Grease / Lube on O-Rings (RP25)
When I replace the RP25, O-Rings on my Single Handle Kitchen Faucet should I use grease / lube on them and if yes what kind?
Thank you for your question, Phil! Our o-rings and seals are pre-lubricated at the factory. We do not recommend adding extra lubrication.

I have a Model 174-WHWF faucet and it`s difficult to get to turn off completely unless I push all the way down then turn slightly to the left or right
It also leaks from the top of the lever if the lever is pulled or pushed. Would the RP-25 O rings fix this? Thanks
Hi Terry, Thank you for your question. Replacing the RP4993 seats and springs, and the RP61 cam assembly in addition to the RP25 o-rings should solve all of your faucet issues. The RP3614 single handle repair kit has all of the components that you need to repair your model 174-WHWF faucet.

We have a Delta 100LF-WF faucet around 7 years old in which we added a water filter at the end of the spout, so that it is a little heavy at the end of the Spout. It leaks water just below the Delta Bonnet Nut when you turn the water on. I can push up on the end of the water spout and it stops leaking. What parts do you recommend I replace to get working like it did when it was new, and to handle the weight of the water filter?
Hi Paul, Thank you for your question. Changing out the RP25 o-rings that are underneath the spout and insuring that the cap is tightened properly are the steps that you can take to try and solve the leak issue. Here is a link to the parts breakdown of the model 100LF-WF to help with your repair.
