Dousman's Best Plumbers Explain How to Fix a Leaky Faucet, Dousman, Wisconsin

Although it’s one of the most common problems plumbers get calls about, the majority of the time, a leaky faucet is a problem homeowners can fix on their own. Whether it’s an old part that simply needs replacing or the result of mineral buildup, the professional plumbing contractors at Traditional Plumbing know how to deal with leaky faucets in Dousman, WI.

So before you pick up the phone, Traditional Plumbing recommends following these six easy steps to try and remedy your situation:

  • Examine: Examine your faucet and pipes to see if you can figure out where the leak is coming from.
  • Turn The Water Off: Even if you haven’t found any evidence of what’s causing the leaky faucet, you’ll need to shut off the water valve. This will most likely be located underneath the sink.
  • leaky faucetCover The Drain: After you’ve shut the water off, be sure to cover the drain with a cloth or strainer so no small parts will get lost.
  • Take The Sink Apart: Using a screwdriver or an Allen wrench, begin disassembling your sink. It’s easiest to set the parts aside in the order you take them off so you know which order to put them back on in.
  • Inspect: Once all the parts are off, inspect the inside of your drain for any damage or mineral remnants. Damaged parts can often be replaced, and mineral remnants can be loosened with vinegar.
  • Reassemble: Reassemble the faucet and turn the water back on. Run the water until all the air is out of the pipes and see if the problem is fixed.

If the leaky faucet problem persists or you need a plumbing contractor to purchase new parts from, give the trained, experienced professionals at Traditional Plumbing a call today at (262) 470-1228.
