hot and cold water faucets have become popular in recent years. Because they are used for cold and hot water functions, kitchen life is more convenient, so they are also very popular in the market. But hot and cold water faucets are also relatively easy to break down. For example, they leak, and we need to repair them frequently. Today, Xiaobian brings you how to do with the leakage of hot and cold water faucets in the kitchen. Let's have a look

how to deal with the leakage of hot and cold water faucet in the kitchen? 1. Press faucet

no matter what appearance the press faucet has, whether it has two handles for hot and cold water respectively or only one handle for controlling hot and cold water at the same time, it works according to some basic principles. The following is how to disassemble a press faucet and repair the dripping problem:

required tools: use these tools to deal with the press faucet &mdash& mdash; Screwdriver, penetrating lubricant, carp pliers or adjustable wrench and the pad to be replaced

maintenance step 1: remove the handle and check the parts of the faucet. Remove the packing nut with carp pliers or an adjustable wrench. Be careful not to leave scratches on the metal. Turn the spool or shaft in the same direction as when you turn on the tap to screw them off

maintenance step 2: remove the screws that fix the washer. If necessary, use penetrating lubricant to loosen the screws. Check the screw and valve element, and replace it if it is damaged

maintenance step 3: turn off the water supply, remove the small screw on or behind the faucet handle to remove the handle fixed on the faucet body. Some screws are hidden under metal buttons, plastic buttons or plastic sheets, which are clamped or screwed into the handle. As long as you open the button, you will see the handle screw installed on the top. If necessary, use some penetrating lubricant like WD-40 specification to loosen the screws

maintenance step 4: replace the old gasket with an identical new gasket. The new gasket that almost exactly matches the old gasket can generally make the faucet no longer drip. You should also notice whether the old gasket has an inclined plane or a flat one, and replace it with the same new gasket. The gasket designed only for cold water will expand violently when hot water flows, thus blocking the outlet, making the flow of hot water slow. Some gaskets can work in hot and cold water, but you should make sure that the gaskets you buy for replacement are exactly the same as the original ones

maintenance step 5: fix the new gasket on the valve core, and then reinstall all parts in the faucet. Rotate the spool clockwise. After the valve element is in place, reinstall the packing nut. Be careful not to scratch the metal with the wrench

maintenance step 6: reinstall the handle and install the button or disc back. Turn on the water supply again and check whether there is water leakage

if the faucet still drips after you change a gasket, there may be something wrong with the faucet seat. A damaged gasket may cause the faucet seat to become uneven due to wear by the metal valve core, or the deposition of chemicals in the water may form residues, which makes the gasket unable to fully compress with the valve seat

how to repair the broken faucet seat? Of course, you can change the whole faucet. Another option is to replace the faucet seat only. If you have the right tools &mdash& mdash; It is called the valve seat tightening wrench, so it is a very simple thing to remove the old valve seat. Insert the valve seat tightening wrench into the valve seat, and then pull it counterclockwise. Once you remove the old valve seat, please make sure that the new valve seat you buy is exactly the same as the original one. If the valve seat cannot be removed, insert a valve seat sleeve that can slide into the old valve seat and provide a seal. There are two types of seat rollers or grinders that can flatten worn seats. Another option is to use a valve seat roller or grinder, which is a cheap tool that can flatten the worn valve seat. Be careful not to use too long or too much force when using this tool, because the valve seat is made of soft metal, and you can easily wear it off too much

when using the grinder, first remove the faucet valve core and insert the valve seat roller downward into the valve seat in the faucet body. Rotate the tool clockwise several times with moderate force. Then use a cloth to clean the metal chips falling from the valve seat

how to deal with the leakage of the hot and cold faucet in the kitchen? 3. The sealing ring of the faucet

dripping occurs when the faucet is turned off; Leakage is caused by water flowing out of the faucet. If you see water pouring out from around the handle, your faucet is leaking; The first thing to do is to make sure that the sealing nut of the faucet is tight, but be careful not to scratch the nut with pliers or wrenches

the following are the tools you need to replace the faucet seal ring: adjustable wrench, replaced faucet seal ring, Vaseline

if you find that the cause of water leakage is not the loose nut, you need to replace the sealing ring. The sealing ring of the faucet can be a tight sealing ring composed of one or more O-shaped rubber rings, or something like string or soft metal wire wrapped around the valve core under the packing nut

when replacing the sealing ring of the faucet, follow the following steps:

maintenance step 1: turn off the water supply and remove the faucet handle

maintenance step 2: unscrew the packing nut and remove the nut and the old sealing ring from the valve core

maintenance step 3: install a new sealing ring. If you use a linear sealing material, wrap it around the valve core for several circles. If it is a sealing material such as soft metal wire, it is only wrapped around the valve core. Before you reassemble the faucet, apply a thin layer of vaseline oil on the threads of the valve core and the threads of the packing nut

how to deal with the leakage of the hot and cold faucet in the kitchen? 4. The O-ring of the faucet

the faucet in the kitchen has one or more O-rings to prevent water from gushing out around the water outlet. If the O-ring is worn, you will see water flowing out at the bottom of the water outlet every time you turn on the tap

the following tools are needed to replace the O-ring: adjustable wrench, water pipe sealing tape, and the replaced O-ring

steps to replace the O-ring:

maintenance step 1: turn off the water supply, rotate counterclockwise and remove the threaded coupling nut fixing the water outlet. Be sure to wrap the nut with adhesive tape to prevent it from being scratched by pliers or wrenches

maintenance step 2: after removing the coupling nut, lift the water outlet up and take it out of the water outlet seat. You can see these rings in the water outlet seat

repair step 3: replace the defective ring with a new ring of exactly the same size. Reassemble the faucet

this is a brief introduction about how to deal with the leakage of cold and hot faucets in the kitchen and the maintenance steps. I hope it will be helpful to you. Please look forward to more information
