How To Repair A Dripping Delta Faucet

How To Repair A Dripping Delta Faucet, is an article that will walk you through the process of changing the parts that need to be changed in order to eliminate that pesky drip. Service calls of this type can be not only a nusuance but quite expensive. The average plumber now charges between 70 and 150 dollars per hour and a significant savings can be had if you tackle this repair yourself.

First Things First

Before we can begin any faucet repair the water to the unit must be turned off. This is usually done right under the sink with two shutoff valves, one for cold and one for hot. If there are no valves under your sink then you may have to shut off the entire house main to perform your repair. If the whole house is shut down then the upstairs faucets will have to be opened after the water is shut off to relieve the vacuum and empty the lines.
