I had a persistent leak in my kitchen faucet and could not get the plumber hired by the building to properly fix it. Drip, drip, drip constantly- it was driving me crazy! Not to mention we've been experiencing a severe water drought here in California so it just seemed like such a waste. It had been leaking for so long that over time I had to learn to do some crazy stick-shift moves to minimize the leaking every single time I used the faucet. Got to a point that after some searching around in the internet, I was able to determine that I had a Delta faucet.
When you look at the faucet, it is baffling at first in determining how to approach the repair. I looked under the sink cabinet and saw nothing that could be tinkered or adjusted. But after some research I determined these were the parts I need. Mind you, I have ZERO plumbing experience. I learned that in order to make the repair- you start off by removing the front red and blue colored button badge on the face of the single arm. That will reveal a small bolt with an allen wrench-type head that you unscrew. The rest is pretty easy, although you will need a self adjusting groove joint plier to remove the base once the arm is detached which I also got at Home Depot.
Now the leak is gone and the faucet is working as good as new! Inexpensive, solid repair (and my manager reimbursed the cost of materials!) Thanks Home Depot!!
It was easy to use to repair my faucets. I have a double sink bathroom vanity. But only one faucet was dripping. I ordered 2 kits and just repaired both of them since I just knew that the other one would start dripping soon.
