|In response to Re: Types of faucet washers|
Theoretically, the number should be the diameter, but it isn't. And the S, M, L, and XL indicate that it is smaller or larger than the one with just a number. The correct size washer will fit the recess with little or no forcing.
: I went to replace the washers on a leaking faucet toda,y and I noticed that in addition to the size of the washer some washers also have alphabet letters on them. What's the difference between a washer that says "1/4" and one that says "1/4L"? How do I know which type to use if the old washer I removed doesn't have any type of designation on it? Also, should the new washer fit easily into the the seat "cup" or should it be a tighter fit where I have to jam it into place? I've never replaced a faucet washer before so I'm uncertain of the details. I understand the basic concept of what to do, though. Thanks for any help and advice.
