fixing the kitchen faucets
Our kitchen will one day one of our faucets will leak or clog and we should know the basic way to solve this problem, especially when we can\'t find a direct plumber.
To let us know what to do when this happens, here is the procedure you can follow: first step, we need to close the water on the valve.
It is usually under the sink.
After that, we continued to turn on the tap.
In this way, the water can be drained freely.
We need to make sure the drain is blocked so we can avoid small parts falling into it.
After that, we used the Allen wrench to help us release the fixing screw on the faucet handle and then remove the handle.
We need to make sure that we arrange the faucet parts in the order in which the faucet is removed.
This will help us remember what happens first when we reinstall them again.
Sometimes it may be difficult for them to complete the second step, and this part will be to remove the hood and assemble the ball and Cam.
For this we will use
We can remove the Chrome hat while wrapping the pliers teeth with tape to avoid damage to the chrome.
We can then remove the ball and Cam components now.
Step 3 now, we remove the spring by fishing out the spring and packing the parts with a needle nose clamp.
We then clean up any accumulated sand or residue inside the faucet to prevent blockage.
Step 4 this time, we will grab the buds with both hands and work back and forth so that it will relax.
After that, we took it off the tap.
We need to put extra effort into this because it can be a bit difficult to get rid of it in the first place.
We removed O-by using the wrench-
When removing the diverter, the ring and the needle nose clamp are used.
Then any sand or sediment inside must be removed.
After all the disassembly and cleaning procedures have been completed, we will now go and reassemble the components.
We press the new splitter in place and install the new O-rings.
What\'s important is that we\'re in O-rings.
It will help to withstand high temperatures and will also be easier to remove if it is damaged again.
Step 6, we put the germination back in place with both hands firmly.
We use the wrench and Allen wrench to guide us when the spring slides in place.
At the end of step 7, we now put the faucet ball into its slot and reinstall the Cam, chrome cap and its handle.
Then we turn on the water and check if there is any leakage.
That\'s how we maintain and keep the kitchen faucet from any damage.
Now, whenever the kitchen taps arrive, we can solve their problems.
