When all of these things have been addressed, move on to opening your fixture and taking a look at the problem. Often, compression faucets are leaking due to a problem with the valve seat washers. The problem with the seat washers is that in order to get to it, the plumber has to remove several parts, including the handle, handle screw, and a packing nut, which often takes a specific wrench or pliers set to remove. When all of these items are taken off of the fixture, the plumber can replace the seat washer, coating it with some nonstick material.
Now locate the shut off valve, which is usually situated beneath the sink. If you don't find it there, then go out of your home to find it; it may be situated at the water meter. Take WD40 and spray it on the valves to loosen them a bit and make your job a bit easier. If you find it hard to grip them, wear gloves or use a towel piece.
Plumbers may also have to address mineral deposits in faucet fixtures. Some use vinegar-based mixtures made from home materials, others rely on commercial products found at hardware stores.
A single-hole faucet is very popular in today's market. It is easy to use and contains a single handle that is convenient since it controls the water pressure and temperature with one lever. Furthermore, there are many marvelous designs that will fit any bath decor.
