Faucet Repair And Replacement
Do you have a faucet that drip that won’t go away no matter how much you tighten? You may need your faucet repaired. Our faucet repair service will get your sink or tub back in working order. Faucet drips are caused by a rubber or composition washer within the faucet itself hardening and cracking over time. Tightening may stop it from leaking or dripping, but it is only a temporary fix and actually worsens the issue at hand.
This action increases the strain and damage to the washer, making the breakage and drip worse over time. The simplest solution is to have the washers replaced and the structure rebuilt through faucet repair. Waiting actually leads to a greater cost as, due to the increased damage over time, more and more parts of the faucet become damaged. At that stage, it is more cost efficient to just replace the whole faucet rather than complete a faucet repair. Give us a call today at (512) 267-1188 at the first sign of faucet drip for our expert faucet repair services. No worries. We’ve got you covered.
The best way to maintain your washers before needing a faucet repair is to avoid turning your faucets on quickly. Try and open the faucets gently to give these washers time to respond gradually. Sudden jerks can cause them to crack more readily and creating the drip in the process. Something else you can do is monitor your faucets and drains for a sort of white substance around them. This is mineral build up from the water. You can clean these off the area by allowing your sink and faucet to soak in vinegar overnight and gently scrubbing with a toothbrush. If you have this mineral build up, you may also want to have your pipes looked at to ensure the minerals are not building up within the pipes themselves. We offer a preventative maintenance plan to ensure you are covered against any unforeseen plumbing failures.
