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 isn’t safe or healthy for daily use.

Leaky Faucets Could Cost You

Leaky faucets are one of the most common problems you can come across with your home plumbing. Whether you’re dealing with 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. One of our plumbers will find the part causing the leak before either repairing or replacing it for proper water flow.

Missing Hot or Cold Water

Your faucets provide both hot and cold water. Striking the right temperature balance depends on the faucet’s design, with models featuring either one or two handles. Fixing the handle can often resolve the issue.

But if your problem is a lack of hot water, the issue might be more complicated. Missing water entirely could mean the 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 the additional pressure can result in other problems deeper in your plumbing system.

How your plumber resolves water flow problems requires knowing what type of faucet you’re using. If you’re lucky, resolving the problem will be 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 will look for other issues 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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 extensive 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. We don’t mean whether it’s a kitchen faucet or a bathroom faucet, but what internal components are in place to deliver potable water. Our plumbers have enough experience with different faucet types so they can recognize yours quickly, beginning the repair process that much 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: Available 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 prevalent type of single-lever faucet. As the lever is moved, a plastic or metal ball moves within the faucet, allowing water to flow. Small 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. These faucets use a valve resembling a cartridge faucet, which is raised or lowered to provide water flow. In contrast, a ball faucet moves in a spherical direction.

2. Shut Off the Water Before Finding the Affected Part

Once they know what type 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 possess tools like slip joint pliers or a basin wrench for reaching the internal components.

3. Verify Whether a Part Needs Cleaning or Replacement

Sometimes a problem can be fixed by finding the malfunctioning component and giving it a thorough cleaning. But if the component is cracked or broken, 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.
