    It's easier to just replace the entire assembly.

    I have been talking OP through all the steps and giving him guidance for a couple of hours now over the telephone.
    At this point he is purposely not listening and just trying to troll his leaking sink into some long drawn out saga.
    Every time I show him or tell him a step he hits more spice and totally forgets everything going on.

    Advice for stupid Republicans.

    Now, Democrats want to actually fix things. Here's how:

    First, shut off the water supplies under the sink (both hot and cold). Then, relieve pressure by lifting faucet handle. There will be a set screw on the handle possibly hidden. Before doing any repairs, make sure to place stopper or towel in sink to prevent losing any parts down the drain! Loosen set screw on handle (probably requires Allen wrench) and remove handle. Then, using adjustable jaw pliers (with a rag to protect chrome) unscrew the cap (lefty loosey) and remove the ball. Inside you will find two rubber cups with a conical spring under each. Remove and inspect for any minerals. Now would be a good time to pour vinegar into the area to dissolve any crusty minerals. When minerals are all dissolved, replace the rubber cup and springs with new and reassemble. Turn on waters and test. Enjoy!


    PS: I actually just now watched the video and they say to replace the ball assembly. I've made this repair numerous times over the years and have never had to replace the ball assembly myself.

    I went to the store the guy said it's a cartridge sink and to take it apart and bring it in and they will match cartridges to fix it.

    seems legit

    It's only about $17+tax for ALL the internal parts. You can get a brand new assembly for about $70.

    That's what they were used for, until people figured out you could use them to turn on the water.

    Why are you the one making repairs on your apartment?

    That should be their responsibility and they will hold you responsible for any damage you cause by fixing it yourself.

    Is this at least a ground floor apartment so you don't ruin the person's place below you when you release a flood?

    the water is off but I still don't know how to fix this fucking retard sink

    it's a pull out style with a cartridge

    I don't even know where to start though I think maybe if I unscrew the faucet sprayer head from the hose, I have no god damn idea.
