Having trouble fixing your leaky faucet? Maybe it’s time that you take a break and put down the wrench. A leaking faucet can be a pain to your water bill and peace of mind, but sometimes installations or repairs can be difficult. If you are trying to fix a leaking faucet, make sure to call a professional from Roto Rooter to handle the task for you.
Diagnosing a Leaking Faucet
If your faucet has started leaking you probably already noticed a couple symptoms. For one, you may have already noticed water pooling below your faucet. However, this water may dry and leave behind warped cabinetry or floorboards if the water continues to drip and dry before you can even notice.
If your faucet continues to leak from the head of the fixture then the issue may lie in the faucet unit itself. Since there are many components to a faucet, it is best to call a professional to handle the repair as soon as possible. If the dripping, or leaking, is excessive and uses too much water, then you may want to consider turning the water valve off below your faucet. Many bathrooms and kitchen sinks already have this valve and is easy to locate. Once the water is turned off, call the experts at Roto Rooter to take a look for you.
A Leaking Faucet Could Mean a Bigger Problem
If your faucet continuously leaks, then you may have a bigger problem in your pipes. For example, the water pressure on your property may be too strong for your faucet, or plumbing, to handle. Since this issue can stem from a number of causes, you may want to have a camera inspection performed to look deeper into the problem.
If you are facing any issues with your faucet, then contact the experts at Roto Rooter as soon as possible. We are available for any questions or concerns that you may have. Even a leaky faucet can turn into an emergency plumbing repair if not addressed immediately.
