The sound of a dripping faucet can be tuned out over time, but the amount of money it wastes can’t be ignored. When a person has a faucet that continues to drip even though they’ve made sure it’s completely turned off, it’s time to contact a plumber for a dripping faucet repair. The repair might be done by fixing the plumbing underneath the faucet or the homeowner might opt to have a new faucet installed.
The dripping might be due to a part that isn’t secured properly and, therefore, is not allowing the faucet to be shut off completely. Even with a small drip, this can lead to hundreds of gallons of wasted water. The plumber will be able to tell if something needs to be tightened or a small part replaced to allow the faucet to work properly once again. They’ll typically be able to fix the part at that time, although with less common brands they might need to order a part. However, once they have the right part, repairing it is quick.
In some cases, the faucet may simply be old and repairing the faucet might not be the best option. Instead, the homeowner might decide to have a new faucet installed. They can take a look around to determine what kind of faucet they’d prefer, especially if they have an older style in their home and would like to upgrade to a newer style. The plumber can give them suggestions on what types to consider for their home. Once they have chosen the faucet they want, the plumber can install it for them. This, like the repair, is often a quick job once all of the parts are ordered.
