Regarding the repair of water leakage at the faucet joint, the cause of the water leakage is nothing more than damage to the water-stop tape on the faucet part (fixing screw). Therefore, just use a wrench to remove the faucet and re-roll the new water-stop tape where the screw is fixed. The following are the maintenance steps:  First, fasten the faucet first, and use the wrench to turn the faucet counterclockwise. Turn to remove. Second, turn the threaded hole outwards, and roll the threaded part clockwise with wind-printed tape 5-6 times.

Check whether the faucet has been adjusted and bolted clockwise with the water bolt wrench. After the final installation is completed, turn on the main switch and try to see if there is still water leakage.

Even if the faucet is fastened tightly, the reasons for still leaking:

1. The reason for the leakage of the water outlet: it is caused by the wear of the axial gasket in the faucet. Use pliers to loosen the gland and remove it, take out the shaft gasket with a clamp, and replace it with a new shaft gasket.

2. The cause of water leakage in the lower part of the faucet bolt: It is caused by the wear of the triangular gasket in the gland. You can loosen the screw to remove the bolt head, then loosen and remove the gland, then take out the triangular gasket inside the gland and replace it with a new one.

3. Water leakage at the joint of the connection pipe: The cap nut is roughly loose. At this time, you can re-tighten the cap nut or replace with a new U-shaped gasket.

If the faucet is found to have less water, it may be leaking, because the water stop disk of the single-lance faucet is stuck with sand and gravel. For this phenomenon, you should ask a professional repairer to disassemble the faucet for cleaning, but if the rubber pad is damaged, it must be replaced. Generally speaking, the correct use of the faucet means not to rotate the faucet too tightly, so that the rubber pad of the faucet can maintain a life of 7 or 8 years. However, the hot water part of the faucet tends to reduce its life due to thermal expansion and contraction. Therefore, it is usually recommended that the hot and cold rubber pads be replaced regularly at the same time.
