For all those who may not be aware, faucets are valves that control the release of liquid or gas. A leaky faucet can cause inconvenience to you with its constant dripping sound, wastage of water and result in high water bills. Such a problem can create many social and environmental issues if not taken care of immediately. Fortunately, with the right tools and guidelines, you can fix this issue yourself, if the damage isn't too severe.
Tools you will need:
-Adjustable wrench; C wrench
-Replacement washers and O-rings
Before you start to make use of your tools, it is important to make sure to turn off the water supply from the main pipeline, to avoid excess leakage. Also, it is crucial to determine what type of faucet it is. There are different types of faucets that are constructed differently, such as:
Remove each part step by step
If the leakage has stopped, you've done a good job! On the other hand, if the leaking still continues, it is best that you call a professional plumber. The causes of the leakage can be much more serious, and to avoid further damage, get it checked by a professional. It may cost you a little extra, but the professional will ensure quality work that will benefit you in the long run.
