Common Faucet Problems

Your faucets are connected to the building’s main water lines. If the plumbing system breaks or clogs, you might not be able to get the water you need. Worse yet, the water is contaminated or leaking somewhere else.

Leaky Faucets Could Cost You

Leaky faucets are one of the most common problems you can come across with your home plumbing. Whether it’s a dripping faucet or a wasteful stream of water, leaks can increase your monthly water bill. Depending on how much water is leaking, it can even lead to water damage!

Leaky faucet repair is usually fast and inexpensive. A professional plumber will identify the part causing the leak before completing the necessary service to restore proper water flow.

Missing Hot or Cold Water

Nearly any faucet can provide both hot and cold water. Choosing the temperature is generally dependent on the faucet’s design, with models featuring either one or two handles. Fixing a broken handle can sometimes resolve the issue.

But when the problem is a total lack of hot water, the issue might be a little trickier to troubleshoot. This could be a sign your water heater is damaged; in which case a professional plumber should be contacted.

Poor Water Pressure

Rather than a leak, a broken faucet decreases water pressure and may even prevent the flow of water entirely. Not only is this frustrating, but excess pressure may cause additional problems deeper in your plumbing system.

The specifics on how your plumber will fix the issue requires knowing what type of faucet you’re using. Sometimes taking care of the issue is as simple as cleaning the affected component. Other issues can be traced to the seal that separates your faucet from the water supply.

Keep in mind that this likely won’t happen often. So when the faucet isn’t to blame, your plumber should then start to look for things like corroded pipes and clogs (as these also cause the water pressure to fall). Even partially closed valves will drop the water pressure, resulting in weak flow.

What to Know About Faucet Repair

Once we’ve verified there’s a problem with your faucet, there are a few additional pieces of information that can help simplify repairs. Remember that severe or widespread damage may make new faucet installation a more cost-effective option. Otherwise, it won’t be long before you’re struggling with another plumbing problem.

1. Determine the Type of Faucet

Effective repairs start with knowing the type of faucet you use. This doesn’t mean whether it’s a kitchen faucet or a bathroom faucet, but what internal components are in place to deliver potable water. Our expert plumbers have adequate experience with different faucet types so they can recognize yours quickly, starting repairs sooner.

Compression Faucet: This design is the oldest type of faucet still in widespread use today. It is designed with a rubber washer and two handles to provide adequate water of the correct temperature.

Cartridge Faucet: Offered in both one- and two-handle designs. A single-lever design adjusts water flow by raising and lowering the valve inside the handle.

Ball Faucet: The most common type of single-lever faucet. As the lever is moved, a plastic or metal ball moves within the faucet, allowing water to flow. Simple chambers within the ball blend hot and cold water to create the desired temperature.

Ceramic Disk Faucet: Another single-lever design sometimes confused for a ball faucet. The disk works similarly to a cartridge faucet, which is raised or lowered to provide water flow. By comparison, a ball faucet moves in a spherical direction.

2. Shut Off the Water Before Finding the Affected Part

As soon as they’re aware of what model of faucet you have, the plumber’s next step is to pinpoint where the problem starts. Most designs are split into two sections, the faucet body and one or two faucet handles. Knowing the type of problem they’re dealing with can make things easier.

Whatever the problem may be, disassembling the faucet is typically necessary for repairs. A decent repair kit should have tools like slip joint pliers or a basin wrench for reaching the internal components.

3. Figure Out If a Part Needs Cleaning or Replacement

Every now and then, a problem is fixed by simply reaching the specific component and giving it a thorough cleaning. But in case of significant damage, replacing it is typically best. These small pieces aren’t expensive, so don’t worry about the cost of a new part for the spout, O-ring or any washers.

This could be a little tougher for special faucets, such as an outdoor garden hose.
