, you need to replace the entire cylinder.

 

Step 4. If you are reusing the cylinder, clean the water inlets, scouring with a toothbrush and white vinegar if they are crusty.

 

Step 5. Lightly coat the new neoprene seals with heatproof grease and insert them in the appropriate openings in the cylinder. The seals will be slippery and youíll need to contort them a bit to fit the shapes of the openings, so be sure to do this over a clean, light colored surface so you donít lose the seals.

 

Step 6. Insert the cylinder and secure it to the faucet body with the cylinder screws. Reattach the retaining nut. Reattach the handle, then turn on the hot and cold supplies and test the faucet. Remove the aerator from the spout to allow debris to escape.
