Faucet Replacement & Repair in Lexington & Louisville

Lexington and Louisville have many beautiful older homes. Unfortunately, original sinks and faucets in these homes can begin to break down due to age, wear, and poor maintenance. This can result in deterioration and leaks in your older sinks and faucets.

Some older faucets do not age well, and they can make kitchen and bathroom fixtures look dated and unappealing. Additionally, older faucets were not designed with water-saving features in mind. New faucets marked with the EPA’s WaterSense label offer significant water savings compared to older models.

Even homeowners of newer homes can discover problems with less-expensive faucets. These lower-quality sinks and fixtures can fail prematurely and may not have the aesthetic appeal, water-savings, or features you want for your kitchen or bathroom. A faucet leaking three drops per minute wastes more than 12 gallons of water per month, or 144 gallons yearly.

Don’t let a leaky faucet continue to sink your water bill. Instead, call a professional plumber to handle the job. Dauenhauer can provide expert faucet repair and replacement services in Lexington and Louisville.

What Causes Leaky Faucets?

There are many different things that can cause a faucet to leak. The most common culprits are deteriorated rubber washers, poor pipe connections, broken plastic components, and poor installation.

Rubber washers and O-rings are made of rubber. The rubber helps make a tight seal, preventing water from leaking. While rubber is resistant to corrosion, it can be susceptible to hard water, chemicals, and age. Over time, any rubber washer will deteriorate enough to no longer be effective. A deteriorated O-ring can cause a faucet to leak near the handle.

Pipe connections under your sink can be overtightened, which can leak due to the stripping of the threads. These stripped threads no longer provide a tight seal and can then leak water.

Contact Dauenhauer for expert faucet repairs in Lexington & Louisville, and we can diagnose and fix any of these problems.
