Cartridge faucets are the latest household utilities and one amongst the most widely preferred faucet technologies. They usually do not dysfunction, however, continuous load on the faucet can result in damage of the O ring inside it. This ring is a rubber ring that is fitted into a circular casing. You usually cannot see it, unless you take out the aerator. You will need to repair the cartridge faucet if this ring breaks or gets damaged, in order to stop leakages and drips. The only way to repair a cartridge faucet is to replace the O ring with a new one, or completely replace the cartridge with a new one.
In the storage area beneath your sink, there would be an attachment nut. Loosen it with the help of a wrench.
Certain devices are available with shut-off valves and some are available with an extra attachment for water filters. You may even find those which do not get clogged due to sedimentation known as anti-clog aerators.
The most common cause for a faucet to leak is a worn out washer. Doing the repair yourself will save you on plumbing costs. For this task, you need to keep some spare cloth, screwdrivers, towels, newspapers, and a knife on standby. Cover the floor using towels and paper, so that the water does not collect on your flooring.
