Faucet plunger knob

For my regular viewers, I am back from a little crisis that happened four months ago. I crashed my personal computer and it took many months to figure out my blogger and e-mail accounts. In October 2013, I started working part-time as an associate for The Home depot. The Home Depot trains their associates very well on the building and lumber products that I am selling. My benefit is I learned even more for future posts.  

I was called by a Mr. Applehumber in Santa Clarita, California. They were selling their homes and moving up to Colorado. After the Realtor checked their beautiful home, she requested a huge laundry list of repairs. Jim showed me several sinks missing the faucet plunger, below this short post shows how this repair was handled.

This post shows the three steps to install a faucet plunger knob.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the faucet plunger knob was missing from the faucet.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows what the plunger knob looks like. This one was purchased at Ace Hardware store in Santa Clarita, California.

Step 3: Fig.3 shows the new knob was placed on the plunger faucet. Inside the plastic know are pre-drilled threads, turning the new knob counter-clockwise or left the knob was screwed onto the facet plunger metal shaft.

This part was not at any of the large building supply warehouse stores, it was lucky that this part was available at Ace Hardware, it shows the versatility of this store. The staff was very informative on how to attach the clear plastic knob.
