The plastic faucet is probably split by the old all metal lav supplies you have on it. Replace it.

And you don't think putting new caulk around faucet base will resolve the issue??

Where in the faucet is it leaking then?

Re: SLOW Leak/Drip In Upstairs Bathroom Sink Lines, How To Resolve?


all right gents, I am GAME!!

lets do this..

I want to do it right and TIMELY.. so need your help putting it all together, i.e. replacing faucet, and adding shut off valves..

1. Faucet $10 at HomeDepot

2. SS Flex line? So basically any steel braided line right, appropriate size fittings and lenth, $5-10?

3. Since pipe coming from wall I need two 90 degree 1/4 turn stop valves correct? Any suggestions or input for Menards/HomeDepot?

4. What else would I need, plumbers putty, do I need to seal the faucet to the sink top in any way?


any and all suggestions greatly appreciated!

regards!

If this is a daily use bathroom, pick a different faucet. A $10 faucet is no bueno. I didn't see a pop up drain control on the one in your link either

not trying to be hard case here, but what good is a pop up drain?

In the 5 years i've owne this house I've not used it once on this daily use sink.. but again if I need it, i'll buy it..

That same model sink WITH the pop up drain is $20.. please advise

It looks like the one you are replacing has the pop up drain handle as part of the fixture. If you dont buy one to operate the pop up, it will stay in the down position
