Very often, we have dripping faucets at home. Sometimes, we have a faucet that does not work, even if the plumbing in the rest of the house is working normally. These two problems are only two of the most common plumbing problems that you can have in any plumbing system. If you need to make some faucets repairs, we strongly recommend you to seek the help of specialized plumbers in Charlotte NC.
In this article, we present some faucet repair tips that you should consider in any case.
If you open the faucet and no water comes out: unmount the faucet, take off the closing valve and clean it. Then, use a wire to remove any clogging from inside the faucet. The cause may also be a clogging in the closing valve. Check the valve is working properly and if there is rust or any other strange element.
If the faucet is dripping: Unmount the faucet and take off the closing valve. Check the rubber washer for deterioration or any sign of cracks or crevices. Check if the threads are well tightened or if there are cracks inside them.
If the faucet is blocked and you have low water pressure: If the problem persists when you use both, hot and cold water, you may have accumulated lime scale deposits inside the pipes. That’s normal in time. The solution for this problem would be taking off the faucet filter and cleaning the dirt accumulated in the filter and inside the faucet.
