Specializing in Leaky Faucet Repair, Bathtub and Kitchen Faucet Replacement, and More!
Over time, pieces in our bathroom and kitchen faucets wear down, including
discs and seat washers. This can cause you to have a leaky faucet. Although
the drips may seem like a minor problem that you can put off for another
day or simply ignore, one leaky faucet can waste about five gallons of
water per day! In addition, the constant water and moisture can stain
your sink and rust your fixtures, creating the need for faucet replacement.
If you'd like to repair a faucet yourself, knowing which type of faucet
you have can help pinpoint problem areas:
Compression faucets have washers and seals that can fail under constant pressure; they are
relatively simple to replace.
Disc faucets leak when sediment builds up in the faucet inlets, or when the the inlet
and outlet seals wear down.
Cartridge faucets leak when the cartridge needs replaced, or when the O-ring that cushions
the cartridge stem wears down or breaks.
Ball faucets are what most kitchen faucets fall into. Leaks can occur from either improperly
adjusted ring tension or worn cam gaskets/spring-loaded rubber seat assemblies.
