Ceramic-Disk Faucet Repairs
Disc faucets leak mostly when the inlet and/or outlet seals wear. They can also leak if the inlet and outlet are clogged with sediments. Discs of a disc faucet normally don’t often wear out too quickly. They are long lasting. The leaking and dripping problem occurs mostly when the seals fail. Replace the worn seal with a new one to fix the problem.
Make sure that you buy seals that match the existing original one or they may not fit.
Push the faucet handle back to access the set screw. Remove the screw and lift off the handle. Remove the escutcheon cap, unscrew the disk cylinder mounting screws and lift out the cylinder. With a blunt screwdriver, lift out the neoprene seals from the cylinder (if the seals are damaged, replace them) and use distilled white vinegar and a plastic scouring pad to clean the cylinder openings.
Rinse thoroughly. Then replace the seals and reassemble the faucet. Move the handle to the “on” position and very slowly turn the water back on—the force of the returning water can fracture the ceramic disk.
If you’re replacing the entire cylinder, which seldom is necessary, merely set it in place and secure it with the new mounting screws.
