Wait for about an hour or so so that the sealant gets enough time to dry. Turn on the shower and inspect whether the leakage still persists. If you find that there is still a bit of leakage, it is advisable that you take the help of a professional plumber for further repairs.
These are more complicated as they comprise numerous parts, therefore making it difficult to exactly point out the cause of leakage. The best option is to replace every part. Remove the handle by unscrewing the connected set screw. With a pair of pliers, take the collar and cap off. There will be a specific tool to remove the faucet cam in the replacement kit. Use it and pull the rotating ball and the cam washer out. Also, remove the O-ring, springs, and inlet seals.
Next, place a thin pipe thread and wind it around the perimeter of the stem thread. Apply pressure, and with the help of your finger push these into the faucet. Tighten the nut and bolt of the faucet with the help of a wrench. After the faucet handle has been replaced and the cap refitted, the water supply can be restored. You are finally done with the repair.
Once the water supply is cut off, you can proceed to the task of repairing the faucet. Dismantle the cabinet and the counter top where the faucet has been installed. Now remove the handle of the faucet by unscrewing it from the faucet. For this, you will need a screwdriver.
