EASY ON THE O

I no­ticed, more than once, that the two o-ring seals on the sink mixer get a bit sticky if you tighten the neck nut too much. And if you keep it a lit­tle looser, it tends to leak, or be­comes un­done. The so­lu­tion? Ap­ply a few lay­ers of poly­te­traflouroethy­lene (PTFE) tape over the seals. The seal is wa­ter-tight and the tape al­lows the neck to swivel freely without un­nec­es­sary ten­sion.
