Minox drinking water container

how to fix a leaking faucet

It's only been 2 months since we installed the new Minox stainless steel drinking water container and in that short time we've really grown to appreciate the increase in storage and attractive good looks.

The brass spigot we added to it developed a leak a few weeks ago. Once I took it apart the problem was obvious. It got overtightened once just before the leak, and I'm guessing the rubber washer got pinched and then dislodged.

It only took a few minutes to re-seat the washer where it belongs, which stopped the leak.
