How to Tell When You Need a Faucet Repair from a Professional

Functioning faucets are essential to any building.

If you’re reading this, chances are you might be worried about the faulty faucets in your home or business. Even if you aren’t, it’s still good to know what to look out for just in case you do need a faucet repair. Functioning faucets are essential to any building, and their issues emerge so gradually that when you do notice malfunctioning, it can be hard to tell if it’s time for a faucet repair or a brand new installation. Here are some signs to know that you need a faucet repair from a professional plumber!

Abnormal Water Pressure

Abnormally low or high water pressure can put you in a very stressful spot, and you likely end up blaming your faucets because of it. The truth is that faucets don’t have that much to do with water pressure. Changes in water pressure can indicate more issues such as clogged pipes, water leaks, lack of water, etc. however, one way your faucet may be responsible is because it is not fixed correctly. An experienced plumber can detect an issue and conduct a faucet repair.

Leaking or Dripping

Have you noticed water dripping down from your faucet even when the handle is turned off? This is a sign that you can’t ignore. A dripping or leaking faucet in your home or business will not only result in higher water bills but also waste multiple gallons of water. Typically, high water pressure in the water lines can result in the leaking or dripping of your faucet. This will persist even if you get a new faucet, so its ideal to hire a plumber for the faucet repair instead.

Squeaky Handles

If your faucet is a bit odd, you may notice squeaky sounds every single time you move the handle. This is because of the worn-down threads at the stem of the faucet from extensive use within the faucet’s interior structure. Luckily, this issue doesn’t necessitate a faucet replacement. A faucet repair by a good plumber can make the handle work effortlessly again

Noisy or Irregular Discharge

If you start to notice water spewing out of the faucet from multiple angles, its time for a faucet repair. Irregular water discharge, like water bubbling, can be very frustrating because it spills water out everywhere. This unusual flow is because of a faulty aerator or worn down diverter valve. Replacing them can make your faucet work again. In certain cases where water discharge is accompanied by a loud, explosive sound, you should be worried.
