    Default New American Standard faucet leaking

    I'm installing a new American Standard single lever, single hole, bathroom faucet. It's a cool thing with a cable actuated stopper. I put it all in and it seemed to be working until I saw drips coming down the supply lines. The lines are factory installed up into the faucet body. I confirmed it's not somehow getting through the hole in the counter top (as from water splashed up top and going around the gasket at the faucet base). Is there anything I could be missing here? All I can think is that the thing is faulty...

    Some faucets can leak where the aerator screws into the faucet and will leak under the lavatory like yours is doing. Or it could just be a defective piece of crap. Goodluck to you.

    I checked the reviews at the Home Depot site and most people complained of leaking. So, it's a defective piece of crap...

    That is one reason why I, and most plumbers, do NOT buy our faucets at HD or similar stores. There are too many times when they are defective and we do NOT get paid for taking the faucet out, returning it for a new one, then installing the new one, and hoping it does not happen again. We buy our faucets, including American Standard, from wholesalers so we do NOT get the defective units.
