How to stop a leaky faucet before it starts leaking?
Usually, the cause of a leaky faucet is a faulty washer. Washers may be replaced time and time again and still not fit properly to stop the leak. That's why the best solution is a preventative one: buy and install a washerless or cartridge-based faucet in the first place. With these faucets, you don't need to worry about replacing worn-out or ill-fitting washers. Their advanced, one-piece construction means greater reliability and better performance. Moen understands this, so you will only find washerless faucets sold by Moen.
A Cartridge Faucet Offers Other Advantages
The washerless cartridge faucet eliminates the leaks associated with washers. It also features a one-piece, self-contained assembly. Fewer parts mean that there are fewer things to go wrong. Replacement with the cartridge is easy - just take out the old and drop in the new without the hassles of many complicated components.
Can I replace a two-handle model with a single-handle faucet?
In most cases, yes. In both the bath, mounting hardware and other flexible hookups will let you replace two-handle models with a single-handle faucet. If you're concerned about existing holes in the sink, single handle faucets are available with deck plates (also known as escutcheons) to provide an attractive covering.
I'm concerned about the quality of my drinking water - should I choose one of these filtering faucets?
One of the most convenient ways to get great tasting water is available at the touch of a button. There are a number of filtering faucet systems now available, (several even install the same way as a regular kitchen faucet), or as separate water dispensers that affix to the sink. Either way, these will save you time running to the store as well as significant money over bottled water in the long run.
