To disassemble unscrew the setscrew and pull off handle. Tighten the plastic adjusting ring inside the cap by turning it with a special flat adjusting tool-or fit tow screwdrivers into the slots and cross their blades to turn the ring. If your ball-style faucet with this type of cap is leaking from the spout, first try tightening the cap with channel pliers. Still leaking? Disassemble and replace worn/broken parts. Often you need to lift out the ball and replace the rubber seats and springs on both sides of the valve. If the faucet leaks around the spout, replace worn o-rings. Replace rotating ball only if clearly worn.
For modern faucets, the truth is quite opposite though. The touch function is reliable and under normal conditions always works as expected. These faucets cannot be activated by pets, and they are helpful for families with children.
For pull-down models, the hose needs to be guided through the faucet body and spout, for touch sensitive models, there will be a battery pack that needs to be connected to the contacts.
