Help with bathroom faucet
Does anyone know what type of epoxy or adhesive i should use on my bathroom faucet. Its a 3 hole, the center one is a bowl made of vitreous china the brass stem has come unglued.
Maggie, Welcome to the Forum
If the 'stem' you referred to operates the sink stopper then perhaps you can take it to a local Plumbing Supply House not HD but a place where plumbers go to buy parts- look in the Phone book under plumbing supplies.
Brass or other metal parts in a sink are not glued together but are mechanically fastened. A stem or another part that appears to be unglued is either broken or no longer mechanically fastened. Now with a good flashlight get under the sink to get a closer look to observe what's happening.
wow.. had to look this up http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitreous_enamel;
so you have a sink (China Bowl) with a waste drop that's broken... plumber didn't have one on their truck... attempted to glue it..didn't work... " best responce by plumber might have been... sorry don't have this part on the truck... I can try to glue it... might or might not work.. or I can come back...with the right part...1 1/4 or 1 1/2 brass or brass with chrome plate ...sorry that would be another trip charge. what you need is a new....? ( you can replace it yourself...or find it and call us back...another trip charge)? For the $$ you paid they at least owed you a " What you need is"...
weird plumber didn't have it... common item... If I dug in my buckets I bet I could find three... in chrome... and I'm not a plumber....yes I am a hoarder... BUT... you never know when it will come in handy.... LOL.
Hope they didn't charge by the hour waiting for things to dry.
2 Channel locks, plumbers putty, Teflon tape.. sore back.. right parts... you are good to go...
