I know! Call a plumber!
Out where we live, that is not always as easy as it sounds. So we first tried to remedy the situation ourselves.
Last week Hub tried to dismantle the handle to see if he could repair/replace any worn out parts. He was stopped "dead in his tracks" by parts that would not budge.
As the handle is set for cold water, he turned the hot water handle back on below the sink so we can still use our dishwasher. And we can use the sink, but who wants to haul water from somewhere else? Isn't that what my grandma did before she got running water in her house?
Well, we do have a faucet and very small sink on our beverage bar that is a few steps from the main sink. And we have the large utility sink located just outside the kitchen across from the washing machine/dryer.
So while we wait for the new faucet to arrive from Amazon so that we can search for a plumber, we have to improvise by using either the tiny or giant sinks that are a few steps away from the kitchen workspace.
No real inconvenience, I guess, compared to my grandma having to haul water in from the well or the pump.
