Leaky faucets

My faucets are leaking at the handles but there aren't any screws in the handles so I can't figure out how to get them off to replace the washers. Any suggestions?

There may be a ring nut below the sink and counter. Did you look there?


Could it be that the washer is located within the water spout and not the handles?

No, I haven't looked under the sink but I will this weekend.

Have you tried just pulling the handles off? Maybe they're push on/pull off handles

Chances are that the screws are under the the accent cap on the handles. try pop'n those out, then replace the whole valve, they're really inexpensive

I don't think there are any screws under the accent caps. The handles really tool like a single piece. I think JiffyLube may be right, just try to pull them off. I'm going down to the boat tomorrow so I'll give that a try.

Usually the screws are under the accent caps like you say, at least the ones I've come across.

Yeah, most the ones I've seen either pop out or twist out, then you pull the handle off and have access to the valve, but then most the stuff I've delt with is obsolete

I'll be interested in hearing what ThirdCoastSailor has to say about his facets.

We went out sailing in the bay yesterday, and before we went out I checked the bilge for more water. No more water in the bilge, so I guess I was right about the water heater leaking...add that to my list to fix.
