Hi, I’m Chris Tavano for Tundra Restaurant
Supply. In today’s episode I’m going to show you common
leaks to your pre-rinse assembly and how to troubleshoot and maintain them. (music) The most common areas for leaks on your pre-rinse
would typically in a few common spots, either your hose itself, one of the two washers
on either side of your handle, or somewhere around the face-plate itself. Here’s how we fix those. The first leak you might see is actually coming
from your stainless steel hose. If it’s leaking through this, just replace
the hose itself. Your next spot might be somewhere around the
handle whether it be at the bottom of the handle or the top of the handle. Keep in mind in both of these spots of the
handle, there’s a washer. So if it’s leaking in one of these spots,
you’re most likely going to replace that washer. So careful when unscrewing this pre-rinse
because the washer just sits there, and there’s that washer, so if it’s leaking on that side, that’s the
washer that’s going to need to be replaced. Same thing applies to the bottom of the handle. If it was leaking there, go ahead and unscrew
the bottom of the pre-rinse, right in there, that washer will need to be
replaced. Next common place gets a little bit tricky
because this next leak, these next two leaks both involve the face-plate
itself. If you look at this seam right here from the
top, if it’s leaking through this top seam, we’re going to want to replace this bumper
itself. Unscrew this face-plate, be sure not to lose
the screw, so this entire rubber bumper will need to
be replaced if it’s leaking from the top of that. Just put it on, get your Phillips head screw,
pretty easy right there. If you’ve identified that your leak is not
coming from the top of the bumper and is actually coming through the water jets
itself, you’re most likely going to need to replace
this bonnet in here. Here’s how you do so. You’re going to remove the handle with a Phillips
screwdriver, there are two Phillips screws so you’re going
to need one to anchor the other on the other side. Once you remove that handle, go ahead and
begin to unscrew this piece. If you notice, this valve is very similar
to the valves that we had in our previous plumbing video of identifying faucet leaks. Keep in mind that your odds are that if it’s
leaking out of the face of the spray nozzle itself, you’re most likely going to need to be replacing
the seat washer right here, or the entire unit itself. However, if it’s leaking from that valve stem
assembly in the first place, it’s most likely this black washer. Again, inspect this whole unit and the integrity
of the washers and valves in themselves and just replace the whole unit if need be. I’m Chris Tavano for Tundra Restaurant Supply and that’s how you identify and troubleshoot
common leaks to your pre-rinse assembly. Please comment below or if you have any other
