Common Faucet Problems for Homeowners
These are the common faucet problems that homeowners may face:
Over time, faucets can develop leaks. The most common reason for a leaky faucet is a worn-out rubber washer. When the washer deteriorates, it no longer forms a tight seal against the metal valve seat, allowing water to seep through.
It is essential to know how to identify a leaky faucet and fix it. A leaking faucet wastes both water and money if left unchecked.
It may seem easy enough to repair on your own. However, if not done correctly, it could lead to further damage and an increased repair bill.
Low Water Pressure
Low water pressure is one of the most common faucet problems. A faulty aerator, clogged pipes, or mineral deposits could be the reason for your water’s lack of pressure. If you have this problem, our experienced technicians can quickly diagnose the cause and get your faucet working again.
If you turn on your faucet and no water comes out, the first thing to do is check your home’s main water shut-off valve. If it’s in the ON position, then the problem is likely with your home’s water pressure.
Having no water coming out of your faucets indicates a much more severe problem that requires a professional plumber’s expertise. For example, there might be a problem with one of your home’s pipes or a problem with the municipal water supply.
Rust and Stains
Over time, your faucet may show rust or other mineral stains. This is usually due to water conditions in your area but can also be caused by using the wrong type of cleaning products on your fixtures.
Rust and stains on your faucet should be removed immediately, as they can cause harm to you and your household’s health. Not only are they unsightly, but they can also lead to leaks and other problems with your plumbing.
Types of Faucet Repair
Our expert plumbers are proficient in repairing all types of faucets, such as:
A ball-type faucet is characterized by a single handle that controls both the volume of water flow and the temperature. The handle sits atop a ball that regulates a mix of hot and cold water as it flows through the faucet. Over time, the rubber seats and springs inside the faucet can become worn, causing leaks. You may also see wear around the base of the handle.
Ball-type faucet repairs entail replacing the seats and springs and cleaning or replacing the O-rings. In some cases, it may be necessary to replace the ball itself.
On the other hand, Cartridge faucets have a single handle that controls the water temperature and flow rate. The cartridge is a replaceable cylindrical piece that functions as the valve seat. When you turn on a cartridge faucet, water flows through tiny holes in the cartridge itself.
To repair cartridge faucets, you must first identify the problem. If your faucet leaks, you may need to replace the O-ring or cartridge. If the handle is difficult to turn, you may need to lubricate the cartridge with the plumber’s grease. If there is a complete loss of water pressure, you will need to clean or replace the aerator.
Lastly, compression faucets are the most common type of faucet. They have two handles, one for hot water and one for cold, that control separate washer-and-valve assemblies. The valves open and close by lifting a small knob or handle.
For compression faucets, repair means having to disassemble the faucet. This is because compression faucets have washers that wear out and need to be replaced from time to time.
