Start by taking the handle off. Do this by removing the decorative cap and the handle screw. The cartridge may be fixed in place with the help of a threaded retaining cap. If there is one, use small pliers to remove it, and simply pull the cartridge out. Take a utility knife and cut old O-rings off. Apply some plumber's grease on the new O-ring and reassemble the whole faucet.
Faucets with ceramic disc valves are easily identifiable by their single lever over a wide cylindrical body, and these can be operated with a mere th turn of the lever!
Brushed nickel faucets are electroplated, which means that nickel is applied over brass. They shine less due to this nickel coating, because of which fingerprints and watermarks are not highlighted or visible on the faucet. During the 1930s, nickel went out of fashion because the coating started to come off; this problem was fixed using PVD or Physical Vapor Deposition technology. This technology makes the faucets costlier than the other types, but it has also made them of very good quality, meaning they hardly need to be repaired, and do not tarnish easily.
