Kitchen Faucet Repair and Replacement
According to studies, kitchens use the second highest amount of a home’s daily water usage, second only to bathrooms. That means having a reliable supply of water in your kitchen is one of the most important aspects of getting the most out of the “heart of your home.” Consider your kitchen faucets one of the unsung heroes of your home’s plumbing system. When things are working correctly and you don’t need kitchen faucet repair or kitchen faucet replacement, you probably don’t think much about the dependability of those appliances. However, when something goes wrong, it won’t take you long to realize that you need to get the issue resolved as quickly as possible.
Fortunately, the team of professionally licensed plumbers who make up Schuler Plumbing have seen it all and done it all when it comes to kitchen faucet repair services. Not only are they familiar with every make and model of kitchen faucet, but they also have access to the best tools in the industry.
Common Reasons For Kitchen Faucet Repair or Replacement
Understanding when to choose repair or kitchen faucet replacement can be difficult. Before we get into how to decide between the two, we should probably address some telltale signs that something is wrong with one of your kitchen faucets.
The most obvious sign that you need kitchen faucet repair services is found when your kitchen faucet constantly drips. According to the United States EPA, a faucet that drips one time per second can waste 3,000 gallons of water. Those 3,000 gallons are enough to provide water for 180 showers! The same study teaches that 10% of homes have leaks that waste around 90 gallons of water each day. That totals 32,850 gallons of water every year. Obviously, not all of those leaks stem from kitchen faucets, but some of them do. If your home has a leaky kitchen faucet, you need to schedule a repair or replacement.
Unfortunately, every faucet leak doesn’t make itself as obvious as a drip in the kitchen sink. There can also be problems under your counters, where it’s much harder to see. Fortunately, there are other ways that you can spot a leaky kitchen faucet. Make sure that you keep an eye out for rust around the base of the faucet. Rust occurs when metal fixtures come in constant contact with water. You should also make sure that you’re aware of any strange, musty odors coming from around your sink.
When it comes to choosing between repair and replacement, things can get a bit trickier. Fortunately, the Schuler Plumbing team member who comes to your home can help you make the right decision. No, the plumber that we send to your home will never try to sell you something that you don’t. Instead, he or she will present you with the information that they gather from your leaky faucet and let you make your own decision.
Reliable Professional Kitchen Faucet Repair and Replacement
When you’re choosing a plumber to handle all your kitchen faucet needs, there are several things that you should consider. First of all, how long are you going to have to wait? When your kitchen faucet isn’t working, it’s crucial that you find a plumber who is going to show up and get the issue resolved quickly. You need your kitchen faucet for a variety of reasons, so waiting for days for a repair just isn’t an option. Secondly, and even more importantly, you need someone who can get the job done the right way. Everyone who shows up with a toolbox isn’t equipped to handle your kitchen faucet needs. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, you want someone in your home who is going to act professionally.
