Outdoor Faucet Repair Services
How often do you use the outdoor faucets at your home? During warmer months, homeowners use exterior spigots often to water lawns, wash cars, fill pools, etc. With increased usage comes an increased chance of damage. Outdoor faucets have the potential to leak like indoor faucets, but these outdoor leaks aren’t always noticed right away. Or, homeowners ignore the leaks because they are outside and aren’t going to cause any damage. Or, can they? Without swift outdoor faucet repairs, flooding, foundation problems, and an array of other problems occur.
Don’t fret, though! If you need help, call Wise Choice Plumbing & Rooter. We offer a full list of outdoor plumbing services to help you keep your home dry and intact. Keep reading to learn about some of the services we offer.

Sewer Plumbing Services
Although rare, in some cases outdoor faucet leaks may be related to a broken water pipe or sewer line. If this is the case, Wise Choice Plumbing & Rooter plumbers offer emergency sewer repair services. Hearing a plumber say that you need sewer repair is not ideal. Let us assure you, if this is the case, that we offer trenchless sewer line repair. This repair method is less invasive than traditional dig-and-repair methods, but just as effective and highly cost-effect.
Outdoor Faucet Maintenance Tips
Homeowners aren’t powerless when it comes to preventing outdoor faucet leaks.
Here are some tips to help you keep this component of your plumbing system working well:
- Check outdoor faucets and hose bibs regularly to ensure proper function.
- Disconnect garden hoses when not in use.
- Low pressure is a sign that a leak may exist. Have this checked.
- Winterize outdoor faucets by disconnecting the hose. While Southern California doesn’t freeze like other areas of the country, we know that some of our customers have vacation homes in parts of California or other states that may experience extreme winter temperatures. If this applies to you, take care of your outdoor faucets to prevent surprise damage and costs.
