What should I do if the faucet is crooked?

Posted on November 04 2022

The faucet is the place where the tap water is received in the home, and the switch and the amount of water can be controlled as needed. However, in the process of using it, we often encounter the situation of twisting the faucet too far and twisting it crookedly. This will affect the appearance, and may even cause water leakage or poor water flow. So what should we do at this time?

What should I do if the faucet is crooked?

The first thing to do is to see if the crooked faucet can be used normally. It would be best if it can be properly connected to water and used. We can also try to screw it clockwise with a wrench. If it can't be screwed, don't screw it hard, otherwise the faucet will be screwed. Or go back a little counterclockwise, but you need to observe whether there will be water leakage. If there is no water leakage, it is fine.

If none of the above methods work, just remove it and reinstall it. But the premise is that you must first turn off the water valve, and then turn on the faucet, don't rush to turn on the faucet. Then we have to prepare the raw tape and wrap it around the thread counterclockwise, as many turns as possible, about 20 turns are the best. After the raw tape is rolled up, re-install the faucet and turn it to the right direction.
Why is the faucet crooked no matter how twisted it is?

Each thread does not match exactly, and if it is over-tightened or over-tightened, it will bend. If the tightening is positive and there are no leaks, no tightening is required. If there is still water seepage, please wrap more raw tape. If the raw material tape can not solve the problem, the twine can be used. If not, wrap a few more turns of the normal wire before wrapping the stock tape.

What to pay attention to when choosing a faucet

  1. Look at the surface first: the faucet body is made of brass and bronze. After polishing and forming, surface treatment such as chrome plating is carried out. Ordinary faucets have strict requirements on the main body and surface treatment process. After the neutral salt spray test, they should not rust within the corresponding time. Therefore, in the process of choosing a faucet, pay attention to its surface and observe whether there are obvious pores, erosion, spots, etc. There are many kinds of coatings on the surface of general faucets, such as: galvanized, titanium, spray paint, etc. Generally speaking, the thickness of the coating is better. The surface of the coating can be observed with the naked eye to see if it is shiny. The imported faucet has a thick coating, which is not easy to fall off and oxidize.
  2. Gently turn the handle: to see if it is light and flexible, and if there is obvious blockage and heaviness. Whether there is an obvious gap in the switch, it is generally considered that a non-slip faucet is better. For inferior faucets, the gap is large and the sense of blockage is large.

How to remove rust from faucet

  1. Take a fresh-keeping bag, put a small half bag of white vinegar, then put it on the faucet, fix it with a rubber band, wait for a few minutes, you will find that the rust stains are dissolved by the acetic acid, rinse it with water, and the faucet will be as bright as new.
  2. For those who have ketchup at home, just take out the ketchup and apply it to the rusty spots. It only takes 8 seconds to gently wipe with a rag, and the rust stains are swept away!
    3. The acidity of lemon juice can also completely dissolve scale and rust stains. Uneaten lemon slices can be used to wipe down faucets and metal fixtures in the bathroom in just 5 minutes.
