  • faucet repairLoud Noises: For those of you with a squeaky faucet, the solution is simple. Take your fixture apart and apply plumber’s grease to the threads of the handle. If your faucet screeches, though, it’s time to replace any worn out washers inside. For any other noise, it’s best to contact a faucet repair expert to investigate.
  • Low Water Pressure: If your kitchen faucet is spitting out water instead of letting out a constant stream, take the aerator off from underneath the fixture and replace it with a new one. If your kitchen sink sprayer is dripping, take it apart and soak the interior components in a mixture of hot water and vinegar.
  • Slow Drip: A leaky faucet is one of the easiest faucet repair jobs to complete. All you have to do is take the fixture apart and check to see if the washers and o-rings are in good condition. If they aren’t, try replacing them, or contact a plumber for assistance.

If you’ve tried to tackle these issues yourself with no success, you may need to call a plumbing contractor to get to the root of the problem. To speak with Al’s Plumbing, call (203) 924-7800 or visit them online.
