How to Use a Seat Wrench to Pull a Faucet Seat.  What is a faucet seat?  Well, it is the piece of hardware in a faucet that works together with the washer to allow the water to flow through the faucet, and to cut off the water flow when you turn off the faucet. Sometimes, if you have a leaky faucet, you might need to simply replace the washer.  We have a video that shows you how to do that here.

Other times, the problem is not the washer, but is the faucet seat itself. You may have a dented or otherwise damaged faucet seat, and you will need to replace it.  This is actually a very simple fix that anyone can do.  You just need to use a Seat Wrench, and have the knowledge of how to use the seat wrench to pull the faucet seat (which looks somewhat like a large round nut), and install a new seat.  Faucet seats are extremely inexpensive, usually less than $1 each.  

Watch this video to learn how to make this fix in under an hour, and potentially save yourself hundreds of $$ by not having to call a plumber!
