Kitchen Sink Faucet Repair
A leaky faucet or garbage disposal plumbing isn’t on the top of many consumers’ lists of ‘impending crises’ in their homes. What danger does a faucet leak present in the first place? At worst, isn’t it merely an annoying drip? In truth, the need for kitchen faucet repair doesn’t exactly spell impending doom, but it does cost you a small fortune.
According to the numbers, leaky faucet repair costs anywhere from $60 – $200 per year. Additionally, consider the environmental factors. If every American house had a one-drop-per-second leak, that potentially wastes 928,000,000 gallons of water…per day.
To make matters worse, many homeowners who call for faucet repair haven’t needed it for a day or for a week. No, most leaks have festered for years. If you’ve put off calling for service, consider this. The service call cost from Wise Choice Plumbing & Rooter pales in comparison to high water bills and unrealized water damage to the home.
Broken Faucets Problems
What we’re trying to convey is that a leaky faucet is more than a nuisance. Our skilled plumbers, not only assist in stopping leaks. These services save you money and give peace of mind. At Wise Choice Plumbing & Rooter, we strive to find the root cause of all leaks to better protect your home.
We consider many factors during repairs, such as the following:
- An O-ring that has loosened, worn, or corroded
- A corroded valve seat that no longer creates a stop-gap between the faucet and spout
- Washers have worn out from rubbing against valve seal
- DIY washer installation not done correctly or the components were the wrong size or type
- Sediments have formed within the inlet and outlet seal assembly causing them to wear out
- More serious pipe or fitting issues
