Bathroom Faucet: Leaking Around the Handle of the Faucet
Faucet Symptom-The bathroom faucet is leaking water around the faucet handle. When the handle is turned on the water leaks from the handle area.
Recommended Solution-Moen faucets are designed with an interior component called a cartridge. This part is responsible for controlling the water flow. If a faucet is leaking water from the handle, the reason is usually the cartridge. Single handle faucets will contain one cartridge and dual handle faucets have two.
