    What brand is the faucet? Most faucets 6yrs old have a cartridge type faucet that is easily replaced with a screwdriver. Mine is a Price-Pfister. I found out the toll free number, called them, and they sent me a free replacement cartridge, including installation instructions.

    you need a new cartridge for the faucet. Look on the faucet for the name of the maker, go to a plumbing supply store and ask them for a cartridge for it. Follow the directions that come with it.....get someone to turn the water off before you take it apart. Simple job !!

    There are a number of the way you may take care of 'em. Use slug bait pellets to kill as many slugs as achievable outdoor and so decrease the numbers accessible to flow into the homestead. The pellets would properly be scattered thinly or placed in small thousands under tiles. The instructions on the packet touching directly to dealing with slug pellets and the risk-free practices of kin animals could be accompanied. The pellets would properly be offered from backyard centres or hardware shops. although, a recognize warning -the pellets not in basic terms kill slugs yet charm to them, they should not be used indoors. in case you comprehend the place the slugs are entering into, in simple terms run extremely copper tape throughout your door way (they sell it in maximum nurseries to maintain slugs from window containers) & it extremely is environmentally friendly too! in case you may not discover copper tape, copper foil (from the craft save) or any variety of copper will do. you're able to even run a small strip of copper roof flashing (avail at hadware shops) throughout your threshold, your window sils or throughout your porch steps. you may try putting salt around the sting of the bathtub or use a lager catch. placed beer in a bowl. The slugs love the stuff and that they're going to flow slowly in and drown. protecting them out of the home is your suitable wager. purchase some caulk and plug any hollow you come across to assist save them exterior.
