Outdoor Faucet Repair and Plumbing Services

When was the last time you used your outdoor faucet? If you're like most homeowners, you probably need it fairly often, at least during the warmer seasons. People use their outdoor faucets for a variety of reasons, from watering the garden to washing the car. In fact, many homeowners utilize their outdoor faucets more than they realize. But like indoor faucets, the ones outside your home sometimes become damaged or start leaking, which can lead to flooding, higher water bills and an array of other problems. Luckily, Roto-Rooter's list of outdoor plumbing services includes several that have to do with your outdoor faucet, which means we can solve whatever problem you may have. Take a look at some of the services we provide:

Outdoor faucet plumbing services

When outdoor spigots start to leak, it can cause some serious issues for homeowners, which is why it's so important to solve the problem immediately, rather than putting it off. Roto-Rooter plumbing and drain professionals are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help with emergency residential plumbing issues, so schedule a service as soon as you notice a leak. Here's what the Roto-Rooter professional will do about your leaking outdoor faucet:

  • Figure out why the faucet is leaking: There are several reasons your faucet may be leaking, from improper installation to worn or corroded parts to damage in your sewer line.
  • Disassemble the faucet: If the leak has to do with the faucet itself, a Roto-Rooter plumber will quickly take apart the faucet and remove the faulty part. 
  • Supply any needed replacement parts: Roto-Rooter plumbing and drain professionals come fully equipped with replacement parts, tools and anything else they need to do most plumbing services. Yours will supply the replacement part you need for your outdoor faucet.
  • Put the faucet back together: Then, the Roto-Rooter professional will reassemble your faucet so that it's back to normal and leak-free.

Roto-Rooter plumbing and drain professionals can also install a new outdoor spigot or replace an existing one. 

Sewer plumbing services

In extreme cases, an outdoor faucet may be leaking due to a cracked or damaged pipe in the water or sewer lines that run under your property. In that situation, Roto-Rooter professionals will perform emergency sewer repair services. While traditional sewer repair involves digging out the yard or driveway to access the sewer line, Roto-Rooter can now perform what's called trenchless sewer repair using state-of-the-art technologies. He or she will either fix or replace the water or sewer pipe or reline it with tough epoxy materials that are less likely to become damaged.

Outdoor faucet maintenance tips

There are a few ways you can maintain your outdoor spigot to keep it working properly throughout the year. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Check your outdoor faucets and hose bibs regularly to make sure they are running properly. Leaks and low pressure are both signs that something could be wrong with your faucet or sewer line.
  • If you live in a cold climate, you should consider winterizing your outdoor faucets. That means unattaching the hose, letting it drain and installing a cover over the spigot. Leaving a hose full of water attached to your faucet could cause the water in the hose - as well as the water in the pipes leading into your home - to freeze and potentially burst. 

If you're not comfortable performing DIY faucet fixes or maintenance, give Roto-Rooter a call or schedule a service online, and we'll send a plumbing and drain professional your way.
