In response to Re: Faucet Packing Washers
: Do plumbing supply stores sell lots of sizes and shapes of faucet packing washers? Or do most people use the string packing when replacing faucet packing? Is the string packing as good as a real washer? Thank you for your time.

some plumbing wholesalers are getting rid of there small repair parts. i think it is less costly to replace a faucet sometimes than to repair it.(In some cases) you can get a roll of grafite packing and repair a lot of different faucets with it as it will form it's own gasket. running down parts takes a lot of time and hardware stores are stocking for the homeowner.
