How to Fix a Leaky Kitchen Faucet Yourself?

Fixing a leaky kitchen faucet can be a manageable DIY task, saving you time and money on professional repairs. Before starting, identify the type of faucet you have: compression, cartridge, ceramic disc, or ball-type. Turn off the water supply and cover the drain to prevent losing small parts.

For a compression faucet, typically the culprit is a worn-out rubber washer. Remove the handle, unscrew the stem, and replace the washer. Cartridge faucets may require replacing the entire cartridge, which can be found at Variation by Bajaj World. For ceramic disc faucets, the fix often involves cleaning or replacing the seals. Ball-type faucets might need new O-rings or seals.

Always inspect other components like O-rings and valve seats for wear and replace if necessary. Reassemble the faucet carefully, turn the water back on, and check for leaks. If problems persist or you encounter difficulties, it's best to consult a professional.

Regular maintenance can prevent leaks and extend your faucet's lifespan. For high-quality replacement parts or a new faucet, visit the Aquant Authorized Dealer in Surat. They offer a wide range of options to suit your needs and budget. Remember, while DIY repairs can be satisfying, complex issues may require professional assistance to avoid potential water damage or further complications.
