My faucet is leaking how do I fix it?

The most common leak is a drip from the end of the spout. This drip can usually be fixed by replacing your stem or cartridge, which turn on and off the water in the faucet. You need to determine whether it is the hot, cold or both sides causing the leak. You can then remove the stem or cartridge, which lies beneath the handle and locate a store near you that carries our replacement parts, or you can call Customer Service at 800-888-4458 to obtain information on replacing the stem/cartridge. For warranty information, please refer to your warranty cards sent with the faucet.

How do I replace my stem or cartridge?

The first step is to shut off the water supply to your faucet. The next step is to remove the index button on your handle, screw, and then the handle should come off. Note how the cartridge is in place, direction, etc. Then remove the cartridge and place the new cartridge the exact same way as the other one was positioned. Replace the handle components and turn the water on to test to make sure that everything is working properly. If you have any problems, please call Customer Service at 800-888-4458.

Can I replace my faucet myself?

Yes. With every Sayco/Briggs faucet shipped out, we send installation instruction in the box. These instructions are easy to read and understand. If you misplace these installation instructions we have them available on this web-site for you. If you have any difficulty installing the faucet, please give Customer Service a call at 800-888-4458.

I installed a tub and shower faucet and I am not getting water out?

The most common installation mistake on a tub and shower unit is the installation of the body tee. Check the product to make sure the word "TUB" embossed on the body tee is facing down towards the floor. If the word "TUB" is facing up toward the ceiling, you have installed it upside down. If this does not solve your problem, please call our Customer Service Department at 800-888-4458.

How do I determine the model number of my faucet?

The most common place to find the model number is on the label of the box you purchased the faucet in. (We suggest you write this number on your warranty card for later use if you disguard the box). If you do not have the box or paperwork, try scrolling through our faucets found on this website for a visual identification. If you still cannot locate the model number then please call our Customer Service Department at 800-888-4458.

My faucet has low water pressure, how do I fix this?

The most common reason for low water pressure is the buildup of debris in the water line or aerator. You may need to flush out your faucet. Step One. Flush the aerator by removing it and then cleaning any dirt from the screens that may be causing a blockage. Replace the aerator and test the faucet to see if pressure has been improved. If the pressure has not improved, try step two. Step Two. You can flush your faucet water lines by first shutting off your water supply at the stop. Remove the index button of the handle, screw, and handle.
