The most obvious reason for a faucet repair is a leak. Leaks can be annoying, but they can also be costly. Daily wear and tear can cause fittings and washers to become loose or dislodged and lead to drips that cause corrosion, increase water consumption and water bills.
Here are other signs that you may need faucet repair:
- The kitchen sink sprayer trickles instead of spraying
- The seals on your faucets become worn or cracked
- Your aerator becomes clogged or shows signs of mineral buildup
- Your faucet clangs or makes other noises when water is flowing
