Working faucets are an important function for our bathroom and kitchen. We need them to turn on the water to clean dishes, to take a shower, and to wash our hands, so the faucet’s condition is incredibly important. But how do you know if your faucet is in good condition or when you need faucet repair? Here is when you really need to repair your faucet.
Low Water Pressure
There are two pieces of the faucet that can cause low water pressure, the aerator and the diverter. The aerator can be found at the tip of the faucet and if there is build up of minerals and sediment, it can block the water from coming out of the aerator. The diverter controls how much water comes out of the faucet. If it’s blocked or clogged, it can cause low water pressure. Another issue of low water pressure can be the water supply, but having a professional plumber come check out your faucet will determine what kind of faucet repair you need.
Having a leaky or dripping faucet can not only be annoying, but it can also increase your water bill. One of the ways a faucet becomes leaky is due to the seal on the faucet. These are usually the washers or ceramic taps. They both form a seal when the tap is turned off so water doesn’t go through. If they are worn, it can cause the faucet to become leaky. Call a plumber to remedy this and find out what kind of faucet repair you need.
