Leaky Danze Kitchen Faucet -- Help!

devilsdueFebruary 27, 2011

Hi everyone,

I have a Danze Parma D405558 faucet in the kitchen (found the manufacturer's diagram here: http://danze.com/products/pdfs/D405558_ip.pdf) It has a spout that swivels horizontally (left/right) and it's leaking right at the lines where the swivel/spout assembly joins the body of the faucet (basically part 7 on that diagram.) The faucet is only a year old, so I really don't want to have to replace it.

Is this something I can repair myself? What parts should be replaced? Or should I just give up and get a new faucet that doesn't break after only 1 year?

I'd really appreciate any help!

The o-rings that are identified as item #8 on the drawing are the most likely culprits. If you remove the spout, there will be one upper and one lower one the barrel section. You can probably find suitable generic replacements at the hardware store. Clean all internal surfaces and apply plumber's silicon grease to the o-rings when reassembling.

Is replacing O-rings something a non-handy person like myself can do?
