Many homeowners don’t realize that their faucets are one of the most vital parts of their plumbing system. While we take for granted that we can get hot or cold water with the turn of a knob, that is only made possible by the faucets that you have installed in your home. Not only are faucets often overlooked, but they’re also some of the most frequently used items in your home’s plumbing system, making the need for faucet services even greater.
When you start experiencing problems with your faucets, whether they be in the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, or another area that relies on faucets, it’s crucial that you find a team who can handle the issue quickly and correctly. That’s why you need Schuler Plumbing.
Common Reasons for Faucet Services
According to a study published by WaterSense, a faucet in your home that drips once every second wastes more than 3,000 gallons of water each year. That means if you have three faucets dripping in your home, you could be losing around 10,000 gallons of water every 365 days.
Our team can tackle any type of faucet repair, but there are some repairs that are simply more common than others. For instance, most faucets use a cartridge-style system that uses cartridges (or valves) to control water flow. Cartridge leaks are generally caused by something as simple as a damaged O-ring.
It’s also common for faucets to require repair or even replacement based on damage caused by corrosion. Obviously, most faucets are made of metal, and when metal is exposed to water for a long period of time, corrosion is a natural byproduct. Corrosion happens even faster if you have “hard water,” which deposits more sediments in and around the faucets.
There are also times when necessary faucet repairs have nothing to do with the faucet itself. If you notice that your faucets only leak during certain times of day, or when you’re adjusting the handles or knobs, there may be a water pressure issue in play. Fortunately, our team of professionally licensed plumbers can also handle those issues.
Faucet Replacement and Repair Services
There are times when your faucet may be past the point of repair. If that’s the case, there’s no need to panic. Our team of friendly, professional plumbers can help you choose the right faucets for your home and will handle the installation process.
Arguably the most important part of this process is found in determining if you need faucet repair or faucet replacement. There are a number of factors that will determine the answer to this question, which is why our plumbers play such a vital role. Faucet repair and replacement includes everything from the pipes that go to your faucet to the faucet itself, so having a plumber who can accurately diagnose any issues is crucial.
If you’re on the fence regarding replacing or repairing your faucets, there are some things that the plumber we send to your home will consider. First of all, are you noticing more frequent issues with the same faucet? If so, you may be better served to replace the faucet than invest in another repair. They will also evaluate how bad the leak is. If it’s something that can be fixed with an O-ring replacement, you may not want to invest in a new faucet, instead choosing to repair your current system.
Regardless of the final answer that you and your plumber come to, you can rest assured that the problem will be handled professionally, correctly, and quickly. Also, you’ll never have to worry about a team member from Schuler Plumbing trying to sell you something you don’t need, as our commitment to fair and honest pricing ensures that you only pay for what you need.
Same Day Faucet Repair Services
When you have a water leak in your home, you don’t want to spend days or weeks waiting on a plumber to come to your home. Depending on the severity of the faucet leak that you’re experiencing, waiting may not be a viable option. Since faucet leaks include water dripping out of the part of the faucet that you can see as well as the parts that you can’t, it’s crucial that you understand the problems that can stem from a faucet issue. The growth of mold or mildew, musty odors, and shockingly, high water bills can all be signs of a damaged faucet in your home.
