    A metering faucet fails when you push the button and the water flows but never turns off. I've tried to rebuild dozens of them and no matter what I do I always end up having to buy a new cartridge. If anyone knows the secret to refurbish the cartridge it would save me time and the customer money.

    I just had an idea. I'm going to stretch the spring out and see if that works.
