    It is NOT a Delta, it is a Valley faucet.

    I also replace the cartridge, which most hardware and big box stores have. It is white and shaped somewhat like a kids toy top.

    I do not replace the seals and springs and THEN detemine if it is still leaking. Once I have it apart I do the whole thing because people are paying me for my time, NOT to take it apart a second time and then change the cartridge if necessary. The bottom of the plastic core can develop a concave surface over time.
