Moen faucet an easy fix
Dear Glenn: I have a Moen kitchen faucet (about 15 years old) that has developed a small drip. What is involved in repairing this leak?
— Ken, Chattanooga, Tenn.
Dear Ken: You are in luck. Both Moen and Delta faucets have very easy repair kits. Shut off the water to the sink (both hot and cold). Take off the handle and unscrew the decorative fitting that covers the working parts of the faucet. Moen faucets have cartridges. Remove the cartridge and take it to a plumbing parts store so that you get an exact replacement. The replacement kit should include an O-ring, cartridge and clip. Replace all these parts and put the faucet back together. Turn on the water, and you should be good for the next 10 years.
