I've disassembled it, O-ring looks OK, spacer seal looks OK.JA: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?Customer: About 3 weeks. Started very slowly, now dribbling out. Found the black O-ring on the brass stem, but also found bits of a white or grey ring, maybe square cross section, when I pulled the faucet body.JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: Sure.JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: I don't know why there should be water under the faucet body in the first place, since the valve directs water back down the tubing to the spray hose. Does this leak indicate a leaking valve or spacer?

Any suggestions?
