It was cute and on sale!
It started dripping about 18 months after I got it; so I went to the hardware store and a friendly salesman told me it was very frequent with th ekind of faucet I bought and sold me a washer and spring.
I changed it and we were back in business!
About a year ago it started dripping again, I changed the washer and it continued to drip....I let it be. I didn't know what to do and didn't feel like explaining my woes at the hardware store.
So it's been dripping for a year. Last weekend since I'm already in an hardware store buying a kit to close the pool so I bought more washers and springs.
Wednesday between trying to apply for that job and closing the veggie garden, I tried my hand at changing the washer again.
So I check out the Peerless website (yes it's a Peerless faucet) and they tell me if changing the washers doesn't work, I need to change the stem....Ok now I'm swearing...oh yes big juicy swears.
So i go to Canadian Tire and buy 2 different stems (we never know) and I peddle back home.
I worked on it for 3 hours! I kept changing the stem, the washer and still dripping. Turning on the water, turning it off...!"/$%?&*(
At one point I decide to try the other stem and I forget to turn off the water, yes you read right!
It was like a freaking GEISER in my bathroom, everything was wet! The ceiling, the drapes, the cat liter, INSIDE THE DRUG CABINET! OMG!
Of course I was drenched! So I manage to close the water and dry everything off with towels. Now I have 10 wet and dirty towels.
So I decide to do a load of laundry....The washing machine DOES'T WORK! WHAT THE F****???
I try all the breakers and still it doesn't work, I'm about to cry.....
Then I think of reseting the protected outlet and guess what? the washing machine is on the same circuit!
So now the faucet has a new waser, and spring and stem and....
I guess I need to buy a new faucet....
