Default How the heck do you repair a Brizo?

Looked at a drippy kitchen faucet and replaced a couple of flappers today.

Never seen or heard of a Brizo before! Itís the cold side, but I always replace both. Anyhow, how do you remove the handle on this POS?!! I know the tricks with 8Ē spreads and tub deck mounts.... but this one has me scratching my head!

I can see how to remove the spout, but not the handles. No set screw, no caps with hidden screws...

They just pull off, no screw or anything. Brizo is just another brand name owned by the same company as delta and hansgrohe. The cartridge is a semi generic 1/2" ceramic cartridge almost exactly the same as many grohe cartridges.


The cartridge part number is rp36265.

I agree, they should just pull off. Iíve only installed Brizo Lav faucets and itís been a few years. If I remember correctly itís a strong magnet that you screw into the top of the cartridge and set the handle on the magnet.

Donít make the mistake I did, I put the magnet on the cartridge and didnít put the screw in it. I set the handle on for a dry fit to see how it looked. Damn magnet stuck hard in the handle and itís a pain in the ass to get out.

I didn’t even think about yanking on the handles! It’ll be 2-3 weeks before we can get back there.

Never worked on any, not around in my time. Reading the post I must wonder "what is the product made from?" Brass, bronze, good stainless steel -- non of which are magnetic. That leaves cheap stainless or regular steel. I'd say junk!. As a product for plumbing.

Normal materials from what I can tell. There is an insert inside the handle that gives it the magnetic properties.

That's not true. The short answer is that some stainless steel is magnetic and it isn't just because it's cheaper. Personally I disagree with the idea of "cheap stainless". They are all pretty expensive. You either pick the correct stainless alloy for the job or you don't and some happen to be more expensive. Obviously some companies will choose cheaper grades but in that case you should just be checking the alloy before you buy that product. Even non-magnetic stainless steel can become magnetic after cold forming.





The long answer: https://www.scientificamerican.com/a...gnets-work-on/
