So I mentioned above that there are necessary materials you need, these are; the knife(preferably small), the screwdriver(choose one that suits your faucet) and the bathtub washer. Like the army always say, 'You can't go to war without being ready' - that is of course, you have to bring your guns or grenades with you. If you already have the materials, then good, if you don't, go to your local plumbing store. After you have them let's shoot some rounds, er.. I mean fix some leaks.
Now follow this procedure thoroughly:
The water supply.
Yes, I guess you've thought about that too. Before going about the job, cut the water supply to the tub system first. You don't want water to continue dripping while you're at it, the plumber doesn't want that either.
The screw that suits for you.
There are different types of faucets, now it is essential to use a screw, the correct screw to remove the handle of your faucet. After trying to remove it, you may realise that you need to remove the insert of the handle. You can use the small knife to do this.
Unfastening the handle
This can be quite challenging, unfastening the handle off the wall is the next thing to do after removing the insert. Now you might just as well be a patient plumber in doing this because some faucet handles are tightly secured to the stem. You can always use boiling water to speeden up the process.
You're the right washer for me
You should always remember, that in purchasing a washer, you should make sure that you buy one that is exactly identical to your old washer. After all, you don't want to buy a new bathtub for your new washer right? If you're already sure that the washer is the same in size, go ahead and replace the old one.
The finishing touches
Hoorah, you've come a long way, or maybe a short way because that was easy. Nevertheless you were close to calling a plumber though. Now return everything back to their original place, you can begin with the handle in doing that. It is important that you tighten the handle well, but it is more important that you don't put it too tight, I know you still want to use it later. Then for the last step, place the handle insert back into place.
To confirm that you've done a great job, turn on the water supply to check whether the leak is still there. If you don't see any leak, or drip for the matter. Congratulate yourself, and yes you can dive into your tub.
