Solutions for time delay tap leaks:

Delay faucet is also called push-type faucet. Regardless of its appearance, it works according to the basic principles. The following is how to disassemble a push-type faucet and repair the dripping problem.

Prepare tools: screwdriver, penetrating lubricant, slip joint pliers or adjustable wrench and the pad to be replaced.

1. Turn off the water supply and remove the small screws on or behind the faucet handle to remove the handle fixed on the faucet body. Some screws are hidden under metal buttons, plastic buttons or plastic sheets. As long as you open the buttons, you will see the handle screws on the top. If necessary, use some lubricating oil to loosen the screws.

2. Remove the handle and check the parts of the faucet. Use large slip joint pliers or an adjustable wrench to remove the packing nut, being careful not to scratch the metal. Turn the spool or shaft in the same direction as when you turned on the faucet to unscrew them.

3. Remove the screw holding the washer. If necessary, use lubricating oil to loosen the screws. Check the screws and spool, if they are damaged, replace them with new ones.

4. Replace the old washer with an identical new washer. New washers that almost exactly match the old washers generally keep the tap from dripping. You should also pay attention to whether the old gasket has a bevel or flat, and replace it with the same new gasket. A gasket designed only for cold water will swell violently when hot water flows through it, blocking the water outlet, and slowing down the flow of hot water. Some gaskets can work in both hot and cold water, but you have to make sure that the replacement gasket you buy is exactly the same as the original one.

5. Fix the new gasket to the valve core, and then reinstall the parts in the faucet. Rotate the spool clockwise. After the spool is in place, reinstall the packing nut. Be careful not to scratch the metal with the wrench.

6. Reinstall the handle and put the button or disc back. Restart the water supply to see if there is still a leak.
