I'm trying to fix this faucet in my mother's house.
The center "spout" piece has developed a small crack in the area where the drain plunger/closer rod is supposed to go. That piece rotates off and behind it looks like a threaded 1/4" pipe. I didn't expect home depot to have a new spout.. so I did the next best thing and took some of that magic plumbing epoxy putty and put it in the hole.. it slowed down the leak.. but its still dripping (only when faucet is on).
This thing is probably older than I am.. and I know the right thing to do is to rip it all out and replace it with an 18" vanity and a quality faucet from Moen, Delta, etc.. but this is a rental house.. my mother is getting a great deal from the landlord (my boss).. so I try to help out where I can. If I do replace the vanity.. I couldn't live with myself if I didn't patch up the floor with new tiles. and you know how that goes.. one thing leads to another and you have no walls left.. and this isn't my house to do a complete bathroom reno! haha
The perfect solution would be if I found another one of these spouts and could just put it on to stop the leak.
