Leaking Bathtub faucets
Posted by Chuck on November 22, 2001 at 20:33:06:
I have an older bathtub with Gerber faucets that both ( Hot and Cold) leak - only when I turn the water on. I guess I need to repack the bonnet nuts but there are chromed tubing sleeves that go through the wall and prevent me from getting to the larger (rear) nut to remove the cartridge. Do bonnet nuts tighten up like garden hose outlets (to tighten the packing)? That might fix my problem without disassembly - I can get to the smaller bonnet nut with a deep-well socket.
