When to replace your faucet
A faucet replacement is not carried out only when the whole cartridge breaks down, a faucet also needs replacement when:
- It continues leaking even when repaired constantly
- When the counter surface or sink is damaged

- If the faucet is very old or rusty
- When you start seeing visible mineral deposits

A valve stops and starts, reduces or increases, controls the direction of water flow within the pipe and it also relieves pressure in a pipe system. It does this with different parts working together. It has a body or shell which houses all other components like the stem, gland follower and packing, bonnet, wedge, and the seat ring.
