    If the water is leaking from behind the wall of the faucet, that would mean that the faucet has split. Usually this will happen when there has been water left inside of the faucet in freezing temperatures. If the faucet has been split, it will have to be replaced, but the 455 Apache is no longer made. When replacing a faucet there are two things you will need to know. The first thing you will need to know is the wall thickness. The best way to find the wall thickness, is to remove the stem, and measure it from end to end. Once you have that measurement you can subtract 4 inches from the total length. This will give you the wall thickness. For example if you have a 10 inch stem the wall thickness would be 6 inches. The next thing you will need to know is how the faucet connects to the main plumbing. There are many connection types, so you will need to know the connection size, and how it connects to the plumbing in order to get the correct faucet.
