Hello my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
How long had the original ones leaked? Was this a new install that leaked from day one?
Yes, I asked some questions and have yet to get a response from you
Has this always leaked? Is it a recent install that has always leaked or was it good for some time?
The k-52655 is a 0.5 GPM aerator. That doesn't seem right.
It also seems to me that even with a bad diverter it shouldn't make it leak out of the handle. Is it leaking out of both handles?
Or is it leaking out of the diverter handle? I need more information in order to help you.
The only thing it can be is a cut or nick in this part of the diverter. I've never had an issue like you are having, however I called two co-workers who have and they replaced the cartridge and the issue was gone. Not sure why your new one is just as bad. Feel the inside for debris or a ding in the valve body?
Still wanting to know has it leaked from day one? If so I'll bet it a bad valve body.
This is where I believe it is compromised.
Are you still needing assistance?
I'd appreciate a positive rating in return for my time helping you
If we are done here, should I close the question?
