You are probably interested in repairs if you have a relatively new or expensive faucet. Fortunately, a quick fix by a plumber may be all that it takes to remedy many faucet problems. In particular, leaks and drips are often fixable. After a careful inspection, our plumbers can provide a faucet diagnosis.
You may need a new O-ring, gasket, or valve. It’s also possible that tightening a connection or adding some lubricant to a squeaky handle will fix the issue. Whatever the repair need, you can rest assured that our plumbers will do the job effectively and efficiently.
However, there are some cases in which faucet replacement might be a better decision than faucet repairs. If you’ve had your faucet for many years, it may be time for an upgrade. In general, replacements are advisable for models that are 15 years old or older. Also, consider putting in a new faucet if you’ve had to call for repairs several times recently.
Another reason for faucet replacement is that you may start using less water. Newer models conserve water compared to older styles. The typical flow rate for most modern faucets is 2.5 gallons per minute or less.
