This product by the name Fabulous Blaster available at home depot comes in a 11 oz spray can. Spray the rusted area and follow directions on the can. I had to spray the ares 4-5 times 3 to 4 hrs apart. finally i had to soak the area and leave it over night. It is hard to soak it because the liquid just drips down.what i did i packed the area with tissue covered with plastic wrap, did work after i had to soak it couple times.
Good luck

So I'm trying to fix my leaky faucet. I bought a Mannsfield parts kit to replace all the internals but I can't even get that far. The screw holding the handle on is seized up. I have tried to use a screwdriver, socket, and a channel locks to hold everything while loosening the screw but no luck. All it does is spin, and not easily.

Does anyone have any suggestions for this? I'm not opposed to replacing the whole spigot if need be but I don't want to damage any plumbing in the wall by wrenching on the unit until I have to.

I have an ASEE 1019 faucet that leaks from the top, I believe it is called the anti-siphon valve. Is this easy to fix? I am not sure which brand it is, but it has a large "M" on the side. Any tips you have will be greatly appreciated!

Today I tried to fix the ASSE 1019 faucet. Changed the 2 washers put it back together and it doesn't leak anymore lol bill was quite a bit more than usual. Unfortunately it doesn't work now hahaah, but no leaks, don't understand it, thought I put it back the same way (thought it was right way), but won't work now. Any suggestions from anyone?

In addition to the washer at the end of the stem, there may be o-ring within the housing of the stem which may need replacing. I have fogotten how I got to this o-ring on my NIBCO faucet but it was not difficult. NIBCO customer service sent me the replacement washers free of charge. Impressive.
