Leaking Faucet Repair
A leaky faucet seems like water torture. The constant drip throughout the day and overnight is the sound of your money going down the drain. It may not seem like much, but with a drip every other second, you’ll be wasting over 1000 gallons of water in just one year. When you consider the average fish tank hold 20-30 gallons of water, you realize that your drip adds up. Faucet repair stops it fast.
When our plumbers handle faucet repair, we go straight to the seal. The type of plumbing fixture you have, may have a washer or an O-ring. We carry both with us and can replace them quickly. If the seating is deteriorating or has buildup, it will affect the way the washer or O-ring lies. This can be a cause of a leak. Buildup is commonly seen in homes with hard water. Fortunately, seats are also easily replaced.
While many homeowners have tried to handle faucet repair on their own, many find they don’t stop the dripping. It’s a common misconception that tightening the handle will alleviate the water seepage. But drips happen when the washer or seat are not functioning properly. By tightening the handle, more pressure is being added to the washer and seat, which can worsen the drip.
While faucet repair is a simple process, sometimes your fixture may be too old and worn to bother with repairs. A repair may fix the current problem, but it may not be able to prevent another one from happening soon. Faucet replacement is still a rather affordable option that gives you a brand new, leak-free faucet.
When you decide to go with replacement over faucet repair, you can use this opportunity to get a stylish and more efficient fixture. Most new faucets on the market are designed for maximum water conservation. Since this feature is found in most new models, you can find something within your budget and still take advantage of the savings.
