|In response to Re: faucet compresion washer life|
: I seem to have poor luck with the life of faucet washers in my shower. The normal life seems to be only 3 months. I have replaced the seats but to no good effect. What can I do to resolve this annoyance. ?
: Is it possible that water pressure is too high ?
: Any leads on a solution will be much appreciated.
If you replace the seats along with the washers they should last longer than 3 months. depending on usage maybe 6 months to a year. If you replace the brass seats with Monel seats, The seats will outlast a lot of washer changes (and the washers seem to last longer). I never had much luck changinging just the washer and keeping the old brass seat.
I'f your going to stay in this house for a while, it's worth it to swap the faucet for a washerless.
