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.
Shower handle problems are similar to all other common faucet handle issues. They require replacement either when they become old or start leaking. You can either replace the entire handle or simply replace the rubber gasket in the assembly, depending on your problem.
The next step is to fix the new faucet. Take a screwdriver and begin slowly fixing the new faucet stem to the base that you extracted. Fit it perfectly. Then, beginning with the last part that you removed, fix back everything in reverse order. If there are extra spaces in the wall after you have fixed the new faucet (which should not happen if you have bought a new faucet of the same size), you can seal them up with good quality putty. This will prevent any leakage of water.
Once you are done with all this, run the water for a couple of minutes to reaffirm if the joints are fine. Mostly, there would not be any problem.
