Fix a Leaky Faucet Quickly and Professionally

You are here

A dripping tap seems like a small problem with your sink, but it can become a bigger plumbing problem if it doesn’t get fixed, or if it’s fixed incorrectly, making the problem worse than before. If you need to fix a leaky faucet, you can call Roto-Rooter Plumbing and Drain Service for quick and professional plumbing service. Roto-Rooter responds quickly to requests and we can get your faucet back to normal in no time. Many people put off calling a plumber because they think a drip is a small problem and they can get to it eventually. Book a plumbing appointment as soon as possible so that you don’t have to worry about the leak or deal with the stress of trying to figure out the problem on your own.

What You Need to Know About Faucet Leaks

While a tiny little drip seems like something that should only require an easy fix, it can actually be a complicated job. A number of things can cause your faucet to leak. Before you can fix the faucet’s leak, you need to know what is causing the problem. Unlike pipes, the moving parts of a faucet can wear down more easily with time and they may need to be replaced, repaired, or tightened. When you call Roto-Rooter for licensed plumbers, they complete the following tasks:

  • Determine what is causing the leak
  • Quickly disassemble the faucet
  • Supply any needed replacement parts
  • Reassemble the faucet so that it’s better than new

Finding the Right Solution

Fortunately, Roto-Rooter is immersed in faucet repair experience. If you’re not sure what is causing the leak, a plumbing professional will come take a look at it and get to the source of the problem quickly. Once you know what is causing the tap to leak, the repair is simple and easy for a trained plumber. A plumber will also have access to all of the different moving parts that your faucet may need to have replaced. There is the handle, the nut, the stem, the washer, and possibly decorative caps. Sometimes leaks go deeper than the faucet itself, and if that’s the case, a plumber can fix that too.

What to Expect with Faucet Repairs

Several things will happen when a professional Roto-Rooter plumber comes to your house for a repair. While the plumber is fixing the faulty valve or leaky faucet, you will have to turn off the water. If there is a direct water line you can turn off for that faucet, that’s great. If not, you might have to turn off the water for the whole house. This can be an inconvenience, but it’s necessary for the plumber to repair the dripping faucet as quickly as possible so you can get your water turned back on. Feel free to ask the plumber questions when they come to assess your faucet; our professionals are happy to share their knowledge and will make sure that everything is fixed to your satisfaction.
