Did you know that your kitchen faucet is used from ten to thirty times each day? And that’s not even including how many times your bathroom faucet is used. Your water faucets are some of the most used, and often overlooked, appliances in your entire home. From doing the dishes to washing your hands and brushing your teeth, your family depends on having reliable, fully functioning faucets.
When you start to have issues with your water faucets, Sullivan Super Service is here to help. We will send one of our plumbing experts out to assess the situation and walk you through all of the solutions available. Still not sure if you should give us a call just yet? Here are some signs that you are in need of faucet repair.
Have you noticed your faucets dripping after you turn them off? Have you seen water damage at the bottom of the faucet or under the sink? Both of these signs mean there is a problem somewhere that needs to be fixed right away.
Your faucet is supposed to provide you with a strong, steady stream of water. If your faucet is giving you more of a light rain or dribble, chances are you have a clogged aerator or a screen that covers the tip of your faucet.
Weird sounds such as clicking, clanking, or screeching coming from your faucet could mean several different issues. It’s best to call a professional rather than attempt to diagnose the problem yourself.
This is one of the more obvious signs. If components such as your handle aren’t working anymore, you might want to consider a replacement.
If your faucet handle makes a squeaking sound, there is a good chance your faucet stem is suffering from wear and tear. Repairing this issue requires taking the faucet apart and is best left up to a skilled plumber.
Two of the most common types of faucet damage stem from rust and mineral deposits. If you notice a build-up of either of these on the surface of your faucet, you need to schedule an appointment for a plumbing expert to take a look.
The number one problem with household faucets is the valve. Sediment from the water builds up and deteriorates this important piece, which in turn, causes leaks. Are you asking yourself if you should worry about calling a plumber to fix a leaky bathtub faucet? The answer is yes, you should call them even if that leak involves an occasional drop of water. Here are some additional reasons why you should never wait to have a leaky faucet repaired.
You wouldn’t think that those extra drops from your faucet would cause much of an increase to your monthly water bill, but in reality, fixing just one leaky faucet can save almost 10% of an average homeowner’s annual water bill.
Just one tiny leak from your faucet can put additional stress on your plumbing system causing drain clogs and overflows. The water damage can also lead to deteriorated caulking and grout which can result in water leaking through your floorboards and ceilings. It is an awful lot of unnecessary damage caused by one faulty faucet.
According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), leaks in an average household can waste up to 10,000 gallons of water each year. To put it into perspective, that is how much water it takes to wash 270 loads of laundry.
