Wet Faucet/Counter Top

The kitchen faucet is getting a little water around where it connects to the counter top. I have felt around under the sink and the connections to the faucet and do not feel any moisture. It is almost like just splashed water from washing the dishes, but I was very carful yesterday and it still happened. Anyone have any comments or suggestions on fixing this?

First you need to make sure it is broken before you try to fix it. As you said, it is probably splash water.

You will probably have to take the faucet apart. There are some O rings that may need replacing, or could just be a loose cap. Sometimes there is some sand or sediment that makes its way up there and damages the seal.

Just a thought. Is your hands wet or dry when turning the faucet off ?

My hands are usually wet when I turn it off. I will have to ask the DW about her, but my guess is they are also wet.

If you have the goose-neck faucet it's most likely the o-ring at the base of the tube as AVid said. You can remove the neck by removing the nut at the base of the tube. The nut is smooth but you should be able to unscrew it by hand. If you can't, try some rubber shelf matting or a pair of utility gloves with the rubber dots. Lowes or Home Depot will have o-rings that will fit it.

I had the same problem and what I did was tighten the faucet from the nuts underneath the counter top. Never did the o-rings but this did work for me.

Herez what i found. Just change the faucet. Mine leaked also and when i took it off i found that they put the cheapest piece of plastic garbage they can find iN it. It looked good but all the connections were plastic. Bought a new one with brass fittings and problem solved.

I also had to replace the faucet in my 2003 Cherokee, was an easy fix and replaced it with a household "pull out head" by American Standard that I bought at our local Home Depot. Also had to do something with the hole for the pull out sprayer head so I just replaced it with a dish soap dispenser. DW loved it and it took a total of 30 min. to swap out
