Each faucet control or lever includes an internal mechanism that contains plungers, gaskets and seats. An experienced plumber examines each of the pieces to determine its condition and whether it needs to be adjusted or replaced. Most manufacturers have parts available to make repairs unless the faucet is extremely old or obsolete.
The cost of repair can be affected by several factors.
A leaky, inoperable faucet is frustrating, and it can also impact utility bills. Ineffective repairs can lead to leaks inside the wall which causes costly water damage. Calling on a plumber for professional service ensures that the repairs are effective and long-lasting, saving homeowners money.
