Leaky Faucet Repair
The average family wastes more than 680 litres of water from household water leaks every year. A leaking faucet isn’t just annoying—a small leak increases your water bill and, over time, can cause considerable water damage to your home. Faucets with broken knobs or loose handles are also potentially more than a nuisance, and shouldn’t be ignored.
Prevent water damage and save money by calling Mr. Rooter® Plumbing at (855) 591-0128 for professional faucet repair.
Types of Faucets We Repair
Faucets fail for many reasons, such as corroded washers, or worn-out O-rings, valve seats, or seals. No matter what kind of faucet you have or where it’s located, we have the experience and expertise to fix it.
We can repair:
A kitchen faucet leaking at the base is a common problem caused by an O-ring that’s dried out and cracked. A leaky kitchen faucet can make a wet mess of the whole sink area. As hard water dries on the faucet, sink, and counter, it can also leave ugly mineral deposits that can be difficult to remove.
Hose bib spigots can last many years without problems. But over time, the washer and packing inside the faucet can wear down and no longer be able to form an effective seal. At this point, you may notice a constant drip, no matter how hard you turn the knob. Left unresolved, an outdoor faucet leak can cause damage to landscaping or the home’s foundation. It’s much easier and more affordable to get the outdoor faucet replaced now.
Touch on/off faucets
Touch faucets are a fantastic kitchen upgrade that can simplify cleaning and cooking tasks. When your hands are full or sticky, you can activate the faucet by tapping it with the back of your hand. Repairing these sensitive devices should always be left to a licensed plumber.
When a bathtub faucet is leaking, it often reduces the shower head’s water pressure. Squeaking sink handles, inconsistent water flow, and drips are a few common issues that can develop with bathroom faucets. Most of the time, these problems can be repaired. If you like your dripping faucet and want to get it working properly again, contact your local Mr. Rooter to whip it back into shape. We can perform bathroom sink, shower, or bathtub faucet repairs.
Utility sink faucets
You need that utility sink to be ready to handle any dirty challenge you bring to it: rinsing paintbrushes, soaking filthy clothes, or scrubbing serious grime from your hands. So when your utility sink faucet begins to sputter or leak, get it repaired by a plumber you trust.
When you call Mr. Rooter to fix your faucet, we’ll find the necessary part to fix it. We’ll also fix kitchen faucet sprayers, repair broken knobs and handles, replace valves, and more.
How to Detect a Faucet Leak
Not all faucet leaks are obvious. It’s easy to use your water meter to determine if your household has a leak. Take a reading from your water meter, don’t use any water for several hours, and then take another reading. If the meter moved, it means you have a water leak somewhere!
