Should I use silicon gel to stop a faucet leak?
Asked Oct 13, 2007, 03:52 PM
HI, I need some advice -
A plumber replaced 4 of our faucets with new ones. Problem - all 4 leaked if water was ever on top of the sink, e.g.. When washing the top of the faucet, water dripped below. Plumber returned once and tightened all connections, but they still dripped. He then declared that I was unreasonable since I wouldn't agree to simply use care and not allow any water on top of the sink. I wanted him to fix the problem, but he returned my check instead. My problem is how to best remedy this situation. A friend suggested that I put clear silicon gel around the faucets, thus creating a seal. Is this a good idea or should I hire someone to remove the faucets and install them correctly? I'm not sure that I can do it myself. Thanks for your help. Cudie
