How to Fix a Leaky Faucet (Spout Leak!) in a Bathroom — by Home Repair Tutor

So today I’m going to share with you how
to fix a leaky faucet. Now if you’re looking for a tutorial on
how to fix a leaky faucet that is dripping from the handle or dripping from the spout,
you can watch one here for Delta, and you can watch one here for Moen. All right. But today this one’s a little bit different. Let me show you why. Check this out. So you turn the water on, and the water leaks
right here from where the faucet is. This is a weird leak, but it’s easily fixable. All you have to do is twist off the spout. There’s a little O ring in here. This little O ring is what keeps the water
from coming back up through the faucet spout, so you have to replace this. Now I’m not in the position to replace this
today, so I tried to just reorient it and make it look better. So I would recommend replacing the O ring. But you can kind of tinker with it a little
bit to see if you reposition it, it will work better. Ratchet down on this a little bit. Turn it on, and there you go. That’s how you fix your faucet. This O ring should be replaced. But after tinkering around with it, I got
it to work right. So there you go. That’s how you fix a leaky faucet when the
spout is leaking. So again, like I said, if you’re looking
for a different tutorial on how to fix a Delta faucet, just watch this video right here. That’s how to replace the cartridge and
the seats and springs. But anyhow, I hope that you like this quick
tips video tutorial. The main point is, don’t be afraid to tackle
these things head-on because you can probably save yourself a considerable amount of money
by doing it yourself and not call in somebody else to make a small, minor repair like this
one here with a washer or an O ring. So I hope you enjoyed today’s video. Have a great day. I’ll talk to you soon. By the way if you’re wondering, this video
was shot at The Nittany Lion Inn here at Penn State.
