How do you Repair a Leaky Faucet?

A dripping faucet is one of the most common plumbing problems people may experience. Before you contact a plumber for faucet repair, there are a few things you can try in order to make the fix yourself. First, you should always shut off the water underneath the sink. You then want to disassemble the faucet to look for any pieces that are damaged. Most likely, old washers are the reason the faucet is dripping. Be sure to match the washer size exactly before reassembling.

If your faucet is leaking from the handles, simply pry off the handle by removing the decorative cap. Take off and replace both the O-ring and the seat washer, which are typically the reason faucet handles leak. A dripping faucet can cost as much as $20 a month, so fixing it as soon as possible is a good idea.
