Fix Leaking Faucet in Orlando, FL
Having a leaking faucet can be both annoying and frustrating. It will cause odors, high water bills, and the constant 'drip drip drip' sound that tirelessly continues throughout the day. Fortunately, there are Orlando plumbers that have a few methods to fixing this issue.
Replace the Fixture
Perhaps the most obvious of fixes, the plumber will be able to locate the issue that is causing the faucet to leak and advise a complete replacement of the faucet fixture.
This will usually only happen when requested or if the fixture itself is too far degraded for repairing to be of any help. However, not every sink is compatible with certain types of faucet, and getting the correct type requires the aid of a certified and trusted plumber.
Repair the Fixture
A plumber will easily be able to discern what type of faucet is being used and get all the required parts to fix it. For example, faucets with one swiveling handle that can be turned to either hot or cold comes in three different common varieties: ball, cartridge, and ceramic-disk. Each, of course, demands its own parts to replace.
Then there is the compression faucet that has separate handles for hot and cold; most often a small rubber washer placed inside the handles themselves are the culprit for the leak, but a plumber would be able to verify and fix issues with any type of faucet.
Fixing the Lines
A more serious cause of leaking, and one that is most notable for being able to smell it before seeing it, is when the lines running water to the faucet are leaking. This can be quite serious since the leak can continue on for a long time without being noticed, and the water can destroy and degrade the cabinets and even floor beneath them.
An Orlando plumber will find out exactly where the leak is at on the line, inspect for any surrounding damage, and replace any punctured or corroded line that is causing the leak.
Of course, a plumber that comes to inspect for a leak will not just do one of these previously mentioned tasks, but they will go through the entire inspection of deciding if it needs to replace, repaired, or if there is a hidden issue with the water lines.
Since these can be dangerous and complicated repairs, a local Orlando, FL plumbing company, like Shamrock Plumbing & Drain Cleaning Inc., needs to be called at (407) 292-8881 to ensure further damage is not done!
