Quick Fixes for Common Household Faucet Problems
A defective faucet isn’t just frustrating, but it causes much water waste in many homes. Emerald Plumbers offers these practical repairs that bring back a faucet’s optimum performance and resolve the dreaded leaks in the sink or tub.
A leaking faucet creates an annoying smash that resonates throughout the house, as well as squanders up to 3,000 gallons of water each annually with just a single leak per second. Faucet leaks spike your water bill and possibly result in overflows or water breakdown.
The issue is typically due to defective washers in the fixture. As they are made of silicone, faucet washers corrode over time and need to be replaced. When you are handy, this fix is simple DIY work. When you are not, it’s recommended to seek assistance from a professional plumber for fast and efficient plumbing repair services.
Loss of Water
After some time, water minerals build up in the faucets. It is common especially in houses without water filtration systems. Most standard faucets come in circular valves in their units to strain debris passing through the fixture. When the valve is too dirty, water can’t pass through your tap.
New faucets may bear such a valve, however, still comes in different chambers where minerals and debris build-up. In order to troubleshoot the problem, inspect the shutoff valve, and see to it that it is open. Once that is not the problem, the faucet needs to be taken apart and valves and chambers cleared from stuck dirt and minerals. It is essential that the faucet is reinstalled properly so it functions as intended. A highly-trained plumber knows professionally how to carry out this job. Thus, this guarantees your faucets are reinstalled and maintained accurately to bring back normal water flow.
Low Water Pressure
Is your faucet giving thin water pressure? Minerals and dirt can usually cause low water pressure in a faucet. Its sprayer diverter gets blocked and prevents water pressure. Also, the aerator is susceptible to this buildup and could be the reason for low water pressure.
Clean it’s aerator and sprayer diverter. It is generally the solution applied for better water pressure. When it does not bring back the pressure, and you are still experiencing low water pressure in other plumbing components around your house, a major issue is most likely developing.
