- Leaky faucets are very common and also extremely easy to fix on your own if taken care of at the first sign of trouble. Water is naturally erosive and over time can chip away as it works its way through plumbing fixtures. If you don't nip a leak in the bud, it might ruin your faucet completely. Did you know that slow leaks and drips could waste up to $20 a month in utility costs? Add up a few of those around the house and you are looking at an impressive waste of water. To solve a leak problem, shut-off the water valve beneath the sink. This will cut off the water going to the faucet. Next, with a wrench in hand, loosen the nut holding the faucet head in place. Now, take a look inside of the faucet. You should be able to see a sealant washer inside. This washer sometimes gets warped and uneven. Replacing the washer is the best way to go for a simple fix. Once it is in place, tighten the faucet head back into place and turn the water back on. Your leak should be fixed for good! If not, try searching for information about your faucet model online. Sometimes you can order an inexpensive rebuild kit with instructions. If not, give us a call. Roto-Rooter of Indianapolis is very experienced in these matters.
