Types of Faucets We Repair
Faucets fail for many reasons, such as corroded washers, 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 needed to fix it.
We can repair the following:
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. Some countertop types, like untreated granite or wood, can even be damaged by water over enough time.
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. If left unresolved, an outdoor faucet leak can cause damage to landscaping or the home’s foundation. Get the outdoor faucet replaced now and avoid expensive repairs to your foundation and landscaping.
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. When your touch faucet leaks, call a plumber. These sensitive instruments need the touch of a professional.
When a bathtub faucet is leaking, it often reduces water pressure from your shower head. Bathroom sinks can also develop issues such as squeaking handles, inconsistent water flow, and drips. Most of the time, these problems can be repaired. If you like your faucet but just not the dripping part, contact a Mr. Rooter Plumbing location nearest you to whip it back into shape. We can perform bathroom sink, shower, and 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 dirty 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 Plumbing 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. When you aren’t sure if you have one, 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!
Don’t think a small drip is a big deal? Use our water drip calculator to see how much water (and money) is going down the drain. Some unseen leaks can ruin under-sink cabinets and the flooring below, adding to the total cost of a dripping faucet.
