Leaking kitchen faucet

I have Riobel BI201 kitchen faucet.

Riobel Bistro kitchen faucet

It is leaking just above the valve, when the pipe narrows. The entire hose, spring, pipe and spout is connected via friction fitting, is a hex screw holding it in place. I can take it out, but not sure what to do to fix the leak. Plumbers tape, silicone grease?

Okay. Thanks again. I have attached a pic. Does it look like two orings on there that I should replace? Maybe replace the orings and use silicone grease?

Welcome to the forums.

I don't see any mention or indication of that pipe being removable from the base fitting.
If it's pressed in it may have been soldered.
Does it swivel/turn ?

Hi Pjmax,

Thanks for replying. Yes, it does swivel. Ya agreed, the diagram doesn't make it seem removable Maybe I broke it by removing it. There is a screw seemlying holding it in place. Once loosened is wasn't too difficult to pull it out. Would a pic of it removed be helpful?

Yes.... post a picture.

Usually with a setup like that there would be a top nut that would be removed and there would be one or two o'rings on the movable shaft.

I think you're on the right track with the O rings and silicone grease. Good luck! Steve

There are two o'rings at the red arrow.
But you said it was coming out of the riser which may mean the yellow arrow o'ring needs to be replaced too.

I haven't found any info on o'ring kits for that faucet.
